We returned Villacana (our home resort) after a break of six years having exchanged our week for Tenerife/Gran Canaria, due to not being able to guarantee the weather in Southern Spain in October. Villacana remains the best timeshare accommodation I have been to. The gardens are beautifully maintained and the properties appointed to a very high standard. The extension to... More

We have been staying at Villacana for the last 25 years and have always enjoyed our time their however MacDonalds Resorts are now proposing to change the whole way the resort ownership is managed and as a result owners will not necessary be able to stay in their own apartments, particularly if your appartmwent is in the much better Southern...

Thank you for your comments. The proposal to all owners is to move the Club from its current fixed week ownership to a more flixible points based Club with a built in exit mechanism. You will have a home resort priority booking window to ensure you can book youir home resort if you do not wish to go elsewhere. For... More

I have just returned from Villacana again and as usual it was great. I have read some of the previous poor reviews and can only think these people did not stay in the same resort as us. We exchanged our week this year and my only complaint was the weather was hotter than we expected. We normally stay on the... More

Decent bars on site and more wee bars as you walk along the beach area. Across the motorway bridge takes you into Cancelada which has Great pubs and restaurants. 10mns drive to a good... More

Thank you for your positive feedback about our resort. We are delighted that you still enjoy coming to our resort. Your comments about the restaurant will be passed to the third party operator. They have only recently taken over the restaurant, so there may still be a few teething problems. More

Although they would have you believe they are in Estepona, the resort is miles away from this beautiful town. Unless you have a car, you are barely good to go anywhere. Being a true Scottish chain, they blatantly make money off you at every turn. You are charged heavily for very average lodgings. To add insult to injury you are... More

We were very surprised by your comments about our Villacana resort as we very seldom receive negative feedback. We apologise if our staff were not welcoming and of course we will address this with them. All our Spanish resorts charge for electricity and the amount is based on a meter reading. I must finally point out that Villacana is only... More

It has been a few years since my last visit - and the resort has improved quite a bit. My apartment was nicely furnished and the courtyard had all that was needed to enjoy the sun and privacy. There was a welcome drink - much welcomed in the heat - and the staff were very pleasnt and very helpful. There... More

We enjoyed staying in the Villacana Resort in Estepona and the grounds were absolutely immaculate and beautiful with bougainvillea overtaking the resort. The accomodations were lovely townhomes with two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs and fully equiped kitchen and living room. The wonderful part was the courtyard in the back with a brick BBQ.
