There was a massive problem with ants in the kitchen - even wrapped food in cupboards was attacked. The representatives solution to this was to provide mosquito spray. This was effective in killing ants present at the time but not stop them from returning. We had to keep our food in the living room display cabinets. Both the representative and Panoramic villas regard this as a normal feature of staying in spain. I have stayed in the Costa Del Sol many times before and not had this problem and when we had ants in Florence, Italy the owners were informed and dealt with the problem promptly and properly. Unlike here.
The answer to the above problems? - £50 refund. Not enough in my opinion.
The villa itself is lovely - it's very well decorated and has lots of interesting art features. The courtyard is particularly impressive. My son enjoyed attacking me with lemons from the tree overlooking the pool! I was concerned that the pool might be a little small (6m by 3m) but actually it felt big enough.It was nice to have lots of outside seating options. There is is a nice view all the way down to Fuengirola.
The showers were nice and spacious and the air conditioning worked well. We were welcomed with two bottles of wine and a bottle of sherry which is a nice touch.
Overall, the villa is much nicer than I was expecting and we had a lovely holiday despite the above problems.
Thank you for your review, Ali. We are sorry to hear the air hockey was not working properly. It was not possible to find someone to fix this during busy peak season, during your stay and we are very sorry about this. You were compensated for this upon your return from the property and guests that have stayed following this have been satisfied that this, and the pool table, work perfectly well. The property was fumigated in line with rental laws in Spain prior to your stay and this has not been an issue before, or since this was reported by yourself. We are pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay in the villa despite this and enjoyed the lovely outdoor space with pool and great views. we hope you will book with us again in the future.
Thank you Richard, we are delighted that you had a great holiday. We hope that you will book with us again in the future and we can aim for 5 stars!

We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at Villa SP283 and it was everything you had expected. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future and finding another holiday home that is just right for you.
Thank you for your feedback. We are thrilled that you had a great holiday and we hope you will book with us sgain soon.
Everything was thought of from just having a pump to inflate the inflatables for the pool to having English tv channels and wifi.
Charlotte met us on arrival and was lovely and helpful, we also had contact with Charlotte a few months before our trip where she gave us information about the local area e.g. Shops,restaurants,hospitals.
You want be disappointed if you stay here and we will definitely be booking again.

Very quite area close to shopping (but car is needed).
Thank you for your feedback Claus. We are glad you had a nice holiday and we hope you will use our services again in the future.
Thank you for your feedback Joanne, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay, and that you were pleased with our service. We hope you will book with us again in the future.
The villa is also not on an Urbanisation as with previous villas that we have used in the area. This means that it was quieter, slightly rural and had lovely views. You will almost certainly need a car though as there are no local shops or restaurants.
The facilities are also very good. The kitchen has all the gadgets that you could need on holiday, the living room is comfortable and has a TV with a few UK channels. There is also a downstairs shower room which is very convenient. The villa has Wi-Fi which covers the villa and most of the outside.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a further shower room and a very nice sun terrace. All the bedrooms have air conditioning for those really hot nights.
Outside there is a veranda which encompasses two sofas and a pool table that can be switched to air hockey, this leads onto an extensive patio area and at the other end is a further veranda which has a massive dining table, a built in BBQ, sink area and a pizza oven, there is also lighting and power. To one side of this patio is the pool which has views towards the sea on one side and towards the mountains on the other. There are further works of art outside, on the verandas and by the pool. There is a smaller table and two chairs by the side of the villa next to patio doors that lead into the living room and a smaller area large enough for a sun lounger that is shaded by two lemon trees.
A fairly steep paved slope leads from the patio up to a further table and chairs and a gate that leads out to a gravelled parking area that is shared with another nearby property.
Overall I liked the villa but if I could change one thing it would probably be to make the pool bigger. I appreciate that for others it's probably big enough but it seemed a bit small to me particularly considering the size of the outside space.
And finally in relation to the info that I mentioned above. An email with comprehensive information (directions, handover details, contact info for the person doing the handover) 2-4 weeks before arrival would be good. I did get a text with a link on google maps the day before we left but I didn't realise that I wouldn't be able to transfer this to my sat nav once in Spain, which made things difficult! I also couldn't contact Rafael, who was dealing with the handover, to tell him we would be late as I didn't have his number. Perhaps I am being picky but this is what I have come to expect Re the other villas that I have booked via Panoramic.
Overall I would definitely recommend this villa. It is comfortable, quiet and very well appointed.
Hello Kevin, Thank you for your detailed review. It is always great to have customers use our service again.
In relation to the comments on our service, we do in fact accept credit cards and always have done (Visa, Mastercard and AMEX), so we're sorry you were not aware of this.
We can appreciate that not having the required information may have been frustrating for you. Owners choose how they pass this to customers, which is why this can vary between individual properties. We will speak to this particular owner about this and suggest that he uploads the information to our Holiday Information Form to make things easier for future guests. We do expect owners to pass this to guests at least a few weeks prior to arrival at the villa.
Lastly, the reason you only have the property representatives number for this property is that Rafael's English is not great and he prefers his property manager to deal with customers, which is why you have his number instead. Again, we will suggest he adds his number as an emergency contact for instances such as this.
We are glad that you enjoyed your holiday overall and we look forward to helping you find another villa in the future.
We really enjoyed our stay and the owner Damian and maintenance guy Rafael were brilliant. The villa is just beautiful and well kept. I would note I do think a car really is needed for the location if you have a family but that would be my only observation.
