“Lovely villa, perfect for a group holiday to Marbella”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

Travelled in a group of 13 for a hen party. The villa is very big and spacious enough to cater well for a large group and the garden area is stunning (watch out for the avocados dropping though!). Eva and Jose were extremely accommodating allowing us to check in early and check out late, and provide local taxi details which were extremely reliable. The most appealing thing about this villa is the price - for what we paid, and considering this is Marbella, I think this is an outstanding choice.

The pool was lovely and it has all the facilities you could want for this type of holiday. Sure, we couldn't find a shop within walking distance and it is by the motorway, but Eva and Jose are open about these things and this did not impact on our enjoyment at all.

“Already planning another stay”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A group of 10 of use stayed here for my friends hen party right from the start the communication was excellent.

On arrival there was a welcome bottle of sparkling wine waiting for us and the fridge was stocked with extra drinks very reasonably priced or you could replace like for like.

Yes there is a little noise from the road but this did not affect us at all, pool and living space was fantastic and plenty of room for all 10 of us to relax in comfort.
The Villa would perhaps benfit from a new BBQ as we didn't feel the one there could be used
But the kitchen was
More than adequate and we hired a private chef to come one evening and do a paella party which was fantastic.
Already planning a return trip next year thank you Eva and Jose

“Good - room for improvement”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015
2
people found this review helpful

Okay I'll start this review with what I think most people (and owners) want to here - would we stop again - Yes we would.

Now a little more detail.....

Good
-------
The property is very large with a great big living area which also has a dining table, our children loved it and allowed us to have a grown ups sofa and children sofa etc.

The washing machines / tumble drier multiple fridges / freezer etc all worked great. An iron is also there - top tip pack less and make use of the machines to clean.

The property is in the hills of Marbella so not much passing traffic or people around at all.

Pool is large and plenty of outdoor seating / space.

Most of the property overlooks a golf course so again no disturbances.

Bad / Poor / Room for improvement
------------------------------------------------

This property is next to a motorway, it didn't bother us as we are townies with busy roads by us at home - but those seeking tranquillity may not appreciate it.

Wifi is provided but it is woeful - websites struggle to load and you have no chance of streaming anything.

TV Satellite doesn't work, and other channels pick up is poor. I really hope the owners get a new dish it can't be that expensive?

There are 40 steps down to the property - this wouldn't be suitable for disabled or those that may struggle - no lift so do consider you have to carry your bags down and up!

I think the property states sleeping for 12, in reality there are 4 real bedrooms, only 1 of which has a proper double bed, 2 bedrooms have ensuites. There is a 5th bedroom which is a kind of annex with 2 beds, this also houses the washing machine / tumble drier and 1 fridge and is next to the kitchen - not a private room by any means. If you are travelling with different couples / families the one that gets the true double bedroom with ensuite will feel like royality - but others may feel short changed having to push odd height twins together in the other rooms.

There are some cracked tiles around the pool and a maintenance hatch for the pool (with a 12 foot drop) is covered but not locked. Some of the wooden furniture should be replaced.

Hot water runs out in the mornings and we had 5 adults stopping.

Summary
-------------
You have to consider when thinking about staying here that the price was 5 times cheaper than any other villa we could find in the area. Yes the road is there and there are the steps but generally you really get a lot for your money.

Part of me really wants to ask the owners to give the property a good once over, I'd be happy to pay more to stay next year if they could fix the broken bits add a 2nd double bed and improve the Wifi / TV etc. A real improvement would be if the pool could be heated, this would move the property up a league without doubt.

If you are a complainer or a perfectionist do not stay here. If you have kids but are not capable of watching them do not stay here. If you are looking for a bargain and are happy to put up with a few quirks (that you probably have in your own home) then you will enjoy this place.

“A most beautiful villa”
Reviewed 21 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Villa Rio Real I a beautiful spacious villa set in a beautiful location. The views over the golf course we're tremendous.
The nearby road can be noisy but I forgot it was there the next day as I became oblivious to it.
