About DR ALEX IBHADON
I live in the North East of England with my wife and have four children all grown up and dotted around the UK working. I purchased the Villa as a holiday home for the family which I am happy to share with others when we are not using the Villa ourselves.
DR ALEX IBHADON purchased this Villa in 2013
Why DR ALEX IBHADON chose Teguise
I used to own a property in Cyprus and wanted another Villa in the Sun. I looked initially in the Costa del Sol area in Spain; however I didn't find anything that caught my eye. A friend mentioned to me that Lanzarote was a beautiful Island which had good all year weather, which mainland Spain does not. On my first trip I saw this Villa and made an offer instantly. It was like nothing I'd seen in over a year of looking and ticked all my boxes. Sea views, mountain views, massive plot size, 4 bed 2 bath, spacious, great pool, private, easy access and close to the beautiful beaches. My eldest son (29) describes it as having a 'wow factor'; it really does have that feel, yet at the same time it’s a very welcoming Villa situated in the quiet and most exclusive residential area in Costa Teguise.
What makes this Villa unique
The Villa is very spacious (364m2 built) and has an unusual and unique architecture. Villa has a huge 'wow' factor is absolutely ideal for large families, weddings, birthdays and the other big occasions. In addition to the large, stunning heated pool (p.s you will not see another pool like this in the area) the property benefits from a spacious and unique lounge with an atrium roof that bring in rays of the Canary Island sun into the Villa. A chef’s kitchen is a delight for the chefs among you (the previous owner owned a restaurant on the Island and modelled the kitchen on his own professional culinary experience). There is space outside and around the Villa to park up to 10 cars. The Villa itself is located in the most exclusive residential area of Ciudad Jardin in Costa Teguise - the privacy you have is beautiful. Wall lights, security cameras and detectors. Two upstairs room terraces offering glorious sea and mountain views. Has the largest pool in a residential villa in Costa teguise and the greatest benefit is the space -lots of it. Two lounges, two diners, two utility rooms, fully private and secure, tv in every room as well as lounge. Over 100 channels on each TV including BBC, Sky news and Sports Channels.

Very lovely family house
Pleasantly surprised by the beauty and peacefulness of the location. The family house has all the requirements for a 5 star holiday location. Would love to visit again
Very spacious family home with pool
A very spacious home great for the family in a very peaceful area. Big swimming pool. Would recommend
We stayed at Villa Palacial in June 2018. We were a party of 7 adults, 1 teenager and a young child.
The Villa far exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful and had everything you needed and more. There was plenty of space for everyone and we did not feel we were on top of each other.
You walk in to a galleried walkway and gorgeous staircase. All wooden floor and stairs from the front door and also around from the kitchen area which lead down to the huge sitting area with a beautiful chandelier.
The kitchen was spacious and equipped with everything we needed.
The bedrooms were again spacious and two of which had their own private balconies.
The upstairs bathroom again did not disappoint it was again very large and beautiful.
There was total privacy but fantastic views of the mountains.
The pool was great perfect for smaller children as was not too deep. There was plenty of space outside and loungers for everyone, whether you wanted to be on the terrace quietly reading a book or down round the pool you could take your pick.
The Villa had Wifi which kept our teenage daughter happy and in touch with her friends back home.
The amenities were not far away, 20 minute walk or so down to the beach and the square with plenty of restaurants, supermarkets and bars.
Alex the owner kept us updated and sent us a text the night before. We only required to contact the Villa Manager once and he was helpful and easily reached. In the information pack we were provided with a telephone number for Miguel, the taxi driver. We arrived later on the evening when it was dark. We were hungry and unfamiliar with our surroundings. One text to Miguel and he arrived within 5 minutes and dropped us at the square and pointed out to us helpful places on the extremely short trip to the square. We did use Miguel a few times after that and he was always there to pick us up and take us wherever we wanted to go.
