Mark Minett, 14-Sep-2013

Our family of 4 generations stayed in this villa 4 years ago and returned, as it ticks all the boxes. The villa is clean and the pool and outside area are ideal to relax in. The location is great as it is close to the strip with all the restaurants and shops, but far enough away so as not to be affected by any noise.

Not a suggestion - just that we are not sure of the name of the rep we saw - husband thinks it might have been Wendy, but she was very helpful on the 2 occasions we saw her.
