Thank you for your feedback!
The villa is great, very spacious and well laid out. Lots of different balconies and eating areas. Everything is smart and works very well, but has the right amount of "lived-in" to make us not be too nervous about our children causing havoc. You need a car, ideally, as there is not much you can walk to, especially in the heat of high season. We would definitely re-book.

Thank you for your review, Nicola. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and we hope we will be welcoming you back in the future.
Absolut super fin villa og udendørs arealer.
Vi var 15 personer i huset og det fungerede så fint.
En særlig tak til Agnes for fin velkomst og information.
Vi vender helt klart tilbage til Panoramic Villas når vi skal besøge skønne Spanien igen.

Second time staying in Panoramic villas and I have experienced yet another amazing stay. Agnes who was our point of contact on both stays was so helpful, friendly and accommodating. I can’t wait to plan my next stay with a company who look after their guests and have amazing properties. Thanks again!! Simone

Thank you!  We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay.
Amazing villa, so much space and the pool is lush.
Had a couple problems on the first night but when phil a maintenance guy came to see us the next morning he sorted them all out.
Used tim the chef for breakfast and he is very good, would definitely recommend.
Would defiantly stay here again.
Thanks panoramic villas
Amanda Chainey (Tuesday, September 12, 2017)
Panoramic Villas response:
Thank you for your review.  We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that those small issues were resolved quickly.  We are also delighted that the catering you arranged worked out well for you.  We hope you will book with us again!
We had no issues upon arrival at the villa, and although the inside wasn't ready for check in yet, we were allowed to go and sit by the pool and enjoy the outside grounds. All of the amenities inside the villa were perfect and the pool table and hottub were an added bonus.

The only thing I will say is that if you are a big group that are known to be noisy, this might not be the place for you as it is located within a residential area and noise complaints are made, however we only experienced this once. All in all the villa is fabulous and would definitely stay here again.

Panoramic Villas response:
Thank you Christopher.  We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
Panoramic villas have been fantastic from start to finish. They were easily contactable when I wanted to make amendments, and were extremely amenable. Agnes was fantastic, and came out of her way to greet us and see us off when we were leaving. I wouldn't hesitate to use panoramic villas again and am already when I can go back to the villa! 5 stars!

Panoramic Villas response:
Thank you for your review, Alison.  It's always lovely to see our customers having a great time and enjoying our villas!  We look forward to helping you book your next villa holiday.
Wery nice place to say. Awesome views att the rooftop. But some worn-out furniture (sofa-bed, and kitchen drawers) But it didnt matter because we had a really nice time in the house! The pool and hottub was also clean, we Will definitly be back!

Great house! Great service...

Panoramic Villas response:
Thank you for your feedback.  We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay.
The Villa was exactly as discribed. The hot tub and pool were put to great use, and all of us throughly enjoyed our holiday in Mijas. It was quite a walk to the local shops, and restaurant, but taxis were easily available and at a very good rate, although the younger, fitter members walked everyday. The large supermarket was very helpful and always called taxis for us. Fuengirola was lovely too, but the market trip proved too much in the mid-day sun as it was so large it was impossible to get round all of it. Glad we went though. Would certainly recommend the villa to family and friends.

Panoramic Villas response:
Thank you for your feedback Arline.  We are delighted that you and your family enjoyed your holiday and that you were pleased with our service.  We hope to welcome you back to one of our villas in the future.
Our comments - we thought improvements could be made to the air conditioning units as need to be checked - not all seemed to work properly, shelving to bedroom 5 and chairs to bedrooms, the fridge space could be larger for 17 people, Shading to the roof terrace where the hot tub and pool table located

Thank you for your feedback, Stuart.  We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay in Villa SP001.  We will discuss your suggestions with the property owner and aloso have him look at the air con units as these have not been reported as having issues before.  We hope that you will book with us again in the future.

Amazing villa and very easy arrival / departure.

V.Popat - July 2015

We were a group of 17 people and everything went well.
Thank you.

S.Muller - June 2015

On behalf of my self and the rest of my holiday party we would like to thank you and your team for making our holiday break one of the best as a group we have had many thanks again.

A. Jenkins - May 2015

We loved the house. I will recommend it to many of my friends. So happy that there was no extra charges. The price was fine and all of us enjoyed much!

M. Amundsen - July 2014

Hi Allan and Julie and all the Panoramic team,

We just wanted to say a really big thank you for our holiday at Bella Vista. The villa was fantastic, the local bars and shops provided everything we needed day to day and when we did decide to leave the poolside we had a great day on the lovely, clean beach in Fuengirola and some fun nights out in the town.

Please can you say thanks to Agnes too for how helpful she's been. Everything went smoothly from start to finish with our booking, we’ll definitely be using Panoramic again.

Emily Costello - September 2013

We had a great stay! The house fits the description very well.

S. Wistrand - July 2013

We very much enjoyed our stay and the villa was ideal for us.

G. Clark - June 2013

Really nice villa - superb for large stag / hen parties as it is nice without being too luxurious that you are scared to move. The pool was fantastic - especially as we paid for it to be heated - with plenty of sunbeds for everyone. We had 10 staying which was comfortable. Pool table area was excellent too.

E.Seatter - May 2013

Hi Julia,

Just a quick word to thank you very much for the hire of the Villa Bella Vista last week. From the moment we stepped into the villa we fell in love with it and had a wonderful holiday there. Agnes was fantastic, she is an asset to your company and adds that essential extra that I'm sure other companies are unable to provide.

Communication with you has always been met with professionalism and helpfulness, your company's attention to detail is second to none and once again I thank you.

I can only hope that we'll be able to book a villa again with you in the future.
