Reviews of our villas in Alicante Province
We have 3,064 reviews of our villas in Alicante Province.
We had a wonderful stay, there was everything you could wish for. The only thing we didn't expect was the storms and that showed that the conservatory needed a little attention against any future inclement and uncharacteristic weather. The villa was lovely and clean apart from under the sofa. Dawn was very friendly and helpful when we couldn't find the villa initially due to the adverts on the side of the road being changed. The area was very quiet which was what we wanted and the beach was only a short drive away, not a developed tourist area. The pool was close and a pleasant area, we visited this on several occasions when not out sightseeing.Read more
We were a family of five (age range 78yrs - 18yrs) who stayed in this villa from the 31st August - 12th September. The villa was excellent and as we had hoped, the bedrooms are large and two have modern en-suite shower rooms. The facilities within the villa are excellent and we made good use of the additional games room on the roof terrace. Javea is a beautiful resort and had many aspects to it, there are many restaurants and bars to choose from in both Arenal and further along in the older part of Javea. If staying in this villa a car is recommended, we hired a car for the entire stay and managed to see a number of other resorts close by, however in our opinion Javea was the most attractive. We arrived late at night and were very grateful for a few essentials, milk, biscuits, crisps and cold beer which David and Christine had left for us, much appreciated. We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to our family and friends and hope to return ourselves one day.Read more
This is a good value villa, perfect for a relaxing holiday by the pool with plenty to do further afield as well. Not super smart, the villa is homely and does have some of the owner's own things in and around so it wasn't like other villas we've stayed in before, but it had everything we needed and we quickly got used to that. The fully equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher was great, 2 bathrooms with no shortage of hot water, and air con in the lounge and ceiling fans in all the bedrooms to keep us cool. The roof terrace is the real gem with plenty of outdoor furniture, shade over the table and wonderful views. The lovely pool with great views and plenty of sun loungers on an attractive grassed area is 30 seconds walk away. There is a good section for babies and toddlers and a lifeguard most of the time. Supermarkets are 10 mins drive. A car is necessary to get around. We enjoyed trips to beaches, markets, Pola park, Alicante, snorkeling etc. Communication with Sandra was excellent throughout and she was very accommodating and extremely quick to answer any questions before and during our stay. There is an identical villa next door so it would be great for a larger party to take the two together. We would happily return if we were to revisit the area.Read more
Very relaxing and enjoyable stay! The villa is very spacious and maintained to a high level. Communal pool close by and very well kept. The owner is very quick to respond to any communication. We loved it so much, we have already booked for next year!!Read more
Had an amazing time, villa is massive and in a great location, cars defiantly recommended (we had 3 cars) but we often walked to and from Arenal Beach which is amazing and has everything you could want, takes maybe 25-30 mins. Good supermarkets nearby also. Joyce was absolutely amazing and couldn’t be more helpful or accommodating if she tried, and everything went very smoothly! Between the 12 of us we honestly couldn’t find fault, could maybe do with a spruce up/update in areas, and a few of us did get bitten by mosquitos, but in no way did this detracted from our amazing stay. Thanks again, and already considering it again for next year! ;-)Read more
Excellent all round! The villa is lovely and has been improved further since the pictures taken. there are lots of separate seating areas outside so you can have your own space, the heated pool was perfect and the bbq area and kitchen in general well stocked and fantastic. Beds were comfy, and everything really clean when we arrived. Would recommend to anyone!Read more

A popular and easy to reach destination for a villa holiday, Alicante retains that authentic Spanish charm with its hilltop castle, pristine bays, local shops and colourful Mediterranean-style houses. Originally called 'Lucentum', (or City of Light), it lies southeast of the Costa Blanca in the Valencian Community, and is Spain’s eighth largest resort, boasting stunning views of the mountainous landscape. Along the coast, discover an elaborate marble floor stretching across the palm-lined promenade, while its main beach Playa del Postiguet boasts 900m of golden sand.
But there's far more to beautiful Alicante than picturesque bays, authentic Spanish tapas and glorious year-round Mediterranean sunshine. Remnants of the city's fascinating past can be found in Mount Benacantil and the stunning medieval castle of Santa Barbara in Alicante city's old town, El Barrio, to the east of the city's centre. Barrio de la Santa Cruz is where you'll find that authentic Spanish charm, with many restaurants, a buzzing nightlife and winding cobbled streets. Holidaymakers visit Alicante for its pristine beaches, historical beauty, museums and atmospheric nightlife. With the Mediterranean Sea to the east it boasts some beautiful beaches and of course, a delicious cuisine, where the best restaurants can be found in Dénia, with over 300 to choose from.
Alicante is also home to award-winning museums and art galleries, as well as a baroque church and 17th century town hall with its equisite marble staircase. From the beach take the lift carved into the side of Benacantil mountain, to the ancient castle and enjoy breath-taking views from the ramparts; Roman ruins, lively markets, a modern marina, and at sundown, El Barrio's busy nightlife scene bustling below; the perfect spot for a romantic evening! Wander further afield and discover the beautiful fishing village of Villajoyosa, the mountaintop fortress of Guadalest and a favourite with families; Torrevieja's Water Park, Aquopolis.
If you're after a relaxing beach holiday, there are plenty of fine sand beaches such as San Juan’s four miles of blue-flag coastline, and the urban beach of Playa Postiguet. Wander along the palm-fringed promenade stretching along the marina. After sundown, enjoy the authentic Spanish cuisine at one of the stylish restaurants overlooking the sea; arroz a banda, the local version of paella, is highly recommended for an evening of mouthwatering dishes and coastline views. In fact, Alicante is a foodies' paradise, known for its fresh seafood and colourful cuisine!

Nestled at the foot of the Orihuela mountains, this historic city can be divided into three regions: the rural countryside, the coast and the city itself. Experience its authentic Spanish charm, cultural sites and natural beauty, including some glorious fine sand beaches.
The beautiful coastal resort of Jávea lies nestled between rocky headlands, with its picturesque old town and natural white sand beach. The intense blue water here makes it a paradise for artists and families looking for an unspoiled, quieter side to Alicante.

With over 1000 restaurants, upscale shopping areas, beaches galore and plenty of bars and clubs to let your hair down, this bustling metropolitan is perfect for a lively, sun-drenched break.
