The owner made contact immediately and was very helpful in confirming booking details and suggesting alternate travel arrangements (airports / care hire). The Villa was a great base from which to travel / explore the surrounding region and offfered all we could reasonably expect. There is a local contact who is available for any issues which arise during your stay, We enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in booking again.

We primarily came to this resort and location for the golf. In terms of the villa, it is set in a superb location on the resort being no more than a 10 minute walk from the hotel, amenities (shop and decent resturants) and the golf. The villa itself has everything you need in a villa aborad. Decent size of all rooms. The 3 bathrooms is a bonus! Although we had fantastic weather (near to 15°C at the beginning of june- just the wind that was chilly) we weren't able to use the pool, and it wasn't warm enough to sit outside- however in the summer these would be great as well as the veranda! The great TV was a bonus for us too with English channels. Overall we found no faults with the villa itself. Ticks all the boxes really. We were very impressed, and found it very helpful, being able to contact the couple that look after the villa over in Spain. Gary was very helpful and set up the golf tee times and clubs along with the golf centre for us which was fantastic. And anything we needed we knew we could contact him which always put our mind at ease. We were able to use the facilities in the hotel which was great for the women- when the men played golf we were able to use the spa at the hotel which was fab. The resturants Around were great. There's a couple linked to the hotel, and then if you take a walk about 15 minutes outside the gates of the resort there are other resturants and one is a pub style which is nice and popular. Overall we had such a nice break away, everything went well, no problems. Easy to book, easy owners to contact if we needed. Great and accurate information given to us by the owners prior to leaving. We definitly want to be visiting this villa again throughout the year and feel very thankful for such a great break away.

As we are keen golfers the house was excellent choice just by the seventh hole in Mar Menor. We would highly recommend this anyone who wishes to spend relaxed time in this area. Weather in this region is almost completely dry even if Malaga suffers from floods.
