“Relaxing Villa off the beaten track with an amazing pool”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

We, my partner and 2 girls (10 & 13) and I, stayed at the Villa in July 14 and had one of the most relaxing holidays we have had in a long time. Very lazy days spent in the large pool floating about, or sat on the terrace reading our books/magazines. The villa is down a long single road away from the main road so very peaceful but it was easy to get to either of the 2 closest towns for either the market, shopping or eating out. The facilities on offer were great with full internet access which seems to be a must these days to check social media sites, email etc. I would highly recommend this villa to all families but not those with very young children as there are steps up to the villa/down to the pool.

Liked best: The amazing pool, and the side terrace where we sat and ate our evening meals.
Liked least: No air conditioning which made the night time stuffy. There were fans but the heat in July was at times too hot for us.

“Truly Relaxing Holiday in a Truly Beautiful Location”

This was our first trip to Spain so was a bit apprehensive about meeting Manuel and Gerardo at the local services to be escorted down a very winding hillside road. However, the Villa was well worth the wait. The pool is as big as it looks in the photographs and kept impeccably clean...in fact we spent most of the time relaxing on the terrace of the pool. The villa has two terraces so you are spoilt for choice where to eat and the kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need to cater for yourself...with thoughtful purchases from Manuel and Gerardo such as fruit, bread, milk and water (also found washing up liquid, toilet roll, bin liners and a variety of cleaning equipment). Manuel also came to clean the pool during our stay and left us with new potatoes, strawberries and blackberries...all fresh and delicious.
We visited Frigiliana (mountainside village) where the locals were starting their Easter celebrations and the family lent us their car parking space (locked) to ensure that we could park. Had a fantastic meal at El Boquetillo (English speaking). We also visited Nerja (Coastal town) where you could spend time looking through the many boutique and tourist style shops; as well as spend time by the sea. Both locations were about 15-20 minutes from the villa so close enough to visit but far enough away to ensure a relaxing break.
I would definitely recommend stopping at Villa Ruiz...the pool was perfect, the views amazing and the hosts very generous and caring.

“Villa Ruiz - Simply Excellent!!!!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We had a truly fantastic family holiday staying at Villa Ruiz in early November. The Villa itself is fully equipped with all you need for a fantastic holiday, views of the mountains to the rear truly breath-taking and gorgeous sea view to the front, fantastic for eating breakfast in the morning!

The swimming pool was fantastic also enclosed and quite and we found the Ruiz family who own the villa to be fantastic hosts - from being met on the way to the villa to having bread and milk already in the fridge on arrival to ensuring the Wifi internet was available for our visit - nothing was too much trouble and communication fantastic throughout!


This was our first visit to the Costa Del Sol and we certainly will be back and stay at this villa again

A great base for either a couple of family holiday!

Villa Ruiz is a very comfortable villa, set in a lovely garden and well laid out, with lots of outdoor space on three sides. The private pool area is very inviting and perfect for sunbathing. The two patio/terraces are ideal for dining and relaxing in shade or full sun. The whole property is adequately equipped and very well maintained and the broadband availability is a bonus. The villa is cool and shady inside and there are excellent barbecue facilities at the back of the property. It is an ideal base for a family or two couples.
