“Fantastic view but the accommodation was disappointing”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

La Picolla Villa also known as the Italian guest house, is out of the way quite a walk from the main road but worth it for the view. Accommodation was some what disappointing and didn't live up to the write up about it and the facilities promised. There are about 5 apartments, the jacquci is for one, one has a bath base with a shower tap but you have to lift your leg up 5 ft to get in and out of it. No coffee maker, no microwave, no minibar, One iron to go around the 5 apartments, no ironing board, little privacy unless you manage to get the top apartment, crockery, pans and cutlery old, well used and passed around the apartments. No Air con, plenty of mosquitos. Delia the house keeper is fantastic and Bryan the maintenance guy but we suffered from building work waking us up and people painting the windows and house frame whilst we were in bed. Internet is available near the main apartment so everyone sits outside. expect to pay around 40 EC$ for a taxi ride to the main supermarket by Rodney Bay. If your flight arrives after 6pm expect to pay for the key to get in. The owner runs the apartments from outside the Country so

Management Response

Hi Jones,
I am happy for what you liked and I am sorry for what you don't. It is true what you are saying, we use our structure as a resort/guesthouse and also to rent apartments. We will take in consideration your suggestions. What you don't consider is that if you rent one apartment for sure you will not see anybody around you for your vacation but you will not get also any service that I know from my crew you was getting (free housekeeping, free laundry service, room cleaning, etc).
As you write we don't have air conditioning but we don't want it because as you know we have atlantic wind that some days of the year it is also too strong! Concerning the mosquitos if you are a tropical traveler you know that mosquitos are everywhere in the tropics! It is true that our place is 20 minutes walk by the main road , situated on the top of the hill but we choose this position obviusly to have less mosquitos that you can get on the lower places by the sea. Alessandro our main manager was present by the resort and I know that he took care of your requests.

I stayed with 4 friends and we were very happy with everything. The house was spacious, clean and well located for what we needed as it was peaceful but not too far away from everything. I would highly recommend, especially for families or groups.
