During the afternoon the electric tripped again, all on its own, nothing was on, we were outside sunbathing. It became obvious that somebody had been into the villa whilst we were out and had changed or removed something. Went to bed at usual time but I was suddenly awakened, disorientated, and gasping for breath in total pitch black darkness at 4am, I soon realised that the main electric had tripped again, so had once more to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I did not get anymore sleep that night, worrying that it might trip again.

Day 3 Saturday. Another sunny day, another phone call to Villa Plus, getting to be a habit this, I reported the previous days issues, and explained my predicament regarding the possible impacts of the power cuts in the night. Later that day two men arrived, luckily one of them spoke a little English.

Thy examined Looked at the cracked, split, and dilapidated looking main fuse board, they adjusted and re-set the timing of the entry light that is an integral part of the board, pronouncing that it was all good!!!!!!!! Went to bed at usual time but, once again I was suddenly awakened in the middle of the night, gasping for breath, the electric had tripped again so had to once more I had to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I was not pleased.

Day 4 Sunday Another phone call to Villa Plus, and not willing to continue with this situation as it had ruined my holiday, I told them they have got to move me to another villa otherwise I was moving to a hotel and would send them the bill, they replied that they would try and sort it out and would get back to me.

Two hours later I phoned again only to be told they were trying and would get back as soon as they knew something. This was not acceptable, the day was disappearing fast, and I might have to go and find a hotel so in desperation I called the head office in St Albans, they said they would sort it, and within 20 minuets I had a call from a rep saying they could move me to a villa in Puerto del Carmen.

Villa Calima 3 turned out to be a newly renovated 3 bed Villa high up the hill in old town Puerto del Carmen, very nice, although outside space is very tight, there is a sea view, just, binoculars might be a good option, it has a smaller pool but overall suited our needs perfectly. No more problems, and enjoyed the remainder of our holiday. Would we rent from Villa Plus again? Yes, we have already booked for Cyprus in March. Villa Plus, overall, is good to deal with, their website is is clear and easy to navigate, and the booking process is the same, their reps and cleaning staff on Lanzarote are pleasant, and helpful, and their portfolio of villas they rent appears to be good.

Villa Pacifica is a very nice villa, it is in a very quiet area and is well proportioned it is just as described on the website, the pool is large and enclosed with a high wall and not overlooked, making it very private. On the minus side.

The beds and bed linen themselves in Villa Pacifica are very basic to say the least, thin mattresses, hard pillows, and the cheapest sheets available are not what many people are used to, it is hard to describe the feeling, and you can sleep, but is not good.

From my experience, outlined above, the maintenance practices are not up to standard, or to be expected, from a company of this standing, any problems not being able to be rectified before new tenants arrive should be pointed out to them, not left for them to find out for themselves causing unnecessary worry, anger, not to forget the bad feedback that could be generated.

Went to bed at usual time but, once again I was suddenly awakened in the middle of the night, gasping for breath, the electric had tripped again so had to once more I had to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I was not pleased. Day 4 Sunday Another phone call to Villa Plus, and not willing to continue with this situation as it had ruined my holiday, I told them they have got to move me to another villa otherwise I was moving to a hotel and would send them the bill, they replied that they would try and sort it out and would get back to me.

Two hours later I phoned again only to be told they were trying and would get back as soon as they knew something. This was not acceptable, the day was disappearing fast, and I might have to go and find a hotel so in desperation I called the head office in St Albans, they said they would sort it, and within 20 minuets I had a call from a rep saying they could move me to a villa in Puerto del Carmen.

Villa Calima 3 turned out to be a newly renovated 3 bed Villa high up the hill in old town Puerto del Carmen, very nice, although outside space is very tight, there is a sea view, just, binoculars might be a good option, it has a smaller pool but overall suited our needs perfectly. No more problems, and enjoyed the remainder of our holiday. Would we rent from Villa Plus again? Yes, we have already booked for Cyprus in March. Villa Plus, overall, is good to deal with, their website is is clear and easy to navigate, and the booking process is the same, their reps and cleaning staff on Lanzarote are pleasant, and helpful, and their portfolio of villas they rent appears to be good.

Villa Pacifica is a very nice villa, it is in a very quiet area and is well proportioned it is just as described on the website, the pool is large and enclosed with a high wall and not overlooked, making it very private.

On the minus side. The beds and bed linen themselves in Villa Pacifica are very basic to say the least, thin mattresses, hard pillows, and the cheapest sheets available are not what many people are used to, it is hard to describe the feeling, and you can sleep, but is not good.

