We did not enjoy our stay at Villacana and really wish we would have stayed somewhere else. First of all, we were provided with incorrect written directions to the resort. According to the written directions, once we passed the resort at mile marker 165/166, we were supposed to exit at "Selwo Park." There is no Selwo Park. After we passed...

We did an exchange through RCI and we very pleased with Villacana Resort. We stayed the last few days of October and the first week in November. As we expected some of the activities were curtailed but as there is so many things to do in the area it did not matter. We came by train from Madrid into Malaga....

Nice resort, it's probably best to have a car, however there is a bus stop right outside. Our apartment was above the reception area which I didn't like too much I would have preferred one of the others. However our apartment was quite large and suitable for our needs. Would have been nice to have had a TV in the...

We have been going to Villacana for the last 23 years and it is time for a review ! It is mature, self catering style, resort that, despite its age, just maintains such high standards. The accommodation is ever upgraded and the gardens are its crowning glory. They are a plethora of smells and beauty and their cultivation can only...

Well kept large accommodation, beautiful grounds, pleasant staff. Ideal for those looking for a relaxing break in a quiet location, but near enough to the larger resorts. Only a few minutes walk to beach, and five restaurants close by including one on site. We had a roof top terrace, ideal for soaking up the rays, or barbecue lunches. Only downside...
