My husband and I thought it was beautiful it was like home from home. Location was excellent as it was about 10 - 15 mins walk to supermarkets,bars and beautiful restaurants. The property provided everything inside and outside and very clean. If you wanted to travel by car or taxi you could visit a little town called La Marina where you will find an excellent Chinese and beautiful beaches. There is a place not far from the villa called The Chippy fab for homemade chips etc and the other restaurants on the square are beautiful too. We could not fault this place. We will return soon or next year. Definately recommend this villa,it does sleep 6 people but there were only 2.of us went. 5*
