This year we stayed in Villa Padierna to participate in the San Juan festivities around June 23rd, which always is celebrated with a exquisite dinner party in their magnificent beach club. The hotel provides transport to the beach club with its own mini-bus shuttle. The staff and the quality of the food and the service at the beach club is... More

Did two nights here and played flamingos and amancil ? It exudes the exclusive feel from the moment you arrive. Service is an example for five star rating. Food excellent . Golf courses are quiet but would be somewhat challenging for high handicappers especially amancil (not sure of name). That was extremely challenging/tight. One would want to be very straight...

We ended up checking out after only one night, the room we were promised was given to someone else, air con did not work in the room we had to take, house keeping came to turn down beds and put...

From the moment I arrived, the hotel service was a disgrace. I've never been so furious in my life at a hotel's service. Ruben , The manager on duty -- was not in the hotel. When an issue arose -- they connected me to his broken cell phone. He said he would call me back - never did and then... More

My partner and I visited again this year and it was even more a citing than the last, our room was so amazing we felt like rock stars. We hope to visit again soon. Try a drink on the terrace or enjoy breakfast with the added touch of a bird handler with his own eagle !

Villa Padierna is everything you should expect for a five star stay. Check in is smooth and efficient and we were escorted to our room by a very kind lady from the front desk. Our room was large, well equipped with a very large south facing balcony equipped with sun loungers, tables, a settee and chairs. Complimentary water and a... More

The hotel was very well presented with interesting furniture and art every where you looked including the room. We had the Villa Padierna suite which was very spacious and well presented, the bathroom was massive with a good powerful shower, big bath, two big sinks and a separate toilet. The bars and restaurants were very good in both service and... More

The hotel is beautiful, setting idyllic, but what really makes the stay are the great staff (especially Patricia). Whether you are a golfer or not this is an interesting place to stay. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.
