A very enjoyable holiday with perfect accommodation. As it's name suggests it poolside with a lovely water park section for children. Beachfront only a few minutes away. And the shops and restaurants also only a few minutes walk.
The villa is very well equipped and of very high standard. Basically we couldn't have asked for more. The only downside is the pool is salt water and took a bit of getting used but wouldn't stop us from returning.
I have just booked my third stay at this villa after very enjoyable holidays in October/November 2015 and April/May 2016. The villa is very spacious and comfortable, with plenty of seating in the lounge and three separate outside areas, allowing six guests to socialise or have their own space as required. All three en suite bedrooms have proper beds and are very quiet at night. The owners use the villa themselves so it is more like a home than a holiday rental, with some nice extras such as a shopping trolley to bring your wine back! The TV has many UK channels including Sky Sports 1 and 2 and there is free wi-fi.
The location is fabulous, with benefits including an enormous swimming pool just outside the garden gate, easy access to the beach and seafront promenade, and close proximity to shops and restaurants ranging from high end to tourist. The nearby Parque Santiago supermarket provides basic groceries including many popular UK brands, and a large Mercadona supermarket about 1km away (up the hill past Zara) has greater choice, including fresh fish, for those doing full-on self-catering.
Don’t be put off by the negative review about ants and other issues, most of which is untrue. This is Tenerife and tiny ants can be found anywhere, even in 5-star hotels, but they are not a problem if food is wrapped, spills wiped and waste removed regularly. The villa is in good repair and everything works, linen is changed weekly, and cleaning can be arranged. The owner provides you with a local contact in case anything goes wrong but I did not need it on my two visits.
The only downside is that the stairs are quite steep and there are lots of them to the top-floor, but my 92-year old mother managed them so the able bodied should be OK.
We had a lovely break over Christmas again in the villa it has everything you need for a family holiday in the perfect location
I stayed at this property in March 2015 with my family, on arrival we found the kitchen and utility room invested with small ants, rendering use of the kitchen impossible for the storage and preparation of any food. The property also had broken door handles and windows. No maid or cleaning service, no bed or towel change. Gas supply ( outside tap ) was turned of whilst we were there, therefore no hot water until we worked out the problem. This is by no means a luxury villa as described. Faults were reported to the owner on our return who was dismissive of our complaints. Very disappointed with the Villa and owner Jane Edwards.

Lovely large, well equipped, clean villa in an excellent location. Had everything you could require whilst staying there. Beds were comfortable and clean towels were provided
for all bathrooms, beach towels were also provided.
There was no noise on an evening despite being within a large complex.
Only negative was the salt water pool and no AC in the rooms.
