We had a lovely holiday here. I was a bit apprehensive on the location before we left and with limited reviews I was worried about whether we were making the right choice. But I can highly recommend this villa. Location is great, very quiet but 10 mins from a parade of shops and bars and 2 supermarkets. We found the restaurant quality to be really high and with 2 young children and a baby with us it was perfect for evening meals. You can walk along to the main bit of playa blanca in about 40 mins, it’s a lovely walk along the promenade and there are stops on the way. There are taxi numbers at the villa and we had no problem getting them in and out of the main town, although some taxis struggled to find us as it’s a fairly new development. The villa itself is lovely and very clean. The main bedroom is very spacious and has a terrace with views out to sea. The best bit of all is the outside space, lovely gardens and a pool that kept the children and adults happy. The pool is heated, when we arrived it was cold and we were told that it would be hot by the next day which it wasn’t. Someone came to check and realised the fuse had gone, so double check if it’s not warm when you arrive. Only point to note is that there is no shallow end to the pool but there are Roman steps in. My only niggle was the squeaky bed in the main bedroom but that was it. All in all we had a fab break in the winter sun and I would recommend highly.
The property is situated with similar detached properties outside the main tourist section of Playa Blanca. This is a good thing if you are looking for peace and quiet and a bit of privacy. The villa is very well equipped. We like a mix of dining out and self-catering and the kitchen here is of a good standard and easily allows for the preparation of family main meals. The internet is a decent speed. I needed to do quite a lot of work and was able to do so without any interruption or speed problems. On the single occasion we needed to contact the manager (for a pool clean) the engineer arrived in less than 20 minutes following the call. Only minor niggles are that the DVD player did not work (broken cable), there was no printed information in the villa and the bed in the master room had an annoying squeak. On the upside the rooms are huge, there is private parking, there is constant hot water, it was very clean and tidy and (apart from the DVD) everything was in good working order. We felt that we received good value and would definitely stay here again. There are stops for the number 30 bus into Playa Blanca nearby (it is about €2) and there are several excellent restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance. Perfect base for triathletes as cycling, a good swim and coastal running route are all right there.
Just returned from a brilliant week in this villa. Excellent facilities - well equipped with a great outside space and lots of seating. Gorgeous heated pool. Just loved it and will return. About 200m from the lighthouse and a row of small shops, cafes/ bars. Weather super. A great find. Will definitely be back.
A bit Expensive compared to other villas but worth the money. Service was good and assistance of the owner and local service company was excellent when we had a small problem with the water in the pool.
By the way the island was above our expectations so quite a nice hols in general.
