“Fantastic villa close to lovely town of Almunecar”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

This villa is of an exceptionally high standard with a high design spec both on the interior and the pool area. The pool area is bigger than what you can see in the photographs with an amazing view of the Mediterranean and the nearby towns and villages. The kitchen is fully equipped with a washing machine, dishwasher, cooker, microwave, coffee machine and gas hob with ample seating for 10 people. The area is open plan with a living room attached with a very comfortable leather couch and state of the art smart TV to play movies.

The master bedroom is just off the kitchen area and has its own bathroom with rain shower. There is a large balcony off the kitchen area which is nice area to have an evening drink.

Downstairs there are two bathrooms and three bedrooms. Two bedrooms are doubles and one bedroom is a children's bedroom with bunk beds for four children. There is also a sitting area downstairs to watch TV.

This area opens out onto a patio area which has a large dining table and a couch as well as a sink area with fridge and bathroom including shower which can be used after a day at the pool. This area is perfect for having dinner at night time.

The pool area itself is spectacular with an infinity pool and jacuzzi. The area also includes sun loungers, parasols, a couch, a large sun bed and a barbeque area.

The villa is located on a large hill overlooking the town of Almunecar and it takes about 20 mins to walk down to the centre of the town. The walk back up would not be recommended as it is very steep but a taxi for four people costs just 8 euros.

Almunecar is a wonderful Spanish holiday resort with a very local feel. There are no bars offering all day English Breakfasts or sports bars blaring out the football results. There were very few English speaking tourists so it was a breath of fresh air and you really felt that you were in an authentic Spanish Holiday resort. The town has some lovely restaurants offering a wealth of local cuisine in particular the Seafood. Restaurants to mention are La Tralla, Los Geranios and Lute Y Jesus(near the aquarium). While we were there we also visited the waterpark and the aquarium. The waterpark is definitely worth a visit and a family ticket for two adults and two children is €57 - children under four years of age go free. The aquarium is a bit expensive for the amount of time you are in there but if you are with a toddler they will be amazed at the fish. Be aware that Almunecar sticks to Spanish customs unlike other tourist resorts so siesta is strictly adhered too! Attractions like the aquarium and castle close for Siesta and do not open again until 4pm/5pm so go early in the morning or else go in the evening! The waterpark is open from 11am until 7pm and does not close for Siesta. The town is very quiet during Siesta with only the supermarkets and bars open. Restaurants are closed during this period so do not expect to eat in a restaurant from 5pm until 7.30pm. After Siesta the town comes alive again and is buzzing with atmosphere until well past midnight every night.

We also visited the Al Hambra in Granada from Almunecar. We bought the tickets from ticketmaster.es(€15 each) and it is advisable to book in advance. We bought the bus tickets from the Spanish national bus company Alsa.es(€16 return). The bus takes about two hours to get to Granada and a taxi from the bus station in Granada to the Al Hambra is around 10 euros. It is definitely worth a day trip and getting the bus is an easy option if you don't have access to a hire car. The bus trip takes you through the Sierra Nevada mountains and you really get to see a bit of the Spanish countryside en-route.

I would also like to say a very big thank you to Leli! She is the point of contact when booking the villa. She is very friendly and helpful and would always answer any questions we had before and during the holiday within a few hours. We had two infants in our group and she arranged to have two cots put in the villa. She also provided advice on the local supermarkets(Mercadona is the nearest and provides the best range of produce) and taxis. She also enquired on how our stay was during the holiday and was flexible on the checkout time when we asked could we extend it by an hour.

I would highly recommend this villa and Leli and wouldn't hesitate to book it again in the future!
