Dear Celia,

Thank you for your recent review, we are delighted to read you enjoyed every aspect of your stay with us. I was naturally disappointed to hear you experienced problems with the dishwasher during your stay, Andreea our property manager brought to head office attention following your stay and a new dishwasher was purchased. Hopefully on your next visit you'll get to try it out.
We look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

“’exceptional’”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Travelled with a group of friends for a special occasion and had a fantastic time. The villa is in a wonderful position with private swimming pool, beautiful gardens and tastefully furnished terrace area. We spent most of our days and evenings enjoying the sun and music on the terrace. We hired private chef Sergio to cook our lunch and dinner. Sergio looked after the shopping, cooking and tidy up afterwards. What more could we ask for! We walked to the nearby beach on a couple of occasions a short 10-15 minutes and there’s a nice café/beach bar serving breakfast.
The staff were very accommodating and looked after our every need. This is a high quality villa which oozes class. Would highly recommend.

“Amazing, Amazing, Amazing”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Stayed in big Cid in Mid May with 16 friends on a golfing/boys holiday. The villa itself was absolutely beautiful. The indoor and outdoor pools were incredible, every bedroom/ensuite finished to a very high standard and the kitchens were outrageously impressive. Andrea the villa manager was a pleasure to deal with, she was helpful throughout our stay, no task too big/too small. The villa is also in a great location only Euro 20 from Puerto Buenos - not that you will want to leave the villa. I cant say enough great things about this villa - its perfect for a big group who want some luxury for a week! Also shout out to Mario who was on great form during our stay.

“Magical”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in El Cid as a large family group for a week in July. The villa itself is breathtaking, bedrooms are nicely decorated and spacious. It has every facility you could want and then some! I particularly loved the outdoor kitchen and dining area, plenty of space to cater for large groups with great views of the surrounding hills, Villa Padierna hotel and golf course. The pool area I absolutely loved, even though we were a large group it didn't feel crowded with ample space for all. We also spent a lot of time on the outdoor terrace which overlooks Villa Padierna Hotel and los flamingos golf course with comfy furniture it is perfect for morning or evening. The villa was maintained excellently everyday by Andrea and Daniela to ensure we had the best experience possible. Our stay in El Cid was very special and magical. I would highly recommend a stay in Villa El Cid for a large group event or a special holiday with family and friends.
