''We were delighted on arriving to the villa. Set in a lovely area. We were most impressed. The outside area is fantastic, just what you need on holiday. Inside the villa, a lovely surprise, clean, modern, well equiped, perfect, we couldnt have asked for a better villa. As a family we were so happy to have found such a great base for our holiday. Coral Bay itself is ideal for anyone. Everything is within walking distance, so much choice of food and drink. Local supermarket great value for money. The locals are very friendly, polite and welcoming. Our manager who came to see us was very helpful indeed. She made us feel very welcome and gave us advice on the local buses and attractions. We would definately book again. The taxi driver who was booked for our transfers was brilliant. Very helpful, happy and the kids loved him. Thank you so much. ''
