“Mrs” We were in a party of 4 adults who enjoyed a lovely stay 7 night at this well equipped, wonderfully presented villa in a location that we favour (Faro Park) and have visited many times. All communications with the owner were friendly, prompt and clear. The villa was immaculately clean on arrival, there is lots of outside space including terraces for the two upstairs double bedrooms. Some areas have views down to the sea and the pool is stunning and a very good size. The SMART TV means you can access Netflix in addition to the UK channels, should you wish. The restaurants and mini markets of Faro Park are under 10 minutes level walk away and the seafront path can be reached in around 10 minutes also. The beds were very comfortable as were the sunloungers and rattan furniture. There are no handrails for pool access (as the photos clearly illustrate) and some of the steps of the spiral staircase are a slightly narrow in places so anyone with mobility issues would need to bear this in mind. (There is of course a downstairs twin bedroom).
We had a brilliant time at La Casa Blanca - thank you Bev and family!
“So good I want to go back” Pauline was a pleasure to deal with from my very first enquiry, answering every query and request promptly.
The villa is exactly as described on this site. Everything was ready when we (myself, husband and 19 year old son) arrived and the villa and pool were spotlessly clean.
Unlike other similar villas that we have previously stayed in, Villa Rosa has an indoor dining table and chairs and heating in the lounge which helped take the chill off the slightly cool January evenings. We ate out in the local restaurants half the time, the rest of the time we cooked in the villa. Plenty of pots, pans, cutlery, crockery etc. Also a great selection of herbs/spices/condiments etc to use. Overall Villa Rosa is very well equipped.
The beds were clean and comfy with plenty of pillows. Towels were all provided and were still nice and fluffy.
We were there in January and had requested the pool heating which made it lovely and warm. We swam in it every day. We didn't use the large outdoor unheated one beside the villa but I'm sure in the summer it would be great. We experienced some very wintery winds while we were there, but there was always plenty of space in the garden/pool area to find a sheltered sunny corner to sit and relax and soak in the heat.
Villa Rosa is situated in a nice quiet and well maintained residential area only a few minutes walk to two shops and a number of restaurants. We had hired a car from AutoReisin so travelled a bit around the island. Found the best place for doing a big shop was Lidl in Puerto del Carmen (especially for meat & veg). Everything else we got in the local shop.
I loved this villa and would definitely book it again.
“Blissful peace!” Beautiful villa. Everything as stated on website. Lots of room. Very quiet area. Car advisable but not essential as there is a small shopping area with two supermarkets, two restaurants, a breakfast bar and a pub within walking distance and there is a bus service available to Playa Blanca centre. Just loved it, especially the sea view walk. Will definitely go again.
“Homesick and it was holiday!!!” Well what can we say....from the very start of our holiday until our goodbyes the hospitality of Mike and Ann was first class. We felt so looked after which was more than welcomed on our first visit to the island. Little touches such as the bubbly reception on arrival personalised bottle of wine and personalised cd made us feel very relaxed and special. We booked the villa directly the contact and information provided was second to none and we had to change our date to which Mike and Ann could not have been more accomodating which was a great relief, most certainly wouldnt get this from a travel agent!!
We would go back if only to visit Mike and Ann!
The villa itself is fantastic infact we didn't want to leave. Very spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean we called it our home from home. The pool was great and more than welcomed on those hot days and the jacuzzi was a firm favourite especially for myself who arrived on crutches anyone going with aches and pains book this villa and get in the jacuzzi!
The villa is conveniently positioned just a 5 min stroll to the local shops where you will find 2 supermarkets, a lovely bakery which does a great breakfast and patissieris, an italian, the port of call restaurant and our fave was The Lighthouse were they do a sunday carvery which is highly recommended however also popular so pre book your table! The fillet steak best wev'e had for a long time.
Also at the end of the shops is the bus stop where you can catch the number 30 Playa Blanca and get into town for 1 euro 30cents. Excellent service the bus runs evey half hour 20 past and 10 to and always bang on time. The journey itself takes about 10 min. The town of Playa blanca has all you could need from supermarkets to the usual holidays souvenirs. At the promenade which is well worth a walk there are some great restaurants all the way along and different beaches. If you enjoy indian there is Fazz'z and afterwards enjoy the Manea Bar underneath where you can relax on the sofas, beds and enjoy some great cocktails overlooking the sea well worth a night out here!
I can't really say there is anything we liked least. The whole resort was great. The view in the villa from the balcony off the master bedroom was favourtite of mine at night. So quiet, great to sit with a drink and listen to the sea, watch the lighthouse and we even saw some shooting stars.
We had a Fantastic holiday and would have no hesitation in returning I just hope we will be able to get booked after this review.
Located on the west end of Playa Blanca, Faro Park offers everything you could need for a relaxing beach holiday. Within walking distance of the rest of Playa Blanca, there’s plenty to see and do here. Book your next holiday rental in Faro Park and come see for yourself.

Luxury 3 bedroom villa, 10mtr pool & sea view
Fabulous 5 star living
Spent a wonderful week here in September, the photos just do not do it justice as its an amazing villa with all the luxuries you could wish for. From the games room for the kids to unbelievable outside space around the pool, a roof terrace to die for, comfortable beds for a great nights sleep and most importantly really quiet but close to all amenities you need (restaurants, bakery, supermarket etc)
We took the bus many times into Playa which goes every 30 mins from just around the corner, but taxi is only around 6 euros, or you can walk along the sea front into the town or up to the marine the other end of Playa, a lovely walk, very scenic past many bars, restaurants and sandy bays that are great for snorkelling.
It is apparent that this villa has been well thought out and designed as you could wish for nothing more, we just wish we didn't have to come home. …
Can't rate this villa highly enough! We are regular visitors to faro park and this villa is most definitely one of our favourite! Perfect for families as the pool is separated off which was really useful with a toddler being part of our group. Kathy and Brian were always very quick to respond to any of our queries and very helpful with any extras we needed. Will be recommending the villa to family and friends for sure! …
Villa Esperanza - Luxury villa with heated private pool and free wifi
We spent a fantastic week at Villa Esperanza and found it to be a lovely place for a family holiday. The villa itself is so well appointed and comfortable, the pool is heated to a lovely temperature and the pool area and terrace get the sun all day long. The beds are very comfortable, there is plenty of storage and all the little extras are much appreciated - plenty of coat hangers, all the kitchen utensils you could need, some basic food supplies in the cupboards and also lots of DVDs and board games for when you need to get out of the sun for a little while. We had a car for the week and would say this is required, it was a very short drive to Flamingo Beach which is a beautiful sandy family beach nearby. There are a few restaurants within walking distance at Faro Park but the car meant we could go slightly further, would suggest driving to Marina Rubicon where there are some lovely places to eat. Highly recommend! …
Faro Park luxury villa/private pool, Aug 25 week offer £499, wifi, english tv.
Another great holiday at Villa Rosa!
This was our 5th visit to Villa Rosa and another great holiday had by all! The villa is well equipped, great location to town, local amenities and nearby beach. The pool was amazing, especially after a warm day out. We have already booked again for next year! Pauline is available to answer any queries. Also the housekeeper and pool man have contact numbers if any problems. …
Villa Del Dos Hijos

Great Villa with Hot tun and Heated pool very close to 2 minutes to local facilities and bus stop to resort centre.
Very good villa with everything as described, heated pool was a very comfortable temperature and hot tub was great. The owner Clair was great and so were Ann and Mike who look after the villa. The pool and hot tub were regularly checked and cleaned. We are a regular for using Villa Holidays and Would recommend this villa again and ranks with the very best (and more expensive) villas we have stayed in.
