Having used Trip advisor to select this Hotel I am only to delighted to report back on it.
Where though does one start with an establishment of this quality?!
On arrival we were welcomed, quickly checked in and then taken by Golf cart up to our villa, we selected a 3 bedroom villa even though it was only two of us and our 3yr old daughter.
The villa was not done justice by the images on various websites! but I can confirm they are spacious! very modern! contemporary and immaculately clean! the 3 bedrooms have a pool which is plenty big enough, we swam and entertained our daughter in there for hours.
I would define the villas as to a very high standard.
To provide a little more info this is not really a hotel, it is a reception area which controls 78 villas, all of the villas are easily accessible from reception, we were number 18 which is one of the furthest off villas but none are more than 100-125 metres.
There is a 24hr reception, pool bar which serves food from around mid day to 1800hrs, then you have a restaurant upstairs from reception which serves until 2300hrs.
Also present, are a mini market which is great, gym, hairdressers and internet access.
The wifi is very good in the reception area but is not yet live around the resort, the hotel were telling me they are working on this but really we had internet on our phones (3G) anyway so it was not an issue really, I could pick up the villa Maria wifi from the villa but it did not work! it does work fine from reception or pool, restaurant areas.
We used all facility's including room service on many occasions and we found everything to be of consistent and good quality.
The staff make this place, we did not find one who was not hospitable, friendly, great with kids and helpful, being a large scale employer myself, I can attest that this is no mean feat.. Fantastic people.
We managed fine with no hire car, and spent most days lounging by the pool, playing with our daughter at the various indoor and outdoor play areas provided or just eating and drinking! it is no word of a lie that I had a tear in my eye as I said good bye to the staff at the pool bar on our last day! I can only assume that they will still be there the next time we visit such is the job satisfaction those personnel appear to hold.
I tested every aspect of the food service and NO is not a word I like to hear in the restaurant trade! and the great news is that I did not hear that fateful word once, previous reviews I read suggested that there was little flexibility in the food service. Thankfully, we found that even when requesting items or cooking styles not on the menus,that our requests were met without the slightest hint of protest.
There is a supermarket 1 mile up the road, and it's 15 minutes walk down to la caleta! not that I would recommend la caleta as it's frankly pretty poor.
Plaza duque is more recommended for shopping and there are a few suitable eateries around there between fanabe beach and la caleta.
Villa Maria is not cheap, we paid 3000+ euros for accommodation! them around 150-200 euro per day for food for 3 of us on site there. We were happy with the convenience of that and enjoyed this place so very much indeed.
