“Comfortable, restful, refreshing space with wonderful hosts!”

We stayed at Villas Del Mar longer than most guests. We were here for 2 months. The space is very comfortable and the pool is great. The beach was just a short walk away and our host Stefano and his wife were great. The bed was comfortable and our condo cat helped with the withdrawal symptoms of leaving our two cats at home. You can take a collectivo to Walmart or Mega for .50 by walking just a few blocks. The restaurant Don Chendo by Mega has some of the best Italian food ever and Don Chendo and Jimmy are great hosts. We visited there about once a week while we were there. If you are big into cooking the facitities are quite limited but I made due and I do love to cook. We had many dinners in candlelight by the pool and we also loved the sunning deck on the third floor. A delightful experience all in all. Thanks you Stefano and we miss you solieil.

“An excellent value for the cost”

My wife and I stayed at Villas Del Mar for four nights in November. The upstairs apartment that we rented is really well designed with a very efficient use of space and some nice little touches such as the pebbled floor in the shower which prevents slipping. We also enjoyed the hammock and sofa in the adjoining deck and the owner provides as much bottled water as you need (downstairs in the little bar). Stephano, the owner, was very accommodating and helpful - a pleasure to know and interact with.
The only caveats we have are that the location in a somewhat non-descript neighborhood on the north side means you are quite a ways from the downtown center of Playa (which we wanted to be) and the evangelical church right behind the suites has some noisy services several times a week (but they end early in the evening).
But you also have access to nice, relatively quiet stretches of the beach a block away.
So overall a very good place to stay.

“A Dream”

My husband and I stayed for one month for our 30 anniversary. I cannot express enough how well we liked the place.Stephano and Paola are the owners and Stephano gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived. Although he was only there for a couple days as he left for his own travels, Paola was always the for anything we needed. The place was spotless at all times and I can't express enough how beautiful it is. Anything we needed, we were accommodated almost immediately every time. The place was small enough that there is not any noise ( except for the church) yet you can still meet other people staying there if you choose. We rented a car since our stay was lengthy and never had a problem at all with parking. The place is also very secure. I never once felt uncomfortable. Paola is so sweet she felt like family and when we left, I seriously felt as if I left one of my children behind. This is 100% better than staying in a hotel.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Stephano's Villa Del Mar and found it wonderful. Stephano is a great person and host and we enjoyed our stay. I have traveled many places and stayed in much more expensive accommodations. This was in many ways, as good as the best at a fraction of the cost. The Villa has a nice Mediterranean feel to it and the sundeck and solarium were a great extra. We rented a car and had no problems with his humble neighbors. It was perfect for us! Thank you Stephano, you are the best!!! Sincerely, David Budlong
