Left on 05/11/2014 for a stay in April 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed May 11, 2014Stayed Apr 2014
On the second night of our stay at the Villa Camilla Guest House, my fiancée and I were robbed shortly after we went to bed. Someone climbed onto the roof, disassembled one of the plastic paneled windows, cut the screen, and then slid into the apartment. We woke up to what sounded like an animal rooting around. We believe they cased the place before we arrived and waited until we went to sleep to break in. After calling the cops and the villa's security company, we left the villa and stayed at a nearby resort where we knew we would be safe for the remainder of our vacation. After spending more time on the island, we discovered that the big resorts near the villa have guards patrolling the premises and fences protecting their guests. By contrast, Villa Camilla is exposed, with no gates or fences and a security system that is not adequate to protect guests
The worst part of the experience was how the owners of the Villa behaved in the aftermath. When they finally got in touch with the owners, tried to turn the blame on us for not using a setting (the "stay" function) of the villa's alarm system that was never demonstrated to us, and which, more importantly, wouldn't have made a difference. The robbers slid gingerly underneath the alarm bar that is supposed to protect against entry through the lower windows, and therefore would not have triggered the alarm even if it had been set to the "stay" function. In fact, when the security company arrived to investigate the break-in, they couldn't even figure out how the intruders entered the building because the front door was locked and the alarm system totally intact. Despite all of this, the owners refused to provide any refund even though we stayed only 1 of the 4 nights for which we paid. In fact, the owners demanded that we pay them for the costs of repairing the plastic window panels and screen and replacing the items that were stolen from the villa.
