Exceptionally nice, immaculate,spacious apt. Highly recommended with no reservations. The only detail is, they say the staff is fluent in English, NOT! The continental breakfast included, could benefit by slightly later hours. The kitchenette is complete with all you need to cook in, if you wish to do so. Will definitely stay at Villas Del Rio again. This is our... More
