Very child friendly with lots of activities (primary reason we go back) 2. Some of the apartments are very comfortable...

We have been going to Villacana for the last 23 years and it is time for a review ! It is mature, self catering style, resort that, despite its age, just maintains such high standards. The accommodation is ever upgraded and the gardens are its crowning glory. They are a plethora of smells and beauty and their cultivation can only...

Shared a self catering apartment with friends. Just the right size, well equipped and with a nice balcony. Very relaxing stay - pleasant grounds and cafes/bars one of which is right on the beach with views down to Gibraltar. Plenty of places to visit roundabout - Gib, Ronda, Estepona, Marbella, Puerto Banus etc etc.There is a small onsite supermarket and...

We've been coming here (also used to own at Leila Playa) and all the other Macdonald resorts for the best part of 25 years.Villacana remains a nice resort with lovely gardens and the apartments well maintained. We stayed in the lower section, nearer the beach, but sadly the apartment was very, very dark and you needed lights on virtually all...

Well kept large accommodation, beautiful grounds, pleasant staff. Ideal for those looking for a relaxing break in a quiet location, but near enough to the larger resorts. Only a few minutes walk to beach, and five restaurants close by including one on site. We had a roof top terrace, ideal for soaking up the rays, or barbecue lunches. Only downside...

First the Resort: This is a lovely resort with flowers, plants and trees everywhere there is a smell of jasmine in the air most evenings. The resort is clean and the public parts are well kept. It is lovely wandering through the courtyards as you go down through the resort to the swimming pools there are fountains throughout the resort....

Having recently visited the above resort I had to write a review! The resort was very typically Spanish with beautiful flowers and plants everywhere and lovely ornate fountains and statues. The houses were clean, spacious and comfortable and the pools were lovely and it wasn't crowded. (Probably the time of year) There were some nice typically Spanish villages nearby with...

My first impression of the unit wasn't very favorable - the tired decor, bleach smell and tight spaces didn't feel very welcoming. We had a 3 bedroom unit (#45), downstairs was a kitchen, living room and tiny bathroom that should have been a closet, a large master with an en suite on the second floor and another bathroom, two tiny...
