While the service received from your personnel was really good, the condition of the villa was really below what we expected:
The on site tennis court which was the main reason to chose this villa was not existing. Your personnel offered the best they could, i.e. a facility 15 minutes away, but this is not at all equivalent to an on site tennis court.
Instead of the ability to cook on the terrasse, we found a covered place and a new glass-covered extension to the living room. Unfortunately, it rained heavily through the roof so that the sofas inside that new room were too wet to be used. Again, your personnel did what they could and came every morning to dry the floor and lay bathing towels on the floor to cover the wet parts, but again this is not the standard we expected.
I am very sorry to write such a critical review, but this was our experience. Again, we would not hesitate to book through Luxury Retreats again, the service was great, but this villa was not what we expected.
We had an amazing time on are winter brake for new year at villa el cid marbella. The easy and helpfulness of the luxury retreats staff Kelly and Ian made the booking process relaxing and stress free. The villa it's self was very nice, they never charged us for the heating. We had a fantastic time and the villa played it's part. Vali the on site staff was amazing extremely helpful and even fixed my wheelchair when it broke the man seamed to be able to do anything for us and was happy doing so he was the icing on the cake.
We had a great family vacation. The villa was great for our faimily of 12. ( there is lseeping for another 12....) so plent of rrom and comfort. The kids loved the indoor swimming pool (4 times a day). The outdoor kitchen was the super place to hang out for the coocking by the family. We even made great pizzas in de wood fiire oven.
The weather was dissapointing for 3 days but that was not a problem since the house .offered space and comfort. We had the chf coming in for 2 evenings, also very good and rekaxing. Exceplent food. Friendly personnel. Complete service including perfect clean up.
The.local concierge was the best ! Vally did it all. He was always there to help out on anything,
We enjoyed our stay very much. Were happy we had chosen El Cid over El Cano. It had more large grassy area and space for the numerous teens. Your pictures could stand updating to reflect no putting green and really no exercise room as shown. There was a treadmill, some mats and 3 exercise balls. The other equipment has been moved. Believe the walls around the indoor pool were modified and thus the exercise room became a hall with a treadmill. This was not an issue for us as we preferred the outdoors. We used the grassy expanse (former putting green) for soccer and other games. Enjoyed the tennis court, and the well kept pools. We knew in advance about the putting greens absence because we inquired about putters before leaving. Some of our family golfed at Los Flamingos. Our caretaker--Vali, could not have been more available. We had some difficulty with the coffee machine several times and he came immediately. He worked continually doing exterior maintenance.
The experience of El Cid is one I'll never forget.From te moment we arived til the moment that we were leaving we were so well taken care of and any request was taken care of. Helen (the villa manager)was there to greet us, to explain about the villa and to tell us the places of interest locally. She gave us phone nos and told us she was available at all times. But then there was VALI who was the maintenance man. He was living on site and available day and night to advise, assist and maintain the property. Whether you wanted a taxi or a take away, VALI was able to help. He literally was worth his weight in gold and one of the best assets the villa has.We had the most wonderful and unforgetable holiday ever. the only thing wrong was that we had to leave but we will always have the wonderful memories.
Although mostly sunny, we had some marine fog in the area and the location of the villa was above the fog and this was a most pleasant fact. The access to the Costa del Sol from the Villa was perfect. The location is about mid point for that area. We drove north, east and west to see the sites and enjoy the local flavours. The ammenities of the villa are outstanding. Have some left over cash to pay for the electricity cost however. This may claim your last $1000 euros depending on how many are in your party and the use of electricity.
