Guestbook comments from the owner

Our kids enjoyed the pool and our trip to Spain was very enjoyable. The house was clean and thanks for the welcome pack on arrival. We were sent many helpful tips on the area, which is certainly worth a visit. All in all a very enjoyable holiday.

Nice and clean, plenty of space, well equipped and amazing views!!!

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children (age 3,8 and 10), who have just returned to Denmark after 2 weeks (July/august) in "Casa Tropical". We really liked this very well equipped House, well maintained, nice and clean with plenty of room for just the five of us. The views are amazing and the kids loved the pools (especially the infinity pool) and the nearby beaches. There are a lot to see and do in the area - for both children and adults. The owners of the House have made some really usefull information, with tips on what to see and do, where to eat, parking tips etc. We Can defintely recommend this place to others and hopefully we'll be back ourselves anothertime!

A lovely villa in a pretty urbanization

  • 4 of 5

A lovely well equipped villa, part of a community some way from both beach and Almunecar itself - a car is essential for those who don't enjoy an uphill walk. The swimming pools were shared with specific opening hours and the pool in the picture was not open when we were staying in October. The house is lovely, very well equipped and decorated and we had a great holiday. There were lots of lovely touches like beach brollies and plentiful information about places to visit. But we were expecting something more private and imagined that '5 mins' mentioned in the description meant walking not driving and we had paid our deposit before we realised we would be part of an urbanization where there's not even a shop to get milk and that the pool was shared - we should have read all the details more carefully.

Owner's Response: We're glad you had a great holiday and thanks for your feedback. The infinity pool is open mid June to mid Sept, this is on the front page of our website Lower rentals rates apply when it is not open. The upper pool is open all year. Milk is always left for guests along with the rest of the welcome pack. We agree a car is needed, we recommend this on our website.

Very comfortable home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 teenagers and my husband and myself. We didn't hire a car but we had no problems with taxis, which are needed due to the very hilly area. It is a bit further out of town than we had thought but taxis to the local Mercadona were not an issue. The infinity pool is BEAUTIFUL and definately made our stay cooler. We even had night dips in the other pool, we weren't alone ☺️. We spend many, evenings on the balcony playing the games there or inside watching DVDs when it was too hot. Totally recommend this place, has everything you would need 😊.

Local area is very Spanish and my children got to practise their language use. Water park is better value for money than I initially thought and bigger than I thought. Bring a picnic! Nerva caves were wonderful and the old town was a delight. Loved it 💞

A cool, peaceful haven from the hot sun

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a wonderful two weeks at Casa Tropical. Eight of us staying age range 9- adult. Very comfortable stay in well equipped home from home. Thoughtful welcome pack on arrival. Air conditioning in July / August was an absolute must and made our nights sleep restful and relaxed. Lovely terrace to spend the evenings. Both pools were lovely. Especially enjoyed the infinity pool which is well maintained and a wonderful place to spend a lazy day. We arrived dead on opening time of 12.00 to secure our spot but despite this being peak season it didn't feel overly crowded. Long strolls along the beach fronts at night and amazing meals on the beach, this really is a beautiful part of Spain. Enjoyed Cabria beach with paddle board hire and stunning Marina del Este beach and marina. We have returned tanned, refreshed and looking forward to returning. Thank you.

Relaxing family location

  • 4 of 5

The description of the house and location was very accurate. Very well equipped house with very welcome and substantial "welcome"pack! Clean and comfortable except for the heat in upstairs bedrooms which were not helped by ceiling fans however the heat in our first week was as everyone told us unseasonably hot!! Air con was broken downstairs but had a mobile unit for first 6 days until wall unit fixed. We didn't want to hire a car as didn't want to go far and found the location a little remote but we had been made aware of this beforehand, however we did name the hill up from the beach as " Heart attack" hill as it is certainly not a location for the unfit or elderly unless have a car. Sonia and her taxis were fabulous, reasonable and v reliable. Almunecar was a lovely old Spanish town.. A trip into Nerja reinforced what we thought, that it is pretty but touristy and totally invaded by Brits whereas Almunecar remains a Spanish holiday town wi th lovely restaurants and heladarias. Problem in second week with jelly fish which we were told is an increasing problem on the whole of the coast along to Marbella andwas slightly off putting but pools at villa were lovely, could be busy but it was holiday season and we always managed to find sun loungers, restricted at the larger pool by opening times as didn't open until 12 which was a shame but didn't spoil things. The owners were very quick to respond to any queries or problems and helped everything go smoothly.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. As you say, the aircon is now fixed. We did suggest a car if staying here, however the local taxis are cheap and reliable as you found out.
