“Incredible!”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed at El Paso in June and what more can we say than wow! There were 5 of us which meant it was an extremely spacious and comfortable stay! Everything is brand new, the beds are more comfortable than at home and the location is the perfect distance from the busy town of Nerja. Close enough to get there within 5 mins but far enough away to enjoy the tranquility of the South of Spain! The pool is a great size, there are plenty of loungers for everyone and the general feel of the house is like the owners have thought of everything. Whether it's Sky TV or, a speaker system with the latest iPhone 6 connection, we couldn't compliment this villa enough. Great value for money, definitely going back next year!

“Ideal property, great location, excellent support.”

We stayed in El Paso 12, on the outskirts of Nerja on the Punta Lara urbanisation. The villa itself is on the edge of the estate on the lowest reaches with the back of the property facing fields and trees. The front faces the steep climbs of other Punta Lara properties further up the hill-side. Although you could argue that it is over-looked, in reality you don't really notice this at all as the property is enclosed within it's own walls. From the master bedroom and associated terrace you look out onto the properties further up the hill-side and you get a good view of the sea to the left.
The villa is very well presented and kept as you'd expect. Lot's of home comforts and a well equipped (small, but big enough) kitchen. Everything is light and airy.
Outside the pool is smallish but the kids still loved splashing about. It's worth paying the extra to get it heated in the early part of the season otherwise it would be too cold. Just don't expect to do 100 meters before breakfast - it's really just for splashing about in. Another big bonus was the inflatables supplied. All sorts of stuff, including super soakers (which I regretted giving to the kids almost immediately)
It has a very nice charcoal BBQ which we used a lot. Took a while to find a place that sold charcoal but Helen came to the rescue and suggested a few places - thanks! (btw, it's the BP garage near Lidls)
The location is ideal. 5 minutes drive into the center of Nerja. Park in the municipal under-ground car park (which is very reasonable), and you are smack bang in the middle of town with the Balcon de Europa a short walk away, with cafe bars and restaurants everywhere.
If you want to drink then a taxi is reasonable too. I wouldn't want to walk it though. This area of Nerja has a nice European feel with it's lovely plaza centered around a white fronted church. I didn't see a football shirt anywhere. (although this was March/April it may be different later in the year). The beach is over the road from Punta Lara. There is a huge free car park a hundred meters or so down the road - actually more of an open area than a car park, but we were a bit disappointed with the beach here - it was very narrow and nothing at all there. There are much better ones nearer Nerja itself. But we didn't come for the beaches.
So in summary, great location, very nice villa, and ideal for a relaxing break. Nerja itself has everything you'd want. I would definitely recommend.

“Lovely Villa”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This fantastic Villa offers everything you would want and need while staying there. My personal favourite feature is the sun terrace off of the Master Bedroom which is equipted with two very comfortable sun loungers plus a table and chairs. It benefits from the sunshine all day as does the pool area.

It is very clean and tidy with nice decoration. The lounge is a great place to relax with two sofas and Sky TV. It has a large dinning room table for a family meal in addition to the table and chairs just outside the patio doors. Also outside is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the privacy this place offers.

We took the short walk to the beach each day and I'd like to give a mention how nice the coast line is just a stones throw from the Villa. During or stay we hired a car and parking wasn't an issue as we were able to park outside the front every day.

“Home from home in the sun! ”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Had a wonderful break here in October ... The weather was particularly kind but with a heated pool it wouldn't have mattered if if had been cooler!
The Villa was a perfect home from home with everything you could ever need including hair dryer and straighteners!
Lots to do locally ... Tennis, paddle board and Segway rides to name a few!
Didn't have time to visit the caves but as I'm told they are really worth a visit will have to go back!!!

“Excellent luxurious villa well placed for sun and beach!”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This villa can easily accommodate 8 people it has 2 double bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It is tastefully decorated with a well equipped kitchen. The upstairs master bedroom has a balcony which is an excellent sun trap for those die hard sun worshippers!
We were out in the last week of October the weather was in the mid to high 20's. We could not get the kids out of the heated pool even at 9pm at night! Pool has lilos and plenty of toys to keep the kids amused. If the kids were not in the pool they were watching Sky Sports or a movie from the well stocked family collection of DVDs.
We made use of the Provençal BBQ on a couple of the nights.
Nerja is only a short taxi ride away which only cost 8 euros each way. For the more adventurous Nerja is 15 minutes by foot on a well lit beach path.
We had a wonderful time in Nerja and the experience was enhanced by this luxurious villa. We will certainly be re visiting.

We stayed here the first week of August. There are 5 of us, three adults and two adult sized teenagers, there was plenty of room for all us. The villa has excellent facilities, the pool is great, the bedrooms and bathrooms, lounge and kitchen are spotlessl6 clean, modern and have ample room. The sky tv was an added bonus especially for watching England win the Ashes. It was exceptionally hot in our week in Nerja and although the master bedroom had an excellent air con unit which created fridge like conditions, this was lacking in other rooms. The balcony off of the master bedroom is fantastic and a lovely place to enjoy the sunset and a glass of vino or a cup of tea and watch the sun rise. Overall an excellent place to stay!

“Total Relaxation in a perfect setting.”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed in El Paso 12 in July 2015. We used Nerja Taxis to transfer from Malaga Airport to Punta Lara and would certainly recommend them. Arriving late at night a little tired we found the instructions given to locate and access the villa very easy to follow and once in we were not disappointed in any way, What a lovely villa.
El Paso 12 is located in a quiet street but the local beach is just a short walk away. There is a wonderful large, front facing balcony with great Mountain views and is perfect for late evening sunbathing. Nerja is just a short bus or taxi ride away and well worth a few visits. We also visited the Nerja caves and had a late evening meal in the Moorish village of Frigliana.
However, the main aim of our holiday was to relax. El Paso 12 is perfect for that. Well equipped with a wonderful pool, pool furniture and inflatables. We ate outside on the verandah table and chairs in the wonderful Spanish heat. The Villa itself has everything you need for a very relaxing family holiday. The whole family loved it and we hope to return again soon.
