The villa had everything you could wish for with lots of utensils, comfortable beds and air conditioning in the bedrooms that were very useful! The water pressure was a little intermittent but didn't spoil our holiday at all. The kitchen and laundry room are very well equipped with everything clean and tidy. The lounge is large and enabled the three of us to relax when not by the pool. The pool and jacuzzi were excellent and very clean, as was the poolside and the nice shady terrace. The poolside shower was useful and helped keep us clean and cool. Improving the quality of the sun loungers and outdoors seats would be nice, but again it didn't spoil our holiday. Almunecar is a lovely town with many Spanish holidaymakers, which meant a more authentic experience. The restaurants are all good and the tapas with drinks generally of a very high standard. The old town is lovely and the cross on the hill along with the castle are very interesting little walks. The water park is a lot of fun and we managed to go twice during our fortnight. Top tips 1. Use the taxi service in the evening. It's about €6 each way, but means you can enjoy a drink or two without having to drive. 2. The best supermarket is Mercadona, but the underground parking is a lottery and very tight in an unfamiliarity car! The Lidl has better parking but less authentic local produce. Parking off street is available and if you go out of peak hours you can generally find a place. 3. Good day trips include Granada for the Alhambra, Malaga for its art galleries, Nerja for its beaches and if you really fancy it you can do a day trip to Morocco from Tarifa which is about 150 minutes driving with a one hour crossing. We managed to do it and had an amazing time in Tangiers. In summary We had a great time and the villa was superb. Marco and Christian were extremely helpful and we would happily recommend this villa.
