“Enjoyable stay with a few niggles”
Reviewed 17 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We traveled as a party consisting of six adults, two small children and two babies. Our stay was from 25th January 2017 for 11 nights.

There are some negatives in my review but these should not distract from what we found to be a very enjoyable holiday. I mention these mainly so that Catherine can improve on what is a very nice holiday home.

We used Lastminute travel for our private transfer, as recommended by Catherine. The return private transfer cost €120 and was fast and efficient but the guarantee of child seats did not materialise.

The villa is situated about 20 minutes walk down to the beach. The very nice town centre and marina with many nice restaurants were a further 10 minutes walk along the pleasant traffic free coastal pathway in either direction. The nearest reasonable size shop was the Hiperdino near the Princess Yaiza hotel which was about 15 minutes walk. Taxis back to the villa were available for just over €3.

The area around the villa is residential with a good number of holiday rentals. There are some part built villas in the area as a result of the property crash. This did however mean that there was no buildings immediately in front of the villa. The local roads have not yet had the final surface laid resulting in very high kerbs and raised ironworks, but the street lighting is working.

You enter the villa via the spacious TV lounge which leads to the open plan dining room and kitchen with doors out onto the dining terrace. The dining terrace is a little cramped when seated at the table but we managed. The ground floor also has one double bedroom and one family bathroom. This bedroom was missing a ceiling light with wires hanging down. Stairs lead from the ground floor down to the lower floor where there are two twin bedrooms, one family bathroom and one very large double bedroom with doors leading out to the lower terrace where you will find the pool table. Another set of stairs from the ground floor leads up the the double ensuite which has a small balcony with mountain and distant sea views. We found that there was ample hanging space in the bedrooms but draw space was limited.

There were child gates provided between the lounge and the stairs and also at the bottom of the stairs on the lower floor. Catherine had confirmed that these were available prior to us making our booking but unfortunately both of the gates were broken and the local management team were unable to repair them.

All the bathrooms have a shower over a bath which suited us for bathing the children. The kitchen is well equipped with everything that you need to prepare meals and includes a dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge and freezer.

The pool terrace is accessed by steps down from the kitchen terrace or steps up from the lower terrace. There is a gate onto the pool terrace to keep the young children from the pool, however there is nothing to stop young children from getting onto the steps. Gates at the top and bottom of these outside steps would be a major improvement.

The pool terrace had ample sun loungers and a rattan seating area with cushions which we found very useful and comfortable. The swimming pool has a shallow end which is ideal for the children which was accessed by steps. This was walled off from the main part of the pool which was accessed by a further set of steps. The pool is deep enough for swimming whilst you never go out of you depth which made it ideal for pool games. We paid for pool heating which generally made it very pleasant. We also paid for the hot tub which was very nice, although it did trip the electrics one day. The pool man came twice during our stay and kept the pool and hot tub clean. There were three parasols for shade but we found that one of these was broken and the other two were barely adequate. We did ask Catherine about the provision shade prior to booking the villa knowing that we would have two babies with us. She said that she was having some shade sails installed but these have not materialised. There is a nice BBQ provided that we used twice during our stay. Outside lighting was limited to the dining terrace so using the BBQ after dark was not very good and safety around the pool was compromised.

Bathroom and pool towels were provided and were changed along with the bedding once during our stay. Day 8 change for our 11 night stay was a little late.

We hired three travel cots for our stay but only one was provided with a mattress and they needed a good clean. The local management team came and cleaned the cots but were unable to provide two further mattresses. We were forced to utilise bedding from the unused beds which was less than ideal.

Our £250 breakages deposit was refunded as expected.

Overall we enjoyed our stay but next time we would probably look for a villa closer to the coastal path.

Management Response

Thank you very much for your detailed review. It's always welcome. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay at our villa despite experiencing some problems.

I'm sorry about the transfer to the airport. I have used this company many times in the past, as have many of our previous guests, and have had no issues with them whatsoever. They are a very reliable and professional company so I can only apologize on behalf of this independent company for the inconvenience they caused.

Regarding the various issues with the villa (broken gates, parasol, cots, missing light), I sincerely apologize for this. We have a new management team working with us and are currently training them to maintain our villas up to our usual high standard. The light in the bedroom has now been fixed, new stair gates and new parasols where purchased by me the same day that I was informed by my new management team and were placed in the villa during your stay. With regards to “lack of draw” space, I will be purchasing two more sets, although I do have 10 draws in the 5th bedroom, 4 draws in the 4th bedroom, 4 draws in 3rd bedroom together with wardrobes. The other two bedrooms have large wardrobes.

We are always looking to improve our villas and guests experience, so we appreciate the suggestions you made.

What I am very pleased to see in your review is your confirmation that the walk to the beach is only 20 minutes and that the nearest supermarket is 15 mins, and also the price for taxi fares.

“Excellent Holiday!”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We travelled as 4 adults and 3 teenagers and the 5 bedroomed villa was plenty big enough for us all. Kids had a bedroom each which was perfect. Its the first time some of us had done a villa holiday and it was the most relaxed holiday ever. Outside area was great with plenty of sunbeds, hot tub and pool big enough for us all. New seating area next to the hot tub was great too. Kitchen was full of all necessary equipment required for a self catering holiday. Great that bath and beach towels are provided.
The villa is a good 20 mins walk down to the beach, shops, restaurants etc and we walked every evening. You can get taxis back if required but we also enjoyed the walk back after having eaten.
We hired bicycles and mopeds for a few days from Sunny Rent, just up from The Ice House bar at the Papagayo Shopping Centre. They were really helpful. Was good to explore a bit more of the island.
Favourite places to eat were the Ice House (amazing kebabs) and Asiatico (brilliant Chinese/Oriental with fantastic staff!).
Dawn and Keith from the Management Company were great and any issues we had were swiftly sorted.
Would definitely recommend.

“A well placed base”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Just returned from a lovely stay at J10 villa. It is ideally placed for Rubicón and Playa Blanca old town. The gated pool made it safe for the little ones. There are some great restaurants and lots of beaches to choose from. We all had a stay and would book this villa again.
