We stay at this villa twice a year and is perfect in every way. The cleanliness of the villa is excellent and the pool is cleaned twice a week. Overall our holidays with Villa Plus are always stress free and relaxing and that's why we always return.

Brilliant Villa near shops, bars and "the strip". Praise should be given to the maid service and pool maintenance man as they work very hard and are always friendly. We return here year after year.