We would definitely stay at Villa Palacial again and thank you to Alex for allowing us to stay in this beautiful Villa in such peaceful and tranquil surroundings.
This Villa will not disappoint.
Holiday like a Rock Star!
Our extended family of 7 (Mum, Dad, three boys 18,14,11 and Grandparents) had a fantastic week at Villa Palacial.
The property can only be described as a Rock Star’s Villa. The individually designed, spacious villa is maintained to a high spec in a beautifully setting, with well-tended gardens and terracing overlooking a large pool. The layout gives pretty much total privacy without losing any of the views out towards the sea, or inland across to the local extinct volcano and distant mountains.
The villa is in easy reach of Arricife airport (15 min drive) and the main areas of Costa Teguise (Beach, Restaurants, Shops, Supermarkets) are barely a 5 minute drive away or a 20 min walk. We hired a car for our stay.
The Villa was clean and tidy when we arrived. Entering through the door, you step onto a galleried walkway to the kitchen and dining area, passing the sweeping staircase to the bedrooms and overlooking an enormous rotunda lounge area. The large chandelier reminded me of a medieval banqueting hall.
The pool is a good size and fine for smaller children too.
The kitchen is well appointed with everything you need to self-cater if you choose. The large dining area has two tables and a long sofa.
The bedrooms are all spacious, two of the upstairs bedrooms have their own large terrace balcony with wonderful views. The upstairs bathroom is huge. All are well appointed.
The owner Alex kept us in regular communication, sent through directions and lots of helpful information in an email, and called us the night before our holiday to wish us well and remind us who to contact in the event of anything we may need during our stay. He also texted straight after our holiday to make sure everything had gone to plan.
To answer some of the other reviews; the neighbour’s dog could be heard barking some mornings but it wasn’t an issue, it was only for a short time and not a problem. We didn't need AirCon in February. Never heard a Cockerel. We didn't use the dishwasher. We paid for pool heating which was great on a sunny day, we had a few cooler days with a strong wind and the heating only just took the edge off. We were warned by Alex that the Wifi was slow and to hire a WiFi box if needed. We were happy that the slow Wifi forced our teenage sons to re-engage with the family and it was very welcome. Most bars and restaurants have free WiFi so they still got their Social Media.
Highly recommended and would happily visit again.
I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Palacial. We look forward to having you, family and friends as guests in the very near future in Villa Palacial
Spectacular villa in beautiful Costa Teguise
I spent 5 days at the villa with 4 friends and thier two children. Beautiful property, very family friendly. Maintained to an excellent standard. Luxurious decoration and furnishing throughout the villa. Extremely clean and well equipped kitchen. Quiet location and just 10 minutes to local amenities. Looking forward to coming again and staying at this fabulous villa.
A wonderful villa full of character and warmth
Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay at Villa Pallacial.
Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space if required and plenty of areas for families to sit together; especially beside the fantastic pool which Alex has recently had reduced in depth which suited my niece who wanted to build her confidence in water. Needless to say the kids were in the pool everyday and thoroughly enjoyed their time.
Like other reviewers we also sat around the dining area for any evening tv/movies as the rear projection tv screen in the living room is out of the ark now technology wise and a black and white grainy image was best we could fine tune. We tried to hook up the DVD so we could have a family cinema night all snuggled in on the vast sofa.....sadly picture was good but this time no sound. Shame as the lounge area would have been nicer to settle into on an evening but the kitchen and dining area was more than adequate. I'm sure Alex will look at getting an updated TV for the lounge that works in due course.
As some other guests have said yes there are the occasional dogs barking but this is a residential street and last time I looked our UK neighbours are allowed to have dogs also, so these odd barks or Cockeralls heralding the dawn of a new day were not a nuisance; we found the neighbourhood to be quiet and very secure.
Perfect central location for all the islands attractions and a nice walk (15min to closest beach Playa Bastion with a fab restaurant) or 30min walk into Costa Teguise itself.
Off road parking was a bonus.
