no hot water no matter what I triedPosted Mar 21, 2016
Lady that welcomed me was friendly enough but a very disapointing B&B which feels more like a hostel. This would be fine if it was advertised as such. Bed was terrible and room very basic, no hot water which was mentioned in the leaflet in the room but all the things it suggested I tried to remedy it didn't work. After 45 mins of trying to get warm water I gave up. I totally understand that this is a budget B&B but it should but listed as a hostel like accommodation rather than a B&B. No mention of breakfast when checked in either. The room was at least very clean and I have no complaints on that front.

Terrible hotel, so disappointedPosted Mar 10, 2016
Location: Only slept in this dump, but had so many wonderful places to go to.
Don't be fooled by the pictures placed on Expedia, the place is tired and needs a proper clean up. We had just arrived from the UK and we were early, the room was ready, however we still had to pay £15 for early checkin, then we had the pleasure of carrying our heavy cases up 4 flights of stairs to the worst room in the world, Ostrich Room.... shared toilets, smelly, small, could hear the neighbors burping.... Lets just say this was the worst place I have ever stayed in, tried to find an alternative hotel but it was impossible due to it being the valentine weekend. to top it all off the neighbors are building and the builders are happy singing bunch, can't be helped but if you want some quiet time it was impossible

NOT A NICE PLACE TO STAY!!Posted Dec 2, 2014 on Hotels
I booked through Hotels. com. Villa Simona wasn`t my first choice but area was pretty booked out. I requested a single Room for 4 nights and Hotels. com. booked me into the "Merkat" room. Very dark and small with the Kitchen Sink right next to the bed. No ceiling fan or any other fan, no cloth hanging facilities, the Manageress brought me some hangers for my trousers which I had to hang on the TV wall mounting bracket. TV very small and high up with Bunny ears very bad reception. The Bathroom, had a toilet and shower but no Washbasin, had to brush my teeth over the Kitchen Sink. The Lounge and corridors are very dark and old fashion, the style it was built some 20/30 years ago. The Manageress didn`t to much about my complains as she has to speak to the owner, that was Friday about 14.30 and I haven`t seen anybody until next morning 07.30 (I thought a Manager /Owner must live on the premises as per Grading Board)Finally the Owner has seen me at 09.30, very on the defence with no apology or suggestions to the problem. Could be used for a Horror movie. Doesn`t deserve 3 STARS. Maybe 1 and that is a lot for that B&B/LODGE/S/C.

I do not recommendPosted Nov 17, 2014 on Hotels
They changed the price for my after giving my room away yet i had sent mais an called to confim my booking I arrivd after 2100 (as I had told them) and they offered me another room whih was three timnes more than my original booking. I was kicked out unceremoniously at about 2200 after thy refused for to spen the night as they demanded payment upfront for three nights at the new rate. I had offered to atlast spend the one night an pay for that in full. To be honest i felt it was extotion. I ended up sleeping elsewhere.

The hotel says it did not have Oyster room type so put us in a room that had shared facilities, no air con or ceiling fan (as mentioned in the description) and was like a cell. With a view of the hotels washing! I complained and was moved to another room which was still very grotty and again no fan. The whole place was very run down and a good 5-10 min drive from the beach front. A long walk up a very steep climb. We left at 0450 in the morning as we couldn't stand it any more so I cannot comment on the breakfast.
