      The villa was really lovely and very well equipped, was exactly as it looked in the online pictures. The bed was a bit hard but that's just being really picky. It was nice to have maid service mid week.

Peterborough Family (the eldest child is at school)
Very welcoming owners, kept clean and tidy, ideal position close enough to walk to beach,bar and shops far enough away for peace and quiet.

Leeds Couple
Fantastic property in great location!

Lots of bars and restaurants close by, but villa very quiet.
Nicely decorated and well equipped property.
Only complaint would be the poor wi-fi signal - but I guess you don't go on holiday for that!

Would definitely recommend and visit Villa Mandarin again!
