“Fabulous Town House - Great holiday!”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Myself, husband and our two boys (13 and 10) stayed at El Palmeral for 10 days. Evior, the owner, was quick to respond to emails and very accommodating of our requests. The directions from the airport were good and we arrived from Malaga in about 50 minutes. Parking is available on the street directly outside the house. The house was easy to find, cool, clean and welcoming when we arrived. It is situated in a residential area of similar properties and some huge villas! About 25% of the people at El Palmeral are permanent residents and there was a mix of people; English, French and Spanish.

Within minutes the boys were in the pool (taking with them the inflatables that were in the house) and having a great time. There are 47 town houses that make up El Palmeral. Some houses can access the pool from their property, some like Evior's require you to go through the locked gate to the pool. This was no problem. The two pools were large enough to muck about in for the kids. Both were fairly deep - I noticed very young children went to the top pool and played near the steps where it is more shallow. There are sun loungers around the pool. There was only one day where we could not find enough sun loungers for us where we wanted to sit and one day where we were the only people at the two pools! It was never really busy or ever really noisy. The gardens are well maintained and very peaceful. My husband used the gym and the boys used the table tennis table once.

The town house itself was great for us. On the ground floor is the kitchen, utility room, dining area and living area with a balcony outside onto the road (which is really quiet). Rather than clear all kitchen cupboards as many owners do, tea, coffee, herbs and spices, washing up liquid, etc was left and this was a big help. On the first floor were three bedrooms, one en suite, and a bathroom. They all had air con - it was a bit fierce in the smaller bedrooms - but no real complaints.

Going up another level is the roof terrace with a table for 6, two sun loungers and potted plants. Here we had breakfast and when eating in, dinner. Views great. Very nice. This is where you get wifi (standing by the dish) but wifi much better by the pool area.

When we arrived the TV did not work. We emailed Evior. The next morning at 10.30 am Jackie came with a new flat screen TV! Thank you.

We had a great holiday. Ate locally sometimes, lots to choose from, went to the Saturday market, visited Ronda, walked down to Puerto Banus, made trip into hills to visit pretty village and relaxed.

Thanks Evior.

“Fantastic family holiday”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We rented a house on EL Palmeral high season 2016. The property was a large beautiful 3 bed house that was very well equipped (including all working kitchen appliances and air conditioning in all bedrooms) and is best described as a home from home. There was lots of space in the house to chill ie lounge, patio area and roof top garden. The shared gardens, and terraces were all well kept and the two pools were fabulous. The owners were very helpful in all aspects of booking the house and even helped us find the property very late at night The location is great and has supermarkets and good restaurants nearby. It is about 25 minute to the centre of Puerto Banus or you can get the bus 1 euro each or a taxi for 5 euro
I would highly recommend this property to families with teenage children as my boys loved the pools and the table tennis table. We also really enjoyed Puerto Banus the beaches are great and there is lots to see and do. Would not hesitate to go back to El Palmeral again and thank you to the owners Keiron and Evor for sharing their lovely holiday home via trip advisor x

“Great place, pool fantastic. Wld go back”
Reviewed 6 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Wow.
What a great holiday. Communication with owners was great. The pool although not heated was the perfect temperature and there were inflatables around the pool to borrow. We brought 2 for us but left them there for the owners and other people to enjoy. Played table tennis or went in gym. House was lovely. Just too hot and pan very heavy!!
