You have stayed in some of the finest hotels, eaten in world’s top restaurants and you always turn left on a plane. You know what luxury looks like, but are you a good guest? At Swish Marbella we treat every one of our clients how we would want to be treated. Do you return the favour?
Service and overall experience for holidaymakers is discussed often but commenting on visitor behaviour is taboo. That’s about to change. Here are our tips for being the best guest you can be, (and getting invited back next year!)
Treat the property as if it were your own
Be careful with this one as it means different things to different people. Everyone thinks they are normal. Imagine that? If your normal is dirt, debris, and you don’t use coasters, we would like you to treat the place differently and a little more carefully from your own home. Likewise, please don’t get too carried away- redecorating or painting the walls because we said to “treat it like your own” is not going to go down well with the owner.
Keep the noise down after hours
This is very important in apartments, where after 11 pm we ask you to be considerate of others and keep the hard core death metal tracks down to a quiet volume. Likewise, singing, albeit very good singing that sounds almost like Adele, is discouraged after hours.
Don’t play with fire
Barbecues are a great part of any villa holiday. But make sure you know what you’re doing before we end up calling the fire brigade. Likewise, please keep smoking to the outdoor areas and always use an ashtray. (We are not picking on anyone in particular…!)
Be prepared to ask
It’s what we are here for. Your Swish team is available 24/7- and we want you to make the most of your time here. Don’t hold back, you’ll get more out of your holiday this way.
Don’t talk to strangers!
Well, more accurately you can talk to as many strangers as you like, but please don’t invite 300 unknown guests into your villa for a wild party.
Enjoy and unwind.
Funnily enough, this is the hardest one for many guests. Used to a hectic lifestyle, it can be hard to let go. With 300 days of sunshine a year plus vitamin sea on tap you have no excuses. Do you dare try a digital detox?
