Stayed in Villa 4, 2 adults 3 children 15/14/8 yrs. The villas (18 all together - 8 at the front of the complex 1-8 and 10 at the back 9-18) they are part of the hotel Caleta Dorada. Very spacious, throughout. You could comfortably get 10 people in. There are two bedrooms one with a double bed and the other with twin beds (down in the basement with the pool table there are three double sofa beds). All the rooms (bathroom, living room and two bedrooms) open out on to the pool area a bit strange I know but you get used to it. We had the one key and locked our bedroom door at night and the two older children had the other key to lock their door. Sleeping arrangements were a bit awkward for us the two older children went in the twin room but there wasn't enough room in the double bed to get two adults and my eight year old and we didn't want to be down in the basement away from the other two children, so to solve the problem I bought in one of the sun loungers from by the pool and made it a bit more comfortable by padding it out with the three thick wooly blankets then covered it with a sheet, job done. I managed to sleep on it but I can sleep on a washing line. Be careful of ants I found some in the wardrobe so moved the clothes out of there. Also in the kitchen, the bathroom and around by the pool. No air conditioning although both bedrooms had a fan. Bed clothes changed once during the week and villa cleaned twice. Pool cleaned and filled up twice. Plenty of towels and toilet paper. Pool table in the basement occupied the children when it got to hot for them outside. Jacuzzi a bonus I think I may install one at home cause my boys have never been so clean. The jacuzzi is downstairs in the basement it may seem strange tho it has no roof. Also down in the basement is another toilet and wash basin. The pool was great, a bit cold for some who slowly edged their way in down the steps but if you just jump right in you'll be fine. Five sun loungers and a parasol (note take the parasol down if it gets windy, we had to retrieve ours from the pool) I noticed some of the other villas had big bbq's perhaps because they were self catering, we went all inclusive (we had the use of the facilities on the complex Caleta Dorada) so we didn't need one. Big flat screen tv and dvd player and stereo system. Note be careful if you have children there are channels freely available that are not suitable for the young (if you know what I mean). There is a washing machine, dish washer, large fridge freezer, microwave kettle, toaster, four ring cooker and oven with grill, everything you need to go self catering. Double sink in the bathroom upstairs with a shower, toilet and bidet. The villa catches the sun all day. There is a safe fixed in the wardrobe in the bedroom, you are given a key for it along with your villa keys, we seperated ours. Airport noise - isn't that bad at all. Market on Sunday on the complex. There are places to eat on the complex and two little supermarkets. The walk down to the beach takes about 10/15 minutes where there are more places to eat and a few shops and a supermarket. Nice walk around to the left to the floating shop in the harbour (you can walk further around but it was too hot for my little one to carry on) Nice and clean beach with sun beds and parasols to hire. Volley ball courts a little park for the kids. The other way takes you around over some waste ground to the shopping centre (not very impressed) and more places to eat. Nice for a walk tho. Tip don't have transfers from the airport it is literally a stones throw away and taxis are waiting in abundance. The transfer company we had wasn't at all organised we had to wait a good hour for the bus to turn up and then we ended up having our own mini bus as there wasn't enough room for us (at least we didn't have to go around dropping people off) but we could have started our holiday so much sooner. All staff from the receptionist to the dining room staff, bar staff, cleaners and the pool man were very pleasant (all of them over worked the staffing is a big issue). Lots of stray cats, the complex has it's own catery I don't know if that's a good thing tbh. We went all inclusive so we had the use of the facilities offered by the hotel Caleta Dorada (see my other review on hotel Caleta Dorada)
