“A lovely relaxing stay”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Wonderful spacious villa with lovely views of the mountains. A large 3 bed villas with air con, a good size pool and not far from the beach.
We had a welcome note on arrival with a complimentary bottle of cava waiting in the fridge. The fridge also had some ham, cheese & breads ready for us - good thing as we arrived late in the evening. There is a shop close by the get groceries from.
The pool was lovely and well kept. Great temperature, very refreshing especially after a sunbathing session! The garden walls are low....but we on,y ever saw 2 people walk past all day. It's very quiet in Villas Blancas. Very private.
The WIFI was nice to have and it's also complimentary.
Overall it was a fantastic relaxing week. Exactly what we were after. We will definitely return next year for another week of R&R.

“Perfect Family Holiday”
Reviewed 18 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

We returned from another wonderful family holiday at No.1 Villas Blancas in August 2014.

As always we arrived to a spotless clean villa, glistening pool and welcome pack in our fridge!

We have visited this villa now with our young children and extended family on numerous occasions and have always felt at home here straight away.

As it was the hot season we welcomed the aircon, although the evenings cool down. I was able to work on a few days using my iPad and the Wifi which felt lovely whilst sitting around the pool!!

The kids watched a bit of TV when it was to hot to play in the pool and they enjoyed some of the english channels they found.

We loved using the BBQ this time for lunches and always have fabulous meals out in the vast aray of restaurants which are a few minutes drive from the Villa.

Thank you once again for your fab communication, easy booking and care looking after us on our stay. We shall hopefully be booking next years holiday very soon!

“This villa is Fantastic, you wont be disappointed”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The villa surpassed our expectations and we felt at home as soon as we walked through the door. The scenery of the volcanoes is breath-taking! This is the second time my family have stayed at this villa and we have genuinely enjoyed our subsequent stay! The villa is exceptional! It just seems to get better and better! The owner appears to always want to improve on the comfort and appearance of the villa, having just been re-decorated, there is a flat-screen TV with Sky, Wi-Fi (at no extra cost) and best of all there is air-conditioning in the bedrooms!!
The Villa Manager (Kevin) is always on hand if you need any help or advice and he really can’t do enough to make your stay as relaxing and as enjoyable as possible!
We shall definitely be looking to book again at the same villa!

“Relaxed but a lot of technical problems”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

Hello Graham,

We are back from holiday at Lanzarote and I like to give you some feedback.

We had a relaxed holiday (Lanzarote is a nice island and Playa blanca a nice town), however some parts of the villa / services weren't that good :
1. At arrival there was no Wifi (this was part of the deal) and we had to ask Kevin (one of the agents) to fix that. He did this the next day by a Mifi router from Vodafone. This worked fine for a week but then the speed dropped dramatically (I could not open a website, only mail etc worked very slow, I think the bundle was used up and the speed switched down). I have informed Kevin about this and he stated this was a general Vodafone problem. A couple of days before the end of our holiday Jo (the other agent, Kevins wife) showed up with a technician from Vodafone and after the announcement that he had to get something from the town and with Jo's statement "he will be back in a minute" we waited for his return, but he never came back as didn't Jo.
2. The electrical problems have been persistent (each day the power went down once or twice, mostly when it was dark, no logic in it). The technican was going to repair it but never showed up again.
3. The washing machine broke down on Thursday and after a couple of promises of Kevin and Jo and after we put pressure on it, it was replaced at Tuesday.
4. The dishwasher didn't pump any water away anymore from approx. 6 days before the end of our holiday. I inforrmed Kevin and he stated that if the dishwasher was broken it would be replaced immediately. Also Jo saw it with her own eyes and called Kevin to fix it. I haven't seen Kevin or Jo anymore after that. I had to remove the water manually (not a big deal, but also not holiday style).
5. The coocker head did not work from the start.
6. The outer shower at the pool didn't work (Jo stated that this was the situation for years now).
7. The doors from the shower cabine (master bedroom) were severly damaged on arrival (couldn't close in a normal way). Also the toilet was very loose.
8. The torough cleaning (as mentioned in the advertisement and in the book at the villa) was not performed, only bedlinnen and towels were changed. The website and the book in the villa are not consistent with each other, so maybe we got what we were entitled to, but maybe not.
9. The number of pots in the kitchen was an absolute minimum (2 pots and 1 one frying pan) as were the knifes (cutlery).
10. In the advertisement you speak of three bedrooms with airco but there were only two equipped with airco.
11. The satellite TV is difficult to operate (no manual) and after the power drops I had to program the TV in such a way that he could receive the SKY box again (menu settings to HDMI). Also the soccer world championship could not be seen on TV (strange for a satellite TV).
12. The window door from the last bedroom is very difficult to close (lock down position).
13. No clothespins for the wash, It fell off regurarly (wind) until we bought some ourselves. Not a big deal but should be present.

Also off course good things : pool and pool temperature, spacy villa, 2 boilers with always warm water, sunbeds outside etc.

But in all honesty : this was for us the most expensive villa in the last ten years but with the poorest performance.
The holiday was relaxing but the technical issues of it spoiled it for a part.

With best regards,
Wim

“Lovely Villa”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This was without doubt one of if not the best holiday accommodations I have ever stayed at.
It made the holiday just perfect. Already looking forward to a return visit. It was actually even better than as advertised.
