During our recent trip to Europe, in Spain my wife and me stayed at MacDonald Leila Playa Club. It was arranged by my long time friend Trinidad whose bar is just opposite the place. The club has only serviced spacious apartments with all the amenities. We look very much forward to visit again. Easily 5 stars *****

We have owned a time-share here for 9 years, but decided llast year to end the contract. Our visit here is our penultimate year, for reasons of conflicting priorities. However, we really will miss coming here. This is a lovely resort, with such a feeling of community. The facilities are second to none, and the staff so helpful and obliging....

Leila Playa was great to say the least. The staff were helpful and friendly with any and all requests. We had a beautiful view of the Med coast,also boardwalk at our leisure. The market, restaurants ---everything close to the resort. I would highly recommend this resort.

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.

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.
