I do not normally write reviews but Las Rosas was so good, I have made the effort.
The view from our villa's terrace was stunning: a wide expanse of clear blue sea edged by giant cliffs and colourful flowers. The atmosphere on site was relaxed with a bar overlooking a large pool and good quality loungers. The manager was friendly and helpful (when our DVD player didn't work he arranged for it to be replaced quickly; and he also confirmed our transfer home for us) and it was only a short walk to restaurants (a bit quiet for me but that's just my personal taste) and the supermarket.
There was a full time lifeguard who, however, was very strict and I do not think we got our safe deposit back but these are minor niggles and I do not wish to detract from the overall very positive experience.
Finally I should mention the very best part which is the natural sea pool (signed natural piscine) which is a very short walk away and was almost visible from our terrace. Do not miss going down there when it is high tide to see the waves crash into the naturally formed sea pool. Spray and foam high and ferocious! My husband and son stood on the wall (you would never be allowed to do it in England because of safety) and enjoyed the exhilaration of the waves knocking them off into the frothing pool. If you prefer a more sedate experience go at low tide and just swim in the pool which is then calm.
