Room: It's well equipped with a plasma TV (with plenty of English channels), microwave, filter coffee maker, hairdryer, cd player and a selection of books. There is free WiFi, but it's intermittent and you're more likely to get it by the pool than in your room. There's no shortage of mirrors and there's plenty of storage space & hangers, but... More

I understand that not all the timeshares are the same, but I have nothing but good things to say about the one where I stay. It is spacious and has everything you need.I love having a private patio for morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. The grounds are beautiful and expertly maintained. The pool and beach area are... More

We have been timeshare owners since 1978...and in all that time have never experienced a property that charges you for your electricity....come on that is ridiculous. The resort itself is very nice, staff is excellent. Location a bit remote. I also have a problem being charged for Internet service. By the way during our stay no English language tv due... More

Had a week in october in villacana, the weather was still hot enough for sunbathing, swimming and walking along the beach to the chiringito in the evening. The grounds are beautifully looked after and the bougainvillea smelt lovely. All the bars were still open with 1 having entertainment every evening. Our apartment was on the ground floor , less than... More

Stayed here for one week in November 2013. We booked a 2 bed apartment which is on 2 levels, open plan kitchen diner lounge on ground and 2 beds upstairs. The whole resort is very well looked after, clean, tidy, modern. Our apartment was very well equipped with full kitchen including dish washer. We had a small private courtyard with... More

This resort is owned by McDonald Hotels and was at one point mainly a time share resort and the standards are very good. We had booked a one bed apartment that sleeps 4 persons. It had a private roof terrace which was equipped with sun beds and table and chairs. The kitchen is in the living area but is not... More

We've owned a Timeshare week at Villacana for over 10 years but having changed to the points system we've been visiting Macdonald hotels and resorts mainly in Scotland and sometimes in England. We decided this year we'd enjoy the sun in southern Spain and were thoroughly pleased with our experience and stay at the resort.

Have just spent 2 weeks in Villacana, been going there since 1986, the magic of the resort is still as special as it was back then! The restaurant's food has improved since our last visit in 2009, and we had 2 lovely meals there. The staff were lovely and helped with anything, the entertainment staff are just lovely, particularly Lisa... More

Booked this through RCI and was very surprised at the quality of this resort. We have stayed at Macdonalds places before but this was the first time in Spain and the resort is much better than their UK places. The grounds are very pretty and the whole place is quiet, just right to relax. The bar is well stocked and... More
