We stayed in Villa Especial at the end of June for a week. The villa is huge and well laid out and the garden and pool area and just fantastic with lots of seating and dining areas to choose from. There are several sunloungers around the pool as well which were really comfortable. We all had a go at table tennis tooo! There was a wonderful welcome pack waiting for us which meant we could chill out on our first night with nibbles and fizz!! The cupboards were stocked with all the essentials which was an unexpected bonus. We were also left a tub full of toiletries to use in case we had forgotten anything which was really thoughtful. There is a supermarket a few minutes walk away (mercadona) which was ideal and very reasonably priced. Just be aware it is closed on a Sunday so if you arrive on a Saturday make sure you get enough supplies!! The bedrooms are all ensuite (except the top bedroom) and all huge with massive comfortable beds. All our towels including pool towels were provided as well. The pool was lovely and clean and our children spent most of the day playing in it! We discovered a lovely little park behind the mercadona which had a pond and play areas for the children. It was too hot during the day but ideal for after dinner! It’s a brisk 20 minute walk to the centre of the old town which is definitely worth a look as is the beach front with lots of bars and restaurants. There are lots of taxi ranks everywhere and was only around 6 euros for a taxi back to the villa. We went out a couple of times at night but really once you are in the villa you won’t want to go out as it has everything you could ask for!! Catherine who owns the villa was really helpful from our initial enquiry right through to after we left the villa and was always really quick at responding to emails. We hope to visit again one day!
We have just returned from a weeks stay in Villa Especial. There were 6 adults and 4 children. The villa provided everything you could possibly need for a week in the sunshine of Marbella. Everything you needed was there. We arrived at 7.30 p.m. and the excitement of our 4 grandchildren at seeing the lovely pool was just something to behold. All 5 bedrooms were unique in their own way and we felt extremely comfortable for the duration of our stay. Having the supermarket so close was a huge bonus. We did find that with 4 wee ones the 30 minute walk into Marbella in the heat was just manageable but taxis were needed on the return journey as it is uphill all of the way. My daughter who did the booking dealt with Catherine who owns the villa and although I personally had no contact with her, she went out of her way to make sure that everything possible was done to make our stay in her lovely villa an enjoyable one....thank you Catherine. I would most definitely recommend Villa Especial to friends and family. Just bear in mind that it is 30 minutes walk to the restaurants and bars of Marbella .
This was a beautiful villa and is aptly named as it is indeed special. Lovely layout with a relaxed feel. We went there over new year and had lovely weather. Loads of space in all rooms and the outdoor areas are really spacious for relaxing. I can only imagine how nice it would be in the summer.
The games area was well used and was a gr8 asset to our enjoyment.
From the moment we booked I must say that the owner was hands on and kept in touch. There was a fantastic welcome pack and all the team on the ground were courteous and professional.
We had an issue with the pool heating and everyone went over and above to sort it. We got a refund even though the fault was unavoidable and we appriciated this as we felt that the team did all they could to fix the problem.
All the family had such a gr8 holiday which was due in a large part to this beautifully villa and the attention to detail of the owners and the team on the ground. We hope to be back to enjoy it at some stage. Book it ypu will not regret it. Thank you Villa Especial.
Villa Especial is a beautiful and very spacious villa for 10 people. The location is very convenient for walking to a large supermarket. Some of our party walked into the Old Town but generally we opted to walk to the bus station and get taxi's to wherever we wanted to go, (the bus station is a very easy downhill walk). A taxi into the old town from here was under 7 euros. The heated pool was great as we had sunbathing weather everyday. The owner responded quickly to my emails prior to travel and we had no need to contact the manager during our stay as everything was in great condition during our stay. I would not hesitate to recommend Villa Especial and hope to return again to its comforts and explore more of the Marbella area.
This Villa is absolutely amazing!! Booked for a joint 40th. Arrived to find champagne and birthday cake with 40 candles and lots more! So clean and tidy. The owner and her team were excellent. We will be rebooking!!! Thank you x
This villa is absolutely amazing, so much so that we've booked to return next year. From the moment we booked Catherine was so helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble. The villa is spacious, clean and a fantastic layout and the welcome pack on arrival is an added bonus. The walk down to Marbella is approx 25 mins, and the supermarket up the road is great. If you want a 5* villa in the heart of Marbella then look no further, this is the one. We can't wait to return and highly recommend booking.
