Villa Lillia is beautiful. It was spacious, clean, and not to mention has an amazing pool to lounge during the hot sunny days! Tracey was very responsive and helpful and I highly recommend staying here! It is between old and new town and about a 5-7 euro ride to each.. Which is awesome. Dimitri who was the house manager was a bit hard to get in contact with, but all was sorted out. Only downside was that there was no hand soap at all, in any of the washrooms. I'm not sure if this is just typically how the airbnb's or vacation rentals in Spain are, as the place we stayed at in Barcelona also didn't have hand soap. All in all, a great stay!
Lovely spacious villa, even bigger than appeared on the photos, with plenty of bathrooms and also spotlessly clean on arrival. Perfectly situated within walking distance of old town (approx. 20 mins) (or tourist train to new town) and the local supermarkets (approx. 15 mins). No need for a car as taxis or buses are also very accessible at the end of the street if too hot to walk. Garden area surrounds the villa and has plenty of loungers/chairs available for sitting in the sunshine next to the lovely pool. Would love to visit again.
I stayed in this villa with a group of girlfriends – 8th – 12th June 2017. We all found the place to be very clean, well equipped, bright and spacious. The outdoor areas were perfect – suntrap by the pool, shaded at side with table near BBQ. Lovely views from the master bedroom. WIFI throughout. 2 large fridge freezers. Any small issues we had were dealt with exceptionally quickly by the man they have managing the place. Location fabulous too – taxi to either new or old town E5. We also benefitted from a local taxi company that had a mini van that could accommodate us all – she was very reliable and took just E10 to town.
If I had to made a couple of very minor comments that would have made it even better it would be:- more, larger glasses for long drinks, BBQ to be made available coals in order that it could be used as required, more plastic plates etc for using outdoors, small tables for use around the pool (we kept spilling our drinks when they were on the grassy area!), and definitely more towels (we had just one bath and one hand each – we don’t want to be doing washings on such a short break). Finally this is the first place (villa, apartment, hotel, cruise) that any of us in at least 10 years have been that don’t supply poolside towels - with the restrictions on luggage now, poolside towels would be a great addition.
I’d give this villa 99% and will definitely be back – and recommended highly to other friends. Seriously – if you are thinking of this villa, book it, it’s fabulous.
We have just come back from a weeks holiday ( 6 adults and 2 children). From the moment we booked, Tracey was very responsive and helpful with any questions we had. The villa itself is fantastic, spotlessly clean and massive! So much bigger than it looks on the photos; with more than enough room for our family and two active little boys! We were met by the key holder outside the villa at nearly 1am as we had a very late flight in, but he still spent lots of time showing us round and explaining everything, we also had his contact details so that we could ring if there were any problems during our stay- when we couldn't get the oven working he came straight round to help! thank you Dimitri!!
The villa is fully equipped with everything you could need, a good wifi signal and speakers so that music can be played in all rooms including the outside pool area.
We loved the pool, again brilliantly clean and twice during our stay someone came over to check it. Loads of available outside furniture and lovely sun beds, BBQ and plenty of space. The pool area gets the sun all day which was lovely, there is also a separate table and chairs just outside the kitchen which is more shaded if you wanted some time away from the sun.
The villa can be kept cool by electric shutters on all the windows but there is also air conditioning in all the bedrooms. There is massive amounts of wardrobe space and plenty of bathrooms so no one is waiting around.
The villa is a 15-20 min walk ( or €5 in a taxi) to the beach and old town square which is fantastic for families. I would highly recommend " O Catraio" restaurant in the old town just off the main square, we wish we had found it earlier in our stay. Aldi and Lidl are also near by for shopping.
The only small thing I would suggest is that some bottled water is in the villa when you arrive, as we arrived so late there were no shops open.
We had a fantastic holiday from start to finish and would definitely recommend it and book again!
Our family stayed here for a week, 6 adults and 2 children.
We were on a late flight in and were given the key holders number to phone from the airport ( he was at the villa when we arrived) rock plenty of time to show us round and explain everything. We had his number to contact him if we had any problems during our stay. We did have a very minor problem on the Sunday afternoon and bless him he came straight round and the problem was sorted quickly and efficiently.
The villa is big and had plenty of room for our whole family. It was very clean with spotlessly clean bedding. Although the mattresses and pillows have seen better days and are probably ready to be replaced. They were all very clean. The kitchen was very well equipped with copious amounts of cutlery, crockery and glasses. The dishwasher and washing machine were in good order.
Wifi signal good. There are speakers in all rooms and outside for music.
The outside space is fantastic with a BBQ, lots of garden furniture and plenty of sun beds. Also a large umbrella for a bit of extra welcome shade.
The pool is very clean and even though it's not heated our family had loads of fun in it.
A pool maintenance man came twice during our stay cleaning and checking it. Brilliant!!
Aldi and Lidl are a 15 minute walk and the beach and old town are about 20 minutes walk. Taxis are quite cheap between€5/6 from beach to villa.
We used Yellow Fish Transfers who I would highly recommend. Prompt and efficient service. They kept in touch with us before our trip and during. We had a flight time change the day before we left. A quick email and everything was sorted. Excellent service. €80 return.
We will definitely book this villa again if we return.
Myself and a group of 7 other girls stayed here last week. The villa is fantastic, so much space and very clean. Big bonus is having your own pool. Location is brilliant, within walking distance of restaurants and the strip. Taxis are also very cheap and there is a number in the welcome pack. Supermarkets are within walking distance also but our airport transfer stopped on the way to the villa and let us pick up supplies. Everyone had an amazing time and have even said they would come back with their own families. Will definitely visit again!!
