Owner's reply:
A problem with the pool heating was reported to us on the Sunday 15th September. The engineer was notified and Monday morning (16th of September) the heating was back on and has been working perfectly ever since. We do not charge anything extra for the pool heating; the problem was fixed promptly, once we were notified. We feel it was unfair to claim compensation or “review accordingly” The pool is heated to a temperature of 26-28` the same as most public swimming pools, the unit will only come on when the temperature drops below 26`c. Thank you for nice comments about the extremely peaceful villa, super location and stunning views across the bay. Sorry you were not happy with your stay, but as a gesture of goodwill, we would be happy to offer you a generous discount on any future booking.
