We used the villa to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday so we were a diverse family. My husband and I took the master suite with the fabulous sun drenched private balcony with indoor/outdoor hot spa. This looks directly over the pool and is directly above the shaded patio area. Siting under the stars each evening with a bottle of Spanish cava is a perfect way to end a long lazy sunny Spanish day. My daughter, her partner and our 4 year old granddaugher had their own wing with 2 bedrooms! This meant those upstairs could remain undisturbed for long lie in's:) Our son and his girlfriend took the final bedroom, a twin above the kitchen with a beautiful glass walled bathroom - this was the smallest of the bedroom accommodation but was just about big enough with a Romeo & Juliet balcony over the pool. Kitchen was well equipped although the oven being next to the fridge meant you had to be careful that the doors weren't opened together. The patio area directly off the kitchen was where we ate - we never used the large dining table in the lounge - and the covered patio area was perfect for evening cocktails. The basement is full of fun with loads to do and so the villa is healthy on the pocket as you have everything you need to keep guests entertained.
Points of constructive criticism:
1. The villa is high tech and this might be a problem for some. My hub's in IT and working the TV's even foxed him! we never used the TV in our bedroom as we couldn't get it to work. Out granddaughter loved the tech having access to all her favourite shows i.e. CBeebies, Netflix etc. Tons of movies to choose from but the quality wasn't always good. We were excited about using the cinema room but bizarrely it was the most unused facility for us.
2. The bedrooms have very little furniture other than a bed so bedside cabinets were missed, although the master suite does have them. Wardrobe space is extensive with a walk in dresser available in the master suite.
The local area is lovely with a great traditional restaurant 10 mins walk away - my son felt compelled to propose to his girlfriend there! The beach is just a little further. Costa Mijas is lovely for families and really traditional. Mijas Pueblo (village) is a must visit too. You can keep Marbella and Puerto Banus, Costa Mijas had everything we needed.
Will we use the villa again? Definitely.
Would we recommend the villa to family and friends? Definitely.
Maria (owner) was a breeze to work with and very very helpful.
This was the third time i have stayed in this villa. We love it, Marie always gets back to us quickly during the booking process. Raffa is always on hand in Spain to assist when required. Top class villa, best we have ever stayed in.
Villa Suenodos review August 2015
An absolutely fantastic villa that lives up to every word in the reviews.
We spent a great week here in August and have already booked our return visit.
The villa is situated in a quiet elevated location set opposite mature gardens and very tranquil.
The owners have put a lot of thought into the design with regard to layout , comfort, and access and created a very welcoming place to stay.
We spoke with the owners on a number of occasions prior to our arrival and it was real pleasure to find people so helpful and knowledgeable about the local area
Our party of 8 ranged in age from 10 to 80 and everyone really enjoyed themselves. The pool is very inviting and the graduated slope into the pool rather than steps makes it very easy to wade into or just splash in the shallows. Once again the design offers an ample sunbathing area or cooler shaded seating areas for those hot Spanish afternoon siestas, and of course if it gets too hot you can always take some time out in the air conditioned cinema, Children and adults alike found themselves reacquainting with Star wars as well as some of the latest releases, certainly no need to take your own DVDs or fill your Ipads with lots of movies.
We had the benefit of arriving before the rest of our party and really struggled to decide which room to opt for as all had a variety of attributes ranging from French doors direct to the pool, 1st floor sunbathing terrace, indoor / outdoor hot tub, the additional benefit of the lift also made it far easier for getting those cases upstairs and quick access to the Gym if you were looking for an easy start to your workout.
The villa is also well situated to a good variety of restaurants and bars as well as a well stocked local supermarket capable of providing all your needs for your stay without having to waste half a day in some hyper market. Everything was a short walk away and five minutes further on from the local bars you will find the beach and some great hotels with very good restaurants if you want to have a bigger night out.
A car would have been a waste of time and the transfer by taxi from Malaga was made easy due to local knowledge once again from the owners.
Villa Suenodos is the sort of place you can happily while away your day in the sun by the pool and enjoy listening to the cicadas while dining and relaxing with good company late into a perfect Spanish evening.... and isn't that why we go on holiday
The villa is quite decieving from the outside but once inside our minds were blown! The kids were never out of the pool and the cinema was a god send on a night time. Most relaxing holidey ever had and definately booking again next year.
This was my first stay at this property and I have to say it was amazing.
Every part of the Villa is to a high standard...no Euro's were spared when this was built.
It is set in a quiet road but close to La cala.
All the bedrooms have TV with a choice of hundreds of movies if you fancy some quiet time away on your own.
The squash court and gym is a great area as is the Sauna and hot tub.
The cinema room is very decadent and my niece spent evenings in there feeling very grown up being able to go the cinema on her own!
We ate in and had BBQ's as the kitchen facilities are way above your usual standard. The seating area outside is a perfect location to sit, eat, talk and share good wine.
I have stayed at all of the Villas owned by this couple and they all deliver the location for a perfect holiday..Enjoy..I did.
Perfect. . . . . Just spent a wonderful time at this amazing villa, the description is accurate but doesn't do it justice, seeing is believing!! I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa, it was absolutely fantastic, so comfortable with lots of luxury touches, in a peaceful but close to lots of action location with a great supermarket a few minutes walk away. The owners really have thought of everything, really well managed, spotlessly clean, well equipped and I would most definitely return time and time again.
Amenities are right on your doorstep, about a 2 minute stroll is supermarket and restaurants, 3 min from beach. It is only a short drive to La Cala which has some good bars/restaurants and a twice weekly market. Golf courses are within 3 min in each direction. Main bus route east and west to Marbella and Fuengirola within a 5/min stroll. Aqua park and Zoo 10/min drive. Main Train and Bus Station are situated in Fuengirola.