From my experience, outlined above, the maintenance practices are not up to standard, or to be expected, from a company of this standing, any problems not being able to be rectified before new tenants arrive should be pointed out to them, not left for them to find out for themselves causing unnecessary worry, anger, not to forget the bad feedback that could be generated.

These three popular beaches located together around the Elviria area at Kms , and off the N coast road, all have very good facilities with plenty of restaurants and beach bars and adequate parking.

Try to park in the Avd. The Costa del Sol is known for many things: Sun, sea and sand are the usual three that holidaymakers are keen to mention, but one thing that they really shout about is the food. The area is known for blending the old and the new when it comes to cuisine, and there is a lot to experience in the more authentic, local restaurants.

If you really want to see the true Costa del Sol, there are few better ways to experience real Spanish culture than with a visit to a local produce market. The area has an abundance of them, though not all of them are food produce specific, and many of the opening times and days vary throughout the seasons — it's always best to check when you arrive so you don't venture out on a wasted journey!

For fresh fish and meat, fruit and veg, you will find that most towns will have a local Municipal Market, usually located near the heart of the old town - known locally as the Mercado Municipal. These local markets are usually only open in the mornings, generally between 9am and 1pm, with stalls displaying a great selection of fresh foods.

Each town will also have a specific day for their weekly "Rastro" markets which offer a combination of stalls, ranging from clothing to leather goods with a healthy dose of locally farmed produce too!

As with the majority of Spain, in Costa del Sol, be sure to expect a good punch of colour and flavour that has been perfected over hundreds of years. Whilst some dishes will have some modern touches, many of the region's favourites are old recipes that have been made time and time again — be sure to give something unexpected a try when you visit. Well-seasoned, this dish is refreshing and tasty, and is best served with freshly chopped peppers and onion.

Tapas — Costa del Sol is no exception to the Spanish love of tapas. These small plates are full of different ingredients and different tastes which can be mixed and matched with others to create an exciting dinner atmosphere, or can be great if you just fancy a small plate for a light meal. You can read more about the tapas dishes that the area is known for in our Guide to Costa del Sol. As an area that fully embraces the Mediterranean location, you can't help but associate the taste of their food with sun and holidays.

On a warm summer's evening, just serving up the right kind of food can even make dining in at home into a treat that feels distinctly Spanish, especially if you've got the right recipes to hand. Clams are a large part of the Costa del Sol foodie culture, as is the traditional dessert dish of Churros con chocolate. This recipe is simple but delicious, relying on high-quality ingredients to achieve that authentic depth and flavour.

Place them in a casserole dish or stew pot on a medium heat and stir in the onion, garlic and parsley. Cook for a minute or two, then sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper and turn the heat up. Once the clams have opened up and softened, the dish is ready to serve straight from the pot. Sprinkle with parsley to serve. Firstly, mix together the flour and the baking powder in a large bowl.

Then, mix through the olive oil and water to form a dough. Once the dough has reached the desired thick but flexible consistency, leave it to rest for around 30 minutes. After the dough has rested, heat the oil up in a sturdy frying pan and allow it to heat up — the oil should sizzle.

Fill a piping bag with your doughy mixture, and slowly pipe in reasonable lengths into the frying pan. Allow them to cook until golden, covering if necessary to ensure an even cook. For the chocolate dipping sauce, you should melt the two types on chocolate together, and stir to combine. To loosen the chocolate up, add a little of the milk and stir, continuing until you are happy that the churros can be dipped!

Serve the churros warm with the chocolate dip on the side, and enjoy! French Riviera. Italy Puglia. Portugal Algarve. Our finest villas that offer a little something extra. New to Villa Plus. Destination Villa Name Any Destination. All London.

Day 2 Friday. At 9 am phoned the Villa Plus rep to report these and the various other problems encountered the previous day and that the pool appeared to have sprung a leak. She was very apologetic and said leave the key in the lockbox and she would send someone to fix them a.

Soon after that a lady arrived with a small portable heater. After breakfast we decided to go down to the market held in the port, when we got back there was a hosepipe in the pool, I felt the water and it was freezzzzing, obviously not good for swimming. During the afternoon the electric tripped again, all on its own, nothing was on, we were outside sunbathing. It became obvious that somebody had been into the villa whilst we were out and had changed or removed something.

Went to bed at usual time but I was suddenly awakened, disorientated, and gasping for breath in total pitch black darkness at 4am, I soon realised that the main electric had tripped again, so had once more to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I did not get anymore sleep that night, worrying that it might trip again.

Day 3 Saturday. Another sunny day, another phone call to Villa Plus, getting to be a habit this, I reported the previous days issues, and explained my predicament regarding the possible impacts of the power cuts in the night.

