“El Nido - El Nirvana”
Reviewed 19 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The most used item in the house was the tray from the kitchen with the picture of the Jazz Quintet so we could ferry our drinks and food to the terrace. We never ate indoors all the time we were there. If you went to a restaurant with those views you’d say “wow” and this reaction never abated. Some of us would rise early to watch the wonderful sunrise. And then the moon, you’d see it behind the palm trees, glimmering away on the calm seas.
This house is perfect for families, or even a family with accompanying grandparents as they would have their own hideaway in the accommodation downstairs and yet be part & parcel of the fun.
The pool is the greatest asset and the youngster spent so much time in it. Adults too. The joy of a private pool where you just use it at will. No locking up apartments to go to a communal/shared pool and those niggling issues like what to do with keys, mobile phones etc. You go in and out of it on a whim.
We loved the old town. Great bars & restaurants and abundant tapas – in this area tapas are still free with each drink you order. And do your research and find the nicest tapas places because the newbies might only serve a bowl of potato crisps or a few olives but the best ones have really tasty offerings. It’s a very honest town. No overcharging. The newer part of Almunecar (which I am calling the beach development with promenade, shops, bars and restaurants) is very family friendly but our hearts always drew us to the old town area. Great supermarkets with fresh produce, lots of butchers, some fish shops and greengrocers if you prefer smaller shops. There is a terrific market on Fridays in Almunecar. Teenagers could amass a new summer wardrobe for the price of an A & F tee shirt and have a morning’s entertainment from the chase of a bargain.
We have some experience of renting holiday accommodation and this place is excellent, not overlooked and a very comfortable house. When it gets hot and it was very hot at the start of June this year, there is plenty of shade around the villa. The pool and gardens are maintained to a very high standard. You will need a car but having said that it will spend a lot of its time in the car port. I have no hesitation in saying it was a truly memorable holiday and I hope Anna will consider us as tenants again!!!

“Perfect house and location!”

The house is perfect. Clean and very well maintained. Views are amazing!!! At the beginning we were little bit afraid about the steps around the house but it adds so much charm to the house. The pool is perfect size and in June it was warm as in the bath. Almunecar is perfect town if you go with family, is big enough with all you need but is not crowded. We'll visit again!

“Amazing Views and Villa”
Reviewed 12 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Wow an amazing view from the moment you park the car in the garage!!
We arrived New Year's Day and stars for the first week of January. The local beaches were quite as you would expect but warm enough for us and the kids to spend everyday on the beach and enjoy the sea.
A few minutes in the car and your in the town, easy to find the local supermarket and shops.
We cooked in one evening and the kitchen etc was more than ample for our requirements.
There are so many amazing restaurants in the town and along the beachfront.
El Nido had a great view from the breakfast table overlooking the beach area, and the pool looked very tempting but we preferred the beach as the kids could play in the sand.
Would definitely recommend El Nido, and we will certainly be looking to come back in the summer at some point to take advantage of the water park situated along the beachfront.
Thanks for an amazing week!

“A place with a view”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Although the car had the best view, the views from the house were nearly as good. Simply stunning! Outdoors there were a couple of sitting areas that were so neat and peaceful that you didn't mind the noise coming from the children in the pool area. Indoors the layout suited us very well with the 4 bedrooms of which one was on a separate floor with its own entrance. The bed I slept in was a little too short and I'm not that tall (1,90 m). It was a necessity to have a car unless you're keen on walking up and down very steep slopes. We did it a few times and it was ok, but outdoor temps were in the low 20ies. In the summer it would have been tough.

Thank you for enjoying El Nido!

Spanish beds are a bit shorter than Northern European beds as Spanish people are shorter too :-) A couple of tall friends have mentioned this to me in the past :-) I hope you didn't get cold feet!

I'm glad your kids were making noise! That means they were having a good time!!

I hope you'll come back!

Best,
Ana
