Our 3rd Year
16 Sep , 2019 over40sabroad, 2526366
We have just returned from our 3rd visit to this group of villas. This year we stayed in Violetta which is positioned lower down from Yiasmin so the views are not so good, neither is the WiFi connection. On a plus side it’s very private, no passing quad bikes, walkers or cars thinking they can get up to the dam. Other than that they are more or less identical albeit a mirror image of each other. We were disappointed that the only contact we had was with the pool man who visits 3 times a week, however he does arrive early so if your not early birds then your likely to miss him (until he wants paying for the AC). On previous years we did see the owner on numerous occasions , but not even any contact numbers were on display in Violetta, so if you had a problem you would have to ring TUI. The villa itself is tired and worn, there are lightbulbs out, one of which was in the BBQ area so we had to make sure cooking was completed before sunset, the other on the upper landing, plaster missing off the wall in the double bedroom, mis-matched faded crockery, curtain hooks missing making it impossible to open and close some of the curtains etc etc etc but this didn’t stop us from enjoying our holiday and I am only mentioning it in the hope that these reviews are read and the owners may invest a little money over the winter months to spruce them up and then they will get 5 stars from me. As a couple we find these good value for money, we cannot get a villa holiday for two people with flights, car and insurance for the same money with any other operator, even after paying under occupancy they still come out cheaper, so we have already booked for next year.
Our honeymoon retreat....

We chose this because of its secret oasis status, it was after all, our honeymoon. Our first impression was not good but that was down to TUI messing up our arrangements so I will keep the rest of the review to the villa, which was Secret Oasis Anemona. This is a two bedroom villa so it sleeps 4, as I said, it was our honeymoon so just the 2 of us. This meant a bathroom each. Which was good. However, on our first day we discovered a button which read "in case of no pressure please press the button". Effectively, during summer months they want toy to run the villa from solar power only. Which means toilets take forever to fill (I dont know why this is the case but trust me, pushing the button makes anworld of difference). Without this button being on the showers and taps produce a trickle of water. When we asked about what awithcws controlled what lights it was noted we had turned this button on and it was turned off immediately and I felt like a schoolboy being dressed down. As others have stated, there is nothing left in the villa, they will 'leave' you some provisions for €35 but frankly, there seems to be less that €20 worth and we would not use half of it (eg half a loaf of bread!). The water in the pool has been described elsewhere as cool. Arctic would be a better word. Even doing a couple of quick lengths doesn't get you acclimatised to just how cold it is. Then theres the air con.... Con being the operative word. We have paid over £2600 for 2 people for this holiday and if we want air con it's an EXTRA €7 a day per unit (one on each bedroom). Also, I'd they decide you have used too much electricity they charge you extra!! I've read elsewhere about noisy dogs and have to say I wake early so have heard them barking in the night but it hasn't disturbed me, but it could so easily disturb others. The car provided is a Kia Picanto which we immediately upgraded to Kia Stonic at s cost of an extra €666! So finally, my thoughts are, I've enjoyed the holiday but it is very expensive and I would not come again. A nice villa, lovely views but better value for money elsewhere.

Just returned.. thankfully... from a holiday from hell. If you're looking for a stress free, chilled out, villa holiday, AVOID! Ours was ruined by 24 hour, 7 days of packs of barking hunting dogs. A couple even jumped the wall and came to drink from the pool. No sleep for 7 nights. Now tired out, stressed out and very upset. Text the TUI rep, but got no reply. Also great noises from a huge excavation machine quarrying stone across the valley. Complete nightmare

We couldn’t have had a more unsettled stay. Dogs barking at the next door neighbours villa all night and all day, meaning we had zero sleep. Not so much a secret ‘oasis’. One of the showers was surrounded by mould and didn’t have a good draining system, which meant a rushed shower as the water would’ve spilled over the edges. The toilet in this bathroom also stank, no matter how much bleach or disinfectant we tried to use, so both of these things meant four people had to share one bathroom. The pool was meant to be cleaned on Thursday and wasn’t - even after calling the villa owner for this to be done. Nothing was left in the villa, not even a washing up sponge so had to buy and leave for the next person. The WiFi was awful and we barely had usage of this. The only positive we found was the view of the mountains and sea.
Fantastic First Experience At Anemona

We booked to come here fairly last minute and the photos truly do not do the villa justice. We arrived at 3am and still the place took our breath away. The pool was lit up and the temperature was still warm enough to have a quick dip. The rooms are perfectly sized and the kitchen and living room were more than adequate. If you are looking for a peaceful, serene holiday then this is the place for you. My partner and I were so relaxed the whole stay. The local amenities are all incredibly close and are great for stocking up on food for the week and there are loads of restaurants nearby. We spoke to a TUI rep via the app to have the air con switched on upon arrival so we had an amazingly cool room our whole stay. I can also confim that they do have British plugs everywhere which was really handy. It does get really warm in the living room as there is only one fan and the WiFi was sometimes temperamental. Probably the only tiny annoyances. This place will really blow your mind and if you’re looking for a place to recharge your batteries then this is it. Some people have mentioned ants, however, we had no problems with them in the villa. As long as you don’t leave food outside they won’t appear. The instructions on getting to the villa were clear and concise and there was perfect lighting on the road.
