1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Nicky and her father were very hospitable, extremely kind and went out of their way to help us in our first few days when we had forgotten our driving license at home by mistake. The restaurant has a beautiful view, the service is excellent and the food is very good. The paella is well worth ordering, the best I've tasted. The kids menu was great and all the kids facilities excellent. Our children loved the swimming pool and trampoline, it was hard to get them away from there. It was also great that they met other children to play with. We enjoyed relaxing, reading, swimming and sitting by the pool. Our kids were happy hence so were we!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

You definitely need a car. Its quite remote. The closest good beach is about 45 mins away but the location is fabulous, great view so in the end you are quite satisfied to stay there. Ideal for families with small kids. The pool is secured.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I have no idea. I met the cleaning lady who was spanish.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very good. We enjoyed discovering that part of Spain and we would definitely recommend it.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Our visit to Alhambra (4pm tour, not busy at all). The beautiful vacation house with amazing views and great for children.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Visit the Alhambra late afternoon for fewer crowds. My 3 year old managed to do the 5km tour around it. Definitely worth doing a tour rather than your own visit. Takes about 2 hours to get there. Great around Easter time as to too hot and lots of lovely flowers. Pool too cold for little children around Easter time, but trampoline a big hit and swings/slides etc.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Only glass recycling on site. Would be good to also have paper/card and plastics.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Great. Beautiful place. V. Quiet and peaceful.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Visiting the Alhambra.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

You have to have a car as it is not really possible to walk to any of the local villages as the roads are so bendy that it would be dangerous.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

This is a really beautiful part of Spain as its all hills and valleys, but this means that it is windy and often drizzly/ misty. So the water in the swimming pool did not warm up at all during the week we were there. I think it is a resort that relies on the weather being hot, so that being up high would be pleasant. Really good quality accommodation.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The beautiful views from the apartment and balcony

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

It's a long drive to anywhere from this accommodation, so it's a perfect choice for families wanting to relax round the pool and enjoy the views and the weather; less ideal if you plan to do lots of sightseeing.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Hard to say. Not obviously so, other than that it brings income to the area in the form of tourist cash.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

An excellent family vacation in a beautiful location.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Being able to sit on the look out enjoying the marvellous view down across Lake Vinuela to the sea.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Make the most of the great restaurant at the accommodation.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Little need to leave such a beautiful setting so fuel reduced usage. Took home locally grown olive oil.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

We really had a memorable and fantastic break. Opportunity to relax completely and to enjoy the pool, view and good balance of self catering and using the excellent restaurant. Nicky and her staff were very welcoming. I have recommended it to several people already and have regularly checked the web cam.
