What a great place to stay! The resort of La Mata for those yet to experience it is a beautiful family friendly place with a spectacular beach and an eclectic range of restaurants and bars.
There are also lots of other attractions within the surrounding areas for families such as the Reina Sofia park in Guardamar, the Aquopolis Torrevieja water park and the Eliche Safari Park.
The villa itself is ideally located between several restaurants and bars and the beach in a secure gated complex which provides further peace of mind for families with young children such as ourselves.
We stayed with my parents and, due to the layout of the villa, never felt that we 'were living in each others pockets' since they had the separate en suite accommodation noted in the listing.
The villa is spacious, clean and fully laden with equipment/facilities such as a bbq, washing machine, air con, WiFi, TV (with uk channels), several furnished patio areas and of course the pool. It really felt like a home from home in no time.
We will definitely look to use again and would without hesitation recommend it to others.
A special mention for the agent and taxi firm owner Uwe for the frankly outstanding service he offers at www.airportruns-r-us.com. He greeted us at the airport, ensuring the taxi we travelled in had the required child seats for our two children. Nothing was too much trouble for him and the professionalism and level of service he provided made us all relax as soon as we got off the plane. He even arranged for a set of house keys I had inadvertently left at the villa to be returned to us! If you're looking for a high quality taxi service in Alicante and the surrounding area, make sure you consider his firm.
