Response from John:

I am not going to waste my time talking about these people, and I can only tell you that all this crap they wrote was written because they wanted an apartment for 6 months, without leaving any deposit, and I told them I cannot afford to rent without deposit (like everywhere else in the world).
The rent contract to reside is very different from a short term rent. The long term one is a normal rent contract with a price for normal residents.
They talked to me on the phone and told me everything was perfect, that they liked the place (I received no complaints about the furniture then) and that they wanted to stay for 6 months in our apartments, but they didn't have the money to pay the deposit, to which I responded kindly that I couldn't afford to do that, like mentioned before.
What I didn't know was that AFTER the phone call ended, they talked to Maximo, and accused him of not telling them about the deposit when they asked for RENT PRICE. Obviously, when asked so, Maximo told them the price of the rent. It is an understatement that with a long term rent comes a deposit. And if they have actually travelled in 49 countries, they must surely know that.
After they left the apartment, before they wrote a review on the Apartments’ Airbnb profile, I even left a review on their profile stating that they were good clients, like I always do when clients are not rude or problematic. That is because I had no idea they were going to backstab us only because they couldn’t get what they wanted. They seemed kind and friendly, at least when talking to me on the phone.
These clients rented for two nights and asked to extend their stay for the next six months, but without paying any deposit and with a cheaper rent. We again repeated our policies about long term rents. That said, they proceeded to find another, cheaper, place to stay in, and which supposedly didn't require a deposit. We kindly let them keep their belongings in the apartment after the check-out hour (5pm), while they were out looking for another place. When the security man saw that two people that weren't supposed to be in the apartment anymore came back in to take the luggage, he asked them to please wait for the man in charge or to try call someone to explain the situation, him being unaware of it at the moment.
I am the owner of Villas Princesa Apartments and we have never had any problems with our guests, and the "old man" they keep mentioning in their "review" is someone who has worked for us for none less than 9 YEARS, without any problem brought up by our guests. His name is Ramon and he is a humble, helpful and kind person, especially with guests, and the same goes for Manito (the man who works as security during the day), and mr. Maximo, the administrator, and I am quite sure that ANY client who has stayed at our apartments will be happy to say the same.
Anyone with doubts has to look no further than the rest of the reviews we have, stating the good time they had during their stay and you can contact them if you desire to have further information.
It is sad and pitiful that there are people who, just because they cannot obtain what they want at any cost, have to damage fellow men.
