We spent a week in this fabulous villa the views from the patio area are fantastic
We spent a lot of our time sat by the pool which was very clean and warm enough for us to take a dip.
The villa is very well equipped and the owners have gone to a lot of trouble to ensure you have everything you need.
I particularly liked the bedroom with a balcony looking out to sea it was very comfortable and relaxing.
We ate in on a number of occasions and visited local restaurants in Puerto Mogan and Amadores both have fantastic bars and the beaches are also good.
I was also able to run around 10 miles from the villa to Amadores and back
All in all a very good holiday and a very enjoyable villa definitely recommend it

"Fabulous family holiday"
We stayed at this lovely villa with our 2 daughters aged 4 and 8 and had a wonderful holiday. The children loved having their own swimming pool and we're playing in it within a few minutes of arriving at the villa. They also had fun going down the waterside at the main pool on the complex and made some new Spanish and English friends.
The villa was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Jim and Ruth gave us lots of information about the area both before we travelled and at the villa and we used this to plan days out at Puerto Mogan and Palmitos Park. The children loved the dolphin show and had photos taken with them.
There were lots of good restaurants nearby. We ate at the one on the complex one evening which is right next to another swimming pool and the children loved being able to swim in it whilst we waited for our meal. The food was delicious and very cheap and I would recommend trying it.
We also liked eating at Amadores beach which has lots of good restaurants right by the beach. Palm Beach at the end had a lovely atmosphere and the Chinese buffet restaurant let the children try different foods that they wouldn't normally eat. On Jim's recommendation, we had gin and tonics at Amadores Beach Club and I agree with him that they are the best.
We've already recommended the villa to our friends and family and hope to come back again ourselves for another holiday.

"Fantastic villa with wonderful views."
We stayed at the villa from the 17th to 27th June 2013 and had an excellent holiday. We were a family of four - two adults and young children aged 3 and 7. The villa is located on a complex which is built into the side of a mountain. The complex consists mainly of apartments and just a few villas. An advantage of this arrangement was that we had the benefit of having our own pool, good sized accommodation and privacy yet we could use the complex facilities as well .My children loved the "top pool" which offered a very long yet gentle water slide and a small play area. A little cafe/bar next to this pool provided drinks and snacks.
We hired a car throughout our vacation which whilst not completely necessary proved to be worthwhile, purely for exploring the island and enjoying a few evenings outside of Playa del Cura.
The villa is very well equipped with everything a family or group of adults would need. After parking near the reception area at street level, the villa is reached by taking two lifts and then walking along a pathway. All of this is "pushchair friendly". Upon entering the villa, there is a double bedroom, bathroom and terrace with really spectacular views, a staircase then leads down to two further bedrooms, both with good wardrobe space, a living area, kitchen and utility area. the main terrace can be entered from the living area or dressing area of the downstairs bedroom. My husband and I felt that this villa had the best location of all the villas on the complex, not just because of the views but because it had a large flat rock garden beyond the terrace. Not only did this provide safety with children but it had a beautiful display of Canarian plants and ornaments. My children were fascinated by watching the lizards which occupied this rock garden. Please note, they are very shy and no trouble at all!
Playa del Cura itself is a small quiet resort with a couple of restaurants and a large Spar supermarket which we felt was reasonably priced and well stocked with all your needs. However, do take sun protection with you as this tends to be very expensive to buy there. The beach at Playa del Cura is perfect for everyone.
We took an impulsive two hour drive up into the centre of the island and saw beautiful white washed villages, pine forests and fabulous views across mountains and lakes. It was a little nerve racking on the small winding roads but well worth it.
A couple called Pam and Jeff generally look after the villa with respect to a weekly pool cleaning and linen/towel changing service, They are very helpful and in fact live on the complex which is an advantage.
It is well worth visiting Puerto de Mogan which is only a ten minute drive away. Amadores, which can be seen from the villa offers a lovely beach and reasonably priced restaurants.
We really enjoyed our stay at the villa and found its location beneficial.

"Fantastic holiday in a fantastic villa"
We have just returned from our second stay in this fabulous villa and have had another great holiday. Everything we could have wanted was provided within the villa, the owners have really gone the extra mile. Travelling with 2 children we found the dishwasher and washing machine very useful as well as the highchair and travel cot. We used the villa swimming pool daily but also tried the other swimming pools on site, one of which has a great water slide. The villa is well placed for exploring the island, should you wish to do so. We had a great day out at Plamitos Park and the highlight of this was most definitely the dolphin show. I would highly recommend this villa, we are already looking to book again.

"Fantastic villa, fantastic views, fantastic holiday!"
We are a family of 4 and have just returned from a fantastic holiday in this Villa.
As a family this villa really suited our needs there was plenty of living and bedroom space and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed such as microwave, dishwasher, large fridge and even a washing machine. My eldest daughter loved using the villa swimming pool and watching the DVD's provided when she needed a break from the sun. There was a travel cot and high chair provided which was useful for my youngest daughter. Everything was clean and in good condition.
There is a restaurant on site which we used for take away pizza one night and they were very tasty and reasonably priced. There are also a number of larger pools on site, one of which has a water slide which kept my daughter entertained for ages. There is also a small bar, shop and play area on site. A short walk away is a sandy beach which is ideal for families and also more restaurants and a larger supermarket where you can buy pretty much anything you would need.
Whilst there we took a taxi to Amadores beach which offers crazy golf, restaurants, shops and play area. We also the bus to Mogan which has a small harbour, beach, restaurants. There are plenty of things to do.
Last but by no means least is the fantastic view offered at this villa. It really is stunning and we spent many a relaxing evening outside with a glass of sangria admiring it!!
To summarise we have had one of the best holidays here as a family and would certainly return in the future. Thank you.
