Villa Botin had everything we needed and was very comfortable. We were three generations on holiday together and having one bedroom downstairs was a big plus to avoid one of us having to walk upstairs. Being able to have the pool heated meant that we could use it every day - with the extraordinarily cold spring this year that would not have been possible otherwise. For rentals in the cooler months there is a heater in the sitting room and a back-up gas boiler for hot water.
We stayed at Villa Botin for the fourth time in a row and it was great as always. this time we hared the house with friends of ours and thus were a group of 8 people. It was spacious enough for all of us and we enjoyed every day. In fact we got up every morning at 8 to enjoy the sun rise from the balcony on the first floor.My husband normally loves to sleep in but could not resist the spectacular view every morning with a cup of coffee and a roll of our favorite cookies.. Living normally in a big city, the place is perfect for us to unwind and relax and so we booked again for next year. Jose was helpful as always and we loved the warmth of the pool water and the sun on our skin! Thanks Linda and Jose!
Views from the villa were breathtaking. The villa was equipped to a high standard for a large family group. The youngest in our group was 12 and the villa would suit people of all ages. The facilities and outdoor kitchen made cooking easy. The pool was a fantastic size and well maintained. The villlage of Comares was beautiful, eating out for a large group was excellent value. If you're looking for a holiday to get away from it all, experience real Spain and connect as a family this is the place to go. We miss it already!
I'm writing this review part way through our stay using the complimentary wifi :) the villa is more amazing than we could have imagined and much nicer than the pictures are able to show. The south views are completely uninterrupted straight to the coast. The villa itself is perfect for our group of 8 friends all in our twenties and would be great for older groups and families alike. Very clean on arrival and has everything we could ever ask for. The only reason I haven't given full stars for everything is that I couldn't see any mention on the webpage about the driveway, which is not for the faint hearted or unconfident drivers. It's fine when you're used to it but is very narrow and very steep. Not ideal when you have a van full of people and baggage but you would have to expect such a drive to be able to enjoy the brilliant views from on top of the hill! Overall a brilliant villa and would definitely return again. Thank you very much for letting us stay.
