Lovely apartments! We stayed in one of the studios as there were only 2 of us. This consisted of a good sized bathroom, a large kitchen (oven, 4 ringed hob, microwave, kettle, fridge, freezer, toaster), lounge with sofa bed, double bed, dining room table, tv then a patio with 2 sun loungers and table and chairs, looking to the pool....

Excellent location with great sea views from terraces. Accommodation was really good, extremely spacious with everything you require supplied. There were even 4 or 5 English tv channels, so you don't need to miss your regular programmes. Nice touch with the barbeque on the terrace, cleaning staff cleaned it out for you after each use. The whole complex is select... More

Calm and quiet (keep in mind kids are around) and with a breathtaking ocean view from each one of the Villas terrace. Outdoor conditions are really perfect for a day at the pool or a meal with a great view. However, this family owned resort is getting back in some important things such as Wi-Fi, TV service, matress quality, kitchen... More

We have been twice, excellent location, peace and quiet. The apartment has everything you can possibly want. Everyone is very helpful and it was totally hassle free. Even the wifi was reliable.... not always the case when the service is free.

We have stayed here probably 8-9 times over recent years, depending on the numbers in our family group. Yes the villas could now do with a bit of refreshing but they are still clean and perfect for a quiet holiday, especially outside of school holidays when you are likely to be the only ones around the pool. We have watched... More

I found the location of the villas to be quite tranquil and nice. However, if you are looking for quality amenities I would not recommend. Wifi could only be accessed from the outdoor patio (when it was working), and the television had only 4-6 working channels. The upstairs bedroom had mattresses that felt like hardwood. When reception was told about... More

Our 3rd trip to Rufino - another longer one planned in July and the townhouses are still the best . Beds have been upgraded and double swapped to the larger front bedroom - only slight gripe is that the room is big enough for a kingsize bed so not sure why hoteliers still insist on buying the smallest beds especially...

We stayed at Villa Rufino for the second time in a row. This time 8 days end of March, beginning of April 2014. Despite of the very bad weather (we experienced everything except of snow :-) ), we had a wonderful time in this great house. We discovered many small and beautiful hidden beaches just a few kilometers away from... More
