The location of the property was very good for us. No hire car was required as the transfer from the airport is simple via the C1 / C2 trains, which run every 20 Minutes. It is just 2 stops to Los Alamos and a 10 Minute stroll to the Villa.
The Villa is situated away from TORREMOLINOS towards MALAGA in a quieter location which was nice.
The shops, beach, bars and restaurants are just a short stroll and there was plenty of choice to suit all tastes. We travelled as Grand parents with Children and Grand children ( under 4 years old ) and everything was perfect for us.
The Best feature by far is the Pool as we had temperatures near 40 degrees every day and the Pool was heaven.
The Agents were very Helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

We recently spent a week in this lovely villa and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The villa is excellently placed only a 10 min trip from Malaya airport and a couple of minutes walk from the beach and train station. The house is bright and airy, clean and well-equipped, with a gorgeous terrace overlooking a shaded pool. Touches like stairgates and a games room kept the little ones busy when not in pool.
Los Alamos is a quieter spot than Torremolinos but conveniently located to all the tourist attractions. Plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops within walking distance. Highly-recommended property!
This place is fantastic!!! I was one of a party of 8 ( aged 3-66) and the villa was perfect for all of us. This place is huge!! The photos really dont do it justice. There are 4 lovely bedrooms and 4 restrooms, all very clean and tidy. Each room had a fan in the cupboard as well as extra bedding and pillows. The garage has been made into a games room which was good fun. It is very cool down there and this is used as another bedroom as there is a sofabed. The kitchen was well equipt for our needs and the utility room was a blessing, saving us all the washing at home! The lounge\diner was very comfortable, but the sky box had limited channels and the WiFi had to be paid for. Previous guests have left games and books which was great to pass time at night and the pool has a brilliant selection of inflatables and water guns in the store room next to the pool. The promenade and beach where a 2 minute walk from the villa, with tons of restaurants, bars, shops and kiosks all along the beach front. The train station (Los Alamos) is no more than a 10 minute walk away. There are several supermarkets within walking distance too. I will definitely be recommending villa catriona to friends and would come here again should we return to Spain. Thanks to Pat and the ladies from the agency who where so kind and helpful!!
I really enjoyed my recent holiday in Villa Catriona-I had read and agree with most of the other reviews, the villa is stunning, and met and exceeded our expectations: The local agency responded within a few hours to one problem with electricity which was most impressive and we had a very good relationship with the owner Pat, who responded quickly to our queries. Our children and adults in the party really enjoyed the table tennis and the play area downstairs was constantly in use in the evenings.
The swimming pool was excellent but a pity that we did not have more hours of sunshine to spend more time in the pool.
Beach and shops were just a few minutes' walk from the villa with excellent promenade for leisurely strolls.
Strongly recommend and will probably return again.
We recently stayed at Villa Catriona , Torremolinos over the new year with our grown up children and grandchildren.
Such a great location, two stops from the airport and right beside the beach, one minutes walk to the med ocean and the great promenade at Los Alamos Torremolinos, couldn’t have been better!!!
The villa had lots of space for all the adults and the grandchildren loved the pool table and table tennis, it was a bit cold for the pool so the games room kept them well amused!
Villa had all mod cons needed and anything that wasn’t there, like a tin opener which we needed, we just called the agents at SPM Rentals and it was delivered down within an hour! Great friendly service nothing was a problem, we will be back!!!!
