                                                                                                      4 of 5

Pat and Ron were very nice and were kind enough to welcome us with some essentials in the fridge on arrival. Most rooms are air conditioned which was a big plus for me as it was very hot. Eric who lives next door was very friendly and very eager to offer any advice on the area if needed. There is a beautiful chiringuito(a beach bar) around a 10 minute walk away situated on the beach serving lovely local food and providing lots of entertainment. We did have a couple of little issues with the villa, ie the front door handle come off in my hand, en suite toilet lock was stuck locking me in from the inside, power tripped regularly, but they are really just petty issues. Overall it is very nice and would stay there again. A car is essential though as torre del mar town is a good 10 minute drive away. The villa is also situated on top of a very steep hill. There are supermarkets everywhere and the town itself is very busy with lots of restaurants and great shops. There's a great water park called aquavelis around a 15 minute drive up the road which is a fab day out too. I'd like to thank luke, pat and Ron for all their help in allowing us to have a very memorable family holiday in this special place and hope to visit again. Thanks again.
