We exchanged into Villicana through club la costa and weren't dissapointed. We were given a 3 bedroomed town house opposite the smaller pool, halfway down on the North side. The grounds of the resort are beautiful, full of colourful and beautifully kept borders etc. Our townhouse had a private outdoor area with seating, loungers and buit in BBQ (which we used on 2 occasions). The ground floor consisted of an open plan kitchen area, dining area and seating area with lots of storage. The second floor consisted of our double bedroom, which was huge, with an ensuite bathroom. The third floor had the two twin rooms and the additional bathroom. The appartment was immaculate and well equipped. We found all of the staff to be very friendly and helpful.
We didnt use the small pool outside our appartment, mainly due to the selfish quests (who despite MacDonald notices saying not to leave towels 'reserving' sunbeds as they would be removed, which they weren't!) who almost filled all of the beds routinely in the morning before the pool opened with their towels! However we actually preferred the larger pool further down the complex which had the sauna, steam room, indoor pool and larger outdoor pool with small jacuzzi. Lots of sunbeds and parasoles and really helpful pool guy.
We hired a car and had no problem getting around, visiting many places during the week we stayed. Definately recommend a car if staying in this resort as supermarkets etc would be a pain with public transport or taxi's. Had read peoples issues with road noise and can honestly say it didnt bother us in the slightest, all of the resorts are based off of the main road and therefore are always going to have some element of road noise.
Would recommend visiting the smaller beach in Estepona which is within a cove and has a shallower and calmer waters edge, the beach is just past the marina at Estepona, driving through a big car park area or drive out through Estepona and head in from the other end. The restaurant on the beach on the East side was excellent, cant recommend their mixed fried fish enough!!
We deliberately went out of season with 16yr old and 20yr old and 70yr old granny and loved the fact it was quieter.
