Just back today........and I must admit...the Villa was everything and so much more...beautiful ! Wife,myself, two sons, daughter in law and our 3 year old grandson on a family holiday...we could not have asked for anything more. The weather was scorching and the pool (which was spotless) felt like a trip to paradise. We were met by Rhoda who was very helpful, pleasant, and friendly. Great time from the word go.
Thankyou for a wonderful immaculate Villa.

Great holiday, loved the villa, Alan & Rhoda were very accommodating. The beach in La Marina is the best in the area, lifeguard, restaurant, beach shack for drinks (only problem is no shower). Went on a day trip to Guadalest, beautiful place..

Once again, an excellent 2-week holiday. The villa was absolutely spotless with plenty of restaurants in the vicinity. The help given by Alan and Rhoda was, as usual, exceptional and helped us enjoy the stay even more the second time around. Their advice to visit Santa Pola and Guardamar was taken and we thoroughly enjoyed both places they are only a short distance by car away.. We will be returning and we have recommended the villa most highly to all our friends.

The villa was absolutely brilliant. In fact, it was so good that the kids wanted to spend the whole time there. The pool was a god-send, particularly in the heat of a Spanish summer the villa was in immaculate condition it has everything you need for a relaxing family holiday and the caretakers were extremely helpful.
If you are looking for an outstanding family villa for up to six people within striking distance of Alicante then look no further! Would I recommend to a friend? I already have!

The villa was exactly as described and much better. We were so pleased we choose this villa for our short stay. Alan was extremely helpful with all our questions and nothing was a problem for him. The pool was fantastic. We really can’t fault this villa at all and we are already looking at booking again. But this time we will be going for longer. The photos on the website do the villa no justice at all and in our opinion it is understated. It is totally idyllic and beautiful. There were six of us, all adults and there was plenty of space and we were never under each others feet. We have already recommended this villa to family and friends who are all interested in booking. Thank you to the owners for letting this fantastic villa. Five star villa highly recommended.
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review - glad you enjoyed your stay.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in this area of Spain. Alan and Rhoda were extremely helpful and couldnt do enough for us to ensure our stay was everything we hoped for. The villa is beautiful, the pictures on the website do not do it justice so we were more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The villa had absolutely everything we needed, so much so it was difficult to leave on some days. We hired a car which I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to see a bit more of the area. La marina itself is fairly quiet but there are restaurants and bars and shops within walking distance from the villa. We also enjoyed trips to Guadamar, Santa Polo and Benidorm and Altea in the car. Our party consisted of 4 adults and a 2 year old and I can honestly say we all found the holiday really enjoyable but most of all relaxing - no mean feat with a 2 year old abroad! This is thanks to the carefully thought out layout and contents of the viila and the most helpful housekeepers, Alan and Rhoda. Many thanks for an amazing holiday, we would definitely consider returning and have already recommended it to friends and family.
Sophie, thank you for taking the time and submitting an extremely kind review. It would be great to welcome you back and thank you for recommending the villa to family & friends. Best Regards

First time to this property, 2nd time at "La Marina." Very impressed, good position, privacy and lovely pool. Had a great time. Used the kitchen which was more than adequate with plenty of pots, pans and utensils. Pool toys and other games provided. TV excellent with "Sky Sports." Clean and well presented. Lovely to meet up with Rhoda, Alan and Rachel from our previous visit (they look after this property as well). Very friendly. Plenty of help and advice re places to visit, things to do, and also package re this written in villa. Cant understand previous complaint re cleaning fee because clearly written in agreement on booking and worth having because even if kept clean during the stay still requires proper cleaning, towels and bedding.
Wouldnt hesitate to return. You have a great villa Grant and Jackie.
Thanks for a lovely holiday, John, Chris, and Alex Melrose from Scunthorpe, North Lincs..
John, thanks for taking the time to place a review and thank you for being so positive. As you mentioned the cleaning charge is clearly highlighted and is needed to ensure the villa is to a high standard when people arrive. It would be great to see you back again. Best Regards gran t

