4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My first impression of the unit wasn't very favorable - the tired decor, bleach smell and tight spaces didn't feel very welcoming. We had a 3 bedroom unit (#45), downstairs was a kitchen, living room and tiny bathroom that should have been a closet, a large master with an en suite on the second floor and another bathroom, two tiny...

Perfect in every way. Pretty, well kept and good position. Two bed town house with small garden at no.7 where we stayed. Heard the motorway noise slightly but not annoyingly. Pool areas both clean and plenty of sun beds through the day. Shame about the empty hotel complex to the rear of Villacana as looks a little scruffy towards the... More

We stayed for two weeks in a two bed apartment with roof top. Lovely views of the sea, the accommodation and resort grounds are in beautiful condition, we loved the small town of Cancelada where there are some very nice restaurants. We spent a morning walking the beach to Estepona 12km along the beach which is fine as there are... More

Lovely resort. Everything you need. Great Staff. Where can I start .... My family and I have been coming here for 10 years and it's still improving.

Villacana Resort was in perfect condition this year and looked picture perfect. Staff were very helpful and provided excellent service. The gardens were manicured to perfection. Weather could not be faulted - hovered around 40 all week! The apartment had had some improvement made and the pation furniture was all new - and very comfortable.

Faultless, well maintained, excellent facilities , magic staff, large well appointed rooms, good restaurants on site and nearby - especially Gregorios. We have stayed at many resorts between Benalmadena and Estapona and this wins hands down. The old town across the road is a bit tatty but quaint. Would have no problem recommending this resort

Perfectly maintained, amazing gardens, great staff and good eateries within walking distance. Have stayed at many resorts in Spain, but this is the best - the rooms are enormous well equipped, lots of marble, crystal and all that you may require. 10 out of 10 Macdonalds, I thought nothing would better Doña Lola in Mijas, but this does!

Stayed here for a family holiday early June. Accommodation has everything you need and is to a high standard. Food on-site reasonable but not great. Good pool facilities. Our apartment was in a courtyard area which although quaint, I was disappointed not to have a view. You have access to the beach from the complex also which is handy. Good... More
