“Good - room for improvement”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

Okay I'll start this review with what I think most people (and owners) want to here - would we stop again - Yes we would.

Now a little more detail.....

Good
-------
The property is very large with a great big living area which also has a dining table, our children loved it and allowed us to have a grown ups sofa and children sofa etc.

The washing machines / tumble drier multiple fridges / freezer etc all worked great. An iron is also there - top tip pack less and make use of the machines to clean.

The property is in the hills of Marbella so not much passing traffic or people around at all.

Pool is large and plenty of outdoor seating / space.

Most of the property overlooks a golf course so again no disturbances.

Bad / Poor / Room for improvement
------------------------------------------------

This property is next to a motorway, it didn't bother us as we are townies with busy roads by us at home - but those seeking tranquillity may not appreciate it.

Wifi is provided but it is woeful - websites struggle to load and you have no chance of streaming anything.

TV Satellite doesn't work, and other channels pick up is poor. I really hope the owners get a new dish it can't be that expensive?

There are 40 steps down to the property - this wouldn't be suitable for disabled or those that may struggle - no lift so do consider you have to carry your bags down and up!

I think the property states sleeping for 12, in reality there are 4 real bedrooms, only 1 of which has a proper double bed, 2 bedrooms have ensuites. There is a 5th bedroom which is a kind of annex with 2 beds, this also houses the washing machine / tumble drier and 1 fridge and is next to the kitchen - not a private room by any means. If you are travelling with different couples / families the one that gets the true double bedroom with ensuite will feel like royality - but others may feel short changed having to push odd height twins together in the other rooms.

There are some cracked tiles around the pool and a maintenance hatch for the pool (with a 12 foot drop) is covered but not locked. Some of the wooden furniture should be replaced.

Hot water runs out in the mornings and we had 5 adults stopping.

Summary
-------------
You have to consider when thinking about staying here that the price was 5 times cheaper than any other villa we could find in the area. Yes the road is there and there are the steps but generally you really get a lot for your money.

Part of me really wants to ask the owners to give the property a good once over, I'd be happy to pay more to stay next year if they could fix the broken bits add a 2nd double bed and improve the Wifi / TV etc. A real improvement would be if the pool could be heated, this would move the property up a league without doubt.

If you are a complainer or a perfectionist do not stay here. If you have kids but are not capable of watching them do not stay here. If you are looking for a bargain and are happy to put up with a few quirks (that you probably have in your own home) then you will enjoy this place.

“A most beautiful villa”
Reviewed 21 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Villa Rio Real I a beautiful spacious villa set in a beautiful location. The views over the golf course we're tremendous.
The nearby road can be noisy but I forgot it was there the next day as I became oblivious to it.

“Great villa, great service, perfect weekend away.”

I was at the villa with 10 friends for my friends hen weekend. Jose was there on our arrival and couldnt be more helpful showing me around and how things worked and also took us to the local supermarket so we could get food and drink.The villa was so clean and tidy too, great layout and loads of space for all 11 of us. Had everything you could ask for, well equiped kitchen although we didnt cook. Garden area and pool is beautiful, especially at night when its lit up. Great view of the Rio Real golf course.

Overall everyone of us had a great stay and already discussed possibly returning on a girls weekend away in the future.

Thank you so much Jose and Eva
