Our family has enjoyed several great vacations up and down the coast of our home state, CA. We opted for a destination trip this year, and we were treated to an experience that has left memories we will long treasure. A few minutes after our arrival, my daughter stated, "This is paradise," Indeed, Villa Albatros offered us a luxurious haven of beauty and relaxation. The many reviews that precede this one enticed us to book with Robert, and I here attest that the glowing praise for the villa and the staff is well founded. The attention to detail regarding food and drink paid by Johnny and chef Angel made for blissful dining and imbibing at meal times and happy hour. The service rendered by housekeepers Mari and Martha was thorough, but not intrusive. They, as well as Johnny and Angel, maintained a mutual admiration society with our small grandchildren, which was heart-warming to observe. The vigilance of the watchman Enrique made us feel secure at all times. He also made our first cup of morning coffee, to be followed later by delicious espressos and cappuccinos provided by the staff. Andreas, the house manager was ever responsive to our individual needs, both during the planning stages and throughout our stay. He ensured that all of our dietary concerns were addressed, and that our transportation, excursions and entertainment went smoothly. Both the owner, Robert, and Andreas responded quickly to our many questions for clarification early on, and they helped to ensure that our expectations were not only met, but exceeded. Our only problem now is, how do we top our vacation at Villa Albatros? We may just have to revisit Paradise. Lucky are those who have such an opportunity.
