We celebrated my husband's 60th birthday here with the family. The villa is absolutely first class, very well equipped, situated in a quiet cul de sac, and the views are stunning. The swimming pool is a really decent size and there is ample outdoor furniture and cushions provided.
We decided not to hire a car and found it easy to walk into Benalmadena Pueblo (15 minutes) for dining out - plenty choice. Sammy and Wendy were also very helpful and even ordered taxis for us if required.
Absolutely loved our holiday here!
A first class stay. Fabulous villa, location and service and incredible views! Can't recommend enough, the perfect place to just chill out around the pool and villa or to use as a base for sightseeing and activities.
We stayed here for 7 nights in October. There was 9 of us all in 5 adults and 4 kids. The villa is 5* walking distance to the village and a short taxi ride to surrounding areas. The pool is massive which the kids loved and were in it as much as they could. We arrived early and they let us in early which was fantastic as the rain was really heavy when we arrived. overall we had a great holiday and would not hesitate in booking again for a future visit.
We had a lovely stay at El Nido Aguilas for 10 days in June 2018. The property is easy to find, & we were greeted by the agent Sammy who gave us a thorough walk round. All the rooms are very well equipped & presented in excellent order. Air con is essential & worked a treat. The main selling point for us was the extraordinary views from the villa, be it sitting out on the patio or by the pool, or from any of the (shaded) upstairs balconies. Most evenings were spent just taking in the view enjoying a glass or two of local wine.
A car is not essential though it is easier to have one. It's about a 5 minute drive to local shops & supermarkets. Sammy is very happy to order a taxi, one down to Benalmadena itself costs about 10 euros & takes about 15 minutes.
We had many plans to visit the local towns & villages, but we seemed to spend most of the time relaxing at the villa, taking in the views. For a relaxing break, this is a highly recommended villa, we'll definitely be back.
Fantastic location, very quiet and peaceful with amazing views of the coast from every part of the villa, pool and garden - yet only about 10-15 minutes' walk from the centre of the picturesque white village, with excellent restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets. The picture perfect square with its orange trees, cliff-top church, butterfly park and Stupa are all within walking distance and a must. There are also numerous other attractions and places to visit a little further afield, all accessible by bus or hire car.
The villa itself is spacious and luxurious, very well equipped and maintained with a beautiful garden, private pool which we admired from our sun loungers(!) and pool house with barbecue.
As others have commented, the photos don't do it justice. I am new to tripadvisor and have never felt moved to write a review before but we had such an amazing time that we will definitely return and would certainly recommend this villa to anyone else.
While the villa is in a populous neighbourhood it is very quiet and private. As mentioned the view is incredible and it was a joy to eat outside or have beverages at poolside with the ocean in the background. The villa itself is well maintained with a huge living room as well as a beautiful master bedroom with sliding doors onto a provide balcony. The 2 other bedrooms are routine though they both open up onto a shared balcony. It was our final destination in our 24 day visit Spain and it was the perfect way to end it.
