I needed a week to just relax in the sun and this was perfect. I had been to Villacana before some years ago and I do not feel it has changed very much at all over the years, which isn't a bad thing! The thing this time I liked is the fact they have extended the grass area by the... More

This is the 2nd time we have visited this resort. The apartments and the gardens are the best but the entertainment and the restaurant are below par. The entertainer for week 1 at end of June sadly had very poor dental hygiene and the proper entertainer returned from leave but was hardly visible, although when seen was very jovial. Her... More

Our one bedroom apartment may have been one of the smallest on the site and on first sight not best placed nearest to the main road, but it was delightful. Being on the ground floor it had a reasonable sized garden in which we could dine at a table with four chairs then move to the two sun loungers under... More

Even though it was placed by a dual carriageway with the beach on one side and the village the other side, there wasn't much noise and the restaurants were a short walk away. The pool area and local supermarket were close by too. Very nice for a short break.

The whole complex is maintained to a very high standard. The court yards and gardens very beautiful. We stayed in an apartment on the ground floor with a private terrace. I would recommend this over a roof terrace as it was possible to have shade and easy access to kitchen for drinks. The pool areas and surrounds was not busy... More

Have been visiting the resort for years and can say that it is one of the best kept places we have visited. Loads of great places close to visit and eat. Not great if you have teenagers looking for nightlife but good if you are looking to relax during the day but want to eat out at night.

We had a lovely week. Lovely result that was maintained beautifully. It was a little isolated but incredible selection of restaurants nearby, spoiled for choice. Local bus service good and reasonably priced. Lisa the entertainments lady was really friendly and nothing too much trouble. Loved our apartment, furnished to a high standard and had a nice roof terrace. Three pools... More

I visited Villacana in January and stayed in a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment which was beautifully fitted out but far too large for a solo traveller so on this occasion I occupied a one bedroom ground floor apartment and was lucky enough to be in a corner position which enjoyed the sunshine in the morning and for a large...
