The owners have spent a fortune on the villa and the quality shines through. This is a 5 star Villa! I have high standards and this over exceeded . Everything you need is catered for. Surround sound by the pool! Table tennis. Everything is so clean and brand new. The service was brilliant. We have booked for next year it was so good.

We could have done with a few of the basics " toilet rolls and washing up liquid "would have been a start but apart from that it was great. loads of towels ,washing machine, dishwasher and laying chickens. Rafa doesn't speak much English and my Spanish is non existent but we managed to get by using Google. He recomended a few places to eat and answered any questions had.
