Nice villa in a good area. The villa was clean and spacious with all we needed for our family.
The beach was very close , bars restaraunts and shops not to far away. The train station was a ten minute walk way and very handy for Torremolinos , Malaga and the airport.

“Perfect Location, Stunning Villa, Quiet Neighborhood, Close to Airport”
Reviewed 5 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Location:- The villa 3 stops on the train from Malaga airport and a short walk from the station which made our holiday so much better - in the villa an hour after landing. The villa is also a road away from the beach and the surrounding villas were family homes so it was quiet. The beach has so many beautiful restaurants all 5 minutes walk from the villa and we found the quality better than the centre of Torremolinos. If you want peace and quiet but be able to get in easily to the hussle and bussle of Torremolinos this is the one for you.

Villa:- The villa is large, well equipped and clean. Space for everyone and then some. The pool is a great size and perfect for cooling down after sun bathing on one of the two terraces. Although there are villa surrounding it is not overlooked as the foliage does cover direct views. Actually perfect to feel secluded.

Owner: - Pat has been really helpful throughout my booking and always at hand with information and came back in a timely manner.

We would go back as it gave us everything we wanted, it was easy, peaceful and close to what we wanted. Thanks for everything.

“Very Good Location, Hire car not needed”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

The location of the property was very good for us. No hire car was required as the transfer from the airport is simple via the C1 / C2 trains, which run every 20 Minutes. It is just 2 stops to Los Alamos and a 10 Minute stroll to the Villa.
The Villa is situated away from TORREMOLINOS towards MALAGA in a quieter location which was nice.
The shops, beach, bars and restaurants are just a short stroll and there was plenty of choice to suit all tastes. We travelled as Grand parents with Children and Grand children ( under 4 years old ) and everything was perfect for us.
The Best feature by far is the Pool as we had temperatures near 40 degrees every day and the Pool was heaven.
The Agents were very Helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

“Perfectly located, large Villa, family friendly.”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We recently spent a week in this lovely villa and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The villa is excellently placed only a 10 min trip from Malaya airport and a couple of minutes walk from the beach and train station. The house is bright and airy, clean and well-equipped, with a gorgeous terrace overlooking a shaded pool. Touches like stairgates and a games room kept the little ones busy when not in pool.
Los Alamos is a quieter spot than Torremolinos but conveniently located to all the tourist attractions. Plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops within walking distance. Highly-recommended property!

“Great place for a great holiday!!!”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This place is fantastic!!! I was one of a party of 8 ( aged 3-66) and the villa was perfect for all of us. This place is huge!! The photos really dont do it justice. There are 4 lovely bedrooms and 4 restrooms, all very clean and tidy. Each room had a fan in the cupboard as well as extra bedding and pillows. The garage has been made into a games room which was good fun. It is very cool down there and this is used as another bedroom as there is a sofabed. The kitchen was well equipt for our needs and the utility room was a blessing, saving us all the washing at home! The lounge\diner was very comfortable, but the sky box had limited channels and the WiFi had to be paid for. Previous guests have left games and books which was great to pass time at night and the pool has a brilliant selection of inflatables and water guns in the store room next to the pool. The promenade and beach where a 2 minute walk from the villa, with tons of restaurants, bars, shops and kiosks all along the beach front. The train station (Los Alamos) is no more than a 10 minute walk away. There are several supermarkets within walking distance too. I will definitely be recommending villa catriona to friends and would come here again should we return to Spain. Thanks to Pat and the ladies from the agency who where so kind and helpful!!

“Recent stay”
Reviewed 13 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

I really enjoyed my recent holiday in Villa Catriona-I had read and agree with most of the other reviews, the villa is stunning, and met and exceeded our expectations: The local agency responded within a few hours to one problem with electricity which was most impressive and we had a very good relationship with the owner Pat, who responded quickly to our queries. Our children and adults in the party really enjoyed the table tennis and the play area downstairs was constantly in use in the evenings.

The swimming pool was excellent but a pity that we did not have more hours of sunshine to spend more time in the pool.

Beach and shops were just a few minutes' walk from the villa with excellent promenade for leisurely strolls.

Strongly recommend and will probably return again.
