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.

Hinckley Couple
Beautiful villa, tastefully furnished and well equipped. The outside area was really special with a lovely warm swimming pool, spacious terrace and excellent quality sun beds, dining and occasional furniture. Although just the two of us were staying , there was ample space for six people.
Located within easy walking distance to a shopping centre and a longer walk along the coast into the centre of Caleta.

Oldham Couple
Beautiful villa, very clean and situated in a lovely position. Very quiet area yet handy for local shops and restaurants
Already booked to go back
Would have been nicer if didn't have to vacate the villa so early especially when your flight is later at night but appreciate why. There is however a little storage room where you can leave your luggage til 4pm
