Villa Gecko was a delightful house which was very much to our taste especially the shaded pergola at the front and the upper terrace at the back.
The sunbeds and cushions upstairs made it a pleasure to spend time on the balcony as they were so comfy.
Wifi in the villa was very hit and miss but you only have to walk towards the centre.
Everything in the villa was clean and in good condition. Great to have a washing machine and beach towels provided thank you.
To be honest we did miss a microwave and a pair of oven gloves would have been useful. Also you had to keep your finger on the toaster until it was ready. Theses are just minor things and do not detract from the overall enjoyment of the villa.
If you like to be away from the masses of holidaymakers and like to be off the beaten track, you will not be disappointed.
If you wish to go to the Crater Park for slides and wave pools it was 18€ per day.
Whilst we were there there was nobody in any of the surrounding villas and we also had the shared pool all to ourselves which was brilliant although a little cold.
Views from the upper terrace were amazing especially the sunsets.
Call at the supermarket in Lajares before turning into the road to Majanicho.
It takes 7 minutes on this road, watch out as there are five speed bumps which aren't clearly marked but the road is actually ok.You think you are on the road to nowhere and have landed on the moon but eventually you will see the sea ahead of you.....and then you will know...you have reached paradise.
