We chose the location because we got a great flight offer. I would never have picked Málaga for a relaxing break but on turning to sawdays.co.uk, I found a couple of options within easy reach and this is how we chose Rancho Sentosa. We were lucky, we had the place to ourselves since the other apartment wasn't booked. We were... More

With just two ground floor apartments (Vanessa lives above) you have the pool and gardens,( more or less, to yourself.) surrounded by luxurious mature planting. There is a bar area with barbeque and covered seating for your use. We stayed in the traditionally styled, Rock apartment( a tad smaller than the Pool apartment) having a large bedroom with wardrobes and... More

We like the southern part of Spain. Especially Nerja, Sevilla, Tarifa and Granada. We were always a bit hesitant to go to the costa del sol. Too touristic with too much concrete buildings. Although we enjoyed our week there (Malaga, beaches, Marbella, nice hinterland) we came to the conclusion that it is very touristic, but that we found our safe... More

We have just returned from 5 nights at Rancho Sentosa and are struggling to adjust back to normality. This place is a haven, so peaceful, relaxing and beautiful. Vanessa and Slavik are wonderful hosts, incredibly thoughtful, never intrusive, and managed to make us feel as though we had the run of the place, whilst still providing everything we could ask...

Just spent 5 nights at Rancho Sentosa - what a beautiful place, even better than it looks on the website. Vanessa and Slawek are perfect hosts, there when you need them but extremely discrete. The chiringuito is a bonus and we were more than happy to spend our evenings there listening to great music and drinking far too much wine.... More

I really can not think of anything bad to say about Rancho Santosa. We only booked for 4 nights, when it was time to leave we didn't want to.

Vanessa and Slawek were brilliant hosts and were there when needed them but at the same time let us get on with relaxing when we chose to. They have thought of everything and the appartment was fantastic, really well equipped and tastefully furnished. The location was also great and we could explore the surrounding area with ease. highly recommended!

Ranchos Sentosa is a great place to relax in peace or explore the cultural surroundings. The property is conveniently located, near enough to the coast, but far enough to escape the hustle and bustle. The gardens are lush, green and well cared for – bushes of lavender, close the pool, rosemary and other herbs let off wonderful scent. The apartment... More
