“DO NOT BOOK THIS VILLA... IT IS NOT VILLA PAVAO”
Reviewed 10 October 2018 for a stay in August 2018

person found this review helpful

The Villa on the pictures is NOTHING LIKE Villa Pavao. Villa Pavao is tired and in desperate need of refurbishing. If it lets me I will add photos of the real place. The POOL TABLE must be 10 years old and is ripped and you could never play on it. The sun beds are tired and some are broken, there are NO umbrellas, and there is only seating for 6 people outside even though it advertises as a villa for 12 people. The owners are totally unprofessional as they refuse to call back when messages are left (once they have your money that is). Do not rely on Tripadvisor to do anything as they are fully aware that they falsely advertising these villas, and Paypal only cover you for the "service" they are providing, so even though we produced photographic evidence of false advertising they were not willing to do anything. My advice would be to:
1. NEVER BOOK THROUGH TRIPADVISOR
2. DO NOT BOOK ANYTHING UNDER COLUMBIA ESTATES (They own a number of villas and they advertise pictures of the best rooms or pool areas etc and say they are the Villa you are rentin).
3. DO NOT THINK YOU ARE COVERED FOR ANY FALSE ADVERTISING IF YOU ARE PAYING THROUGH PAYPAL.

11 lads stayed here for a stag do. Was a little apprehensive after reading all the reviews about the robberies.
We thankfully didn’t experience this but we took all money, phones etc out with us.
Villa is in the perfect location. A minutes walk onto the strip and a 10 minute walk to the beach.
Villa is good. But the ground outside with a huge pool is where you’ll be spending most of your time is the best part.
Note: the pictures are not of the Villa.
Owners were flexible with us regarding extra beds and check out times.
Would recommend for a stag/hen party.

Stayed here at 30th May-4th June...
When arriving at the the Villa it was shabby and not as advertised. We also raised security issues with the site Manager Miguel who said that there would be security staff at the weekend, and that they had installed a camera inside the lounge area as the Villa had been broken into 3 weeks previous. The main gate at the front was not locked and anyone could roam around the 3 Villas. We were very vigilant at all times ensuring cash and personal belongings were in the safe and everywhere was locked up when going out. We went out to watch an England game for 2 hours on the Saturday afternoon and on return as we were walking up the road there was a van outside the gate with a guy acting suspiciously making hand signals and had a golf club propped up against the van. He ignored us as we went through the gate and we saw some of our personal belongings scattered on the drive (hats, sunglasses and leather bracelets) The back door had been smashed (with a lot of glass on the outside not the inside) and chunks of plaster smashed out of the wall next to patio door. The safe had been cranked open and all of the cash taken! I went outside to confront the guy at the gate who told me he was security and had called the police and Miguel. Police and Miguel arrived, Miguel told the police he could see movement on the CCTV camera but no images of anyone. He also said the burglary took place at 4pm but we were still there at that time getting sorted to go out and watch the game so wasn't sure what he was trying to get at! I spent the evening at the police station who said that it is happening more and more often. I called the owner on return to England who hung up on me as he said I was questioning the integrity of his staff. Having read the latest reviews it has happened to others too and other Villas and always cash. I have also e-mailed the company with my statement of events and had no response. These villas need something done about the security. Draw your own conclusions!
