“Lovely villa in ideal location” Recently stayed in this villa with 3 year old, 9 month old and 3 other adults. Villa was clean, comfortable, spacious and above all very secure. All essential equipment was provided along with some extras. It was ideally located close to supermarket, beaches, restaurants/bars, medical centres etc. Although closest beach was only a few minutes walk away we spent most of our time in the pool - kids and adults loved it. We fully intend to return again.
“Home from home” Love staying at this apartment , everything you need in kitchen and nice comfy beds ,we had a hire car but its no problem getting a taxi back up the hill wont hesitate to recommend this to other guests
“Very good but!” The bungalow by Cala Gran in Cala D'or is in a lovely complex and an ideally located close to the town. The bungalow is as close to the beach as you can get which can be good or bad depending on what you want. The bungalows are close together without being invasive which is perfect. Although there are plenty of steps down from the road and up from the beach. The apartment itself is nicely finished, although certainly not as pristine as the photos suggest and the bathrooms could do with updating. The facilities cover the basics, just about and not much else. Don't expect a welcome pack or a mid week laundry service or a dvd collection or anything but you have everything you need. Just! You're paying handsomely for the location and that's it but it is a pretty impressive location. The swimming pool within the complex is an added bonus but the location is key, close to town and beach. Perfect!
The only reason for the very good rating is the mealy mouthed provisions in the apartment, that could have tipped it into the excellent bracket but it was certainly disappointing.
Would I go back..yes. Is it a good location..yes. Was it worth the money..maybe. Was the €100 plus booking fee justified..no!
“Fantastic apartment” We have just come back from our fifth visit to Mick and Sue's apartment, so that speaks for itself. Everything is so local, shops buses English shop bottom of the road. Two big supermarkets both in waliking distance Plenty of places to eat.There is everything in the apartment which you need. Weather was fantastic. Our favourite place to eat is El Gusto, but you need to book because its so popular.Thanks again for letting us stop.

“Family vacation” The villa was huge and was perfect for 13 members of my family , the pool was great and regularly cleaned , would recommend a car but the bars and restaurants are within a 10 minute walk . All round great family holiday .
“For a large family break this was a perfect villa” Fantastic villa. Looked great in the pictures but looked even better in reality. Beautifully decorated and so many areas to sit in the sun. There was 11 of us including a baby and 4 children. They would have spent everyday in the amazing swimming pool if they could. The barbecue area is fantastic and after a quick trip to the large lidl supermarket we had plenty of supplies to put on the barbecue. All bedrooms were beautiful and complete with ensuites so no queue for showers! Beautiful view from villa and as there is a large table outside you can dine throughout the day in the sunshine. Plenty of sun loungers to go round as well. A stone throw from the villa is a bus stop and for approx 2 euro per person u can travel easily to Las Americas or anywhere around the island. Taxis also easily accessible. The local town is a 15 min walk and has plenty of restaurants and bars and a small beach that are not to crowed. Overall would recommend this villa to anyone. The owners were very helpful and stayed in contact throughout. Hopefully we will be back!
“Superb !!” We Stayed in this apartment for one week in April 2013. We have stayed in benalmedena a few times before but mainly on the coast and not up beside Arroyo. But we were pleasantly surprised with the plenty of good quality bars and restaurant's in the area. Before we had even arrived at the apartment the attention to detail was outstanding. The owners emailed us frequently prior to going with every bit of information and advice possible. We were met at the apartment buy the "meet and greet"guy as arranged who explained everything about the apartment. We also received a welcome pack of bread ,milk ,water,butter etc until we got a chance to go to the supermarket.
The apartment itself was immaculate. Everything there that you could possibly need .It felt like home from home almost immediately .We would definitely go back and I would recommend it to anyone.

“Excellent Villa!” 2nd year in a row here. Once again everything was perfect. Villa is approx 10 mins by car/taxi from airport. You can literally be in the pool within an hour of landing. Taxi from airport cheap and there is a local bus service available too.