Later that day two men arrived, luckily one of them spoke a little English. Thy examined Looked at the cracked, split, and dilapidated looking main fuse board, they adjusted and re-set the timing of the entry light that is an integral part of the board, pronouncing that it was all good!!!!!!!!

The promenade and beach areas are attractive with good safe bathing and sports facilities. Sotogrande at the far western end of the Costa del Sol and close to Gibraltar, is a top venue for golf and polo. It also boasts a fabulous marina with wildlife marshland and is a luxury beach resort. The fine beach club backs on to the wide sandy beach which is safe and clean for bathing and taking the sun. At the beach club there are many water sports and activities available, including pedalos, jet skis, speed boats, windsurfing, childens games and competitions, tennis and golf.

Also on site are excellent restaurant and bar facilities. Torreblanca and the adjoining resort of Los Boliches, both located on the eastern side of Fuengirola were awarded the Blue Flag for their beaches in Wide expanses of sand stretching several miles from Fuengirola along to Carvajal attract holiday makers and locals alike and the facilities are first class.

Plenty of beach bars and restaurants offering wonderful fish dishes and fresh char grilled sardines, sun bed and umbrella hire, toilets and beach showers.

Water sports on offers include pedaloes and windsurfing with several locations for 5 a side football. Well located just off the N at the Torremuelle exit with several beach bars and restaurants close at hand. The sandy beach is not huge but is clean, safe and well equipped with sunbed and umbrella hire, pedaloes, toilets and showers.

Parking on beach side is limited in high season but spaces available on other side of the road, with underpass access. Another popular beach on Benalmadena Costa is at Torrequebrada and access is from the N via the huge building which is the Torrequebarada Hotel and Casino on the beach side.

The beach has a couple of restaurants and bars with toilets and showers and all the usual facilities such as sunbed and umbrella hire, pedaloes and surfing. Parking is a little difficult in high season. A pleasant promenade overlooks the beach, and houses many popular restaurants and bars that are full to bursting point during the high season months.

The beach is clean and safe with excellent facilities including toilets and showers, sunbed and umbrella hire, jet-ski and speed boat hire close by from the marina, pedalos and wind surfing. Try to park in the Avd. The Costa del Sol is known for many things: Sun, sea and sand are the usual three that holidaymakers are keen to mention, but one thing that they really shout about is the food.

The area is known for blending the old and the new when it comes to cuisine, and there is a lot to experience in the more authentic, local restaurants. If you really want to see the true Costa del Sol, there are few better ways to experience real Spanish culture than with a visit to a local produce market.

The area has an abundance of them, though not all of them are food produce specific, and many of the opening times and days vary throughout the seasons — it's always best to check when you arrive so you don't venture out on a wasted journey! For fresh fish and meat, fruit and veg, you will find that most towns will have a local Municipal Market, usually located near the heart of the old town - known locally as the Mercado Municipal.

These local markets are usually only open in the mornings, generally between 9am and 1pm, with stalls displaying a great selection of fresh foods. Each town will also have a specific day for their weekly "Rastro" markets which offer a combination of stalls, ranging from clothing to leather goods with a healthy dose of locally farmed produce too! As with the majority of Spain, in Costa del Sol, be sure to expect a good punch of colour and flavour that has been perfected over hundreds of years.

Whilst some dishes will have some modern touches, many of the region's favourites are old recipes that have been made time and time again — be sure to give something unexpected a try when you visit.

Well-seasoned, this dish is refreshing and tasty, and is best served with freshly chopped peppers and onion. Tapas — Costa del Sol is no exception to the Spanish love of tapas. These small plates are full of different ingredients and different tastes which can be mixed and matched with others to create an exciting dinner atmosphere, or can be great if you just fancy a small plate for a light meal. You can read more about the tapas dishes that the area is known for in our Guide to Costa del Sol.

As an area that fully embraces the Mediterranean location, you can't help but associate the taste of their food with sun and holidays.

On a warm summer's evening, just serving up the right kind of food can even make dining in at home into a treat that feels distinctly Spanish, especially if you've got the right recipes to hand. Clams are a large part of the Costa del Sol foodie culture, as is the traditional dessert dish of Churros con chocolate. This recipe is simple but delicious, relying on high-quality ingredients to achieve that authentic depth and flavour. Place them in a casserole dish or stew pot on a medium heat and stir in the onion, garlic and parsley.

Cook for a minute or two, then sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper and turn the heat up. Once the clams have opened up and softened, the dish is ready to serve straight from the pot. Sprinkle with parsley to serve. Firstly, mix together the flour and the baking powder in a large bowl. Then, mix through the olive oil and water to form a dough. Once the dough has reached the desired thick but flexible consistency, leave it to rest for around 30 minutes. After the dough has rested, heat the oil up in a sturdy frying pan and allow it to heat up — the oil should sizzle.

