Good villa, spoilt by facilities not working
The villa itself is ok, if getting a little tatty in places (damaged plasterboard in lounge area, water damage to ceiling in bathroom, cracking to garden walls, control knob broken off cooker, insufficient crockery for 7 guests). Of all the different villas we have rented in Lanzarote, this one definitely came with the fewest everyday items (no washing-up detergent, no dishwasher tabs, no dish cloth, no oven gloves … etc). We experienced some problems, as follows.
We arrived at the villa, to find the cleaners still busy working. They did not finish until nearly an hour after the advertised entry time, while we stood waiting, and our food shopping melted and deteriorated.
Several of the facilities were not as advertised on arrival. The hot tub was not working (and the state of the water inside it suggests it had not worked for some time), the upstairs wifi was not working, as was the lounge air-conditioning, there were no instructions for the TV (with its 4 external boxes and 7 remote controls), the safe was locked and therefore unusable, and the toilet in the downstairs bathroom (the only one on that floor for the 2 bedrooms there) was broken and therefore not flushing properly, a real problem for our 85-year old.
Most of these problems were fixed on the Monday, 2 days after our arrival. Instructions for the TV were emailed to us and the air-conditioning was fixed (flat batteries in the remote control). We were talked through how to reset the wifi hub. The toilet was mended after 6 days, the day before we left. The hot-tub, one of the features that had influenced our choice of rental, remained unmended, and the safe was never unlocked for us.
There were clearly issues with the local agency company, who had failed to spot these deficiencies when servicing the villa, and who were slow to respond to our phone calls for assistance. Unbelievably, when the toilet flush system deteriorated even further, spraying high-pressure water over the bathroom and flooding the floor, they did nothing about it, despite 2 phone calls for assistance.
Hopefully, by now the safe has been unlocked, and hopefully the hot-tub is now functioning because, until it does, the villa does not meet the advertised specification.
Excellent property in good location.
Contact was excellent and all queries addressed very quickly. The property is lovely but does need a bit of attention as mentioned in previous reviews. The house and pool were very clean with a lovely view to the sea and all appliances worked to a good standard. I would definitely stay here again.
A lovely holiday, one issue still waiting to be resolved.
We enjoyed a lovely family holiday at 40 Vista lobos. The villa is perfect due to its configuration because it affords you enough space so that you don’t feel on top of each other.
The living space is superb and the bedrooms were all comfortable and well appointed.
The swimming pool was ideal and the perfect temperature, ideal for kids and adults alike. We had a small issue with the pool water dropping, however the management company showed how we could top the water up which was ideal.
We did and continue to have an issue with the fridge. The existing fridge although tired appeared to be working fine, however somebody decided to change the fridge halfway through the holiday (could this not have been done on change over day or when empty). The new fridge was left unplugged and the contents of the fridge left to spoil on the side without any explanation (not great in the heat). Following numerous calls and visits from management agent and owner we were advised that we would be compensated for the wasted food. The owners have advised that they are in discussions with the management agent and will compensate when resolved (we await this resolution).
The good news is the fridge is replaced so if you book this villa you wont have the same issue.
Would I book this type of villa again, yes. Would I book with the same owner, we'll see.
Thank you for your feed back .
We apologise for the fridge been delivered early not ideal at all.The fridge was to be delivered in the day you checked out .As discussed any food loss you had you will be compensated for ..
I hope you still enjoyed your stay and the fridge situation did not ruin your holiday..😎😎
Fantastic Villa and service. Fairly priced and excellent amenities.
Hand on Heart we loved this villa and would reccomend it to anyone. Booked last minute as we originally booked a villa in Puerto del carmen but the owners cancelled a week before we travelled. We ended up paying over 500 euros less for this villa and it was fantastic. There were 5 Adults aged 26-32. The villa was spacious the rooms were lovely. Cleaners left it perfect for us. We had a minor hiccup when we arrived couldnt find the welcome pack, the alarms went off and we didnt no how to turn it off but it was quickly resolved by the company. The wifi wasnt working but turns out a lead had been unplugged also sorted within the first day. Their are little things you could be picky about if you really wanted to be a difficult customer but we simply loved it. Very spacious with a huge downstairs and slate pool table. Tv with Netflix so film nights were great. Pool has a cover and is heated lovely temperature. Top tip dont leave the cover off at night the only night we forgot and it was cold the next day. Hot tub was lovely we set it to around 35 and kept it running it worked a treat. Views are amazing from the veranda you can see right over to fueterventura ( excuse the spelling ). Outdoor brickbuilt bbq also great we used it 3 times. Kitchen some of the appliances are a little worn but everything works as it should. Showers are all piping hot and powerful. Cant ask for much more. The complex is a good 10-15 minite walk from the beach but the taxi service are quick and come to your door within minutes also very cheap litterally 5 euro to the furthest point of playa blanca. The management were great incredibly quick to respond to messages and questions. There is a grest steakhouse / texmex at rubicon marina overlooking the bay. Their is a market on the Wednesday at the rubicon mariner but its over an hour walk so get a cab only 5 euro. We shopped at dino supermarket pretty reasonable. Taxi to puerto del carman around 35 euro each way. Taxi to tequise is about 55 euro. Thoroughly reccomend any groups looking for a fantastic villa in a pretty good base location. Thankyou to the owners top villa.
Thank you so much for your review.We hope you visit us again sometime and we will take note of your comments...It was a pleasure to have you stay.
Lovely, lovely Villa 😍
We started here over the Easter break. The Villa was fantastic, bigger then we expected which was a plesent suprise! Very clean, beds were very comfortable and in a lovely quiet location. We had three adults with five children and villa was more then big enough for us. The children loved the pool the hot tub and the pool table! The Villa also had Netflix another plesent suprise! It is convently located about 15 minutes walk from Playa Blanca harbour, and a short walk to the Aquapark. It would be possible to stay here with out a car but for a food shop etc a car would be an advantage. Both Laurtina & Robert were very helpful with any questions I had. They went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We enjoyed our stay here so much, I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Fab Villa, Fab location, Fab hosts!
Many many thanks! S&B Fox
Thanks so much .You were a pleasure to have stay in the villa...See you again some time 😎😎
Spacious. Decent location.
Great size. Good beds and sheets. Cleaning team excellent. Sheets changed weekly. Villa has everything you need. Good wine glasses. Washing machine. 20min walk to Playa Flamingo or 30mins to town centre. We enjoyed the walk every day but would take a taxi back for just 4 euros. There’s a supermarket 5 min walk up the hill attached to a hotel for basics. Lots of space. WiFi good. Lots of drawer and closet space. Decor nice. Downsides? Knob missing off cooker. Signs rubbed off microwave so had to mess about to work it out. Same with hot tub. Damp smells in villa after rain. Rain pools outside and seeps into walls of villa. Pool wasn’t clean or warm when we arrived. Called to complain and it was sorted. Safe closed and unable to open. Management team unconcerned. Had to carry passports and jewellery everywhere. However, overall a great villa and would choose to use it again.
Thank you for the review.We are awaiting a new safe and Apologies for the inconvenience..I will ask about the pool with my management company. .The tempature is normally set with the season and the pool cover should have kept it warm also if it was kept on when not in use .