An excellent, well kept and spacious villa which provided our family with a fantastic holiday.
The pool (kids loved it) was a welcome break from the heat with a lovely cool veranda in the evenings.
There a host of activities available though you will require a car.
All in all a great villa, excellent location, with a friendly and helpful welcome !
Gavin, thanks for your kind review and glad your family enjoyed themselves. Regards gran t

Well talk about a wonderful holiday in a beautiful villa, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in the villa and fab pool. It was absolutely immaculate and spacious. It was our 2nd time in the area and we will definately go back again. Alan and Rhoda were available to us at all times but everything was so laid on we didnt even need to call them. Many thanks guys for the Sat. It made our holiday. So thank you Grant and Jacky for the use of your villa and have a wonderful holiday yourselves.
Elaine - Thanks for your review and glad you and and your family enjoyed your time in La Marina. It would be great to see you back in the future. Best regards, gran t

This was an absolute fantastic holiday that we all enjoyed immensely. The villa was equipped with everything you needed and shops for day to day living were within a short walking distance. The villa is located in a very quiet area yet only a 10 minute walk and you are at a variety of restaurants and bars. The pool is a definite asset and is maintained immaculately by Alan who maintains the property along with Rhoda. They were a tremendous source of information and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend this villa and area to anyone who wants a stress free holiday.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lemon Tree Villa. The area itself was very clean and tidy, and the Villa was incredible. It had all the facilities of home and the added bonus of the private swimming pool.
It is in a good, central location, not far from the airport and is not too far to drive to Alicante, Benidorm or Cartegena.
We are already looking at booking again for next year.
Kim, thank you for your kind review Im glad you had a thorougly good holiday. Alan & Rhoda look forward to you booking next year.
Review submitted by Steve from Bradford (Submitted: 15 Oct 2009)
We found Lemon Tree Villa to be absolutely as described on the Web Site. We have stayed in a number of Villas across Europe which have all been good. Trying to seperate them all is difficult but for us this one was certainly the best presented. It was absolutely spotless in every sense and a credit to the owners.
The surrounding area suited both myself and my wife, pleasantly quiet but within easy reach of both the beach and shops.
We would happilly recommend the villa.
Steve - thanks for your kind comments and the solid recommendation. The presentation of the villa is all down to the hardwork of Rhoda and Alan.

FROM BOOKING THE VILLA TO THE END OF THE HOLIDAY EVERYTHING WAS HANDLED VERY WELL.
GREAT INFORMATION FROM OWNER WITH EASY EMAIL CONTACT DETAILS.
VILLA WAS EXCELLENT AND ALAN LOOKED AFTER US VERY WELL NOTHING WAS TO MUCH TROUBLE AT ALL 24 HOURS A DAY !!
WE HIRED A CAR TO TRAVEL MORE AROUND THE AREA AND WOULD SAY TO ANYBODY GOING IF THEY WISH TO SEE MORE OF THE AREA THEN A CAR IS A MUST.
EASY TO GET TO FROM AIRPORT WITH VERY EASY TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS AND PICTURES FROM THE OWNER.
WOULD LIKE TO GO AGAIN NEXT YEAR.
Tom thank you for taking the time to submit a review and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. There is so much more to explore in the area and as you say a car would be ideal.

Review submitted by Peter from Corsham, Wilts (Submitted: 20 Sep 2009)
The villa was extremely well equipped and provided first class, comfortable accommodation for my party of six adults. It more than lived up to its rather modest description. We would have no hesitation in recommending the villa to anyone wanting an economical, stress free relaxing holiday.
We spent a most enjoyable week relaxing and dividing our time between the pool and the nearby beach.
Thanks to Alan and Rhoda for the warm welcome and making themselves available during the stay and to Grant for providing fool proof directions to the villa.
Peter, thanks for your review and it was a pleasure having you stay. Ill pass on you thanks to Alan and Rhoda for looking after you.

