A PLACE in the Sun viewers have branded a guest "snobby" after they compared a luxury £300k villa to a "housing estate".
During Wednesday's episode, property expert Scarlette Douglas was on a mission to find Hazel the perfect holiday home in sunny Malaga.
Joined by her friend Paula, Hazel had a budget of £250,000 and was looking for somewhere she could bring her grown up children and three grandchildren.
Hazel wanted a minimum of three bedrooms, more than one bathroom and for it to be walking distance of a beach.
The TV presenter showed the pair a number of properties along Málaga's east coast, including a three bedroom house on the market for just over £307,000.
The property boasted an outdoor kitchen and dining area, a balcony and even a private pool.

However, the buyer was left significantly unimpressed by the detached townhouse and compared the interior to a "just another house on a housing estate".
Hazel said: "Very interesting. The outside space with the kitchen, the big table, the swimming pool — that is just to die for.
"But inside it just feels a little bit too much like any other house on a housing estate."
Viewers were stunned by her reaction and raced to Twitter to complain.

One said: "It feels like a housing estate? A detached property in Spain? Outside kitchen, balcony, swimming pool. Yep….just like a housing estate!"
Another posted: "She’s a snob! Housing estate?"
However, some viewers agreed with Hazel and thought the property was disappointing.
One wrote: "It is any other house on a housing estate though."
Another posted: "Saying that, I found that in Spain if they didn't have the weather it would be like any other council estate."
Although property four was a let down, Hazel was impressed by afive-bedroom property in Caleta de Velez.
The townhouse was on the market for just under £286,500 and featured a downstairs apartment, a hot tub and balcony views.
"It goes without saying that would be my apartment," she joked.
Hazel put an offer in under the asking price at £260,000 but the owner refused to go lower than £276,271.

Hazel was keen to secure the property and made another offer of £270,000, which was again refused as the owner would not go lower than £271,000.
Hazel finally agreed to pay the asking price and was thrilled to land her dream property.
