This villa is set in a convenient location for the amenities the resort offers. The complex is well maintained; it feels safe and secure with all exit gates key operated – it is in a quiet location and within the complex itself there is minimal noise most of the time.
Along the far side of the complex and across the road is a small convenience store, a couple of bars and somewhere to eat. The water park (which we thought expensive at €25 per day) is a very comfortable 10-15 minute walk away, close to the top of the main tourist strip down which the larger shops, bars and restaurants are situated. The nearest supermarket is only about a 10 minute stroll away too on one side of a fairly small shopping centre with more bars and restaurants. The beach we went to was near the harbour and was about a 20 minute walk away.
Casa Donn is a well furnished villa and has everything you will need. There is a washing machine (should you choose to use it), a reasonably well equipped kitchen with a large fridge freezer and dishwasher (again, should you choose to cater for yourselves). The entire villa is very spacious and clean with plenty of storage space for clothes and personal effects. It comes with a safe to keep your documents and other small valuables secure and blackout security shutters on all the patio doors. There is plenty of outdoor space with a choice of terraces both front and back plus one on the roof with great views of Lobos and Lanzarote one way and the sands of the National Park the other.
The owner, Barry, met us when we arrived and showed us around the villa and also told us a bit about what was where in the resort. He lives on the complex and was available to assist us for the few things we needed to ask him about.
The biggest issue we had was the wifi. First of all, you have to go to a shop just down the road to buy it and then wait for the service to be enables. At €15 for 15 days it is cheap but unfortunately for 5 of us (three aged between 16 & 21) it proved quite slow especially at peak times. We would have been happy to have paid a little more for a better service and would have preferred it to be available as soon as we arrived.
The townhouse apartment was very nice with modern fixtures and fittings. Internet TV, comfy beds and blackout security shutters on all the patio doors.
Everything in the villa worked and was well maintained.
The surrounding areas are immaculate with gated pools for kids safety.
Quite strict rules at the pool areas but this is obviously to maintain a high standard.
Barry, the owner was very pleasant and helpful.
The location was good with only a short walk to supermarket and around 15 mins into main centre
Apartment could do with some plastic glasses/crockery for pool area and kids to use other than that all good.
I would recommend this place to friends and family and would book again in the future
This villa has everything you will need and is very spacious and clean and set within a great location. Everything is in wlaking distance , shops bars restaurants and the beach and also has a lovely pool on the doorstep. The owner is always on hand for any problem that might crop up and will offer to pick you up from that airport.
We booked dates between Dec - Jan, therefore a lot of the places are closed, the Wifi is chargeable @ 5 Euro per week can be weak at peak periods, good all round security exists on the complex, Barry the owner dealt with any queries we had fairly quickly.
This villa is exactly as described.
It is very spacious on all floors with lots of space for storage of clothes etc. It was clean and tidy and the minor issue with the wi-fi was dealt with very quickly and efficiently (it was nice to have the full attention of the kids without them being on their phones during that time!!). Having outdoor patios together with tables/chairs both at the back and front of the villa as well as outside the front upstairs bedroom, allowed us to chill out either in the sun or the shade as we wished.
The complex was very quiet with 2 large pools and 2 kids pools which were just what we needed to cool down from the sun. No loud music or screaming kids. We felt very secure being there because access to the complex required key entry.
It is a short walk to the nearest supermarket and local shops, and about 10-15 minutes to the main street where all the larger stores and restaurants are located - There was a broad choice of restaurants and cafes . The water park is within walking distance too and this summer cost €25 per adult per day, but after 2pm was €20.
Would definitely recommend to others who want a relaxing family holiday in the sun.
