The villa was as described, with a lovely private and secluded roof terrace with plenty of sun and shade. The villa was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well supplied with cutlery, crockery, saucepans etc, and had a lovely large fridge with freezer. There was a useful very small back yard with just enough room for 3 washing lines to dry clothes.
The 2 pools were very clean and there was a lifeguard on site most of the day. There were no sun loungers by the pool but plenty of grass for sunbathing.
There were 2 good supermarkets around 10 minutes walk away, which were open on Sundays from June-Sept. There was only one very small beach with one nice restaurant overlooking the sea within 30 mins walking distance. You would need a car to get to decent beaches.
We were welcomed by the owners on site manager (Dave) who was very helpful and showed us how everything worked. We had asked the owners to provide a basic welcome pack (bread, milk, water etc) which Dave provided at cost price. He also visited us during our stay to check that everything was OK and gave us the phone number of an English speaking taxi company.
The villa exceeded our expectations in its cleanliness, size, private sun patio, English TV stations, washing machine, kitchen equipment, helpfulness of site manager, that the pools were often empty and that there were 2 toilets (downstairs cloakroom and main upstairs bathroom). The air conditioning in the bedrooms and lounge was great!
Disappointments: one of the 2 sun loungers was broken, the sun lounger cushions were tatty, and there were no good beaches within walking distance. Also it was 55 minutes from Alicante airport, and a taxi cost around 70 euros each way.
It is an ideal villa if you want a quiet sunbathing holiday in a well equipped villa with 2 communal swimming pools. It is not good if you want a lively location with lots of nightlife and beaches, unless you have a car.
We wanted a quiet sunbathing holiday, which we thoroughly enjoyed, and we would certainly stay in this villa again.
