  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Felt as if we got the worst villa of them all. Number 9 is a bottom villa and you can hear everything that is going on in the villa above, day and night. The worst thing was the towels, they were worn and disscoloured (grey). Breakfast was included in the rate but it was the worst meal of our 18 day trip. No value for money here.
