Arrived to it raining! to be met by Alfonso the maintenance man with an umbrella.! What a lovely guy very helpful even with little English he used google translate. Any issues he was there within the hour to deal with. Beautiful secluded villa just perfect for what we wanted. Supermarket 10 minute's walk there is also a lovely little gift shop at cortijo blanco hotel run by an English couple, also staff at hotel were wonderful & printed out boarding passes even with us not staying there. Bit of a struggle walking to Puerto banus with a mother in law in her 70s! nice stroll once we found out way through winding streets to promenade it took about an hour, but we survived. Taxi back is about €9 Would definitely like to come back one day.
Gerlinde Mayer Review of the Villa La Caracola
The villa is in an excellent location very near to the beach and within walking distance to the Puerto Banus and San Pedro de Alcantara. Our family of 8 adults and 3 children fully enjoyed the beautiful garden, Jacuzzi and the swimming pool during our two weeks stay. A short walking distance to the Palm planted promenade with great restaurants was a great plus. Do not miss enjoying the super seafood restaurant of Nueve Reino. The supermarket and a few other hotels are also within a short walking distance. The representative Mr. Alfonso was specially very helpful to make our stay most pleasurable. We certainly will visit again.

Avoid this villa
We and The manager (also owner) had agreed to our stay for one week in one of his bigger villas which was settled by contract and a prepayment. 2 days before our departure when I mailed him for further information he responded very brief by saying that our villa was rented to a another family and that we had been transferred to villa Caracola, which is a much smaller villa. When I called him and asked how this could happen since we had an agreement (contract) and had payed him in advance, his response was that he had sent mail (which I never received) and that we should be glad that we have a villa at all to stay at. I could not understand how this could be possible. In my opinion he was really rude and abnoctious which made me really angry.
The villa is really old and in bad shape. Also the small streets are not child friendly or stroller friendly. Bear in mind that the villa is also full of small insects. During our stay, as the previous reviewer also mentioned, we had been promised (and also according to the villa site) to receive 2 days cleaning but received only one, even after several phone calls.
I definitely believe that there are better options in Puerto Banus with better condition and where you actually can get the villa you have paid for.
The Villa La Caracola is a first-class and very beautiful villa located within 150 meters to the beach in the high class and exclusive Cortijo Blanco Urbanization. It is within a short walking distance to the Puerto Banus and famous Ocean Club along the lighted and palm planed promenade. It is quite clear that the reviewer has made a revengeful review due to the misunderstanding between him and the real estate agent because he offered him an alternative villa. This is also reflective by the fact that the reviewer submitted his review almost one year later than the time of his visit. Indeed we are very proud in providing superior services to our highly valued guests who mostly visit us year after year.
Lamentable el trato recibido
Muy decepcionados con el trato recibido, nos hemos sentido timados. Cuando firmas el contrato, consientes que entre una persona de la limpieza dos días por semana. La sorpresa llega cuando esta persona entra sin previo aviso con sus propias llaves y se te mete hasta las habitaciones. Después, a la hora de devolver la fianza, inventaron que había más personas en la casa de las estipuladas en el contrato, para no devolver la fianza al completo. Nuestra experiencia ha sido decepcionante y un auténtico fraude.