Fill a piping bag with your doughy mixture, and slowly pipe in reasonable lengths into the frying pan.

Allow them to cook until golden, covering if necessary to ensure an even cook. For the chocolate dipping sauce, you should melt the two types on chocolate together, and stir to combine. To loosen the chocolate up, add a little of the milk and stir, continuing until you are happy that the churros can be dipped! Serve the churros warm with the chocolate dip on the side, and enjoy!

Greater seclusion Gated Pools Walk to beach Pool Heating Wi-fi Cars not required 4. Car useful There was also a strong smell of damp downstairs, I assume caused by the constant leaky shower. With a loose headboard jammed at the end! These were uncomfortable. Of the 2 beds which were actually real Of the 2 beds which were actually real beds one was very unstable and uncomfortable and when I lifted up the mattress to see why found a dirty sheet of chipboard holding the bed together!

So out of our whole party only one person had a decent bed to sleep in!!! Not what we were expecting considering the price we paid! These issues were brought up with the Rep the following Friday, her response was we should have contacted her earlier and this all could have been sorted out!

He said the dishwasher wasn't working because someone hadn't put salt and de-greaser in it, he replaced the kettle, he tried to fix leaking shower but failed, he didn't bother trying to fix toilet, and said the television had wrong scart lead. The general condition of the villa was run down and not at all as nice as the pictures made it seem, I have complained to villa plus and am still awaiting a response More.

Booked this villa through Villa Plus, as a four bedroom villa on arrival the 4th bedroom was a converted entrance hall with windows so high you could not see out them. The smell of drains hit us as soon as we opened the door, 2 of the sun beds were broken when we mentioned this to the Rep the reply was "there's enough for the adults" We paid for 3 children as well.

When we switched on the oven it was so encrusted with dirt it set off the fire alarm. The photos on Villa Plus website show lovely furniture on the patio this appears to have gone missing. The gardener walked into the garden with no notice and started to use a leaf blower while we were sitting at the pool. One of the toilet seats were broken on arrival and was still broken when we left. The Villa in general is run down and tired the photos on the website in no way reflect the true condition of the Villa.

When I wrote to complain Villa Plus replied that I should have brought up my complaints during my stay if I had done this I would have spent my whole holiday on the phone or waiting for a rep to visit to point out these faults in my opinion these faults should have been sorted beforehand surely this is their job. Had a wonderful holiday with Villa Plus. Villa was superb. Reps extremely helpful. Lovely area. Wouldn't book with anyone else Good flights with BA No delays Private transfer In a large people carrier No waiting and on time both ways.

We stayed here for a week it was fabulous!!! I could not say one negative thing about the holiday. I went with family and we all had an amazing time. The beach was near and shops and restaurants were in easy reach. The villa itself although it is near other villas it is very private. We had access to the villa at 1pm lunch time. Very clean and the maid came once in the week to clean which was good. I would highly recommend. Villa was spacious and clean.

All furniture both pool and otherwise were usable and comfy. There was enough plates, cutlery, glasses, pots and pans for all our needs.

We found the rep, cleaning lady, pool team and handy man all to be helpful and courteous. We all had a great time. We picked up our hire car, and followed the excellent directions you supplied straight to the villa without problem. On arrival Late morning your representative was just leaving the property, she told us all about the villa including the fact that this particular villa received the BBC and ITV channels on the television, which we thought was a welcome bonus. On first inspection we thought the villa was exceptionally good, and way above our expectations, and it appeared to have everything we could possibly need.

I felt the temperature of the pool and thought it a little cool, and I also noticed that the level was about 2 inches below the skimmer, but did not think it significant and thought nothing of it at the time. When we had unpacked, I connected my laptop to the Wi-Fi address as printed in the villas very comprehensive information book without any problems, I connected to the BBC i-player and listened to the mid-day BBC news whilst checking my emails, no problems!!! Began to think that out toast had fallen jam side up for a change!!!

After dinner we began to watch the English television, it began to get cold inside the villa, but thought No Problem, I will warm the place a little so switched the air conditioner to the warm setting and fired it up, big mistake that, the noise it made was so loud we had to chose between staying cold or to turn the volume up on the television to hear it. About half an hour later the main electric switch tripped, leaving us in total darkness, unfortunately I had no idea where the fuse box was located, but luckily I had made a mental note of where the emergency torch was located so carefully found it and tried to switch it on, only to find that someone had put a replica torch there instead of a real one!!!

