We stayed in villicanna North. Which in my opinion is superior to the south. It's well laid out, beautifully maintained. The pool area is great. Lots of sunbeds and shade. The bar isn't too pricy (considering its a MacDonalds resort). 2 euros for wine. Bogof at happy hour. Our apartment was spacious and very clean.

this resort is over an hour away west of Malaga near the coastal port of Estepona. very peaceful as it was off peak but the risk is not everything is open for business just yet. the in resort restaurant was still not completely opened so a car is required if you if you fancy some exotic food. the little town...

early March is still off season in Spain and that's the promise of quiet and less stress. Villacana is a lovely resort just off Estepona, the quieter part of the Costa del Sol, an hour plus west of Malaga. the rooms/units are nicely upgraded to the 21st century with TV, WiFi and air conditioning. And the pools are lovely and...

We were looking to use up an exchange week in winter 2016/2017 but there wasn’t a lot of choice on the Costa del Sol that we fancied. We’d stayed in Macdonald Villacana once before some 12 or more years ago but we couldn’t really remember the place in detail, we just had this recollection we didn’t like the dark gloomy...

This is a hard place to find on your first visit. It sits on the A7 motorway where traffic is fast and trying to find your way off is not easy. The resort is well maintained and the reception Manager is helpful. We visited to get Winter Sun in February 2017 but it didn't really happen. The apartment was okay...

Lovely place tranquil well maintained locations. Grounds are well maintained and the apartments are spacious clean with high quality furnishings. The only minor complaint is the water in the shower isn't as hot as I like it

Rooms on the ground floor have a courtyard with shade, 2nd and 3rd floors have roof terrace with very little shade apart from a parasol so should you forget anything it's back downstairs, unlock your front door, retrieve forgotten item then retrace steps to roof terrace. Our room, on the middle floor, had no balcony and we found the roof...

We exchange our timeshares and were very fortunate to find a week was available at this lovely resort. The gardens are immaculate and there is peace and tranquillity to be found at the smaller pool if you don't want the hustle and bustle of the main pool. Sun beds are laid out on a daily basis and during our stay...
