A masterpiece of creative architecture, Villa Xian packs quite a punch. From the entrance, its sugar-cube exterior belies the light-filled interior with its huge picture windows and clever lighting effects. Everywhere you look you’ll find another fascinating and unexpected detail, with Buddhist statues lit by sparkling chandeliers and state of the art home cinema system competing for attention with soothing tropical fish.

The spacious ground floor living room is bordered by floor to ceiling windows, elegantly dressed to create a cosy ambience for movie viewing, with vast leather sofas inviting you to stretch out and chill. Behind the dividing wall housing an eye-catching fish tank, the dining room is a beautiful space to enjoy delicious home-cooked meals with friends and family, with its highly polished square table, leather seating and sophisticated lighting.

The ultra-modern kitchen is superbly equipped with high quality appliances, gleaming granite worktops and a striking island unit with hob and funnel-style fan. Along with one of the villa’s five splendid bedrooms, the living room and dining room form a U shape around a delightful outdoor seating area, shaded by a timber framed canopy and with both a ramp and steps leading down to the fabulous walled poolside area.

Creative use of space has facilitated a unique private pool with a swan-style fountain, in-pool bench seat and a swimming channel running alongside the house. A gently sloping ramp with handrail allows for easy access to the water while sun lovers will appreciate the lovely teak loungers around the pool.

A brick-built barbecue and sink unit in one corner provides all you need for some simple outdoor cooking – sizzling steaks, flavourful sardines or the catch of the day from the market, washed down with an ice cold beverage. A charming timber and bamboo gazebo houses a large dining table so guests can linger in the shade over a leisurely lunch.

The bedrooms at Villa Xian have been individually styled with thoughtful attention to detail. On the ground floor is an enchanting double with a four-poster bed, a pretty twin bedded room and a third sporting bunkbeds that will delight younger guests. Two superb shower rooms, one en suite to the double room, incorporate hydromassage showers and modern vanity units with twin washbasins.

Upstairs, two sumptuous en suite rooms complete the picture, one boasting a four-poster bed and a hydromassage shower, the other with a Jacuzzi bath. Patio doors from each lead out to a huge first floor veranda where a football table, dart board and table tennis table will provide hours of competitive entertainment. There’s also a deluxe hot tub with colour-change lighting for the ultimate indulgence.

Through the master bedroom is yet another surprise element to this outstanding villa: a private gym with a range of cardio and weight training machines, yoga mats and sauna, so there’s no danger of missing out on your training routine.

Last, but certainly not least, the little ones in your group are well catered for with a cute little paddling pool, toadstool fountain and brightly coloured play house accessed through the ground floor room with bunks.

If you’re travelling in a group with a variety of ages, Villa Xian is simply perfect. And if your group is larger than ten, Xian’s sister villa, ‘Buddha’, is just across the road, accommodating a further 12 guests in similarly luxurious comfort, ideal for a celebratory holiday.

Ipswich Family (the eldest child is at school)
We had a lovely time at Villa Xian with our families, with all the mod cons. Kids loved the pools and little house, although the mushroom waterfall didn't go off at night so was quite noisy when trying to get to sleep. We did raise this with the owner but it never got rectified whilst we were there.

The location is great, and not as built up as others have suggested, we found it very quiet the area. There are some nice bars and restaurants within 10 minute walk from the villa, and the local bus service is right on your doorstep if you want to explore other parts of Playa Blanca. Would highly recommend the Marina, which has lovely views and restaurants and bars.

Only negative things I can say about the villa is the gym equipment wasn't very good, squeaky and not very well maintained. And the floors in the villa weren't cleaned very well, but this maybe due to the dust from the wind so hard to maintain.

Overall a lovely villa, and would definitely come back to the area again.

Edinburgh Family (the eldest child is at school)
Easilly the nicest villa I've rented. The villa is furnished to a very high standard and the layout was perfect for our needs. I was holidaying with 2 children and 3 adult couples.

It's in a residential area of playa blanca but there is a frequent buses to the beaches/marina and taxis are very reasonable.

There is a local shop and some nice local bars on your doorstep.

We were very tempted to rebook for next year but there is no availability in July or August. Which is no surprise!

Congleton Family (the eldest child is at school)
We had a wonderful time with our family. The children loved the pool and the playhouse. There were a few things that could have been better. The instructions for the hob,oven,TVs and hot tub were insufficient. The outdoor sitting area was very comfortable.
The adults loved the gym with fine view towards the sea.

Loughborough' Group
Excellent villa. Beautiful decor and good layout. Gorgeous pool. Enjoyed the hot tub.
High tech news quality appliances. Tv difficult to use with numerous remote controls that did not match the instructions in the James information folder. We also had issues with the hot tub both on arrival and half way through holiday that resulted in maintenance visiting. James staff responded when called and maintenance arrived quickly. Villa windows needed cleaning and floor of barbecue area not as clean as it should be. Otherwise excellent villa. Will definitely rebook

tonbridge Couple
Initial impressions of this Villa are great.
Our experience was not as great as first sight:
I do wish websites would be honest about the outlook of their advertised villas - this villa is heavily overlooked and lacks any sort of privacy and for the price paid this is not what is expected.
No remote for one of the TV set boxes - eventually replaced on the Friday.
Incorrect information in Villa folder for use of TV in main lounge
As is usual in the Canaries very little English TV
Blocked shower resulting in flooded bathroom (ground floor) reason for blockage - no cleaning of the drain resulting in the usual 'items' from previous occupants blocking it - in fairness we did not report but rectified ourselves.
Hot tub leaked on the Friday night into ground floor bedroom and Kitchen resulting in Kitchen lighting not being usable.

Attendants do visit on the Wednesday to do Pool etc

On the bright side they let us have a 12 noon checkout