I suppose some one thought it funny, but I certainly did not. My wife thought that she had seen the switchbox on the wall by the backdoor so I felt my way there, found it and switched it back on. I suffer from acute sleep apnea, and as I had already set up my Continuous positive airway pressure CPAP machine to ensure my being able to breath during sleep, we retired to bed around pm. Day 2 Friday. At 9 am phoned the Villa Plus rep to report these and the various other problems encountered the previous day and that the pool appeared to have sprung a leak.

She was very apologetic and said leave the key in the lockbox and she would send someone to fix them a. Soon after that a lady arrived with a small portable heater. After breakfast we decided to go down to the market held in the port, when we got back there was a hosepipe in the pool, I felt the water and it was freezzzzing, obviously not good for swimming. During the afternoon the electric tripped again, all on its own, nothing was on, we were outside sunbathing.

It became obvious that somebody had been into the villa whilst we were out and had changed or removed something. Went to bed at usual time but I was suddenly awakened, disorientated, and gasping for breath in total pitch black darkness at 4am, I soon realised that the main electric had tripped again, so had once more to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I did not get anymore sleep that night, worrying that it might trip again.

Day 3 Saturday. Another sunny day, another phone call to Villa Plus, getting to be a habit this, I reported the previous days issues, and explained my predicament regarding the possible impacts of the power cuts in the night.

Later that day two men arrived, luckily one of them spoke a little English. Thy examined Looked at the cracked, split, and dilapidated looking main fuse board, they adjusted and re-set the timing of the entry light that is an integral part of the board, pronouncing that it was all good!!!!!!!! Went to bed at usual time but, once again I was suddenly awakened in the middle of the night, gasping for breath, the electric had tripped again so had to once more I had to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I was not pleased.

Day 4 Sunday Another phone call to Villa Plus, and not willing to continue with this situation as it had ruined my holiday, I told them they have got to move me to another villa otherwise I was moving to a hotel and would send them the bill, they replied that they would try and sort it out and would get back to me.

Two hours later I phoned again only to be told they were trying and would get back as soon as they knew something. This was not acceptable, the day was disappearing fast, and I might have to go and find a hotel so in desperation I called the head office in St Albans, they said they would sort it, and within 20 minuets I had a call from a rep saying they could move me to a villa in Puerto del Carmen. Villa Calima 3 turned out to be a newly renovated 3 bed Villa high up the hill in old town Puerto del Carmen, very nice, although outside space is very tight, there is a sea view, just, binoculars might be a good option, it has a smaller pool but overall suited our needs perfectly.

No more problems, and enjoyed the remainder of our holiday. Would we rent from Villa Plus again? Yes, we have already booked for Cyprus in March.

Villa Plus, overall, is good to deal with, their website is is clear and easy to navigate, and the booking process is the same, their reps and cleaning staff on Lanzarote are pleasant, and helpful, and their portfolio of villas they rent appears to be good. Villa Pacifica is a very nice villa, it is in a very quiet area and is well proportioned it is just as described on the website, the pool is large and enclosed with a high wall and not overlooked, making it very private.

On the minus side. The beds and bed linen themselves in Villa Pacifica are very basic to say the least, thin mattresses, hard pillows, and the cheapest sheets available are not what many people are used to, it is hard to describe the feeling, and you can sleep, but is not good.

From my experience, outlined above, the maintenance practices are not up to standard, or to be expected, from a company of this standing, any problems not being able to be rectified before new tenants arrive should be pointed out to them, not left for them to find out for themselves causing unnecessary worry, anger, not to forget the bad feedback that could be generated.

Once the clams have opened up and softened, the dish is ready to serve straight from the pot. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.

Firstly, mix together the flour and the baking powder in a large bowl. Then, mix through the olive oil and water to form a dough. Once the dough has reached the desired thick but flexible consistency, leave it to rest for around 30 minutes.

After the dough has rested, heat the oil up in a sturdy frying pan and allow it to heat up — the oil should sizzle. Fill a piping bag with your doughy mixture, and slowly pipe in reasonable lengths into the frying pan. Allow them to cook until golden, covering if necessary to ensure an even cook.

For the chocolate dipping sauce, you should melt the two types on chocolate together, and stir to combine. To loosen the chocolate up, add a little of the milk and stir, continuing until you are happy that the churros can be dipped!

Serve the churros warm with the chocolate dip on the side, and enjoy! French Riviera. Italy Puglia. Portugal Algarve. Our finest villas that offer a little something extra. New to Villa Plus.

The photos on Villa Plus website show lovely furniture on the patio this appears to have gone missing. The gardener walked into the garden with no notice and started to use a leaf blower while we were sitting at the pool. One of the toilet seats were broken on arrival and was still broken when we left. The Villa in general is run down and tired the photos on the website in no way reflect the true condition of the Villa.

