Games rooms in villas and heat

Quick question, were currently in a villa and the games room is the converted garage...I think this is standard. Obviously its hot here at the moment and with the Air con unit creating heat in the games room it is stifling in there, so not really that useable as after 15 mins you just want to escape.
I was going to contact the management company and ask for a fan but havent got round to it and we leave tomorrow but would like to suggest in the feedback. I just wondered if all villas are like this as weve only hired a villa in December before so wouldnt have been a problem.
Thanks

I've never yet stayed in a villa with air con in the garage (even if converted to games room), however that's not to say it's not normal. The air con unit is usually in the garage. Is there a fan you can plug in? Or can you just keep the villa door to the games room open or are you not meant to do that?

This is why we no longer have a games room as one of our must haves in villas.

Ov er the years we have come to the conclusion they are not worth it in the summer months, even with a fan in there its far too warm

We considered putting in 'proper' air con in our villa but were advised we would need building regs and to make it a "liveable" room with a window and exit door rather than a converted garage which would put the cost at thousands (the air con itself wouldn't be too bad) and so we've never done it.

We do have 2 ceiling fans and a large pedestal stand in the garage and have insulated the loft above which helps to a certain degree but some people are more heat tolerant than others, so it would be a shame not to offer a games room in the garage space.

Thanks all, thats good to know. If we came again in the Summer I wouldnt make a games room a requirement but then having experienced Summer weather I wouldnt visit again this time of year if I had a choice!
