“Great villa, great time with some issues”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Ok so we were a group of 18 people 11 adults and 7 kids. We arrived at the villa on Saturday and were suitably impressed. The place is big. It's two separate houses like a semi detached house but with a common garden. It's fenced off and fairly private. There's plenty of room in both parts of the house with loads of amenities and bedroom space. Being two houses means loads of toilets two kitchens etc so it was great. Pool was a little smaller than expected so got a bit crowded but the kids loved it and that's what matters. It was a good price. Didn't work out much cheaper than an all inclusive but you get the privacy which is nice. Few mins drive or half hour walk to the marina which was nice. There are some great restaurants there. Few shops and touristy type things to do. The local supermarket is a 10 min walk and the beach the same. Although you don't need a car please be aware that the villa is up on a steep hill. The supermarket is at the bottom. Walking back with bottled water and food is hard work up the hill so be prepared for it especially in the blazing heat. You will find yourself jumping in a cab for €6 to get home unless you hire a car. Beach was fine there's a little nightlife not far from the villa in some of the beach bars which was good.

So now to the down sides. Whilst we were there the plot of land next door which had apparently been unused for years all of a sudden had diggers and workmen. This appeared on the Monday. We weren't told and the owner said he knew nothing about it starting. Unfortunately this work of digging foundations kicked up dust. A lot of dust. And the noise was almost unbearable. 2 of our group had to remain indoors because they suffered asthma attacks caused by the dust. The caretaker dos come over and offer to hose the place down. The dust was everywhere. The reason for mentioning this is that if we were there in August and they only started the foundations then chances are they will be building the new house for the next year or so. So if you've booked between now and next July you should know that there's a building site next door kicking up dust and dirt and the general noise level is high. With builders and other workman it will be noisy.

The second concern I had was with the guy who lived opposite. He was flying a drone above the house everyday. A drone that had cameras on. We had small children in the garden and we have no idea why he kept flying the drone above the pool area. It was quite creepy. Add to this the level of broadcast equipment he has attached to his house and it's weird. Maybe a little paranoid but when you have kids running about in the garden and a drone possibly videoing them by a stranger who seems to be well into broadcasting and radio/video the cogs start ticking. It was uncomfortable. If you have kids be aware the guy opposite will at some point video you without permission flying a drone over your head.

Overall we all had a great time. I'd have given it 5 if it wasn't for the building site and weird neighbour.

Many Thanks for your positive comments about you recent stay at Villa Una Maria. Our sincere apologies regarding the construction work in the adjoining plot. I sure you understand it was totally outside our control.
Our understanding is the works will be complete by end of May 2016 and once the ground works are completed in the next month or so the noise and dust levels will reduce significantly. The construction is only a single dwelling build with pool.
We thank you for highlighting the use of a drone and we will be bringing this information to the relevant authorities and also the president of our community. The broadcasting equipment you refer to is for 3G broadband booster for the area and has been on that house for many years. Once again many thanks and thank you for your custom.

“Nice comfortable Villa with all amenities.”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Had a wonderful time but would have benefitted from some local information such as map, local travel, restaurants and local take away recommendations and phone numbers for taxis and local establishments to make bookings as we had a large number to cater for. We would definitely book again hopefully in the near future. Our only gripe would be that Air Conditioning was only available in master bedrooms and living rooms ,especially as it was exceptionally hot during our stay.

“great villa, great location”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have stayed at these villas 3 times now and love it. Great location, shops, restaurants, bus stops and golf courses nearby. The local taxi company is excellent if you need to use them.

The villas are clean, spacious and have everything you need for a great holiday. The pool area is pretty with shade if needed. We travelled as extended family ages 1 to 60.

Lee the careraker is very friendly and helpful.

Will definitely be back.

“Amazing holiday in beautifull villas”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

myself and my family stayed here for 10 days in June, 15 of us in total, we had such a great time, the villas were beautiful, very spacious and very clean, both houses are full equipped with everything you need from washing machine, dishwasher, TV's etc. the basement in both houses are ideal if you want to stay in the cool and watch tv and also has 2 bedrooms on the basement level, we stayed in the master room upstairs, en-suite with air con, the mountain view and blue sky view from our room in the mornings was just lovely, we didn't use the bbq's but all equipment is there and ready to go, the pool area is so relaxing, lying under the palm tree or the parasol, we had 5 young children with us and the pool area was ideal for them, easy to keep an eye on them and very secure, electric gates which is only accessible through the gate fob and double locks on all the doors made us feel very secure when we were going out or sitting out on the terrace at night. I would highly recommend both houses for your holiday.

“We had a great time with our friends”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We came to Villa Una Maria in May. We were 13 friends from Finland and had a great time together there. We rented a car and made many wonderful trips around the area. Two houses were good and we had plenty of room. You never needed to wait until you got your turn to go to the bathroom or to the toilet. Own swimming pool was nice and the weather prefered us. We lied outside and the sun was shining all the time. Our houskeeper, Lee, was kind and told us everyting we needed to know. We are sure we would go again to Villa Una Maria, if we are going to need such a big residence in the future.
