We had a wonderful stay at Leila Play Club. We loved everything about the facility. We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment that had everything we could possibly need, to include a clothes washing machine. The on-site restaurant was very nice, also. We didn't actually eat in the restaurant, but we got takeout from there several times and the food was...

What a little gem of a find! Fabulous apartment, amazed at the range of facilities in the kitchen area (washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, etc) clean and tidy and was a lot bigger than we expected. Ate at the bar area several times and the food was of a great standard, seafood risotto was a huge portion, I couldn't eat...

We had owned at Leyla Playa since it was build in around 1988. However, we never visited and used our timeshare for exchange. This year we decided to give it a go and we were not disappointed. From the outset we were made to feel welcome and were even upgraded to a larger apartment; we had a two bedroom close...

This is a fantastic resort for a relaxing holiday. Our apartment was immaculate and well equipped. The garden area is beautifully maintained and the beach is just minutes away. If you choose to eat out there is a restaurant on site and it serves good food. This is our second stay at LP and can't wait to go back !

We had a 2 bed, 2 bathroom apartment overlooking the pool and the evening entertainment area. The apartment was great, well maintained and equipped. Loads of towels both for use in the apartment and in the pool area. Location was just off the busy A7 but secondary glazing had been fitted and it was effective. I was not too keen...

The moment you turn off the busy coastal road at Callahonda you enter a different world. Leila Playa is small, compact and ideal for a relaxing stay. The accommodation is excellent, clean and beautifully maintained. Wherever you are on the site you are close to everything and the immaculately maintained central garden area is a delight. The pool is small...
