Assuming this Villa Bali is the one located in San Marcial De Rubicon area....your nearest supermarket is located in Calle Las Palmas....about 400m distant ......as to bars there is a small very Spanish locals bar next to the supermarket........restaurants and more cosmopolitan bars are located in Marina Rubicon (about 20-30 mins walk 1,5km distant) or Playa Blanca itself (about 40-45 mins walk 3km distant).

This villa is located in a residential area of the town quite a way from beaches,shops,bars restaurants etc. so would advise a car would be useful to access the full range that the resort can offer.....there is a bus stop at the end of the road (no.30 Playa Blanca circular bus every half hour between 0630-2200 hrs fare 1,30€ per person per journey) or alternatively the taxi fares are about 3€ -3,50€ to Marina Rubicon and between 4,50€-6€ to town depending on where you go.

It could be in the block of apartments just were the mountain starts to rise in the distance you can make out the tower of the Dream Castillo hotel on the right with Sandos Papagaya beach hotel next to it further right and papagaya beaches beyond them both

Hi this villa looks lovely would of rented myself but it was booked at the time we wanted so would love to hear what you think of it after your hols

We have rented 7 villas in the past 2 years in playa blanca all in different areas but they have all been very good no problems with the owners on communication obvoiusly we have our favourites. it is very quite up the las colarados end but you have a very good supermarket (ropers) a sports bar and couple of pizza/cafe bars. We took the bus into playa blanca when we wanted to 1 euro 30 each they are very reliable we used to get off at the bus station and just walk down to the front (couple minutes) then jump in a taxi back around 4 euros if in town you must visit the old mill irish bar live music everynight good atmosphere and mostly english people just find a table sit down and the waitress will be along to take your order there are many great restaurants in playa blanca and sea bass in sea salt is one of the best dishes in my opinion hope you have a great time and hope to hear your review of the villa on your return
