“Fantastic villa and breathtaking views, we will be back!”

My family had a fantastic week at villa El Nido de Aguilas and would highly recommend you shortlist this villa if you are looking for a completely relaxing holiday.
We were a family of 6, consisting of 2 x grandparents and 2 x parents of a four and half year old boy and a 5 month old baby. Everything you could think of was provided in the villa from a high chair, cot, books, DVDs, Wi, WiFi and inflatables.
The villa was very clean on arrival and the kitchen looked brand new, the villa was obviously well maintained and large enough for everybody to have their own privacy and space. There are two balconies on the first floor which we enjoyed very much, watching the sunset against the mountains of Morocco across the Mediterranean.
The swimming pool area is at the front of the villa and is very large, it had fantastic panoramic views of the coast while behind you is a peaceful garden with palm trees. There were plenty of sun beds and chairs with good quality seat covers and 2 parasols. The summer house had a barbeque in it, the summer house was a godsend and extremely useful. Apart from some lovely cooking we were able to open all the doors and erect the baby pool in the shade. This took care of our children for the week, they loved it!
There are plenty of good restaurants nearby to enjoy, it takes about 12-15 minutes to walk to the Pueblo, and I would highly recommend La Fuente in the main square.
As we had a very young baby in our party, we knew we would not be doing much travelling around so we did not hire a car. We initially hired a taxi from the airport and it took 24 minutes from when we set off to our arrival at the villa where Connie (the property manager) was waiting to welcome us. The villa is about 5 minutes from a bus stop, the buses run every hour and it is about a 15 minute journey to Fuengirola/Benalmadena Costa and 25-30 minutes to Marbella.
The only difficulty we had is the big shop, where it would have been useful to have a car, but we managed by taking a leisurely walk to the local Lidl supermarket. If you don't have a car and want to stock up for the week it would be a good idea to hire a taxi rather than walk, especially for water and other drinks which are heavy to carry.
The owner (Chris) was prompt to respond to queries and Connie, the property management agent, was always on hand.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and didn't want to come home. We would definitely stay here again.

“We all loved every minute.”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I have just spent a fantastic week in El Nido Aguilas with my family. This is a truly beautiful villa. The location is idyllic, the villa is set in the hillside so the panoramic views of the coast line are absolutely stunning.
The pool is crystal blue and very clean and again has stunning views. It is the perfect place to just chill out and while away the hours, there were some brand new sun loungers and covers, which was a nice surprise. We had a couple of great barbecues in the summer house and sat around the pool drinking sangria in the evening.
There is plenty to do in the area and the bars and restaurants in Benalmadena Pueblo are within walking distance. We also visited Mijas, Puerto Banus, Marbella, Malaga and even Ronda and Grenada (although not all on this holiday!)
The villa itself is absolutely gorgeous, it has polished marble floors and lovely decor, the kitchen and bathrooms all look new and everything was clean and inviting.
We have rented many holiday homes over the years and this is the best yet and excellent value for money. We have certainly paid a lot more and got a lot less for our money in the past.
All in all, it was a lovely holiday, we didn’t want to leave so I guess we will just have to go back next year!
Thanks to Chris for a wonderful holiday.

We stayed in the villa in July this year and had a lovely time. My wife and i were looking for a break in a private location and the villa suited us perfectly. You will need a hire car to get to the Villa and also to get around as its not in the town, which is perfect.

The pool was lovely and the layout of the villa was ideal. The views are one of the most impressive parts of the place. As its up in the hills you get wonderful views over the coast.

There are some lovely restaurants in the local town and we also used the BBQ at the villa quite a few times.

We also drove to Gibraltar and had a tour round the rock which was a good day out.

Will definitely look at going again next year.

“Fabulous location”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The villa was gorgeous and the views amazing, a car is definitely recommended as it is situated on a steep hill, the only negatives were the inflatables all had holes in apart from one, also, there were no cushions on the loungers, when we arrived there was a pair of socks left in one of the bedrooms, and the wifi wasn't working. That said, I would highly recommend it.

Stayed at El Nido Aguilas villa from 2-9 October 2012. The villa is absolutely gorgeous with spectacular views. The weather was 30C+ each day which helped. The pool area got the sun from 9am until 7pm which we took full advantage of. We didn't hire a car but you don't need one, its a 20 minute walk to the Pueblo or down to the Carrefore supermarket. For those who don't hire a car and don't want to walk out the local taxi firm are great, journey cost no more than €7 to both (0034 952 441545). The villa is huge and more than enough to cater for 6-8 people. The villa was very clean and is beautiful inside. If weather not to good there's plenty of DVDs to watch or a wii to play. Will definitely return.

We stayed at El Nido Aguilas in July 2012 - 4 adults and 2 teenagers. The villa is very clean and spacious and as two families, we could find space for ourselves if necessary. The pool area was lovely, with beautiful views down to Benalmadena, Fuengirola and over the Mediterranean - exactly as the photos show. There is a large pool house with a built in barbeque, which we made good use of. We found everything we needed provided in the villa, especially in the kitchen - even down to shopping bags and umbrellas (not that they were needed!).

There are a number of steps to access the property, so you should bear this in mind if you have small children or mobility problems. However, the benefit of being on a steep hillside are the uninterrupted views.

I would say that you definitely need to have a car. We made good use of the local Carrefour and Aldi, which are both about a 2 minute drive. We did walk to Benalmadena Pueblo for evening meals on a few occasions. The walk took about 20 minutes and there are many restaurants to choose from in the two Plaza's and on the main street. A favourite of ours was Sopranos on the main street.

All in all I would definitely recommend this property to anyone if you do not mind a few steps. We certainly plan to return in the future, as it is a fantastic place to chill and relax by the pool, with a good book!
