We stayed at the Ulin Villa's for 8 nights in April. As a family of 4 with 2 children 5 & 11 I was a little bit worried that the kids would be bored in a villa as we usually opt for resort style accommodation with all the kids clubs etc. We were picked up for the airport and greeted with cold drinks and cold towels which was lovely and in about 1/2 an hour arrived at our destination. We were warmly greeted by reception staff and taken to our villa and a staff member went through all the ins and outs of the villa. The kids were so excited the villa is very big and a great size pool everything was immaculate and I don't think the website pictures actually do the place justice as I thought it looked older in the pictures then it does in the flesh.
Breakfast was cooked and served every morning in the villa and the staff very friendly and prompt each morning, there is a wide selection to choose from but sometimes the breakfasts were a bit hit and miss but all in all we quiet enjoyed it and it beat making our own. There is also an extensive dine in menu for all day dinning and this was very reasonably priced and we used it most evenings for the kids dinner and they enjoyed all the meals. The staff at the villa were extremely obliging and could not do enough for you the car service for around the local area was fantastic and I think only once in our 8 night stay there was not a car available. We used the spa service 4 times and the massages were great and the ambiance was also fantastic. Our package also included a in villa barbecue with was lovely all decorated the kids loved it the only thing is it was way to much food and we felt a little guilty letting so much food go to waste. Location wise it was fantastic just down the lane from Ultimo so close to great restaurants and nice shopping the beach if you dare is an easy 10 minute walk away but not worth it, it is absolutely filthy would not even think about swimming in it, all I can say is I am glad I didn't spend the money on accommodation on the beach I would have been highly disappointed. We had a baby sitter come each day so my husband and myself could have afternoon massages and eat dinner at a nice restaurant, she was great we did not get her through the villa's she was recommended to me through a friend she spoke great english and would even swim with the kids so this made our holiday even more so relaxing.
All in all we were extremely happy with our stay and the only negatives I can think of and the are minor is the lighting in the rooms is not great and the hair dryer is quiet pathetic if you had thick hair and wanted to dry it quick I think it would do your head in. Also it would have been nice if the coffee shop were in operation I don't think they use it.
I would not hesitate in recommending these villa's to any one we had a great time.
