Impressive Villa and location!

  • 5 of 5

As a group of 11, we were very impressed with the villa and space on offer, a warm welcome by the owner, Robert when we arrived followed by a quick overview of the essentials, also was very helpful with local advice such as supermarkets, etc.

The villa is well located near to the marina, however was quiet enough to think you were not too close. We found Gringo’s steak house and Mombasa bar worth a visit if you like your red meat and a dance afterwards.

Buses to Marbella were around 7 euros during the day and would take around an hour to get there, the bus stop was located only 5 minutes walk from the villa.

The pool table was an added bonus, kept in handy when relaxing by the pool. All in all a superb villa in a great location, we all left thinking we would not hesitate to book the villa again.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 fantastic weeks at the villa. We took our children and grandchildren there were 11 of us. 5 grandchildren ranging from 11 to 5 it was great for them. Our youngest ava learnt to dive and swim the length of the pool. It is a very convenient villa being on one level, everyone feels involved all the time. It is so convenient for the marina, shops and restaurants easy to just pop out if you have forgotten anything. Bob was very helpful and we had a lovely trip on his boat. Would highly recommend this villa

Fabulous holiday at El Pirata!

  • 4 of 5

We have recently returned from a 10 day stay at villa El Pirata on Benalmadena Costa. There were 12 of us in total, ages ranging from 15 to 79, and all had a very enjoyable stay there. The villa was well equipped, and there was plenty of space for us all to relax by the lovely pool and garden area during the day, whilst enjoying a few BBQ'S in the evenings. The only issue on arrival was discovering that there was no pool table - which had been a big sell for our 4 boys - however they did find several venues with pool tables in the very near vicinity so they weren't too disappointed in the end! The location of this villa was absolutely perfect for us. Although it is situated a few minutes walk uphill from the Puerto Marina and beachfront, where there are ample bars and restaurants, it was in a very peaceful area. Carrying on uphill from the villa, there are again various venues for eating/drinking, with a large LIDL supermarket on hand for all your essentials. The central location of the villa was ideal for all our young people (aged 15-24), giving them freedom and independence whilst feeling safe when out and about on their own. They have in fact all asked about going back again next year, and we are certainly looking into that now! Special thanks to Christina and Robert for all the pre-travel arrangements, and Robert was only a few mins away if we needed any help with anything. We also took advantage of taking a trip out on Robert's boat on our last day - it was a beautiful trip and a perfect end to a fantastic holiday!

Absolutely perfect property

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property for my partner and some of his friends for a weekend holiday, and they were so thrilled with it that they've decided they'd like to book again next year. It was ideal for them as a group, as all beds were single (meaning no-one had to share doubles), the place was spotlessly clean and well-presented and it was walking distance from the Marina and the 24-hr square. They particularly loved the pool, which was large and clean, and the privacy of the grounds. Much better than staying at a hotel and sharing grounds and pool with strangers! The owner and manager were very nice and helpful and we will definitely be looking to book another stay at this villa.

Lovely villa in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa this weekend for my cousins hen party. A group of 13 girls looking to relax in the day and party at night. The villa was perfect for this, all on one level with 5 bedrooms all a decent size. 3 bathrooms was plenty for all of us. The pool and BBQ area were perfect for relaxing. Location was the best possible - literally a 2 minute walk from the marina. The only issue was it is a slight up hill and with heels and a couple of drinks was hard work!!! Christina was brilliant from the 1st da I contacted her, always helpful and answered her emails quickly. Will definately be visiting again with friends / family as this villa is really suitable for everyone. Thanks for everything Christina!

fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

our second stay at this fantastic villa and again we are very impressed by the whole place, from the living rooms to the bedrooms and especially the gardens and pool area.we have looked at other villas in the area and this is by far the best we have seen.spotlessly clean throughout and so convenient for all the local attractions like the beach,marina ,shops and restaurants.

christina was so helpful with anything we wanted from transfers to offering to get some shopping for us for when we arrived as it was a bank holiday and made the arranging of our stay so easy.

highly recommended.
