The villa was extremely comfortable, particularly the huge bed which gave us the best sleep we have had for ages. The villa is well situated alongside the golf course with a neat, small garden and first floor balcony with comfortable chairs to enjoy a bit of sunshine. The property has all mod cons and well appointed kitchen. We would heartily recommend this lovely property to both golfers and those seeking a comfortable base to explore the area.

Hal was extremely helpful and friendly from our initial enquiry onwards, and we had a long phone call before booking to answer all our questions. The villa is spacious, quiet and modern, with a large roof terrace, the pool gets the sun in the afternoon and evening which is ideal (maybe also morning in summer). It was cold in April but would be fine in the summer. The villa was really well equipped with everything we needed (even beach towels) so you can travel light and save money. There is also a dishwasher, washing machine, BBQ etc It is a great resort, almost like a small town with mostly villas in quiet, tree-lined avenues. The golf course is woven among all the villas. The hotel on site is great, it has yoga and other classes available for a small cost (3€) and there is entertainment in the evening. The shop on site is very well stocked and reasonably priced, although there is a huge Carrefour supermarket 10 mins drive away. There are plenty of places to eat on site or you can drive to the Square at Los Alcazares (10 mins) for more choice. We had a great time and will definitely return!!
