Review and what guests say about Villa Juanita :
Sample of recent guest reviews.
"Disruptive Wifi as well as cable, no warm water for the shower, broken furniture. To get a remote for the AC they charge you extra!!! There is no beach, everything they recommend to do requires a car because it is 15-60min away."
"Awesome Villa. If you are looking comfortable rooms, great view and tasty meals this is the place to stay"
"The staff was nice and food was good ...wonderful little get away,very please, view is breath taking"
"The villa was advertised as a private villa, which was so obviously not. The only positive we have to say is that the villa is actually a beautiful place and staff were very helpful and pleasant. Stains on my bed-sheets. Given left over's from the day"
"No good. We did 5 nights in this dreary hotel. The agreed price was not the one we had instead they took $600 from the credit card without saying so. Ugly rooms not like the ones in the photos"
"the place has potential .....about $100,000 to fix up the building and hire a new chef, would just be a start."
"We loved the view and the location. Most staff was friendly and helpful. However, the experience was overcast because we did not get the room we booked, there was no hot water and we did not get what we paid for when we booked"

Not all rooms have AC. If you are looking at three, four or five bedroom villa accommodation there are many to choose from in the area and for $1300 a night, you could have a whole luxury villa or house with pool and staff. Also remember that the area is pretty quite, so there's not much going on especially evenings.
We note that several reviews mention the property being somewhat tired and dreary in need of some fixing up. Though most liked the splendid views offered and staff. Overall, Villa Juanita is not a private vacation villa, more of a mixed villa / apartment / hotel without a swimming pool.
