Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had booked an apartment on this excelent complex with Francisco, sub tropical gardens, several pools, by the beach, with restaurants on site and supermarket. Cancelada village it is just 10-15 minutes walk from the complex, has really nice restaurants, Casa Miguel restaurant can not be missing, pharmacy, shops, groceries shops and many more. The apartment was superb, we had a 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms poolside, the apartment was great, modern, spotless clean, well equipped, garden furnished very comfortable. Our childrens love it, they were all day long on the pool where for us was great as we been able to watch them. Francisco and his team always been very helpfull, comunicative from the day we book the property, a very welcome on arrival and during our stay. Strongly recommendation to use him and his team we defintly will be back to this complex.

As a family we have been coming to Villacana now for 30 years, and this last visit which was for three weeks, again has not disappointed.

Nestled in the lovely gardens that have not changed in all tht time, it still holds a rustic and calm charm.

The staff are always friendly and helpful from the Reception to the Maintenance staff and also the helpful cleaners. Fresh towls offered twice a week and the cleanliness of both the apartments and the grounds is of top quality.

The Restaurant was clean and friendly and served amazing cocktails and meals too.

Lisa the Entertainment organiser (who incidentally has also been with Villacana for 27 years) was as beaming and smiley as ever and created such fun with her activities. Her Aquafit classes were as relaxed or as strenuous as you wanted them to be and not to be missed.

Looking forward to our nexr visit in August.

Villacarna is such a lovely complex.
The apartment we had was perfect (if a little dates) but very clean. The only negative was that our appointment was closest to the main road and the windows aren’t double glazed.
Additionally Cancelada Council organise a summer 4 day event and the music continues till 6.30am .
The reception staff, cleaners and gardeners deserve a special mention. The receptionists were so helpful and if they didn’t know the answer were proactive in finding out answers.
The cleaners never seemed to stop and the rooms and especially the common areas across the complex were immaculate. The gardeners/facility service team kept the whole complex tidy too.
There was never rubbish on the floor around the pool or the corridors.

Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Special thanks to Vanessa for being so helpful and smiley

Being staying at Villacana regularly for the past 5 years. Mainly because the gardens are beautiful, well kept and by the beach. Has a very pleasant feel about it and great character. However, be warned that not all apartment (that belong to different owners) are the same. You will find that most are very dated with furniture and beds that havent been renovated for donkey years. Quite unacceptable considering what they charge and that you can get nice clean decent furniture from Ikea these days for the price of a week's rent. If you find a decent apartment stick to the same one if you return. Also, avoid mid July to Mid August. The place gets very crowded. Life guards are generally very lenient in the small pools and the odd 3 or 4 "wild" kids spoil it for the rest. All in all a nice place if you are able to find the one apartment that is modern and well kept in the inside, but there are better places in the area for the price

Relocated to South Villacana for a change. Apartment was excellent,clean and tidy. At bottom pool Enrique's and 90 mile are open and work is ongoing rebuilding the new Baraka Beach. In Cancelada, Casa Miguel and the butchers are open as is the street restaurant. All the the cafes and restaurants at the parking area are open and are as lively as usual. Only blight on the horizon was the Boabab restaurant at the middle pool ( North ). Whilst the food was good the restaurant opened between 10 and 12 am but the kitchen closed at 8pm and the bar shut at 9pm, not great for a late drink. Luckily Gregorio's is up and running where one can dine and drink until who knows when. Possibly the restaurant hours will improve as business increases. The small shop was still in the process of stocking up and I'm sure Lisa will prove to be a great owner. Have owned here for 30+ years and still enjoy returning.

We first came here over 30 years ago, and recently visited after a 12 year absence.

The last 2 years of covid have clearly taken its toll.

The supermarket on site had recently been taken over, and they are working hard to get their stock up.

Disappointingly, the beach restaurant is closed, the place is a building site, and the beach is a mess, no chair hire, and no service at all.

Aztec is also closed, so only the upstairs restaurant and the bar available. The restaurant closed on Thursday, so we were left with 92 miles (the bar), who were super friendly, and sorted us out with take out food for our lunch.

Major building work is due to start next week on the beach, they are building a path over the sand, and of course work continues on the new beach bar, sadly we were not told about any of this, and when we queried this, we were just told it was beyond their control. Maybe so, but holiday makers should be informed.

We did have a very pleasant stay overall, but will probably not be returning in the near future.

Just returned from 2 weeks at Villacana after a 13 year break and we were not disappointed. The villa was huge, clean and comfortable with a lovely bougainvillea filled garden where we ate meals most days. That is when we weren't eating fresh croissants from the shop or dining at Enrique's, 90 miles or the poolside Azteca. Baraka beach restaurant was closed for a rebuild but that didn't spoil anything. The grounds at villacana are so well maintained and beautiful you can forgive the gardeners for waiting you up early when they work at the cooler start to the day. Everyone from the gardeners to the security staff are so lovely and helpful. We are going back in September for another cheeky holiday minus the kids this time and I can't wait

Have been going to Villacana for many years now, unfortunatley we had to miss last year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, we made the decision to go despite alll the hoops we had to jump through to get there. Generally, the whole area is very quiet. We were extremely pleased to see our lovely Lisa, who has become a good friend, but she is supportive in anything we need to know or do. Lisa certainly works us in her aquafit classes, and even though we have gone for years, there is always something new to learn on her escorted walk to Cancelada! It's a shame that not many were there for the Spanish lessons. Lets hope more people brave it next year, its worth it!

Beautiful location. Close to shopping, restaurants and city bus stop. Wonderful food, friendly people, gracious staff. We were treated well during off season. It was first time to Spain. We learned so much about the area, such a melting pot. Enjoyed the local cuisine as well.

We had another extremely relaxing week at Villacana again.  This was my second visit to the resort and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was as feel maintained and spotless as on the previous occasion.  The gardens in particular are beautiful, the hibiscus and bougainvillaea are stunning, combined with the scents from the jasmine in the evenings make staying here such a pleasure for the senses.  

The apartment was very well appointed, complete with everything you could want for a week's holiday - even a cocktail shaker!  The wine glasses came in much more handy.  

Staying in Villacana is such an easy option, everything you require for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday on the Costa del Sol is right on hand.  The resort has a couple of good restaurants and if you want a more authentic Spanish experience the village of Cancelada is a few minutes walk across the main road.
