Such a pretty villa! Great location close to shops & restaurants. The management staff - Hari was very accommodating & super helpful, late checkout wasn't a problem. The villa was always clean and kept tidy with beds made everyday from the lovely Iluh, she was just gorgeous turning up every morning with a big beautiful smile. The large bifold sliding doors can be kept open to have an open air easy access to the pool or closed which helps create a cool peaceful lounge area to relax in. All the bedrooms were lovely and beds comfortable each with their own large ensuite, wardrobes and a safe. The master upstairs was huge with a king bed & TV, the 2 bedrooms downstairs were perfect - bedroom 2 had 2 x double beds & bedroom 3 was the smallest (king single bed) but fine for 1 person. You can hear some music coming from the local bars at night but not too loud, just happy sounds. We had a fantastic girls trip away and will miss sitting in the pool with a glass in hand. Would stay here again, easy!
Stay here! You are close to everything. We loved our stay here. Friendly staff. Great food. Definitely will be back soon! Thanks :)
This is a lovely villa. Well equipped, good layout, lovely design. However, it is only suitable for a certain type of traveller — young people who like to relax in the villa all day and party all night, due to the ridiculously loud dance music coming from the La Favela nightclub situated literally next door. It is completely unsuitable for families.
We were very disappointed that this fact was not included in any of the official descriptions of the property, and never mentioned at the time of booking or when I organised a pool fence and cot for my baby. It is one thing to know in advance that the villa is next to a nightclub and go ahead with the booking; however it is entirely different when it is never mentioned prior to arrival. And what's more, it is listed as a child-friendly villa. This is irresponsible and disappointing.
The music starts at midnight and goes EVERY NIGHT until 3am; and on weekends til 4am. It completely ruined our holiday. If I didn't have three kids under 5, I would have joined the party. But I do, so I had no option but to stay in the villa counting down the minutes until the noise stopped. I raised this with the management company while staying there and I got a half-hearted reply that we were staying in a lively area with noise expected from cafes and restaurants. No acknowledgement that it was a nightclub playing electronic dance music, rap music and heavy metal with deep bass at booming volumes not a cafe playing relaxed chillout tunes. I was given no alternative solutions and my second email to them was ignored. Terrible customer service.
It is a real shame as the villa is indeed lovely and the resident housekeeper Illu is gorgeous and so sweet. However, the fact remains, this should never be marketed as a family-friendly villa as the location next to a nightclub is impossible to change. I sincerely hope that no other families have their holidays ruined by staying at this villa. Earplugs will not help you.
Stayed in Villa Pippa for 5 nights it was an amazing villa, private pool, large open entertaining area that opens onto deck and 3 great bedrooms all with own ensuit! Also the housekeeper Illuh made the stay with her caring friendly nature, -'Always willing to please! Thankyou Illuh!
Excellent location. Great proximity to restaurants and shops. Villa was clean and comfortable. Had a wonderful weekend.
