These villas are excellent. If you want a quiet, peaceful and relaxing holiday you won't be disappointed This is a small gated complex with about 20 villas. They are spacious, are kept very clean and are in pristine condition. The view from the balcony is fabulous Because there are so few villas we had the most peaceful, relaxing holiday. Ten...

We could not fault our villa it was clean and had everything you need for a self catering holiday. The patio area is spacious complete with sun longers, table and chairs, bbq, pool view and sea view. The grounds are well maintained with plenty of loungers around the pool which is also very quiet. Rufino will not disappoint

Lovely apartments! We stayed in one of the studios as there were only 2 of us. This consisted of a good sized bathroom, a large kitchen (oven, 4 ringed hob, microwave, kettle, fridge, freezer, toaster), lounge with sofa bed, double bed, dining room table, tv then a patio with 2 sun loungers and table and chairs, looking to the pool....

Excellent location with great sea views from terraces. Accommodation was really good, extremely spacious with everything you require supplied. There were even 4 or 5 English tv channels, so you don't need to miss your regular programmes. Nice touch with the barbeque on the terrace, cleaning staff cleaned it out for you after each use. The whole complex is select...

Calm and quiet (keep in mind kids are around) and with a breathtaking ocean view from each one of the Villas terrace. Outdoor conditions are really perfect for a day at the pool or a meal with a great view. However, this family owned resort is getting back in some important things such as Wi-Fi, TV service, matress quality, kitchen...

We have been twice, excellent location, peace and quiet. The apartment has everything you can possibly want. Everyone is very helpful and it was totally hassle free. Even the wifi was reliable.... not always the case when the service is free.

We have stayed here probably 8-9 times over recent years, depending on the numbers in our family group. Yes the villas could now do with a bit of refreshing but they are still clean and perfect for a quiet holiday, especially outside of school holidays when you are likely to be the only ones around the pool. We have watched...

I found the location of the villas to be quite tranquil and nice. However, if you are looking for quality amenities I would not recommend. Wifi could only be accessed from the outdoor patio (when it was working), and the television had only 4-6 working channels. The upstairs bedroom had mattresses that felt like hardwood. When reception was told about...

“All rooms have a sea view”

“All villas have a balcony and terrace (with bbq, loungers and table) which look out over a green landscape towards the sea and sunset. Villas are on two levels but there is a sloping path to the pool and reception area if you don't like steps. I suppose villas higher up don't get as much sound of kids playing by the pool but noise isn't really an issue here anyway”

“Some terraces of corner apartments are shared with the neighbors. They might walk over your terrace to the pool. The 2 apartment blocks are shifted. You have morning sun in the part until apartment 14 I believe. Just minor details. In summer it doesn't matter at all :-)”
