Ideally situated with fantastic views. If you are visiting Salobrena and thinking of booking a hotel, DON'T! book this gem instead. Truly amazing.

A lovely little pool to cool off in, internet/WIFI access, movies, music, books etc. About a 15 minute walk to the town of Orgiva, which has small, but good supermarkets. I would recommend this place to anyone. There is also a health center and a couple of pharmacies in town if required. Just a very enjoyable stay all around and we'd definitely stay again. Tanya's directions to find the place were great.

I spent about 40 hours trying to find somewhere with the wow factor and pool heating for October. Carlos has been so helpful throughout the whole process. Always emailed me back quickly, nothing was a problem. Upon entering the villa we were all just in awe of the place! Carlos showed us around, the rooms all with sea views. Everything top spec. The pool was heated to perfection, the beds are so comfy. Waking up with that view every morning was just breathtaking. The outdoor area was beautiful in the evening looking over the sparkling lights of Salobrena and its castle. I cannot recommend this company enough. There are some sharks on this website. With Carlos you can rest assured you are getting what you pay for. Early on in the holiday we let him know the WiFi wasn't working, it was fixed immediately and completely re wired it. Thank you so much for an amazing and relaxing break! I miss those views so so much.
