We booked this villa so that our large family could all go away together to celebrate a 60th birthday. After reading all that the villa had to offer online we were all looking forward to a relaxing break.
Upon our arrival we were all pleasantly surprised. The villa is a good size and the open plan living works well for large groups. Once we all had had a look around it was time to decide who would sleep where. It soon became apparent that the single beds,( which would be an obvious choice for the children) were all located away from the main house. In addition to this the doors to their bedroom opened out directly onto the pool. The other door opened out onto the front of the property. As our children were between the ages of 3-8 this was not suitable, and I found this disappointing.
The kitchen was well equipped however I was slightly concerned that all of the plugs (kettle/toaster etc) all ran off one extension lead. A few more main plug sockets are needed.
The description of the villa stated that it had been recently refurbished. For this I would have expected a higher standard. There are cracks in the tiles, the mosquito nets on the windows are damaged, some windows were cracked and the wok hob was cracked. Also fixtures and fittings were lose. It was little things like this that let the villa down.
The villa was clean and tidy and the pool man attended daily to clean the pool. (You don't even notice he's there, very discrete) the outdoor space is fantastic and there are plenty of sun loungers and tables and chairs.
The clue is in the title for this area. It's all about golf. There's not much else going on. There are a handful of restaurants to eat out at night. We found only one to be great value and beautiful food. The staff looked after all of their customers well. The local shop is very pricey. My advice would be to travel by taxi to the local supermarket and get all of your goods at the start of the week.
On our last day the owner allowed us to stop in the villa for the day which was lovely as our flights were late evening.
This is a nice villa but it could be excellent if it was maintained as well as stated in its write up. It suits adults or families with older children.