An excellent and comfortable villa and a brilliant time had by all, wished we could have stayed longer. Located well to get to all the places we wanted to go to including a lovely boat trip from Santa Pola to Tarbarca Island.
Review submitted by Peter from Peterborough (Submitted: 6 Aug 2009)
An excellent villa.
We were very well looked after by Alan and Rhoda. We could not fault the villa in any way.
Restaurants and shops were within walkiing distance but a car would be needed to reach the coast and to visit yet more restaurants.
Review submitted by sharon from madley (Submitted: 20 Jul 2009)
The villa was lovely and far exceeded our expectations. The photos on the website dont do it justice. It was clean and very well equipped. The outside space was excellent and well maintained.
We would and have recommended it to friends, particularly as a good for value break in fantastic accommodation.
Alan was great and gave us lots of information and offered his services throughout our stay.

Fab villa, fab pool, fab holiday! Thanks to gran t for his patience with all my questions and for letting us rent his gorgeous villa. We had a most relaxing time and the kids loved the pool and the dvds supplied for when the sun was too hot and they stayed indoors!
Thanks also to Alan and Rhoda who take care of you when you get there - made us very welcome, couldnt be more helpful and helped us relax more knowing we could contact them if anything went wrong.
Review submitted by Jacqueline from Trowbridge (Submitted: 28 May 2009)
The villa is well equipped and has everything you need for a family holiday. Facilities are close by and the villa is in a nice quiet residential area. The swimming pool is a fantastic asset even though the sea is a 10 min drive away. I would defiantly recommend this to family and friends. A fantastic holiday.

Review submitted by Lynn from Cumbernauld (Submitted: 28 Sep 2008)
We enjoyed a great week in the Lemon Tree Villa, the weather was great, the villa was excellent and the pool was fantastic!! The pictures on the website do not do the villa justice. There were 4 adults and 2 children and we all enjoyed a very chilled out week. We unfortunately did not rent a car and would highly recommend this so you can enjoy the surrounding towns, there were plenty of places to eat in the near vicinity, but for shops / nightlife you would need to travel further. There are supermarkets near by which have everything you need for villa life, the barbeque was enjoyed in a lazy day/night spent at the villa!!
I would recommend the Lemon Tree Villa to anyone, especially if you are looking for a chilled out holiday as this villa has all you need :)

The villa was the perfect place to relax, we spent a few days at the villa as we had to drag the kids out of the pool. Aqualandia was a fantastic day out and we all tried 'go karting' just down the road which was a big hit. We will recommend to all our friends.

Everyone has said it already 'your villa is lovely' we fly back tomorrow with a bad case of 'villa envy'. Alicante is great by the marina and the local restaurants superb. We would love to return soon.

We depart for home today after seven delightful days at Lemon Tree Villa. The villa is marvellous in a lovely setting, quiet and relaxing. The pool is a great asset and the French Restaurant is something else.

Debbie/Will Butler 4/7/07 – 12/7/07 from Gloucester
Thank you to Alan and Rhoda for a very clean villa. Had a fantastic relaxing time and the pool is great. For a day out I would recommend Terra Mitica Theme Park up by Benidorm (45 min drive). Great restaurants in the area.
Darren/Louis Fisher 19/6/07 – 3/7/07 from Credenhill
Amazing villa with great attention to detail which meant we had a stress free family holiday. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool every day. I can recommend Elche for a day out with younger children (take swim kit for the pool rides). The Pasty Shack was great for a lunch time bite and the Italian was superb.
Geordie/Shirley Knox 6/6/07 – 13/6/07
Thanks for letting us stay in your villa, what a lovely place. On arrival greeted by Alan & Rhoda who had the villa prepared to perfection. Ideal place to chill and recharge batteries. Pool superb and really clean. Very good choice of restaurants all within walking distance. Would love to return in the near future, will diffidently be recommending this to everyone we know.
Shaun/Jess Philips 25/8/06 – 8/9/06 from Hereford
This is by far the best family holiday we have had. The villa is lovely and has everything we could ask for. We didn’t do any day trips. No need to go as the pool was more than enough for the kids. They did however go Go-Karting near LIDL which was great fun. Highly recommend 2 restaurants the Bistro near Harleys and the Italian (La Faniglia) a few doors down from O’Neil’s. We loved it here and would love to come back.
