We have just returned from our stay at this Villa. The views from this property are absolutely stunning and the location, although a little far from the sea, is still very commutable. We went to Marbella several times and even ventured up to Gibralta, which is well worth a visit. The Villa is very well designed and has an excellent Kitchen which has everything you need, a lot of thought has gone into this.
The down sides are:
The towells supplied were as hard and rough as sandpaper - we had to wash them before use.
The Pillows smelt damp and musty, upon inspection they were in a disgusting state, yellow stains all over - Uck. Need throwing away and replacing regularly. We know people sweat in the heat, but who puts a pillowcase on a smelly dirty pillow!
The toilets constantly smelt of sewage, there was a bottle of bleach in each toilet, which we had to use daily, also used a lot of air fresheners.
There were no cushions on the plastic sun beds, very hard to lie down and sunbathe. We did telephone the housekeeper to see if they were hidden away - none materialised. Great shame as most of us go away to sunbathe.
We were there 10 days, the bed linen was not changed.despite me emailing before our journey asking if the laundry would be changed and I was assured that it would be. Again, had to wash them ourselves.
Almost all the neighbours had 2 or more dogs and the noise of barking was constantly there day and night. The Spanish do not seem bothered. But the barking did keep you awake at night.
The pool was a little on the small side, but nevertheless it was thoroughly enjoyed by us all. However, the shower by the pool did not work and there was moss growing on the tiles inside the pool.
The general state of the gardens and poolside are in desperate need of attention, the fence at the bottom of the pool area kept blowing down and my husband tried to repair it on numerous occasions, however in the end he just rolled it up. This solved the problem, but of course we lost our privacy.
The Villa is lovely, the owners have put a lot of thought into it, they just need to ensure that the Property Services managing the property on there behalf are doing there job,
