“Luxury oasis”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

DDG Retreat is a secret gem in Spain! My husband and I came here for part of our honeymoon and I'm so glad we did. We stayed in Casa Pino and it was perfect. They have literally thought of everything we would need to be comfortable. The infinity pool at sunset is amazing, and the food was absolutely delicious! There was no need for us to venture out very much because we wanted to soak in the experience there. I would highly, highly recommend booking here!

Liked best: The infinity pool, the room, and the food
Liked least: It's a little far from everything, but that makes it more private and quiet too!

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Simply, heavenly beautiful !

We rented the Villa Los Olivos through DDG Retreat for 1 week to celebrate our honeymoon. It was a perfect choice.

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by Alex and Olga who guided us to the villa. The villa is equipped with everything (literally everything). The rooms are clean and spacious, the decor is so elegant and the villa is completely private.

The pool is awesome ranging from about 20 cm to ~220 cm. The water was always cool even in hot days.

The area is very safe and quite. The view is breathtaking as the villa is overlooking the green mountains and the sea can be seen far away above the horizon.

As for reaching the villa, having a car would be very handy as the villa is located above the mountain. I had a 1.2 L Opel Corsa which did the job without any problems. The engine was good enough for the steep area and the car had good ground clearance. Having a GPS would be very handy to reach DDG retreat.

The nearest supermarket is about 1 KM away in Casares (5 min by car). There are various restaurants located on the mountain and in Casares too.

The villa fits perfectly either for a couple or a family.

Thank you Alex, Olga and Daria for the wonderful stay. I'd definitely come again !

“away from the hustle and bustle!!!”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just returned from 2 day break at Casa Oleandro. Brilliant weekend of relaxation. Great facilities, wonderful hosts and weather was spot on too. Accomodation was just what we were looking for with ample space inside and outside.
Had dinner on both nights - wonderfully prepared by Olga.
already planning a return

“Fourth time,Still amazed”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have just had our fourth trip to the retreat. Amazing place. We went for 3 days. Weather wasn't great but the pool is heated and the sauna and steam room more than made up for it. We are already planning our next trip with some friends. If you need to get away from stress and relax in a beautiful secluded place with amazing views and hospitality above and beyond what you get from a 5* hotel then this is for you. I can recommend the home made mojitos! Not to mention all the home cooked food which is top class. All in all its worth every penny!
