Had a truly fabulous stay, everything about the villa and set up is out of this world.
We’re going back again same time this year!
We arrived for our long weekend at La Roca Rara at night – which was enchanting. The whole villa was beautifully lit up, light dancing from the swimming pool at the centre of the villa. Our twin room was spacious and spotless (as was the rest of the villa) plenty of room for the two of us. Our bedroom opened onto a small patio which was a delightful surprise when we discovered it in the morning sunshine.
A good size bathroom containing toiletry's just like a 3 star hotel.
The kitchen was huge and contained everything needed for a big function – the team of caterers constantly wowed us with their skills & also their knowledge of the area. We went there for the Rebel Yoga retreat by Sophie who was an excellent teacher. All in all a wonderful holiday. We will return in 2019!
This is the most beautiful, spacious and fantastically equipped villa with outstanding views. Seven ensuite bedrooms all open onto the pool which has numerous areas in which to sit should you wish to keep cool and out of direct sunlight. Tables, chairs, sofas and sun loungers aplenty. The kitchen has absolutely everything you could require for a large group of people. Best welcome basket I have received!! We did not need to food shop until the day after our arrival! Fantastic terrace at the front for outdoor eating and keeping a bit cooler should you wish. An amazing lounge area with beautiful ceiling, Tennis court and table tennis were fun. Such a pretty drive up to La Roca Rara - especially at night when all lights are highlitng large trees which line the drive. John was on hand to help us out with any queries we had and was friendly and efficient. On site supply of wine, beer, champagne etc very reasonably priced and of very good quality. One of the best things about the villa! I just hope that I can talk my group of 12 into returning very soon. Thank you for letting us use this beautiful villa. We had a wonderful trip.
Stayed here with a group of 6 couples and 5 children between us for a wedding & can not fault the villa at all.
Every room has its own bathroom which was a huge bonus. The bedrooms are all positioned around the swimming pool so perfect for keeping an eye on the children. The living room was huge and beautifully decorated, perfect for socialising.
The terrace at the front of the villa was beautiful and perfect for everyone to dine together of an evening.
The villa is at the top of a steep hill so will need a car or just get taxis to supermarkets (5 minutes away).
20 minute walk to bars & restaurants so perfectly manageable.
Richard who looks after the villa was very helpful and friendly.
Can't recommend highly enough, best villa we have stayed in!
Just returned from an amazing week at Roca Rara to celebrate my big birthday with family and friends. Everything about it is excellent - from our arrival to departure there were smiles all round. Loved the pool, tennis, table tennis and boules, or just relaxing in the many beautiful locations within the villa. A lovely meal prepared and cooked on site by Debbie and her husband (and brilliant team) for my birthday was superb. Then there was the manager, John - what can I say - he was excellent, and provided a welcome pack beyond expectations. I just want to go back!!
We stayed for 4 nights (8-12 Sept), in the middle of a two-week stay in Nerja, for my daughter's wedding. We couldn't have wished for a more ideal setting. The villa and grounds are fabulous, with all of the seven en-suite bedrooms being of a good size with comfortable beds, even the smallest one. The showers were really good too, with no worries of any fluctuating temperature changes, however many people using them.
Extras, such as luxurious pool towels, toiletries, bottled water, kiddies toys, high-chairs were all included. Can't praise the comfort of the property enough and the kitchen was enormous, being extremely well equipped and plenty big enough for our caterers to work in.
We had sixty guests for the wedding breakfast and there was plenty of room for the seven round tables in the large lounge area.
The ceremony was held outside in the lovely gardens, with the expansive terrace and its beautiful backdrop subsequently providing a great space for socialising.
As mentioned in previous reviews, John, the villa manager, was incredibly helpful and friendly, but always discrete plus he was very calm when we had a couple of unrelated-villa issues.
We didn't have the pool heated and it was fine and unfortunately didn't have any time (or was it too hot) to use the tennis court.
The hotel just down the road was very reasonable and handy for some of our guests (needed to book early as quite popular) and twenty of us had an excellent meal there one evening.
There's a steep corner up to the villa (and hotel) but no problem as long as you're prepared for it.
A fantastic time.
My now wife and I stayed at Roca Rara for a week with family and friends. During that week it was also the venue for our wedding. The venue/villa is absolutely stunning and communication with John, the villa manager, was great from day one. We viewed it twice before booking and a couple of times after, and nothing was ever a problem. He was incredibly helpful in all of our preparations and played a big part in helping the day run very smoothly.
All of our guests were blown away by the villa and it was truly an incredible place to celebrate such a special day. There is a lot of room throughout which gave us lots of different options for the ceremony and reception. I cannot recommend it highly enough for a wedding venue. You also get to stay there for a week which was incredible.
Every room is en suite and all of the beds are very comfortable.
At the end of the week I asked my friends and family if they had any feedback. The only thing that came back as a negative was that the wifi wasn't very consistent, and there could have been a few more sets of keys to go around.
Overall, 10/10! We will definitely be back in future.
