The villa is located in a quiet typical Spanish location. There are plenty of good restaurants close by and a well-stocked small supermarket round the corner. There is a very good, regular local bus which means the resorts of Fanabe, Las Americas and Los Cristianos are all easily accessible without needing to use a car. Watching the sun go down at the nearby beach bar with live music is a must.
The villa is spacious with plenty of outside space and seating. There is additional large space on the roof terrace with sunbeds and further seating. The small kitchen is well stocked but the electrics are like most properties in Tenerife - you need to avoid switching on the kettle at the same time as using the electric cooker. It was great to have a full TV package including Sky Sports channels, although there was quite a lot of buffering at peak times. Parking wasn’t a problem during our stay.
A big (low cost) improvement would be to provide full size pillows rather than the small square pillow provided on each bed. The villa would benefit from refreshing the paint in some areas but overall we found it clean and comfortable.
In terms of the villa it did the job. Plus points were the bbq on the 2nd floor which we used for a couple of nights and the kitchen was big enough for 4 of us to use. The bathrooms were fine and the showers had good power. The mini library in the 1st bedroom was also a good find.
The rest of the facilities were adequate.
Minor quibbles were that the villa smelt of damp until we aired it out and we were left to sort out the wifi problems direct with the internet provider having been given the phone number… I’d expect the owner/ representative to solve the issue for me. One of the single beds in the downstairs bedrooms is not broken but the slats easily slip out of the metal runner – could do with replacing.
Location wise it is very close to the local amenities and several good restaurants. For a great steak visit Char and the tasting menu at Lagarto was excellent (as was the service)…. Both are part of a portfolio of restaurants owned by 1 English owner – the Thai restaurant in the Safari Commercial Centre in Playa de las Americas is part of the group and is also recommended.
