“Lovely spacious villa for 2 families with great facilities”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed at this Villa in Aug 2015 for 3 weeks, we shared our holiday with 2 other families who swapped halfway. The villa was big enough for house us all, (12 in total, 4 adults and 7 children) ranging from 14 months to 15 years.
Mark (The Owner) was brilliant and on hand at anytime to help, advise, fix a toilet and top up the air-con and recommend places to eat! He popped in occasionally during our stay but was never intrusive and was always very respectful of our privacy. The welcome pack in the fridge was very welcome, especially as we arrived late on Saturday and after a delayed flight, didn't need the agg of going shopping for essentials straight away. He showed us on the Sunday which supermarket was open for us to do a shop (totally unexpected and very kind of him).
The villa itself was very clean with a kitchen packed full of useful items. The lounge and dining room were large enough for all 12 of us to sit around, with english Sky TV. Wifi was good all around the villa (very important these days!) Beds were comfortable and rooms spacious, with enough bathrooms to service everyone well.
The underbuild part didn't have air conditioning but had fans, although in the August heat, it was very hot and the fans didn't keep those sleeping there cool (feedback given to Mark already). We had to pay extra for air conditioning several times during our 3 week stay which we have never experienced before (although it did state on the website when we booked).
The outside facilities were great, pool size was good, with the benefit of having a toddler pool which was well used, the tiles on the posts separating the depths in the pool are sharp though and 3 of our children hurt themselves on these posts.
The pool table was well used by us all, as well as the darts board, along with the shaded seating area beside the bar. The outside drinks fridge was too small for our liking and could've done with a freezer outside to store the ice and ice creams etc! We used the charcoal BBQ a few times, but we do prefer a gas BBQ, especially in the August heat!
The outside table under cover was lovely although not big enough to fit 12 round, but we managed. There were enough sunbeds for those who wanted to lie down, and they were comfortable. We lost the sun on the pool about 5pm each day, but for those wanting the evening sun, you could move to outside the underbuild area.
Location was good, it was on an urbanisation so you'd expect to be right beside others, the road was quiet and didn't see much of the neighbours. It was a 10 minutes walk to the nearest restaurants/shops but La Fuente was a better area to eat and drink which was 25-30 mins walk, fab restaurants here and highly recommend the Stone Grill.
Great location to play golf, the guys in our party played 10 times in 21 days on 4 different courses. The nearest beach was 10 min drive away, as was the "La Zenia" shopping centre (a hit with teenage girls). There are 2 waterparks close by, one offers a free shuttle bus from the shops 10 mins walk away, well worth a day out and you can then return for a third of the price!
Overall, we could not fault the villa or owner and would recommend to others. Thanks Mark!

“El Galan villa”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We had a great holiday in this villa. There were 12 of us ranging in age from 5 months old to 63. The house suited us perfectly. We could relax by the pool, eat together inside or outside or take the short walk down to the local restaurants. Mark was very helpful and always responded to any questions or requests we had quickly and kindly. I would highly recommend the villa and the area for an enjoyable family holiday.

“WOW fantastic villa”
Reviewed 28 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have 3 generations staying at the villa that for our first holiday as a family.
We were greeted by the owner Mark who showed us round the villa and can only describe as WOW as we walked round. He explained all about the villa and what was available locally. There was a great welcome pack there for us and he even took us to the supermarket the next day.
The outside pool area was just as described there is a pool table and a large bar area by the Pool.
The villa was very clean on our arrival there were even Beach towels supplied for our use. We mainly stayed around the pool/villa and in the evening we went 10 mins walk down the road to the local bars and restaurants. We would recommend a lovely restaurant called “Intrim” and a bar called “Tradewinds” offering entertainment in the evening.
We will be certainly recommending this property to our friends and once again thank you to Mark and Ellie who made our stay in their villa so welcoming.
