Holiday Villa in Almunecar

Brilliant place - loved it. The property was in excellent condition, with all the amenities we needed. The complex has a pool which was really nice. Kids really enjoyed swimming in it. There are also amazing views over the sea from the property and pool. Couldn't have been happier. The beaches are great - nice water, great restaurants (and cheap!), the town is really nice too.
