What Past Guests Are Saying
Great Villa but Check Before you Go!
Yes, this villa is lovely : great position on the right side of alcudia (which is walkable) and very close to a beach which is a mix of sand and rocks but very safe for children where there is a somewhat tacky but very handy beachbar. Great views of the mountains from the villa, great outside spaces to eat and relax, great pool and well equipped kitchen. On the far side of alcudia is a very good supermarket (it would have been nice to have information about various things like this in the villa) and beyond is the very busy port and beaches of Pollensia where the sand is ideal for children with a very safe, attractive bay area where the water is warm and shallow and there are loungers and parasols which can be rented for the day. There are some good, some tacky, shops and the bars and restaurants off the main drag are preferable if you want to get away from the noise! All this meant that our villa was very well placed and peaceful in a very quiet residential area so it was very good in this way. Villa Parade list this villa as one of their Platinum villas but in view of the following, this is not a fair description.
We went from 9th to 16th June 2012 and would be interested to know if anyone else has had a similar experience to ours regarding what was wrong with the villa and if anything has since been done to rectify our list of things as follows:
We arrived at three fifteen expecting to be able to get into the villa only to find the cleaners still in residence and were told to come back in an hour - not much fun when you have little children in tow. The cleaning was therefore probably rushed and the patio furniture wasnt moved to clean underneath.
The entrance gate was broken and could not be shut so there was no security for the children as mentioned in the brochure. The garage door was also broken and could not be shut and since there was access to the inside of the villa via a staircase from the garage which was only secured by an easily forced lock, this was another security issue.
The downstairs jacuzzi bathroom door would not open from the inside once the door had been shut (even though there was no lock on the door either) thus trapping inside anyone using it and very frightening for young children when trapped in there! The only way out was through the window onto the terrace This was reported to the local office on the day after we arrived but no-one came until Tuesday and we were then told it could not be fixed!
There were two safety deposit boxes, neither of which worked and one was down in the utility room which had open access to the garage and therefore accessible from the street! Certainly not a safe place to leave anything valuable. Since we paid £15 for the minor breakage charge/safety deposit box rental, this was a nonsense!
The towels were certainly not up to the standard of even a three star hotel since they were grubby grey and stained even before we used them. They were a mixture of good and bad with the bad being almost threadbare (one tore as soon as my husband tried to dry his back) and although they were changed on Wednesday the mix was just the same. I would have preferred to have brought my own – not exactly platinum standard!
The BBQ was broken and therefore hot residue from the cooking would leak on to the patio.
It took three days for the air-conditioning in our bedroom to be mended. It wasn't working from the time we arrived and although we reported it, it must have been broken before the last visitors.
Apart from one hook in each of the bathrooms, there are no shelves at all so nowhere to put even a toothbrush except on the floor and nowhere to hang the towels apart from the one hook! Hardly a luxury fitted bathroom.
The WiFi did not work on our arrival and although it was fixed on the Monday, this surely must have been reported by the previous tenants.
We complained about all these things and nothing was rectified during our stay and we were never visited by the Villa Parade representative to whom we reported these problems during our stay, which was the least we would have expected in the circumstances.
Other smaller issues were that the Ipod dock did not work, one hair drier did not work and some bulbs were broken. We also felt the specific instructions for the house were inadequate with no details on the hot tub nor information about the local area and beaches. Dont be fooled by the look of the inside furniture - the sofa has a somewhat grubby orange throw over it to hide its age!
Although this is a very nice villa and would probably recommend it, I would strongly advise that you check with Villa Parade before booking that the important security and safety features have been rectified (get it in writing too even though their administration in replying to e-mails is very bad) and that something has been done about the smaller details listed above!