Check in very easy. Agents live in next property. Checked in very quickly but given tour round to show you how to work everything etc. There is also a guide left with instructions for tv, cooker as well as local info - very helpful
Villa is well equipped, kitchen has everything you need and rooms are all clean and tidy, Great showers with plenty hotwater,
Washing maching, iron, microwave, dvd player, tv and even plenty books and dvds for your use.
Lovely terraces for sitting out sunbathing and enjoying lunch in peace and quiet. Great pool facilities and turkish bath sauna, jacuzzi and gym for your use throughout your stay. Toilets and showeres also available at the pool/spa area.
Property is about 10 minutes stroll down hill to the town centre and beach areas. Although there is bars and shops half way down. The market also comes here on Saturdays.
The taxi fare from town is approx 2.15 euros daytime and 2.8 euros at night. 6 seater taxis readily available for same price.
Plenty of bars and restaurants for all tastes in town. We thought it was very reasonable for beers and food.
If you want to travel further afield there is a great bus service on the island to allow you to visit Corralejo and Puerto del Rosario. Bus stop at bottom of the hill (approx 5 mins walk) and fares very cheap.
This makes water park and Safari Park great accesible days out.
We travelled with 4 teenage boys, who were kept entertained on beaches etc and as the town is reasonablly quiet they were able to get some freedom on beaches/ playing pool at night etc
Would recommend both the island and in particular this property to anyone. And we will certainly be back for our third visit next year
“What a super villa” Spent 10 wonderful days at this villa with daughter,son-in-law,13 year old and 3 year old grandsons,superb villa and fantastic pool....even though the waterfall was not working at that time,reported this and agents came out straight away.good surroundings ie beaches,shops and various eateries,great supermarket opposite villa.Villa had everything you would need..."home from home",only negative would be the fact that there isnt any air con! The fans really arn't man enough in August!!!!but apart from that we all love love loved it and didn't want to leave,wall to wall sunshine and hot, hot,hot.would return tomorrow if possible.
“lovely Apartment” Just got back from a fantastic holiday at this apartment with my 2 girls..couldnt recommend it enough..the apartment is very roomy and spotlessly clean and like a home from home..will be visiting again next summer
“Great Apartment, Extremely Helpful and Organised Owner” Very impressed with the apartment which was in a good location, clean and well-equipped. Great to have wifi and a TV with English channels as we were in in the evenings because we were travelling with my young daughter.
We had been worried that the pool would be cold, but it was in fact pleasantly warm. It is easy to walk to the sandy beaches - you have a choice and hit them whether you go right or left. The beach immediately behind the apartments is a stone beach and where all the surfers go - great to watch (especially sitting in one of the restaurants right next to the apartment with a Sangria to sip on!)
The booking process was very easy and Richard, the owner, is wonderfully helpful and organised. He gave us lots of information before we went, and was extremely quick to respond to any queries we had. On arrival we found that we couldn't open the patio doors because they had been jammed by the previous tenants; Richard ensured that this was rectified very swiftly, was great at communicating with us and very apologetic.
As Richard knew that we were staying in for dinner on a couple of the evenings he recommended an Indian restaurant/takeaway across the road in the City Centre shopping centre. We very much enjoyed the food and the owner, Patwal, was very friendly.
“Perfect family break” Superb. Great location, only 40 minutes from the airport and close to local beaches and restaurants. The appartment itself was great for a family, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Fully equipped kitchen and and dining area. Very clean.
Lovely patio and outdoor pools and jacuzzi just downstairs.
“A nice apartment in a great position.” Everything was as described and Philip and Kimberley couldn't have done more.
We received a message on the day before arrival to confirm arrangements.
We phoned from the airport and met Kimberley at the apartment which was spotlessly clean, bright, spacious and well equipped. It's balcony had a sea view and it's location was perfect.
We had English TV and fantastic Wi-Fi.
This is unquestionably worth a 5 star review.
