Stirlingshire Couple with grown up
Stayed at villa early Jan - the pool was perfect and used every day (well maintained) , furniture was a bit tired looking but clean and overall adequate for what you need. Well situated in a quiet area. relatively short walk to the local shopping and restaurants & not too far to the main resort of Calleta de Fuste. either by foot or by taxi. We had hire car so no issues all round & enjoy a walk on holiday. The measure I always use is - Would we go back to same Villa , same resort etc & I can honestly say yes to both. Great choice for eating and good variety of bars etc. in main resort.

Burntwood Couple
Lovely villa in a nice quiet area. a short walk into the nearest town with plenty of shops and restaurants. The pool area was amazing!
only negative was that during the evening and night it was quite hot and stuffy when we were trying to sleep as the fans provided didn't make much difference. (and that was December) air con would have made it much more comfortable especially during the warmer months.
would definitely return. fab holiday!!

Couldn't have asked for much more. Only a couple of minor issues stopping this from being a perfect 10.

East Sussex Family (the eldest child is at school)
The only positive thing we can say is that the pool area was lovely and well maintained - everything else needs big improvements. The beds are the most uncomfortable we have ever experienced so a good night's sleep was never achieved. On arrival there were only enough towels for 2 people however this was rectified by the rep by the third day. The shower head in the en-suite did not work and despite a man coming to look at it ( he explained it would need to be completely replaced) the situation continued throughout our holiday. The living room furniture was so uncomfortable and could hardly be considered user friendly - annoying throws and when you tried to sit on it you just slipped towards the middle, so most of the time we just used the hard dining chairs. All of the above could be rectified quite cheaply and simply - an Ikea suite would not cost too much and more supportive mattresses rather than solid cheap ones would make such a difference. Sorry for such negative comments but this did spoil our holiday somewhat and we would never go there again.

Croydon Family (the eldest child is at school)
The villa was fantastic. Beautiful decor, the landscaping was breathtaking. It was so quiet, all you could hear were the crickets at night time. We had such a peaceful time by the pool, making the most of our BBQ. The rooms were spacious and each had their own closet. The kitchen was spacious and allowed us to store all of our food and drink.

Northampton Family (the eldest child is at school)
Overall, still nice but some of the furnishings, sofas, sun loungers etc are looking a bit tired. Could do with a refurb.

Welcome addition of wi-fi but connection speed is pretty slow (although this may be down to the ISP, connection issues on the island itself etc) rather than the villa itself.

Some really sharp wooden corners in the bedrooms (the edge of the bed, shelves etc) really need sorting - not a great idea to have shoulder level shelves without any substantial corner/edge protection on them.

BBQ is great and we like the fact that the owners have provided small quantities of dishwasher tablets, washing powder, tin foil, baking sheets etc - saves you having to go to supermarket and buying tons of the stuff you're not going to use.

I cannot wax lyrical enough about the villa. Good size, clean, nice quiet area. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Diss Couple
Lovely quiet villa. Had everything we needed and more. Comfortable modern furnishings--new appliances-plenty pots/pans etc and satellite TV for basic English channels. outside area very nice with bbq and lovely pool. The villa was a bit of a walk into main town of caletta de fuste but with car it was fine with plenty of free parking. Nearer was the atlantico shopping centre which had a very good large euro spar supermarket. The only negative was during our 2 week stay the villa was not cleaned. The maid came after a week and only changed beds/towels.

Nottingham Family (the eldest child is at school)
Lovely villa but in need of some general maintenance ie pool lights not working, outside lights, electrics tripping if you had both the water heater & washing machine on at the same time. Villa now having WiFi was a bonus. Pool was cleaned twice during our 2 week stay & although bedding and towels changed, no cleaning was done.

Bexhill-on-Sea Couple
The villa was everything we could have asked for. Situated half way down the east coast of the island made it easy to drive to both north and south ends of the island to explore further afield. We loved the facilities of the villa, especially dishwasher, english TV programmes and outdoor living spaces with super BBQ. We would certainly go back to El Descanso again with no hesitation.