When I wrote to complain Villa Plus replied that I should have brought up my complaints during my stay if I had done this I would have spent my whole holiday on the phone or waiting for a rep to visit to point out these faults in my opinion these faults should have been sorted beforehand surely this is their job. Had a wonderful holiday with Villa Plus.

Villa was superb. Reps extremely helpful. Lovely area. Wouldn't book with anyone else Good flights with BA No delays Private transfer In a large people carrier No waiting and on time both ways.

We stayed here for a week it was fabulous!!! I could not say one negative thing about the holiday. I went with family and we all had an amazing time. The beach was near and shops and restaurants were in easy reach. The villa itself although it is near other villas it is very private. We had access to the villa at 1pm lunch time. Very clean and the maid came once in the week to clean which was good. I would highly recommend. Villa was spacious and clean. All furniture both pool and otherwise were usable and comfy.

There was enough plates, cutlery, glasses, pots and pans for all our needs. We found the rep, cleaning lady, pool team and handy man all to be helpful and courteous. We all had a great time. We picked up our hire car, and followed the excellent directions you supplied straight to the villa without problem.

On arrival Late morning your representative was just leaving the property, she told us all about the villa including the fact that this particular villa received the BBC and ITV channels on the television, which we thought was a welcome bonus.

On first inspection we thought the villa was exceptionally good, and way above our expectations, and it appeared to have everything we could possibly need.

I felt the temperature of the pool and thought it a little cool, and I also noticed that the level was about 2 inches below the skimmer, but did not think it significant and thought nothing of it at the time. When we had unpacked, I connected my laptop to the Wi-Fi address as printed in the villas very comprehensive information book without any problems, I connected to the BBC i-player and listened to the mid-day BBC news whilst checking my emails, no problems!!!

Began to think that out toast had fallen jam side up for a change!!! After dinner we began to watch the English television, it began to get cold inside the villa, but thought No Problem, I will warm the place a little so switched the air conditioner to the warm setting and fired it up, big mistake that, the noise it made was so loud we had to chose between staying cold or to turn the volume up on the television to hear it.

About half an hour later the main electric switch tripped, leaving us in total darkness, unfortunately I had no idea where the fuse box was located, but luckily I had made a mental note of where the emergency torch was located so carefully found it and tried to switch it on, only to find that someone had put a replica torch there instead of a real one!!!

I suppose some one thought it funny, but I certainly did not. My wife thought that she had seen the switchbox on the wall by the backdoor so I felt my way there, found it and switched it back on. I suffer from acute sleep apnea, and as I had already set up my Continuous positive airway pressure CPAP machine to ensure my being able to breath during sleep, we retired to bed around pm.

Day 2 Friday. At 9 am phoned the Villa Plus rep to report these and the various other problems encountered the previous day and that the pool appeared to have sprung a leak. She was very apologetic and said leave the key in the lockbox and she would send someone to fix them a. Soon after that a lady arrived with a small portable heater. After breakfast we decided to go down to the market held in the port, when we got back there was a hosepipe in the pool, I felt the water and it was freezzzzing, obviously not good for swimming.

During the afternoon the electric tripped again, all on its own, nothing was on, we were outside sunbathing. It became obvious that somebody had been into the villa whilst we were out and had changed or removed something. Went to bed at usual time but I was suddenly awakened, disorientated, and gasping for breath in total pitch black darkness at 4am, I soon realised that the main electric had tripped again, so had once more to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I did not get anymore sleep that night, worrying that it might trip again.

Day 3 Saturday. Another sunny day, another phone call to Villa Plus, getting to be a habit this, I reported the previous days issues, and explained my predicament regarding the possible impacts of the power cuts in the night.

Later that day two men arrived, luckily one of them spoke a little English. Thy examined Looked at the cracked, split, and dilapidated looking main fuse board, they adjusted and re-set the timing of the entry light that is an integral part of the board, pronouncing that it was all good!!!!!!!!

Went to bed at usual time but, once again I was suddenly awakened in the middle of the night, gasping for breath, the electric had tripped again so had to once more I had to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I was not pleased.

Try to park in the Avd. The Costa del Sol is known for many things: Sun, sea and sand are the usual three that holidaymakers are keen to mention, but one thing that they really shout about is the food.

The area is known for blending the old and the new when it comes to cuisine, and there is a lot to experience in the more authentic, local restaurants. If you really want to see the true Costa del Sol, there are few better ways to experience real Spanish culture than with a visit to a local produce market. The area has an abundance of them, though not all of them are food produce specific, and many of the opening times and days vary throughout the seasons — it's always best to check when you arrive so you don't venture out on a wasted journey!