“Lovely, clean, quiet, good value apartment!” Just arrived back from a week at this apartment and cannot recommend this enough.
It was a lovely, clean, spacious apartment with all the things you need.
We have a 3yr old and it was perfect for us, on the ground floor, had little touches like a bucket and spade and a little step-up which enabled our little boy to use the bathroom with ease. Having a washing machine was a godsend! He loved the pool, but be aware there is no shallow/ toddler area in the pool. Also able to watch his DVD's just before bed to wind down.
It was very quiet and relaxing with no loud music pumping out late at night! Not the type of place you would go if your looking for buzzing nightlife but that suited us fine as our boy was able to go bed at a reasonable time and we enjoyed a quiet drink on the patio.
Yes you need a car to get to the main part of town, but it's a 5 minute drive and everything you need is there.
Mariann who looks after the apartment was so kind and very helpful.
If your looking for a quiet holiday in a lovely apartment which is good value for money, especially for families with young children, look no further than this little gem.
Something about Spain gets under your skin. The endless miles of sandy beach, array of vibrant cities, and appetising plates of tapas may have something to do with it. You only have to look at how many holidaymakers just can’t stay away to wonder what you’re missing.
The Costa del Sol (or Sunshine Coast in English) is a world-famous stretch of sand kissed by sunshine all summer long. But the sun-drenched destinations don’t end there: the Costa Dorada and the enchantingly named Orange Blossom Coast (Costa Azahar) are all blessed with beaches where you can bask in the warm Mediterranean sun.
Packed with wonders like the Sagrada Familia and Europe’s best-preserved Gothic quarter, Barcelona impresses all year round. Its iconic boulevard, Las Ramblas, is an excellent attraction, as are the Gaudi buildings and the Magic Fountain in the city’s Montjuic quarter.
Spain’s many islands are adored by party-goers, notably the nightlife hub of Ibiza where you can dance from sundown to sunrise. But should all that sound like too much excitement, it’s easy to find a secluded escape. Private villas are dotted around the Balearics, including Mallorca, Menorca and the smallest island, Formentera.

Villa Papaz in Conil, spacious with stunning views
Unique, stunning well placed Villa
This was our 7th Visit to Lanzarote. We always stay in Playa Blanca but thought it was time to try something different. Villa Papaz is certainly that!
The villa is so unique and very special. The views were amazing. There are so many different levels and areas to enjoy, whatever your mood. It is in a great position to explore the island. We all thoroughly recommend it. We hope to return again one day. Thanks also to the Owners and management team for a smooth booking process etc... reassuring when booking a Villa can seem daunting to some people. …

Mareverde Apartment with 2 Bedrooms
Great location and beautiful apartment
Stayed here for 10 days with my 2 children in October 2018. My children loved the pools which kept them occupied happily with all the levels, waterfall and slide bits. It was very cold water but kids don't care lol. The pool edges were a bit tired looking but didn't effect use. The apartment is lovely and you can see newly fitted with kitchen, bathroom and decorated through out, I would say possibly one of the most comfortable double beds I have slept in abroad, I'm a lousy sleeper but slept great. Although would recommend eye mask as no blinds on small window in double bedroom. The owners are very nice, mentioned it was very hot 1st night and the next day they had bought a new room fan which made the rest of the stay cool. Everything you could possibly need is in the apartment and the nice touch is they leave what others haven't used for future visitors! ie dishwasher tabs, cloths, sauces etc. The Italian couple next door (residents) are lovely. Only ate at the on site food bar once which was nice and reasonably priced (water filling machine there which is cheaper than buying more bottles, more eco friendly and less distance to carry back than from shops, awesome idea).. The complex is only 10 min walk from a large supermarket (tip - take wheelie cabin case to put shopping in, saves on arms). There is 2 little shops just outside complex but contents are limited and more money than supermarket. Only 10-15 min stroll to sea, snorkelling near harbour (where inflatable obstacle course is) is great, lots of beautiful fish to be seen. Overall great holiday, apartment and location. …
