Exaclty as advertised, BUT its what they DON'T advertise that's the problem
Great location, Alaro is lovely, Great Architects dream of a villa, nice use of space, light airy, not particularly cosy, somewhat style over comfort. The villa itself is great, slightly smaller pool than the carefully staged pictures show, and it’s on a number of levels so it’s like living in a Stairmaster :-), but otherwise exactly what is advertised.However there are things that are not advertised which make this place somewhat disappointing. Had I known these myself in advance, I would have booked elsewhere.Dogs: Directly opposite the villa are two properties, each with 2 dogs. Every time another dog passes with its owner, all 4 dogs start barking in unison. In fairness this does NOT happen before 9am, but on a number of occasions the barking went on till the early hours.Parking: There IS a garage in the property, however a combination of the tightness of the turning circle due to the narrow roads of Alaro, the proximity and height of the kerbs directly opposite and the position of parked cars make using the garage almost impossible unless you want to say goodbye to your hire car excess from kerbing the wheels. We live in London so squeezing into tight spaces is part and parcel of my daily life, but this was a step too far, even for me. Parking IS available along the road if you are lucky, if not you’ll have a long walk to park it in the town, plus one VERY steep hill to negotiate on the way back. In fairness we were here for 9 days and only had to park away in the town on three occasions, but believe me once is enough.WIFI: The instructions provided with the WI-FI password information that the router is limited to 40GB after which the speed will be lower. What it doesn’t explain is that this limitation is 40GB PER MONTH !!!. We have two kids under 12, so have 3 iPads, a laptop and Kodi (for movies) and after 4 days of general use and a couple of movies, it had run out. What speed is left is reminiscent of 80’s dial up speeds.
