Stayed for one week end of january 2013 apartments are spotlessly clean towels changed every other day, the apartments are well equiped for a selfcatering holiday with 2 rings and a full size oven and grill or a microwave hairdryer in bathroom with a very good shower,small bar and restaurant with beautiful views. The apartments are a 5 to 10 minute easy walk to the beach and commercial centre where there are restauranrs bars and 2 supermarkets you can also walk right round the coast into peurto del carmen which is a much busier resort. Loved these apartments and hope to return lter in the year.

Stayed in Villa Canaima for 10 days in January '13. We were delighted with friendly,efficient service, spotlessly cleaned apartment, linen and towels regularly changed. The complex was very quiet at night, enjoyed beautiful sea views and there was good parking available. The location was close to shops and pubs etc but not too close so there was no noise intrusion. Matagorda Beach is beautiful and not too busy and is only a ten minute stroll. Driving is relaxed and from your location it's really easy to access the island's many highlights.We would highly recommend visiting Orzola and if you do ,get the fishplatter for two at Perla de Atlantique. It's well worth the extra 50 m walk from the nearer restaurants.Mirador del Rio is a must as is Jameos del Agua. We were in Puerto del Carmen 16 years with our family but we much preferred the small villages such as Haira and Tias this time round as Puerto is gone very busy.The walkway into Arrecife from Matagorda is brilliant early in the morning--about a one hour twenty minutes brisk walk when you get there you can hop on the Puerto del Carmen bus and get dropped in Matagorda about 3 mins from Villa Canaima (€1.65 per person).The bus station is immediately after the aquapark and funfair on the way into the town. The Hiper Dino Supermarket in Playa Honda is quite close but a little complicated to drive to . However it's well worth the short journey--you'll see it from the main carraigeway-- and the selection of products there is really good. Enjoy your holidays --you will have a superb base in Villa Canaima. Co. Clare Ireland

Room Tip: 2nd and third floors have really good sea views

I really did not want to write a review on this hidden gem for selfish reasons in case it becomes so popular we cannot book again due to unavailability.

Bit of a walk from main commercial centre of Matagorda - nothing strenuous as water can be purchased quite reasonable in reception area along with milk. We stayed on top floor and only drawback was lugging suitcases up the steps but the view was to die for - what a wonderful wonderful view from the glorious sunrises to the outstanding sunsets with the sun all day on the balcony.

Kitchenette, living room, bathroom with shower and reasonably roomy bedroom. Yes the beds were hard but I found with a damaged spine that I could sleep really well without any effect what so ever as my spine had ben supported all night - I slept better than I have done for years! Spare pillows was a bonus and the blankets if needed and the pillows were not the usual "pancake" type you have to fold over to get comfortable.

Spotlessly clean and brilliant staff who would do anything to help you AND the pool was cleaned and checked EVERY day for its ph balance - very impressed with the attention paid to the pool water.

Only minor gripe was the cooking utensils and cutlery was minimal and could have done with just a little more for preparing meals when not wanting to eat out. But this is entirely my fault as I feel sure that if I had requested additional supplies they would have been there.

Washing dries so easily as it catches wind when hung out on the corner extendable drier. Always hot water 24 hours a day and air conditioning and heating unit if needed which is started off with 99 euros in the meter.

Don't under estimate the quality of the pool side snack bar. On our last day we had breakfasts which were exceptionally good, well presented and reasonably priced. The other snacks are also of really good quality and the beer in iced glasses is just as cheap if not cheaper than a lot of places in Matagorda commercial centre.

Taxi rank just minutes away, Puerto del Carmen a lovely sunny walk by the sea on one of the longest promenades in the world running from Arracife to Puerto del Carmen Harbour where you can catch a boat for various trips.

Reception will organise any additional trips and we went on a Last Minute. com tour of the island. First time used them and they were really professional throughout and excellent value for money with many trips actually being cheaper than trying to do them yourselves. They pick up on the opposite side to the taxi rank practically on villas doorsteps.

This is our sixth time to Matagorda and I worried that I might be bored with revisiting same place too many times - not a chance! The most wonderfully enjoyable holiday for years. These villas a truely a hidden gem. Fantastic and cannot wait to return - well done Villa Canaima for getting it so right - lovely relaxing quiet chilled out place to stay.

I am writing this whilst currently sitting on our balcony at the apartments, overlooking the sea. All the previous reviews praising these apartments are well justified. On arrival, on a Sunday evening, we found a burst water pipe had caused minor flooding to the apartment, a quick phone call and within 30 minutes or so, staff had attended and we were moved to a new apartment, now that is what I call service.
The apartments are situated about a 5 -10 minute stroll from the shopping centre where there are a number of bars, restaurants and two supermarkets to chose from, a slight uphill stroll on the way back, but not too exhausting at all.
Matagorda is a quiet area, with just the resaurants and bars at the shopping centre, if you are looking for nightlife, that is in Puerto del Carmen itself, which is about a 30 minute walk away or a taxi at around 4/5 euro.
Everything you need in the apartments, which are kept spotlessly clean, as is all the complex, plenty of sunbeds by the pool and no-one reserving them. Digital TV included with lots of channels which you can change to English language, what a bonus.
A nice snack bar overlooking the pool area which does a very good large breakfast at 4euro, only slightly more expensive than in the shopping centre, but no walking, we have not tried the snacks yet, but not expensive either, large beer 2.5 euro, cheaper than the restaurants.
The beds as mentioned previously are on the hard side, but we found them to be fine and extra pillows and blankets if you get chilly.
Free wi-fi, a bit hit and miss at times, but as I write they have had a man in to try and sort it out, obviously not too bad as I managed to write this from there.
All staff are extremely friendly and can not do enough for you, we have stayed in a number of other apartments in the area and I can honestly say for location and quality this is one of the best. We will certainly book here for our next visit if available and would certainly recommend to friends and family.
Taxi from airport was 12.5 euro

Room Tip: We paid for a sea view room, very good with the sun all day. we were on 1st floor excellent, 2nd flo...

I have stayed in most apts and hotels in Matagorda over many years. This is by far the best. - spotlessly clean, (not an ant or cockroach in sight) well maintained and lovely helpful, friendly staff. I stayed in one of their 4 apartments for people with disabilities. I hire a mobility scooter which I bring in and recharge overnight - plenty of room for this. Nice sized bathroom with flat walk in shower, shower seat and plenty of grab rails and sliding doors so they don't get in the way. Wardrobes with low level rails and double bed and enough space to move around the room. The staff here will do anything they can to make your stay more comforable so well done all round to all.
