“Cleanliness and hygiene are extremely lacking at this property!”

Below is a message i sent to the owner upon my return home and as yet i have had no response and if i am being honest, i didn't really expect a reply, now that they have had our money!

Hi John,

Now back from our holiday where we stayed in your villa and would like to share a few points with you.

On arrival we collected the keys from a very unenthusiastic and less than welcoming key holder which set the tone for what was to come. Being a late arrival we decided that we would get some sleep and look around in the morning.

The following morning, in the cold light of day it became apparent that the villa would not live up to the images which we saw online. The location and style of villa is excellent, however, the fit and finish is somewhat lacking and had we known the condition of the property beforehand, we would never have booked it.

The villa, cutlery, work surfaces, plates and kitchen units were not clean at all as you would expect, meaning we had to start cleaning before we could use things. Noticing that both the fridge and freezer door handles were broken off gave us the distinct impression that this property is not looked after and bearing in mind that where the handles had broken off were rusty, it must have been this way for some time.

The light fitting in the kitchen was broken, the part which holds the glass cover which could be dangerous if this was to fall onto someone. One of the bar stools seats was broken into two pieces, again just giving the general impression that this villa is there simply to generate an income and not there for the comfort of the paying guests. The blind at the kitchen window with it's bent slats was also filthy / rusty at the bottom of it.

In the living room the sofa too was filthy, not so carefully disguised by the dirty cream coloured throws which were placed on top. On returning back to the villa on one particular evening i found myself having to chase a cockroach which had decided to take up residency. This led me to pulling out the sofa has it had decided to hide under there.

What an experience that was! Upon pulling out the sofa and eventually killing the cockroach, i discovered a further 3 dead cockroaches, an empty Chorizo pack, a dogs squeaky toy and a dogs half chewed bone...delightful! This was shown to Chris on her arrival to sort out the air con.

Moving up the staircase there is also a sizeable crack in the wall long with numerous spots where the plaster work has been chipped and damaged.

The bathroom had numerous empty bottles of shampoo and shower gel left by the bath complete with a half used bar of soap, sat in a less than desireable soap dish. The light fitting in the bathroom had no glass cover to it at all, the light bulb and wiring all on show.

In the second bedroom it came at no surprise to see that the right-hand curtain was actually back to front. Along with a portable air con unit which actually heated up the room rather than cooling it down.

In the main bedroom initially the air con unit was broken, however, thankfully this was fixed, only to find that the pipe outside which carried away the condensed water was split and rather than flow into collection bottle on the balcony, it ran down the outside roof onto the porch floor, where we had to place a bottle to collect the water as it made the porch extremely slippery.

The lack of care and attention continued in this room where the small window had a curtain rail above it. Where the rail is fixed to the wall on the left, the bracket had come loose and rather than have this taken down and refitted, a folded piece of card had been pushed behind the bracket to pack it out. The right-hand side was not fixed at all as this side of the curtain rail was just resting on top of the curtain rail which was above the doors out to the balcony.

Although you state within the terms on Holiday Lettings that no pets are allowed, having discovered the dog bone under the sofa and after speaking to other holidaymakers who confirmed that the family prior to our stay did have a dog present as it was actually seen in the pool too.

All in all the location and style of the villa has the potential to be THE best within the block, however, the general state of this property shows it to be potentially the worst.

Cleanliness, hygiene and safety should be top priority for rental properties, this was definitely not the case here. I am sure that i am not the first to raise these issues and had i or anyone else known of the true state of this property beforehand, no bookings would be made. I for one would not return to the villa for a stay in it's current state and would certainly not recommend it to anyone.

I took numerous photos of the issues stated above, which i can email to you if you have an email address. I would also welcome any feedback from you too on the issues which i have raised.

Regards,

Garry.

“Great place to stay with lots to do close by *****”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed here for a week and it was great. The immediate area is nice and peaceful and we didn't have to go far for great food, bars or shops. The Villa is a good size, comfortable, clean and with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing SC holiday, with the pool just outside we had a fantastic time and didn't feel the need to leave the Villa much to be honest! We would definitely stay here again.
