We have just come back from a weeks holiday in the villa and had a fantastic time. We were a party of 5 and the villa was spacious enough that we weren't on top of each other. It is as it looks in the pictures with everything you may need including pool towels. It's a nice 20/25 min walk down hill to the beach and the supermarket is only 10 minute walk away. It is a steep walk back up to the villa but if you don't fancy tackling it a taxi is 5/6 euros from the beach. Gloria and her husband are quick to respond to any questions you may have and are close by if you have any problems whilst staying in the villa. The Abaco restaurant near the villa has lovely views and the cocktails are just as lovely.
I would definetly stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who is visiting Puerto de la Cruz.
My wife and I have spent four weeks in this villa that has all the amenities. We have been able to walk to the beach and the center of the Port in 20 minutes. And then a taxi took us to the villa for 4 or 5 euros, very cheap.
Puerto de la Cruz is a beautiful city and the weather is fantastic.
The villa is new and modern. The best mattresses are very comfortable. In the kitchen there is everything. The cleanliness is excellent.Every week we had a free cleaning with change of bed linen and towels. The owners left us many towels, also for the pool or the beach. The pool with hot water is great. Every day we have enjoyed the sun and the pool. It has been a luxury vacation. Thanks to the owners Gloria and Miguel Ángel
Great villa done out to a high standard. Nice and relaxing time was had. Local shops and restaurants only a short walk away., all down hill. So would recommend a taxi back, which are cheap. The only drawback was as the villa is in a residential area the dogs barking was a bit annoying. Great views of the mountains from the garden.
We had mixed feelings about the villa and the location. Like everybody we read all the reviews and decided to go for the holiday.Firstly the villa is as described by all other reviews, immaculate and we'll equipped for self catering.The pool is heated and there is a safety barrier for small kids. 3 things we didnt like about the villa, 1.The driveway for our car was narrow and on a steep incline which took a bit of skill to park safely( Opel Mokka).2.Dogs barking morning and night, not so much during the day, we did read about dogs barking in a previous review but our experience was that there are numerous dogs barking around the villa, which for a holiday isn't ideal.3. We had a problem with small ants running around,I told the owner and he did his best, but these should have been dealt with professionally before any guest arrives, we saw them in the kitchen and bathroom and my young daughter continued to point them out for 2 weeks!!
I am sure the owner will rectify the ants.
There is good shopping centres and supermarkets around easily found on Google maps.Titos is a must but check your bill..The taxi drivers are excellent, very honest and helpful,fares range from 3-5 euro for local fares.If you have kids, Loro Park is expensive but a great day out, bring your own food and drinks as they practically charge you for breathing, and arrive before 10am if you would like to park inside, 4 euro. Used Cicacar for hire car, excellent 10 stars for them if possible......
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa, it was immaculate and had great facilities. The location was perfect as base to explore the island and within Puerto de la Cruz, you can easily walk to the shops and botanical gardens but its in a residential area that feels less busy and touristy. We had read bad reviews about Abaco which is 2 seconds away but decided to go for a early evening drink towards the end of our stay and it was lovely, we wished we had been earlier. Titos is also very close and the food there was lovely.
The villa is lovely and pool was great for a refreshing dip as it is slightly heated. The gate around the pool was a life saver with our toddler and meant we didn't need to constantly worry were she was. Gloria was more than helpful and always available for questions and we would love to return to this island that surpassed our expectations.
