“A beautiful villa so quiet and peaceful , well equipped kitchen , so much indoor and outdoor space . Only downside the water pressure was not great so the shower and taps did not run very quickly . Would go again !
The living room wall could be toned down , no one wants a sand view that close up !!”

Overall we were happy with the villa. It was large enough for a much bigger family and did represent good value for money.
Only minor things to improve really:
1. The villa had a bath in the ensuite to the master bedroom but the villa's low water pressure made it impossible to run a bath, rendering it useless. 2. The swimming pool was extremely cold and we struggled to use it as a result. I think the owner my need to run the heated facility for more of the year to counter this. 3. Games console in the upper games room only had one controller and no recharge cable so limiting its use. 4. Stereo in the main living room had no antenna fitted.
You really do need to be happy with the villas somewhat rural setting as everything is a drive away not a walk.

Whitley Bay Family with 2 adult
We had a fantastic holiday. Amapola is in a lovely position with great views. Plus points - Helpful rep. Wifi useful. Lovely accommodation. Negatives - Gravel on driveway meaning poor access to the garage as too big a lip to put hire car in the garage. Sofas need updating or cleaning.

Lovely villa in a quiet location with amazing views from the poolside. A/c in all the bedrooms and english tv channels in the lounge for when you need to get out of the sun. A garage to keep the car in the shade and a fully functioning kitchen/fridgefreezer and washer. Good wifi signal in every room with good download speeds. Pool is a little small and shallow but ldeal for kids (deep end is 1.4m) but is nice and clean.

Newquay Cornwall family with teenage girls
Lovely spacious Villa in rustic and beautifully peaceful setting. The Villa was massive and there was plenty of room for our family with everything we needed. The Welcome Pack was a great gesture and was extremely "welcome" after our long journey. The pool area was clean and the pool was lovely and warm for swimming. We really loved this Villa and would definitely rebook. The WifFi is really good and can be used anywhere in the Villa. There was only a couple of minor things that were a slight problem in that the showers in both en-suite and family bathroom were virtually a "trickle" and if the main bathroom shower was being used then you could not use the en-suite as there was only one drip of water coming out of the shower head. We also tried to use the bath but unfortunately with the water flow problems it would have probably taken up to an hour to fill. Just take care in the en-suite if you are not particularly mobile as the design to get in and out of the shower was quite tight as there is a bidet located directly as you get out. Obviously this is just a design fault and didn't ruin our stay in any way, but just wanted to warn other users. The only other minor niggle that could easily be rectified for future guests is that in the main bedroom the sheets didn't really fit the bed so in the morning we were virtually lying on the mattress with sheets everywhere. Some well fitted sheets would be really a good idea. Word of advice - Lajares does seem to have quite a few mosquitos so would advise taking plenty of repellant and after bite creams! However if you are reading this please don't let any comments put you off, this is an amazing Villa with some breathtaking views. The pool area is a sun trap and we really didn't want to leave. We would definitely book through James Villas again, such amazing value for money and excellent customer service through their sales team - so nice to talk to friendly and helpful people! The flights booked through Thomas Cook were brilliant and the inclusion of a free car for the week was probably one of the best ideas ever - thank you James Villas for a fantastic holiday! We will be back!

Bristol Family (the eldest child is at school)
To be clear this is a really lovely villa, really quiet and perfect if you want to get away.
I could go on about the good stuff as there's tons of it - but I tend to find people just what to know how to get things even better. So here goes.
A couple of things that would have made it even better.
The water pressure is non existent. Showers are all but impossible and a bath would take about a week to run.
Sofa is very uncomfortable, and plastic chairs and table really let down an otherwise wonderful villa.
Pillows on the bed also like sandbags. The beds good just need some alternatives for the memory foam monsters.
Now that is it.
Really the only little things that stop it being perfect.
Would happily recommend and have done already to friends.

Beautiful villa very well equipped. Only negative was its close proximity to other similar properties - could be noisy in the summer months.
