The duplex apartment was very clean and well equipped for a family of 5! The swimming pool and the bar are a must: nicely laid out, spacious and quiet. At the bar, we enjoyed a wide selection of food and drinks, served by a very friendly team. There are plenty of very interesting places to visit in Tenerife: beaches, mountains, the National park, you name it... Our host Maria has been very helpful and friendly. She made our stay very enjoyable as she answered all our queries promptly. We did enjoy our stay and would recommend it to anyone in quest some quiet, relaxing break in the sunshine! Nash from Surrey

The pool is not too big but lovely and although the shallow toddler pool was not in service this was not an issue as our children are bigger and swim competently. The villa overlooks the pool which is nice for keeping your eye on the kids. The upper terrace over looks the bay at la Caleta and has lovely views down the coast . The lower terrace has an outdoor eating area and the bedrooms open out onto a private area with sun beds. The lovely restaurants and bars are literally on the doorstep but they are quiet and you will not be disturbed.. La Caketa is a wonderful place and the villa is a wonderful place to stay! We hope we will be lucky enough to return.

The villa and grounds are huge and very well maintained so there was plenty of space for 7 adults and 3 teenagers - we all loved the pool, the sun lounging areas and the artificially grassed area for ball games. The villa location was ideal with beautiful views and we've never seen a kitchen so well stocked with equipment! The only negative is that it doesn't have air conditioning and the supplied fans were working overtime to keep the bedrooms cool. However, it was over 30 degrees every day so perhaps unseasonably hot. Bottom line - we all loved Villa Royal and highly recommend it!!
