- Very Good
“Lovely place but we personally did need a car.”
We were delayed due to fog, so not a good start to the holiday, host kept in touch and picked us up from the airport. We were however not aware of the 40 euro charge. Villa was very cold and damp when we arrived due to a month of rain, would suggest the heating is put on before quests arrive. Great accommodation though and had a very relaxing stay. Hosts were without fault.
Owner's reply: Thank you so very much for your lovely review with helpful suggestions and are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay here in El Faro. It has been some time since you visited and last year we actually installed full hot air heating throughout the villa just incase we are ever unfortunate enough to suffer such unusually inclement weather in Spain in December ever again!
Stayed here for a week with my 3 girls (2 teenagers and a toddler) we all had a brilliant time, really relaxing, apartment clean and had everything you could need, plenty of through breeze we didn't need to put the air con on very often. Bev and Dave were a phone call away for any and all queries and nothing was too much trouble for them.... unless I called them we didn't have sight nor sound of them, which left us to enjoy our holiday uninterrupted, the area is nice, the beach a few minutes walk and easily reachable with a toddler, few places to eat... Dona Maria being the best we found, 3 steaks, hamburger and 6 drinks came to around £46 which is reasonable and was delicious, the sea food dishes that came out to the next table after we ordered looked amazing and we got a little food envy, but will know better for next time... getting about is easy there is a taxi rank close by and will cost under 10 Euros to get to Fuengirola. I have to admit that the dog that I kept seeing mentioned in other reviews concerned me slightly before I arrived, but once I met him my concerns disappeared... for a couple of reasons, I was concerned as I have a small child with me and no matter how friendly a dog is reported to be (and he is very friendly) little ones can be grabby and you never know how an animal will react..... I needn't of worried about this as my daughter was never in contact with him, he couldn't get into our apartment or terrace area uninvited and was behind a gate in his own area..... All in all we had a brilliant holiday and we will be back..
“Not the standard we have come to expect”
We originally booked for 10 nights however, one was enough. The apartment is rather dark with a small kitchen, it does have a large terrace overlooking a dry river bed. The TV screen is actually smaller than my computer screen, with little choice of channels, because the free satellite has moved. The air conditioning is programmed to stay on for one hour, after which you have to reset it. It seems the dog is not as friendly as suggested in previous reviews, we were advised to keep the gates and doors closed. The amount of keys were a little concerning as we were advised to double lock the gate at the top of some very steep steps when coming and going. We therefore, informed the owners that we needed to go back home, in order not to cause embarrassment or an altracation. For an additional 20 Euro a night we rented a 3 bedroom apartment directly overlooking the Med at Dona Lola, just up the road, with full satellite coverage on a 48 inch flat screen TV and with some excellent Restaraunt's right on the doorstep, indoor and outdoor pools, gym and sauna, plus full air con and hot water. We would advise it best to look at the Caribsol website, as you will get far more for the little extra you will pay.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review but we are sorry to now learn the reason for your most unexpected departure. We very much take the views of our guests seriously and would like to assure you of our intention to ensure that all of our visitors enjoy a happy and memorable holiday in our typically Spanish private villa. We will definitely give your comments consideration and at the time would have done our utmost to reassure you about the lock on the entrance door to our villa from the road, the need for a swimming pool safety gate and would have suggested that you could perhaps meet to our most friendly dog, to resolve any tenuous concerns that you had to the best of our ability, had we realised how you felt.
“Traditional Spanish property with fabulous terrace”
A very relaxing holiday. Large terrace which gets the sun all day but with ample shaded areas to sit and have a G&T, plenty of space to relax in the sun on the sun loungers, or have a dip in the private pool. Just a quick walk down to the local beach which has all amenities needed, and the local 'strip' with a choice of restaurants and bars but not too busy. Bigger towns of La Cala one way or Fuengirola the other are about 2 miles. Air conditioning was very welcome as was the good internet connection. Hosts Bev & Dave were available if needed but were never intrusive always happy to help. I would definitely book again.
