Taunton Couple and one other
The villa is lovely and a great location. We have stayed in this villa before, and a couple of previous problems have not been addressed. The shower in the en-suite needs attention and the wardrobe door in the main bedroom has come off the runners. These things were a problem last year and should have been addressed. Would have been lovely to have some outdoor furniture on the rooftop solarium.

Family (with only pre-school children)
The villa itself is on a lovely resort, very quiet but still within reach of restaurants and bars. It was nice that they provided you with pool towels and the owner/previous guests had left inflatables to use. The indoor space is really good and there's plenty of kitchen utensils for you to cook meals if you wanted to. The tv had a lot of English channels which was a massive bonus for us as we have a one year old so we spent a lot of time in the villa in the evenings after we'd put him to bed. The cot provided was of a high standard and the high chair was ok too.

The pool is great and there are plenty of sun loungers but unfortunately we felt the outdoor space could work a lot better. The top floor has two balconies, one was empty with no furniture so we couldn't use it and the other balcony at the front of the property (which got the sun in the evening) had really old and dirty white plastic furniture, two of the chairs were actually broken.

The pool is separated from the rest of the property's garden which is great if you have children, and there are trees all around the pool to keep it secluded but this also means that it gets quite shaded during the day. We felt the bit of garden behind the pool area was wasted as it's not used at all and if the trees were moved back a bit you would have a bit more space around the pool as it can be quite cramped with all the loungers.

The villa is very well kept and you have a linen/pool change halfway through the week. We also had men turn up to change the filters on the pool which made a difference to the water.

We would definitely stay here again, it's a lovely area.

Nice environment for active family holiday. The estate has got a wide range of facilities but venturing outside and exploring places like Cartagena are highly recommended.
Car is essential.

on arrival to our destination the directions were clear and we found the golf resort easily. The resort had a friendly atmosphere with plenty of amenities.
Very welcoming villa and nice size for family of 3 adults, two teenagers and a 6 year old. Lots of accessories to provide a comfortable stay and tea, coffee and milk available on arrival which was great as we arrived late in the evening.
