We took a last minute holiday over Easter and as the villa had no previous reviews we were a little weary. It was however explained to us that we would be the first guests. When we arrived we were greeted by the very friendly on-site staff who showed us in to the villa and made us comfortable. It was clear from day one that we would be looked after and sure enough the staff were all particularly nice and friendly throughout our stay.
El Barranco has recent been redeveloped with a lot of money spent on it. It looks absolutely lovely but from what the staff told us they have even bigger and greater plans! Apparently there will be new restaurants (including a Michelin star one), a gym, beauty salon and a lot more too!
The villa itself was very comfortable and well furnished. It had a lovely outside area with sea and pool views - plenty of room to stretch out in the sun. SKY TV with all the normal UK channels was a real bonus and the Wi-Fi was very much appreciated by our son!
The complex has a nice bar on-site called "The Terrace bar" and an Italian restaurant with great pizzas! There are a couple of other bars over the road. "The Rocking Horse" has some good fun evening entertainment.
The marina is a 10 minute walk away and here we enjoyed some really nice evening meals. Our favourite was "La Marina".
Overall we had a very relaxing holiday and would definitely return to El Barranco. Thank you to all the staff for all their help throughout the stay. We hope to see you again sometime.
