The villa's themselves were spotlesly clean with the maids coming every other day and sometimes each day. The villa was well equipped with everything you would need for a self catering holiday including a washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher microwave etc etc. The only moan we had was that the beds were very hard and the pillows not to our taste, but I guess thats a personal preference. We had two double rooms and one twin, with plenty wardrobe and storage space. The rooms are very large and airy with sliding doors from the main bedroom and lounge onto the pool / patio area. The villa's are fully douible glazed and have an alarm system and a safe (key for rent from office), so again security is not an issue. Our brochure described the villa as having air conditioned bedrooms but only the lounge area had a semi portable air con unit (we will be taking this up with the holiday company).
The pool was cleaned and serviced every morning by the staff, some of the villa pools have underwater lighting and some have lions fountaining water into the pool, ours had the lions and we found this a bit noisy but the pool man was only to happy to turn them off for us. The pool has a deep end 1.4m and a shallow raised paddling area for toddlers. There was also a barbie for use in the pool area along with ample sun loungers and outdoor furniture. The staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough to help whenever asked although they do leave you alone to get on with your holiday unless approached for whatever reason.
The villa's are at the top of the hill on the outskirts of town so they are very quiet and relaxing, however whilst is an easy walk down to the town, some 750m to the old harbour and 1km to the end of the strip, the walk back up is a killer. After the first two hikes back up the hill we resorted to taxis once we had returned the hire car. The taxi drivers are quite happy to run you up the hill which costs 2E before 10pm and 3E after (not including tip).
If you are thinking of hiring a villa on the site we would highly recommend the Alondra's however we would very strongly advise that you book directly with the villa ownwers via their website: www.alondravillas.com as we found that it would have been about 40% cheaper booking this way rather than through a tour operator as you can hire a villa for six people for aropund
