Built on the side of the magnificent 'montana roja' (the namesake of the villa) this beautiful property boasts spectacular views of the ocean, the islands and the town of Playa Blanca.
The size was perfect for our party of 9, with the two floors acting as a perfect divide between our two families (of 5 and 4). The kitchen was a great size and the games room made for the perfect family face off!
The solar heated pool is great, both in size and temperature but with the ocean only a 10 minute walk away, it was sadly quite rarely used. The mountain was also a good climb, we reached the top in just over half an hour, with 4 children under the age of 13.
Due to the size of our group we could only afford to eat out the once, but with the bbq and kitchen, I dont think we missed out on much.
Overall, this was an excellent stay and we will definitely be back!
We had a one week holiday in the Casa Montana. Great, great, great!
The villa is in 5 minutes drive from the beach. Excellent panorama, extremely
peaeceful, friendly environment. White and black! Magnificent sunrises and sunsets, big and clean swimming pool, The kitchen is ideal for any cookings, for the breakfasts as well. We have used the dining room for the lunches and dinners. Each bedroom has a seaview, has its our bathroom with WC. Clean and cofortable,
Los Rijos is perhaps one of the most enjoyable part of Playa Blanca. The Casa Montana is ideal for 1-2 families, friendly groups, etc.
This villa has great potential. Sadly however there are numerous issues that leave the client disappointed and frustrated.
On arrival the key code to gain entry had been changed and we were not informed resulting in us waiting for someone to arrive with new number. At this time we were told that a number of lights were not working but would be rectified the following day. Six days later and 3 emails to put this right!!
The lights in the lower activity room still do not work.
The table tennis table has balls but no bats.
The pool table has cues but not chalk.
The lights to illuminate the BBQ area do not work hence no evening outdoor function.
None of the TV's work...ie no channels found.
Web site pictures look great but sadly no reference to the fact that a main road is at the end of the garden.
We found the property during a visit (staying elsewhere) in mid December. The 6 blacks bags of garden rubbish and pile of palm leaves we there then and are still there now.
With no linen change after 11days we had to ask for this to be done.
The cooker hood in the kitchen is dangerous because it is parallel with the work surface and putting red tape around the protruding corners will not stop an average height person walking into it.
Finally the big plus is the pool which is great....shame about the above.
