“"Spot on"!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This place is just what you looking for, for a memorable time together with friends or family. The villa is just amazing and together with a professionale staff and servants, you get everythin you looking for in a relaxed vacation. I will definitly go back, and can give my warmest regards to those of you who want to make the vacation in Spain.a little more luxurius and special, compared to "standard" houses/flats!

“Stunning & spacious villa, feels like you are in a palace.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed at Vila El Cano for my birthday this year in April with a group of 20 people, and oh my what a fantastic holiday it was--we didn't want to leave. One thing I will say is that the pictures do not do the villa justice, the place is stunning!! The villa is well equipped with everything and more to cater for large groups, the kitchen is well laid out and perfect for entertaining, not to mention the outside/ inside hot-tub and pool. One would think that with a large group in one place we would get in each other's way, but not once did we feel that it was overcrowded, in fact it was the opposite. All the rooms and public areas are extremely spacious with exquisite furnishings and decor, fabulous en-suite bathrooms and most rooms having a view or leading out to the pool area. The views are incredible with stunning views of Los Flamingos golf course and the mountains. Perfect for a golfing holiday, with a large variety of courses to choose from. The staff were very friendly and accommodating to our needs, and resolved any issues immediately. Overall we had an amazing week of sheer bliss, and I would highly recommend this villa to others.

“A stunning Villa offering luxurious accommodations and gorgeous views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Working in the luxury villa rental industry I've had the opportunity to experience many high-end properties throughout Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe. While El Cano is in the price point of the mid-range villas I've stayed at, it certainly competes with the very best of them!

The attention to detail provided by Helen (property manager) and Vali (on-site manager), ensured that our entire group felt both welcomed and assured that we would not have a thing to worry about the moment we walked through the door.

The Villa itself is stunning and being spread out over such a large grounds, gave the feeling that it was never crowded even though we had 20 adults and 2 children. The facilities are a huge bonus with many in the group taking full advantage of the tennis court, putting green, indoor and outdoor pools, hot-tubs and sauna.

I was very pleased to find that the kitchen was very well designed to cater for large groups between the 5 fridges, 2 freezers, 4 ovens, etc.. and our chefs made use of it to great effect. The dining space outdoor is the perfect way to end each day reflecting on the activities of the day together while watching spectacular sunsets over the hill.

This is an ideal spot for golfers with the villa literally overlooking the picture perfect Los Flamingos course. You don't realize how close it is until you are actually walking up one of the fairways and see 'your' villa looking down on you. Remember to allot some time to spend at the palacial club-house. Between the marble pillars, iron work, fountains, wall paintings and piano playing, you do get that 'regal' feeling no matter how your game was.

We all had such a great time and only wish we could have stayed for longer to further explore the many local activities and sights, but hopefully we'll be back to pick up where we left off from.

Many thanks, Nicolas
