“5 STARS! Fantastic villa, great amenities and location”

person found this review helpful

Just returned from a week long holiday at the Villa Carmela. The villa is exactly as it appears on the website. It has everything you could want in a villa & more. It comfortably accommodated 6 adults & 2 infants. Was spotlessly clean & well maintained. Restaurant, Spar & communal play area within walking distance. Beaches & resorts a short drive away. Great, attentive, customer service. Would return & recommend in a heartbeat.

“Fantastic and beautiful villa”
Reviewed February 19, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Carmela. It's a beautiful place to stay with views of the sea. The kids loved getting in the pool each morning and afternoon and the beach was only a drive away. We went in February and we had more than enough sun and warmth to sunbathe and go to the beach. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment so we cooked a few nights and ate out a few nights. Overall we had a very relaxing time. I'd definitely stay there again.

“Fabulous villa”
Reviewed December 2, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This villa is very tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished. Everything was immaculately clean, and its position at the end of the complex makes it completely private.
We have stayed in a number of villas on most of the Canary Islands and this was definitely my favourite due to the overall standard of the accommodation and the facilities on site.
There is a very well stocked supermarket and an excellent restaurant/grill less than 10 minutes walk away.

The weather during our visit was absolutely perfect - sunny and hot every day (we were there in November) and when we wanted a change from lounging by our own heated pool, we could either wander up to the larger communal pool or walk to one of the two beaches within walking distance where there are many more restaurants. We found the taxis to be extremely cheap, I suppose the distance was pretty negligible, but you wouldn't want to be walking home in the dark.

Overall I'd have to give it 10 out of 10 for quality and communication with the owner who was always quick to come back to us in response to any of our questions. Loved it.

It's location is porbably the best on the complex with uninterrupted views over the golf course and the sea in the distance.
The owner kept in contact via email to ensure everything was as we expected.

“'Does what it say's on the tin' ... and much more.”
Reviewed August 20, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The Villa looks fantastic on the website, but is even better in real life! We stayed as an extended family of 8 people recently, with an age range of 12 to 70. Each of the family found it very easy to relax and switch in to holiday mode in a short time of arriving. The Villa is amazing and the surrounding views are both calming and beautiful. The Villa is first class in its attention to detail around the furnishings, layout and equipment provided. We are regular visitors (15+ years) to Gran Canaria / Anfi, and have already recommended this Villa to all our friends and family. We found we were more than happy to spend time in the Villa, however did venture out to the local Spa, restaurants, including Amadores which are all within easy reach. Plus my brother and I got an early morning round of golf completed within this stunning location!. In addition to this the response, service and communication from Ger was second to none, during the booking right though to our time in the Villa.

“Luxury villa in a tranquil setting with scenic views”
Reviewed April 24, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The villa was a luxury modern home from home with everything you could possibly need. When we walked in it was breath taking. Fantastic well equipped kitchen. TV was brilliant with hundreds of channels and movies. The private heated pool was stunning. On site Spar and resturant was good. We went to a couple of restaurants that Ger recommended which were fantastic, taxis were cheap and easy to use going out for an evening meal. Ideal for families of any age.
We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go again. Highly recommended.

“A Real Gem!”
Reviewed March 16, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

If you are looking for a getaway villa, that is both breath taking and relaxing, then this is the place. This villa was so enjoyable with the outdoor pool and the unobstructed view of the ocean. It has huge sliding doors that allow the inside of the house to be totally open to feel as though you are outside. The breeze from the ocean will definitely put you into a state of relaxation. The rooms are big and each has its own luxury bathroom. The villa is equipped with towels and bed linens, plus a washing machine. The television was set up and receives channels from Brittan, Germany, Denmark, France, Norway, Sweden, and the US as well as Spain. It is also a smart television that gave access to You- Tube TV and the internet. This allowed us to listen to the BBC top 20 while we used the pool. The towns of Puerto de Mogan and Puerto Rico are a 10 minute drive in either direction, giving access to day trips and Amadores Beach is less than 5 minutes. The Tauro complex has a restaurant and grocery store along with a community pool. This villa and complex was really top notch and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a higher standard vacation that was both family friendly and enjoyable.
