“Not a luxury villa”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015
3
people found this review helpful

I have just stayed at this villa and it is not a luxury villa, I have stayed in many villas over the years and this one I was hoping to be wit especial but I was disappointed with the villa. On arrival there was no one to great our party in fact we didn't see anyone until the pool man came 3/4 into our holiday. There was a folder located in the living area with brief information in it. There was no information on the nearest supermarket which was poor as there was not even have a bottle of water in the fridge for us on our arrival. We had to drive around the town and luckily a kind local man showed us the way to the supermarket.
The villa is described a having air conditioning but there is only 1 air con unit which is located in a study room off the living area, there is no air con in any other rooms. There are ants all through the kitchen, you can't make any food up on the kitchen tops it all has to be done on plates. The ants are also in the cupboards so it's best to keep all food in the fridge. The main bathroom and 2nd and 3rd bedroom have ants too. The window of the master bedroom opens onto an alleyway so you can't have the window opened as anyone walking past can see into the bedroom.
The outside area is nice although the seats to the outdoor dining area are really grubby. The pool is a mess, the paint on the bottom of the pool is chipping off and is sharp on your feet if you catch a pieces kicking up in the pool. The pool has marble all around the edge of it which is deadly when it gets wet, luckily no one in my party hurt themselves although there was quite a few slips.
The villa is secluded, the villa next to it is disused and has been vandalised, we didn't have any problems though due to this.
The villa is also described as having a parking area, there is parking but it is not on the villa premises it is at the end of a street and you have to walk down a path to the villa, which is a struggle if you have a lot of shopping to take in.
The town of Playa. Blanca is only a 10 minute walk, if you go to the back of the villa there is some waste ground that you can walk down to town, the town is very nice and has a number of shops and restaurants, Playa. Dorada beach is beautiful and you can do a number of water sports on this beach.
To sum up, Playa. Blanca is a lovely holiday destination but I would not return to this villa.

“nice villa”

This is a fantastic villa with everything you could possibly need. We have not gave a perfect score however as there are a couple flaws that can be easily addressed. The location was as instructed and we found quite easily even though we thought the security gate would be locked as stated we found that it was never closed throughout our stay. Gaining access to patio doors not easy as lock is tricky. The security camera trained on patio doors unnerved us at first thinking that security must be an issue but this is not the case safety is not an issue but camera added to feeling of safety and can be switched off if you require. Our biggest issue here was Mosquitos and if you are susceptible to bites good sprays are required we spent a few sleepless night with bites and odd one buzzing us at night. we were fortunate as sprays had been left for use. we may just have been unlucky in the timing of our visit. The pool area needs a little TLC. The paint in the pool peeling and flakes catching your feet at certain parts of pool. The jacuzzi was slightly disappointing the button for bubbles Broken and water not as warm at night to be able to relax with a wine or two. There was no lighting for pool or jacuzzi and light in pool was detached from fixings. The tree next to pool although beautiful it kept shedding leaves and petals into pool and patio area which we cleaned constantly. Again this may be down to timing of our visit. Even when solar water heater broke down and we lost hot water and electricity the owner solved this issue quickly and an engineer was on site within the hour and although he had to spend the day fixing the problem it was done in a professional manner. This is a lovely villa and well worth a stay although even with these small flaws if addressed this villa would get a perfect score

I'm the new villa manager and look after a number of villas for a few owners on this site. I can assure you that there is no way of removing reviews from this site. Sorry you didn't have a good time back in March, if you return I can assure you that this villa is definitely now one of the best in Playa Blanca :)

“Large villa in private grounds”
Reviewed 4 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The outside area and the fab photos on the site will encourage you to book this villa. Unfortunately I have to agree with a lot of the comments on the last review. The garden area is large, plenty of sun loungers, the pool is a good size but too deep, especially for those with younger children as no shallow end, plus steep steps for accessing the pool. It would also look better if pool toys and cleaning equipment could be stored out of sight, perhaps in a storage box as there is plenty of space for one.
Did not like the main bedroom, strange going through utility area to enter it, plus the fact that the window opens on the alley behind the villa made us reluctant to open bedroom window to air the room, good shower though in ensuite.
Really think the owner could do with upgrading curtains in all bedrooms, ideally to those with black out linings. I actually thought it was a shower curtain hanging at the 3rd bedroom window, though closer inspection revealed it wasn't, and the curtain didn't cover the width of window, so no lie-ins for parents with children sleeping in this room as they'd be awake as soon as sun rose.
There is nothing the owner can do about the adjoining villa being abandoned and by the looks of it being occupied by homeless people, (we went for a nosy seeing as the patio door had been removed and were shocked to see mattresses on the floor), it was a little disconcerting. Having said that the the walls on the villa are high with a locked entrance gate and provide great privacy.
The owner had provided lots of equipment so you can watch british tv, follow the instructions and it is available. Great music system, allowing you to play music on external speakers whilst in garden area and fab wifi connection.
In the welcome book the owner suggests guests leaving items for other guests to use and we agree with that. A welcome pack of cleaning goods would have ideal such as washing up liquid and cleaning sponge/cloth but there was nothing left. On our departure we have left washing up liquid, sponges, washing machine liquid and conditioner, insect spray, these were all items we purchased for use during our stay but couldn't possibly use up before departure so hopefully the next guests will be able to use them.
Ian has a good support team over there, Laura came round promptly when we mentioned a problem to her and she also arranged for a very prompt visit from the maintenance man when we couldn't get the jacuzzi to work.
The villa is roughly a ten minute walk in to town if you use the short cut going along the alley at the side of the villa, you're walking over a rough path but it's a lot quicker than using the main paths and roads from the villa. If you have a car then there is a free car park just as you drive in to Playa Blanca and a short walk from there to the shops, restaurants and seafront.
The weather was unseasonably cold the first few days when we were there, luckily there was a radiator we could plug in in the bedroom, couldn't find any heating for the main living area. Later on in the week we spotted an air conditioning unit in the small office but no units elsewhere in the villa so not sure if we had activated that whether it would have heated the main living area?
We really enjoyed Playa Blanca and our holiday but would look for a better location if we were to holiday here again.

My partner and I have rented many villas in playa blanca over the last 4 years this one was not one of the better ones firstly we did not like the area or the estate it was on its a bit like a rabbit warren lots of alley ways / passage ways walking round I would think about 30% of the villas are derelict/empty including the attached villa next door it had mattress on bedroom floor but nothing caused us any problems we always left both TVs on and lots of lights when we went out at night on arrival the entrance gate was broken off one hinge but a call to the maintenance Man and it was fixed so that we were able to lock it we have never had to walk through a utility room to get to the master bedroom and I did not like the fact that the bedroom window was on the alley way behind when people walked by late at night talking it woke us up also never had only 1 door/entrance to a property before with a cc tv camera on them mmmmmm personally I don't want to see mops/buckets dustpans and kids inflatables all on display they could either go in the small office or be put away in a storage unit for people to get out if they want them now were not thick but 6 different remotes to operate the tv "system" is a bit to much but the wifi did work very well the pool was always nice and warm although the steps in are very steep difficult for little ones I would think also the paint is coming of the bottom in places there are only 2 proper wine glasses in the unit but plenty of everything else kitchen wise Laura the villa manager was lovely and does a very good job with what she has but for the money you
