Spacious Comfortable Villa
Submitted: August 6, 2012
Stayed: July 2012
We stayed at The Villa in July 2012 with 5 children under 7 in our party, the pool was especially popular with the children. There is plenty of outdoor sunbathing space but not grassed area for children to play, though with the pool to occupy them they weren't to bothered by this.
The Villa was as described, it was spacious, clean and comfortable with good facilities especially in the kitchen and barbeque area when cooking for 12 people! The property was clean upon our arrival and was generally well maintained.
The washing machine and washing line proved very useful although don't rely on Spanish washing powder to clean your clothes well.
The caretakers live across the road and proved extremley helpful; meeting us on arrival, giving lifts to the supermarket and to the local golf course. Although we didn't have any problems we felt that they were very approachable if we did.
We didn't hire cars so only went to the beach once as it is quite a distance and not walkable. La Xenia beach is a good beach with good facilities for children including play area and climbing frame. The bar and toilets were very clean and well maintained.
We visited Villamartin Plaza on a few occasions and would reccommend the Argentinian Steak House, they were very child friendly and even though it was busy couldn't do enough for us. We also visted the Urban Centre and had a lovely lunch at an italian restaurant. There are 2 good bars less than 5 minutes walk of the villa and several more as well as shops/convinience stores within 10 minutes walk. There is also a hourly bus service into Villamartin/beach. Villamartin Plaza is a 15 minute walk away just far enough for little legs!
Overall we were pleased with the villa we had a great family holiday which was mostly spent relaxing/splashing by the pool. The villa was family friendly with enough space for our party to go and hide/chill out and do their own thing if they so wished. English TV was especially useful to keep the children occupied when respecting siesta time.
Our party would reccomended this villa. Car would be useful but not essential.
