We have just arrived at 1am, finally, and even at this time of night it is way too hot. The villa is big, and has a study even, so I can get some work done while the rest of the family go in the pool. That was the plan, I can stay in the air conditioned villa most of the time.
Turns out they don't actually have air-con the the main living area, or the study, or indeed any part of the villa except for some pathetic small units in the bedrooms.
What a waste of money. And I am stuck here for two weeks. Maybe I can bring a desk up to one of the bedrooms or something. This is ridiculous. I have been to many hot countries, and they manage to have proper air-con in the entire villa, whether it is Rhodes, or Barbados. That is the one redeeming feature of a hot country - they have air-con. But apparently not in Cyprus.
I am dreading two weeks here now. It is seriously tempting to fly home.
So much for Villa Plus, more like Villa Minus...
Oh, and the internet is jumping to 500ms latency when idle. That is going to be unusable as well.
Update: The units in the main villa, which they say are heating only, are in fact air-con, and magically, for only €250 more, they can be turned on. We'll see later today, hopefully.
Update: And... we are starting to chill.