For fresh fish and meat, fruit and veg, you will find that most towns will have a local Municipal Market, usually located near the heart of the old town - known locally as the Mercado Municipal. These local markets are usually only open in the mornings, generally between 9am and 1pm, with stalls displaying a great selection of fresh foods. Each town will also have a specific day for their weekly "Rastro" markets which offer a combination of stalls, ranging from clothing to leather goods with a healthy dose of locally farmed produce too!

As with the majority of Spain, in Costa del Sol, be sure to expect a good punch of colour and flavour that has been perfected over hundreds of years. Whilst some dishes will have some modern touches, many of the region's favourites are old recipes that have been made time and time again — be sure to give something unexpected a try when you visit. Well-seasoned, this dish is refreshing and tasty, and is best served with freshly chopped peppers and onion. Tapas — Costa del Sol is no exception to the Spanish love of tapas.

These small plates are full of different ingredients and different tastes which can be mixed and matched with others to create an exciting dinner atmosphere, or can be great if you just fancy a small plate for a light meal.

You can read more about the tapas dishes that the area is known for in our Guide to Costa del Sol. As an area that fully embraces the Mediterranean location, you can't help but associate the taste of their food with sun and holidays.

On a warm summer's evening, just serving up the right kind of food can even make dining in at home into a treat that feels distinctly Spanish, especially if you've got the right recipes to hand. Clams are a large part of the Costa del Sol foodie culture, as is the traditional dessert dish of Churros con chocolate.

This recipe is simple but delicious, relying on high-quality ingredients to achieve that authentic depth and flavour. Place them in a casserole dish or stew pot on a medium heat and stir in the onion, garlic and parsley. Cook for a minute or two, then sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper and turn the heat up.

Once the clams have opened up and softened, the dish is ready to serve straight from the pot. Sprinkle with parsley to serve. Firstly, mix together the flour and the baking powder in a large bowl. Then, mix through the olive oil and water to form a dough. Once the dough has reached the desired thick but flexible consistency, leave it to rest for around 30 minutes.

After the dough has rested, heat the oil up in a sturdy frying pan and allow it to heat up — the oil should sizzle. Fill a piping bag with your doughy mixture, and slowly pipe in reasonable lengths into the frying pan.

Allow them to cook until golden, covering if necessary to ensure an even cook. For the chocolate dipping sauce, you should melt the two types on chocolate together, and stir to combine.

To loosen the chocolate up, add a little of the milk and stir, continuing until you are happy that the churros can be dipped! Serve the churros warm with the chocolate dip on the side, and enjoy!

Lots of bars and restaurants close at hand and the usual facilities. These three popular beaches located together around the Elviria area at Kms , and off the N coast road, all have very good facilities with plenty of restaurants and beach bars and adequate parking.

They are all reached down small roads through urbanisations and there is no promenade linking the three.

Try to park in the Avd. The Costa del Sol is known for many things: Sun, sea and sand are the usual three that holidaymakers are keen to mention, but one thing that they really shout about is the food.

The area is known for blending the old and the new when it comes to cuisine, and there is a lot to experience in the more authentic, local restaurants. If you really want to see the true Costa del Sol, there are few better ways to experience real Spanish culture than with a visit to a local produce market. The area has an abundance of them, though not all of them are food produce specific, and many of the opening times and days vary throughout the seasons — it's always best to check when you arrive so you don't venture out on a wasted journey!

For fresh fish and meat, fruit and veg, you will find that most towns will have a local Municipal Market, usually located near the heart of the old town - known locally as the Mercado Municipal. These local markets are usually only open in the mornings, generally between 9am and 1pm, with stalls displaying a great selection of fresh foods. Each town will also have a specific day for their weekly "Rastro" markets which offer a combination of stalls, ranging from clothing to leather goods with a healthy dose of locally farmed produce too!

As with the majority of Spain, in Costa del Sol, be sure to expect a good punch of colour and flavour that has been perfected over hundreds of years. Whilst some dishes will have some modern touches, many of the region's favourites are old recipes that have been made time and time again — be sure to give something unexpected a try when you visit. Well-seasoned, this dish is refreshing and tasty, and is best served with freshly chopped peppers and onion. Tapas — Costa del Sol is no exception to the Spanish love of tapas.

These small plates are full of different ingredients and different tastes which can be mixed and matched with others to create an exciting dinner atmosphere, or can be great if you just fancy a small plate for a light meal.

You can read more about the tapas dishes that the area is known for in our Guide to Costa del Sol. As an area that fully embraces the Mediterranean location, you can't help but associate the taste of their food with sun and holidays.

