Just back from 12 nights at Villa Alba. Overall not too bad, apartment was a good size, plenty room and plenty storage space. However, very dated and in need of decoration and upgrade. Cleanliness was good, cleaners visited every day. Location is okay, although you need to be fit as its on a steep hill. 10 min walk to the...

Booked in late April 13 and checked in on 24th June. Man on reception was very cheerful and helped us all the way to our apartment when we arrived at 1am. We were very surprised at how large our apartment was. Big bedroom (requested double bed but think they must only have twin) lovely clean kitchen which looked brand new....

We had a first floor (top) large 2 bedroom apartment but the whole place smelled damp which in a country that has a good climate is a poor show. Tiled floors make any noise worse so the kids downstairs echoed and the road noise didn't help with a good nights sleep. The snack bar and pool area where nice and...

Apartments were spacious if a bit tired. Pool clean and no fighting for sun beds. Pool bar very nice. All staff very pleasant. Apartments were central. Apartments could do with a refurb inside but on the whole it was a comfortable stay and I would return.

First impressions poor, apartment difficult to find. Entrance had smelly drain which we cured with a basin of water thrown ionto it. Poorly equipped; slept 4 but not enough dishes, glasses etc. Had to ask for kettle and clothes horse to be provided. Bathroom grubby. Patio chair collapsed with a broken leg when it was sat on - could have...
