The villa is at a great location, just a couple of streets back from the main strip in Flic en Flac. You're walking distance from shops, cafes and restaurants. It really is a good spot. We had a private pool and courtyard, which we made great use of. To describe the little plunge pool beside the main pool as a jacuzzi is a bit of a stretch though as the controls don't work and so the jets are not strong.
The apartments themselves are nice enough, but I expected them to be a little smarter, going from the photographs. It was all okay, but really could use a little tlc and honestly, it wouldn't take much investment or effort to bring the place up to scratch.
All the pillows were ridiculously lumpy and in bad need of replacement, the kitchen utensils glasses and plates were a hodgepodge of make do and mend reminiscent of caravan holidays, the air-con needs a bloody good service or replacement and there are just item in the place that could just do with being thrown out and replaced.
The host also provided half board. We did not want to be bothered with cooking, so this worked well for us. However, while her evening meals were unfaulteringly delicious, the breakfast were peasant-like simple affairs and for the price per person v the cost of produce over-all, I would describe the whole thing as a nice little money spinner. Either provide menu options commensurate to the price, or bring the price down.
Do not get the in-house massage! Comically bad and like most of the things I could say about this villa, over-priced.
On the whole, we enjoyed Flic en Flac and the villa was in a good spot with its own pool, so it did the job. We have now moved on to the east of the island and are staying at a splendid villa that is half the price, has consistently good wi-fi, good air con and a cook that charges for her services and we pick up the tab for the groceries she uses, giving us more say with what we have and quality control. So far, so good. Will let you know in a week :)
