I am sorry to hear you had a bad experience staying at Palm Villa. However, we did speak to other members of your party who seemed to have a different opinion. It seems you really would have preferred a villa on the beach front which would have cost at least three times as much as Palm Villa. Palm Villa is very well equipped and we do have a coffee machine available for our customer's use, although not a cafetiere. Our pool cleaner comes regularly once a week, and came out to check if there was a problem in between visits whilst you were there and found nothing untoward.
