“Great hike to The Lost Village”
Reviewed 24 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were a group of four friends that booked Competa Hikes for a guided hike to the Lost Village. We had a great hike, with competent and very friendly guides, and this was the highlight of our weekend in Competa. We will highly recommend Competa Hikes and will definitely book new hikes with them if we return to Competa.

“Magical Getaway”
Reviewed 18 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I can highly recommend this place. Everything about it is relaxed, fun and fantastic. My husband and some friends stayed here for a couple of nights. We combined the stay with a walk and a birthday party. The place is amazing; it's so private with a fantastic range of facilities - everything from hammocks, to a BBQ, pool and Jungle bar. Everything is dotted around in a wood so it all feels very exclusive. It is a beautiful place and at night with all the lights on it really is magical. David is a fantastic host; he is relaxed but gets everything done exactly how you asked for it. He took us on a 3.5hour walk through the local mountain trails which was a wonderful experience. We topped off our stay with a selection of his authentic and fantastic curries which he made for my friend’s birthday party. We will be coming back for more walks and with larger groups. There is range of accommodation types with some shared facilities but enough privacy to keep the peace in any family or group of friends.

“Wonderful and relaxing”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this delightful property. We hiked in the hills, relaxed by the pool, and could not have asked for more. It was easy to travel to the village or down to the Coast. I would recommend this property.

“Fantastic for family celebrations”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were looking for a place to accommodate a large group of friends and family to celebrate my 50th. Other large properties were available but Finca los Pinos appealed because the owners were clearly geared up for such parties. And so it proved. David and Sarah made every effort to make our stay a success. Everything from cooking a special BBQ, taking us on an exhilarating river trip to accompanying me to the local A&E when small child had an accident! The accommodation is varied enough to suit different kinds of guests from small children to couples who want to be away from the hubbub. The outdoor eating area is great for socialising and there is a cool wooden bar overlooking the pool. The place is about 10 minutes from Competa which is a pretty and not too touristy 'pueblo blanco' and about 35 mins from Nerja which is a nice resort down on the Costa. The only downside worth mentioning is that the road up to Competa is long and windy with a dirt track at the end to reach the Finca. Might not suit less confident drivers.

“Beautiful location and wonderful villas”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in the villa as a large family group and it was perfect for us giving us enough space and privacy when needed but having the capacity to bring us all together as a group for meals and during the day.

David was a fantastic host who was there whenever we needed assistance but did it in a way that meant we had our privacy as a family without us feeling he was around. He was so helpful with advice on the area and helping with shopping and giving us lifts. The African BBQ was amazing and our trip to climb waterfalls with him and Dan completely blew us away.

We loved lazing by the pool and messing around as a family enjoying the trampolines and hammocks and walking up and around the hills surrounding the villa. I would recommend hiring cars to stay here as Competa is a short drive away and not walkable and it's also useful to be able to pop out and about especially to get to the supermarket.

We had a fabulous week here - fully recommend.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The service we received during our stay at Los Pinos was excellent. We were already in Spain the previous week and David picked us up from our hotel. We booked for a weeks walking holiday. David arranged guides for our walking trips who were excellent. David, Dan and the dogs came with us on some walks which made us feel right at home. David prepared all our meals and along with Dan served them. The food and service was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble.The accommodation was first class. It was a home from home with all conveniences. The location is great. You can sit by the pool all day, go walking, cycling or visit the local area. All activities are within easy reach from Los Pinos and David was happy to provide transport.
I would like to thank David for all his help in providing a great holiday.

“fabulous holiday!”
Reviewed 9 March 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Stayed at Finds Los Pinos in August 2014 for a week. We were a big group - 12 adults, 4 children and 2 infants!

The property is amazing, really beautiful and peaceful. Plenty of space for us all to do our own thing and then a lovely outside eating area with a BBQ. Pool nice and clean, lots of stuff for the kiddies to play with.

David and Sarah were amazing, really friendly and helpful. They cooked curry for us all on one night, food was delicious and made a nice change to BBQ - would highly recommend! We also met up with them in Competa for a festival, they were able to recommend places to eat out and took the !ead with the bookings we made, very helpful when your Spanish is basic at best!

Only downside was the distance from the nearest town (Competa). You definitely need a car to get to the supermarket etc. The bus we hired through David to take us into Competa and back/to the beach for the day was definitely on the expensive side even with the cost split between the 12 adults.

All in all a fabulous week, fabulous place to stay and fabulous owners!!
