Mahon boasts an impressive harbour with an array of cafe's and restaurants.

Although the island boasts many attractions beauty and tranquillity are it's characteristic attributes.

"Amazing Villa- perfect resort!"

We stayed here for two weeks with our 3 year old, 7 month year old and parents (66&76) The villa is perfect in every way! It's immaculate, spacious and well maintained. It's perfect for families and has everything you need for kids and babies. The pool is great, a very good size and it gets cleaned twice per week by a lovely guy called Lee. Adele was so helpful from the minute we booked her Villa and provided us with all the information we needed to know about the Villa and the resort. Calan Porter is a great resort and has everything you need to keep you entertained for two weeks. The villa is literally a few minute walk to the Main Street, where half way down you come across a great play area for kids with bouncy castles/trampolines etc and a bar! There's then enough bars and restaurants to keep you entertained (the tapas Casa Tia was our favourite) and then we often ended the night in Sa Paissa hotel bar, where they had outside entertainment every night (temptations, Abba, etc) It was really good and a fab atmosphere. The beach is amazing but is down about 145 steps although the walk down hill to it was fine and about 10 minutes from the villa. We just got a taxi back (7 euros) as it would very difficult to walk back with children and grandparents! Overall we could not recommend this villa and resort more highly. A perfect holiday!

So glad that you all enjoyed your stay with us and found Villa to exceed your expectations. Also pleased that have made the most of our lovely resort. The bouncy castles/trampolines etc and bar! is a great place for the little one's we would love to have welcome you back to stay with again soon.

"Owners did everything possible to make our stay excellent"

From first booking the villa, Adele was extremely helpful with a great knowledge of the resort. The villa is exactly as it appears in the photographs. It is well maintained, clean and well equiped. When we arrived at the villa at approx. 9.30am, with the intention of leaving our cases as the rental didn't commence until later in the day. However, there were a team of four ladies cleaning the villa and they were finished ready for us to enter the property by 10am which was unexpected but brilliant.. We are definitely going to recommend the villa to family, friends and colleagues.

Thank you for your review glad you enjoyed your stay and that the Villa met your expectations. We have a great management company who work closely with us helping to look after you at our Villas once you arrive and of course if we can get your Villa ready for on an early arrival then we do so. Hope you will come and stay again soon. Thank you Adele & Don Greenhalgh

"Absolutely fantastic"

This villa is beautiful. We were very nervous about going abroad for the first time with our 2 children, but this was all we expected and more. Adele is so helpful with everything and the villa really is like home from home. We search for hours and hours for a villa and we were begining to think we were being too fussy, wanting a fab pool, and near the airport so we didnt have a long transfer, and near the beach and resturants but nice and quiet........then we found Villa Rioja.

The boys LOVED the pool, and there were lots of inflatables for us all to play on. When i got a bit hot for them mid-afternoon they could go inside and watch some CBEEBIES or play a board game under the parasol and i could stay out and read my book. If you was in a hotel you would have to go in with them everytime they needed the loo. It made it so much more relaxing. The Villa is wonderful, clean, tidy and everything you need.

We had a BBQ a few nights, ate out some other nights and made a spag bol, pizza and chips the other 2 nights, the kitchen has everything you need and the supermarket just 5 minutes away is well stocked. The boys just stayed in the pool till late, then we ate tea outside. The roof top terrace is lovely, you can watch the sunset with a glass of wine, it is very private.

The beach is lovely, and the water is shallow very far out, so very safe for children. There is a play area open at night that has a bar, so it is nice to have a drink and the kids can play on the bouncy thingy and ride go-carts.

We also caught the bus in to Mahon one day, which has a lovely harbour, we enjoyed looking at all the boats and had lunch there and a very big ice-cream.

This truly is a wonderful holiday, totally relaxing, which we were worried about with the children, but because it is totally safe, and a locked gate and there is only you, you arent worried about them getting lost etc. It really is like being at home, in your back garden, with the sun and a pool.......and no jobs to do! I can not recommend it enough. The boys actually cried the morning we left.

Thank you Adele and Don for sharing this wonderful place with us

Well what can I say thank you so much for your very kind words and review about our lovely Villa Rioja. Also of our resort Calan Porter which we think is a lovely little village and has everything for a perfect family holiday. It makes so proud when we get such great reviews and it makes all our efforts and hard work worth while. I do hope you will visit us again soon once again thank you

From our first enquiry about the villa to our return home Adele has been most helpful, the info pack sent before we left about who to use to book a taxi to & from the airport, to the street map outlining the best places to eat was so useful and a great help. The villa was fantastic, clean, tidy, airy and had everything you would need to make your stay enjoyable, the kids found the dvd's and the toy box which was invaluable after they had been dragged kicking from the pool. The outside area was also clean and well maintained, the pool and inflatables were a great success. Overall we could not find anything to fault the villa or surrounding area, we would most definatly be back again, thankyou for making it a pleasurable stay.

Thank you so much for such a lovely positive review, pleased you found all the info help full, sometime I think I send to much! but just goes to show you can never have enough. Great that you made use of the toys and games for the children and glad that you may visit us again at Villa Rioja, we will look forward to welcoming you back hopefully soon.

Thank you

"Super Villa, everything you could ask for, Great Location"

We stayed with a 3 month year old and a 2.5 year old. The villa was excellent and we had a great time. My little boy was constantly in the pool (loads of pool inflatables at the villa too, also loads of board games, toy box, books, PS2, CBBIES etc which was invaluable) and also the play centre down the road, to the point we had to do detours to prevent melt downs. We got onto the roof terrace once for a quick glass of cava and watched the sun set! We had many BBQ teas on the lovely BBQ by the pool, the shops are not far away easily walkable. The beach is really close by, down some steps - the water is very clear and quite warm once you are in.

If you are leaving on a Friday and your flight is later in the day, an option (which we did) was to take a day room at the Hotel Azul and it was excellent. It only cost 40 euros in the end - the food there was great - plus beer and wine on tap as much as you can drink as part of the meal price (20 euro for the family - though couldn't take use of the all you can drink element - dam...!).

All in all would totally recommend the Villa Rioja and Adele as a hostess - who was very helpful with advice and made our stay very enjoyable and easy.

Thank you for your wonderful review and so glad you had a great time. Great to know you made use of everything we have provided, as that what it all there for hope you come back to visit us again soon.

"Wonderful Villa holiday - for the 3rd time!!"

It's always a pleasure booking our holiday villa with Red Wine Villas - the service is great, very efficient and the information Adele provides about the resort is spot on! The villa itself suited our needs down to the ground. We have small children and everything is so convenient which takes the stress out of our precious holiday. The villa is quiet, private and safe. There is plenty to keep the kids amused whilst they have a rest from the sun - the toy box and games always go down a treat! This was our 3rd visit to Cala en Porter but the first time we've gone in season - the bars and restaurants are all very family friendly and the shows at Sai Passa were brilliant. The beach is beautiful and safe for the children because you can walk out really far in the sea without it getting too deep. All in all a fab holiday - great weather, great villa - great family time :)

Once again thank you for your review of our lovely Villa and glad you finally made a visit to Villa Rioja in the main season and enjoyed it. Early and late season I think you can be spoiled with the peace and tranquillity the resort offers. Not that it is ever over crowed anyway, glad the children made use of the toy boxes and you enjoy the entertainment that our resort offers hope you will return again soon
