Have been visiting the resort for years and can say that it is one of the best kept places we have visited. Loads of great places close to visit and eat. Not great if you have teenagers looking for nightlife but good if you are looking to relax during the day but want to eat out at night.

We had a lovely week. Lovely result that was maintained beautifully. It was a little isolated but incredible selection of restaurants nearby, spoiled for choice. Local bus service good and reasonably priced. Lisa the entertainments lady was really friendly and nothing too much trouble. Loved our apartment, furnished to a high standard and had a nice roof terrace. Three pools...

I visited Villacana in January and stayed in a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment which was beautifully fitted out but far too large for a solo traveller so on this occasion I occupied a one bedroom ground floor apartment and was lucky enough to be in a corner position which enjoyed the sunshine in the morning and for a large...

Just finished a week stay at this resort. The stay was booked through RCI and we stayed in a 2 Bed, 2 Bath unit #218 with a roof deck as well as a small balcony off the main dining area of the apartment. The units have no elevators but on checkin they offered a porter to carry our bags up...

The apartment was a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom with access to a roof terrace. The lounge/kitchen diner was larger than expected, well furnished spotlessly clean with a fully fitted kitchen including dishwasher with a supply of tablets and washing up liquid. The surrounding gardens and pool area are full of colour and very well kept in fact manicured. There are...

This was an excellent resort, clean, friendly, nothing to criticise. All you could hope for. A good entertainment programme with staff to match. The position wasn't the best but it was good for us. The outstanding chef was the biggest asset. Reasonably priced food, which for the quality and excellence produced was well below what we would have expected to...

This is a well situated resort, on the beach side of the A7, with private direct access to the beach. It is within easy walking distance (across a footbridge) of Cancelada village. Bus stop for Estepona / San Pedro is close to resort entrance. On our visit we found everything looking well. All the buildings, the plentiful garden spaces and...
