“Fantastic đź‘Ť”

This is an amazing villa to spend a holiday at. From start to finish perfection. We were met by the owners Pedro and his wife Isabel they showed us around and are lovely. The villa is breathtaking the photos don't do it justice. The BBQ area is out of this world. I videoed myself walking round the villa from the front door through the grounds to the bedrooms on the upper terrace level, the video is 4 minutes long and it's the best way to see the villa and grounds, it's a shame I can't put on TripAdvisor as I said the photos don't do it justice. My only concern before arriving was the barking dogs mentioned in other reviews. No need to worry. Yes dogs are barking most of the time but it's not that bad. To make things better Pedro has spent a lot of time and money setting up the villa with very good visual and audio equipment. He has sonos radio set up to play in the villa and pool area so you can choose any radio station from wherever you come from playing in the background throughout the day, you don't notice the dogs. We never heard them at night with the air con on. We're already planning to return with more family members. Thank you Pedro and Isabel for allowing us to share your beautiful home. Looking forward to seeing you again. Xxxx

“Lovely villa, and charming owners, but there are points to consider before booking.”
Reviewed January 24, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Villa La Atlántida is a spacious, well furnished villa, with charming owners. We were welcomed on our arrival by Pedro and his wife, Isobel, who showed us around and were just so helpful and friendly, giving us advice on places to eat and visit, and leaving some delicious cakes and provisions in the fridge for our arrival.

The villa was spotless, rooms spacious, with lots of places to chill and relax within the grounds. Oranges and lemons on the trees already, and we were able to pick some during our stay! The villa is well lit at night and the undercover Bar BQ area was great too. Pool was also fabulous, and again, spotlessly clean. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were all spacious with good en-suite facilities.

A couple of points to mention which unfortunately put a slight damper on our stay were the dogs that barked from the other side of the valley. Because it is located in a rural area, local owners appear to keep a lot of dogs in compounds, and they are obviously unattended for long periods hence the frequent barking. The compound on the other side of the valley must have had a small pack of hounds as they all started barking at the same time at very regular intervals throughout the day and night. The last night was particularly bad as there was one dog that just didn't stop all night! I did read other reviews and this was mentioned, but its not until you are there that you can really know whether it will bother you or not. We are country people and used to animal noises, but this was a bit too much for us at times.

The other thing to note is the rural location, which means you would definitely need a car, and walking to the nearest town either Ingenio or Aguimes is very difficult due to narrow roads (no pavements) and very sharp inclines. We did enjoy the villa and visiting the island, we had a lovely fishing trip from Porto Rico, which we would highly recommend. Also visiting the caves nearby was interesting, as well as touring to the north of the island and seeing the spectacular scenery. Thanks to Pedro and Isobel for making us so welcome and for the warm weather which was a very welcome respite too from the -2 degrees we had left in the UK!

I appreciate your words of support for the work Isabel and I try to do in the village. But even more thank you for your presence and that of your family and for coming to enjoy a week of birthday celebration for your daughters. We are always trying to give the best services in our accommodation as the new air conditioning of the pool. The house is very well located near the airport and that allows to know many parts of the wide island of Gran Canaria. It is also possible to know the charms of the two municipalities that surround us (Ingenio and AgĂĽimes). There are even walking routes if you want to travel a few kilometers, with tours of less than 5 kilometers knowing the secrets of the area. This depends very much on how you want to use your time, as there are many corners and much history that we are still discovering ourselves on this wonderful island and its people. We would also love to be able to keep track of all parameters outside of ourselves, but that sometimes escapes our control.We will seek inspiration to find even the solution to these details, because in the rural environment that we are, we must know how to make ourselves understood with the other people who live in the valley and thus achieve that everyone can enjoy the unique environment in which we find ourselves.This is a special place in which for many years many aboriginal people have chosen as their natural stay.
Isabel and I give you many kisses and hugs to all your family (Richard, Ollie, Anna, Hatty, Alex and you, Vicky) and we hope to welcome you soon with new beautiful surprises.

“Our wonderful stay at Villa La Atlantida”
Reviewed June 9, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a wonderful stay at the property.
The owners were great and very accommodating and did their very best to make us feel welcomed. We were provided with some snacks at our arrival and great tips for trips and tours on the island, so that we could get started immediately, which was great given our short 4 day stay.
The property has everything you can wish for with WiFi, flat screen TVs, Xbox Kincect, a great sound system and also a great big barbecue space, a wonderful pool, two entertainment rooms... Everything is kept wonderfully and with a lot of love for detail. The kitchen is fully equipped and has all sorts of spices, oil, etc. Everything you'd need to provide for yourself.
We were there with 8 people, and barbecued with 12 and there was lots of room to hang out.
The location of the property is also quite convenient as it is only 10-15 mins from the airport and everything on the island can be accessed quickly by car.
We would absolutely recommend to stay at Villa La Atlantida and will certainly come back.

“Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed May 24, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We chose Villa Atlantida partly because of its close proximity to the airport just a ten minute taxi ride costing about 15 Euro. Our group consisted of 3 couples and 2 babies. The villa, gardens and pool area are extremely well equipped and maintained to a very high standard including pool towels. The outside BBQ area is fantastic and we used it most evenings. The bedrooms are spacious and very clean and comfortable with towels provided and a hairdryer. There is a choice of social space, patio area, BBQ area, lounge and games room. 2 large, flat screen high tech TV’s and good internet access. Our choice was to self cater as we had 2 babies with us. The kitchen is very well equipped including a dishwasher with everything you need even various herbs, spices and cooking oil. Situated up a hill away from the town centre a car is very useful although taxis are easily available and not expensive. The village centre has 2 good supermarkets and a great butcher. The villa is terraced and built into the rock overlooking a most marvellous valley with beautiful night time views of the church. But what makes this beautiful holiday destination even better are the owners Pedro and Isabel . When we were booking we had a few questions and a wish list. 2 cots. 2 high chairs......blah blah blah.... Pedro answered quickly and provided everything that we needed nothing appeared to be too much trouble and he was very happy to oblige. Our group was travelling from 3 different destinations so our arrival was staggered but Pedro and Isobel were there to get us settled in with a warm welcome. The following day they popped by with a home baked cake and to make sure we were all comfortable. Lovely people! We would defiantly recommend this place for a relaxing, comfortable holiday destination away from the tourist hype.

I greatly appreciate your words of support for the work that Isabel and I try to do in the villa. But more still thank you for your presence and that of your family with your beautiful grandchildren.

We expect and hope that we can share other nice moments with you to return to our villa and so you enjoy both the villa and the island of Gran Canaria, which holds many charms.

Isabel and I will send many kisses and hugs to you and your lovely family.

“A beautiful villa, with welcoming owners.”
Reviewed November 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

My parents rented this villa for our family to have a holiday together in October. In total there were seven adults and two children (aged 2 and 5.)

The villa itself is beautiful and clean with plenty of space. Every couple was able to have their own bedroom, and my two kids were able to share a room next door to ours.

The kitchen is huge, with a table and chairs, as well as a television and two sofas. There is a fridge/freezer which has plenty of space. The kitchen also has a dishwasher, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, stove top, and a small oven/grill for cooking pizzas and fish fingers etc. You're not meant to drink the tap water, so we always had large bottles in the kitchen for drinking and for using when brushing our teeth (this might have been excessive but we weren't sure exactly how safe or unsafe the water was.) The owners, Pedro and Elizabeth had provided us with a large jug of water at the start, and a frozen pizza in the freezer in case we hadn't had any food, which we thought was very kind of them. We also found a variety of spices and seasonings, along with salt, pepper and sugar, and tea and coffee.

The main part of the house also has wi-fi.

The swimming pool was large, and clean, although a bit cold for most of us, however the owner has been researching ways to warm it up and is planning on having that sorted out soon. There is an outdoor shower, and a pool room with a sink, toilet and washing machine (no dryer.)

The outdoor BBQ area is lovely, and a great place for large groups to sit in the evening whilst cooking steaks or chicken on the BBQ. The table is enormous and the view of the nearby town of Aguimes is stunning, especially with the church lit up at night (my two year old son loved this.)

There were two bedrooms on the main level as you enter the property, one with en-suite and one without, each had one double bed. There is also a bathroom with shower just off the kitchen which can be used by whoever is in the room without the en-suite. The rest of the bedrooms are up a set of stairs which runs along the outside of the house, leading up to a stunning rooftop courtyard with a lovely little fountain, and lots of mature trees. Up there we had three bedrooms; the purple room, the yellow room, and the green room.

The green room was where we put our two children and barricaded the en-suite door so that the two year old didn't get up to any mischief. There was a double bed and a small single bed in the room.

The yellow room was a bit dark due to there not being many windows - only one small window way up high, but it had two double beds in it, and an en-suite bathroom with a shower. The room also had a wardrobe with hangers to put your clothes away.

The purple bedroom was lovely, it had two double beds, each in it's own "separate" room (There was only a door sized gap between the rooms, but no door that you could close to complete the separation - same with the bathroom!) The bathroom was huge and very nice, complete with a bathtub with a shower head, two sinks, a toilet and a bidet.

Also on the upper level there was a very large living room type area, with a very comfortable sofa, a table with a few chairs, a fireplace, and toy play area for kids.

Between the 9 of us, we had two rental cars which we picked up from the airport (only about 10 minutes away from the house) and we found that we had to drive most places because of the heat and the kids, although one day we did hike down the hillside into the valley below the house, and across into the town of Aguimes, which was lovely. For the most part we used the house as a base and traveled to various places on the island.

My only two somewhat negative notes about our stay were that a few of the nights we were woken very early due to dogs in the valley barking quite loudly, although this could not be helped by the owners, so we can't fault them on that, it's just worth noting for future guests who might not be very heavy sleepers - possibly keep some earplugs on hand!

The other thing that I feel I should mention is for those of you who have very young children, the house is right on the edge of a steep valley with some very dangerous drops on the other side of the fence. Most of the fencing is quite sturdy, but there is one area near the fruit trees and BBQ area, that just didn't seem safe enough and I had to keep a very close eye on my two year old son whenever he was wandering around that area.

Overall our experience was fantastic, and if we ever decide to visit Gran Canaria again, we would gladly stay at this villa.
