Whilst there are a few comments within the review which are appropriate, we find certain remarks to be untrue and grossly exaggerated.
The kitchen is fully equipped together with a full complement of crockery and cutlery, all of which is to European standard.
All the rooms in the Villa including the kitchen have an electronic ultrasonic device which deals with any unwelcome bugs within the Villa. These devices are continuously switched on, thereby providing a "bug free" environment for guests to enjoy.
Mauritius is, after all, a tropical island!
Terms and Conditions categorically state that entry to the Villa must be made available either by prior arrangements with the guests or immediately in the event of an emergency. Unfortunately in this instance, for the whole 7 weeks period our representative/maintenance personnel were denied access to carry out any remedial works including the water pressure and rectifying any cleaning issues.
The pool is regularly maintained, and the Ph testing is carried out twice weekly. Any maintenance to the swimming pool and Ph sampling/testing are carried out early morning or late evenings when the facility is unlikely to be in use.
Also the guests in this instance, left the air conditioning units switched on continuously for their whole 7 week duration, showing little respect for the running costs.
These guests still scored their stay at Villa Catherine 3 out of 5, despite their comments.