Though I adore cooking I cant say much about the kitchen as we ate out most days/nights, though a pool of water was found each morning near fridge and freezer so these appliances could be looked at being replaced. As others mention the dishwasher badly needs replaced (top drawer falls off, if you open bottom drawer be sure to hold onto dishwasher at the top otherwise it tips) but you know it did the job we needed for the odd plate and cup but probably would have driven us mad if doing a full plates, pots and pans wash.
Would we come back to Villa Pallacial; we most definitely would for the space, comfort, the pool, location and security of the property.
Thanks Alex for letting out your property.
Gavin Chilvers stayed 23rd July to 6th August 2017.
I am pleased that you and family enjoyed your stay in villa Palacial (Palatial). I note your observation regarding the very large TV in the second lounge-one of the 5 TVs in the villa. This huge TV has an inbuilt cinema effect functionality, with impressive sound system. We will attempt to fix foggy pictures(I thought this was due to the poor reception brough about by the heavy rain in Lanzarote in July), but if unsuccessful, will replace with a new TV in September, although 5 TVs are not really needed I guess. My priority is to ensure that guests enjoy their stay in the villa and the villa management work hard to achieve this.
Above all the major draw of Costa Teguise are the beaches. There are four beaches in Costa Teguise, the main one, set in a beautiful cove is Las Cucharas; offering fine golden sand, sun loungers and parasols to rent. This beach is ideal for families and also offers facilities for Windsurfing and Diving. There are a number of beach front cafes and restaurants where you can eat on the shady terraces. The villa is roughly a 20 minute walk from Las Cucharas beach (5 minutes in the car)
Arrecife airport is 15 min drive from villa. Supermarkets, beach, restaurants, schools, amenities are all within walking distance of the villa and a car is not essential, but recommended especially if you do not like walking.
The place is a jogger's paradise!
Villa is 15 minute drive from Arrecife airport, 20-25 min walk (5 minute drive) to the beach, restaurants, supermarkets, 10 min walk to the international school and 15 walk to the banks. Many supermarkets - including the Spa, Supermacado along Crotos Avenue/Street, and many more in Playa Bastian are all within walking distance of villa. If you like walking, then we do not recommend a car at all.It is actually better to take one of the many footpaths available instead of walking on main roads.
One of the great appeals of Costa Teguise is its recreational facilities which run from a large variety of water activities to the golf course and water park. You'll find several windsurfing schools along the Cucharas Beach and Jablillo Avenue.
Sporting and cultural events in Costa Teguise have multiplied during the last years. Qualifiers for the PWA Windsurfing World Championship at Cucharas Beach in June, the Costa Music Festival in September, the Brazilian Music Festival in June, are among the many events that take place here.
In addition to the beaches you should also visit the Pueblo Marinero (fishing village) which is a cluster of typical Canary buildings as conceived by the artist, César Manrique. Restaurants, pubs and shops, as well as a market held every Friday from 19:00 hours, can be found there.
Within a 20 min walk is the main Costa Teguise Resort which has all the amenities you need and more. The resort has been sympathetically built offering a lovely sea front promenade and a number of Plaza’s such as Pueblo Marinero square. Every Friday evening form 6pm Pueblo Marinero comes alive with a small market which goes on late in evening.
Costa Teguise has a wide variety restaurants ranging from Canarian to British styles, catering for everyone’s needs.
The supermarkets do offer a great selection in foods (there is a supermarket close by the Villa - 10 mins walk) generally this offers a good range of local and imported products.
Other activates on offer in Costa Teguise are cycling, golf, running and walking. There is an 18 hole golf course located up on the road to Tahiche and a number of walking/running tracks which meander through out Costa Teguise.
Lanzarote’s only Water Park is located right next to the golf course and gives a great family day out this is open from 1st April to 30th October.
You do not need a car to shops, restaurants, banks etc - simply walk by taking the many footpaths available instead of main streets.
