I appreciate that you have provided your comments with regards to the Villa and the grounds. I am saddened that you did not bring these points to our attention as we could have supplied addtional umbrellas around the pool. There are permanent shaded areas which clients usually use if they wish to not be in direct sun. The life ring is located on the wall beside the BBQ next to the pool, this is quite visable and again could have been pointed out if asked.
We have noted the issues that you have raised and although they had not been raised throughout your stay we will ensure that all aspects are to the standard expected.
