The villa is in a quiet location within easy walking distance to Arenal d’en Castell beach and resort. The panoramic views from the upper deck “ chill out zone “ are spectacular- you can see for miles - a great spot to sit in the evenings and chill. The villa was spotlessly clean with a modern well equipped kitchen with all modern quality appliances. The pool is quite small, but perfect to cool down in and relax on a hot day. Paquita was very helpful and did everything possible to make our stay as pleasant as possible ( especially as Minorca was hit by a tornado at the end of our holiday which wiped out the power supply and water for most of the island - but this was October and very late in the season, and certainly not something that normally happens - but it was reassuring for us to be kept up to date with info by Paquita on the situation )
Overall, a fantastic holiday villa that we definitely recommend. We would definitely like to stay there again ( but no storms next time please :-) . . . . )
Thank you Paquita for a pleasant holiday.
We came to Arenal in June / July and loved it so much that we wanted to return. This time we were looking for something a bit different and real get away from it all break.
We found the villa on the internet it appealed to us in that it was in the right location had fabulous views and still accessible to amenities but not overlooked.
The villa was fabulous and was everything that we wanted. It is in a stunning location, with views out to see and the rocky coastline and it is not overlooked on any side.
The rooms with large and airy, the villa was spotlessly clean and the lounge was in a fantastic position where you could look out to see if you just wanted some time in doors.
The pool, patio and surrounding area were excellent. the pool was very accessible with steps down to the pool which helped my wife who struggles to access this type of pool and was an infinity pool so looking straight out to see. The pool was a good size, safe and we spent a lot of our holiday in there. The patio was safe and well kept which is important particularly if you have children and spacious also we had plenty of room to spread ourselves out and " follow the sun ".
The garden area around was also pleasant and gave more space between the villa and the path that runs alongside the villa but still maintains its privacy.
The housekeeper was excellent made a thorough job of all cleaning and always on hand to pas on useful advice and help if we needed it.
There is a restaurant and supermarket within walking distance and were certainly sufficient to service our basic needs. Arenal itself is within easy walking distance via a couple of different routes and the beaches are therefore easily accessible on foot.
All we can say is that my wife said to me , and we have been on many holidays in many different locations, that this was the best holiday she had ever been on. This was infact true praise from someone who knows what she wants and will certainly criticise constructively where appropriate.
We can not recommend this villa, the location, the service offered by Mr Olives and the housekeeper highly enough and if we could we offer more than 5 stars. We enjoyed it so much we are returning in May.
We hope that others find the villa and experience as rewarding, enjoyable and relaxing as we did.