On a warm summer's evening, just serving up the right kind of food can even make dining in at home into a treat that feels distinctly Spanish, especially if you've got the right recipes to hand. Clams are a large part of the Costa del Sol foodie culture, as is the traditional dessert dish of Churros con chocolate.

This recipe is simple but delicious, relying on high-quality ingredients to achieve that authentic depth and flavour. Place them in a casserole dish or stew pot on a medium heat and stir in the onion, garlic and parsley. Cook for a minute or two, then sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper and turn the heat up. Once the clams have opened up and softened, the dish is ready to serve straight from the pot. Sprinkle with parsley to serve. Firstly, mix together the flour and the baking powder in a large bowl.

Then, mix through the olive oil and water to form a dough. Once the dough has reached the desired thick but flexible consistency, leave it to rest for around 30 minutes. After the dough has rested, heat the oil up in a sturdy frying pan and allow it to heat up — the oil should sizzle. Fill a piping bag with your doughy mixture, and slowly pipe in reasonable lengths into the frying pan.

Allow them to cook until golden, covering if necessary to ensure an even cook. For the chocolate dipping sauce, you should melt the two types on chocolate together, and stir to combine. To loosen the chocolate up, add a little of the milk and stir, continuing until you are happy that the churros can be dipped! Serve the churros warm with the chocolate dip on the side, and enjoy!

Villas Holidays in the Costa del Sol The Costa del Sol remains one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe — and we can certainly see why.

We arrived Friday 1st and started to unpack and within 30 mins we noticed our 18 month olds feet were filthy and on inspecting the floors found them to be dirty, the next day during our shopping trip for supplies we bought cleaning products and cleaned the villa! Along with toilet paper, hand wash etc We found the television on the ground floor didn't work with DVD player, both these problems were reported to the Rep on Sunday 3rd. A single cleaner came the next day and wiped a mop over a few floors but was gone within 15 mins.

And the pool balls themselves looked like they had been used to clear mines! There was also a strong smell of damp downstairs, I assume caused by the constant leaky shower.

With a loose headboard jammed at the end! These were uncomfortable. Of the 2 beds which were actually real Of the 2 beds which were actually real beds one was very unstable and uncomfortable and when I lifted up the mattress to see why found a dirty sheet of chipboard holding the bed together!

So out of our whole party only one person had a decent bed to sleep in!!! Not what we were expecting considering the price we paid! These issues were brought up with the Rep the following Friday, her response was we should have contacted her earlier and this all could have been sorted out! He said the dishwasher wasn't working because someone hadn't put salt and de-greaser in it, he replaced the kettle, he tried to fix leaking shower but failed, he didn't bother trying to fix toilet, and said the television had wrong scart lead.

The general condition of the villa was run down and not at all as nice as the pictures made it seem, I have complained to villa plus and am still awaiting a response More.

Booked this villa through Villa Plus, as a four bedroom villa on arrival the 4th bedroom was a converted entrance hall with windows so high you could not see out them. The smell of drains hit us as soon as we opened the door, 2 of the sun beds were broken when we mentioned this to the Rep the reply was "there's enough for the adults" We paid for 3 children as well.

When we switched on the oven it was so encrusted with dirt it set off the fire alarm. The photos on Villa Plus website show lovely furniture on the patio this appears to have gone missing. The gardener walked into the garden with no notice and started to use a leaf blower while we were sitting at the pool. One of the toilet seats were broken on arrival and was still broken when we left.

The Villa in general is run down and tired the photos on the website in no way reflect the true condition of the Villa. When I wrote to complain Villa Plus replied that I should have brought up my complaints during my stay if I had done this I would have spent my whole holiday on the phone or waiting for a rep to visit to point out these faults in my opinion these faults should have been sorted beforehand surely this is their job.

Had a wonderful holiday with Villa Plus. Villa was superb. Reps extremely helpful. Lovely area. Wouldn't book with anyone else Good flights with BA No delays Private transfer In a large people carrier No waiting and on time both ways. We stayed here for a week it was fabulous!!! I could not say one negative thing about the holiday.

I went with family and we all had an amazing time. The beach was near and shops and restaurants were in easy reach. The villa itself although it is near other villas it is very private. We had access to the villa at 1pm lunch time. Very clean and the maid came once in the week to clean which was good. I would highly recommend. Villa was spacious and clean.

All furniture both pool and otherwise were usable and comfy. There was enough plates, cutlery, glasses, pots and pans for all our needs. We found the rep, cleaning lady, pool team and handy man all to be helpful and courteous. We all had a great time. We picked up our hire car, and followed the excellent directions you supplied straight to the villa without problem. On arrival Late morning your representative was just leaving the property, she told us all about the villa including the fact that this particular villa received the BBC and ITV channels on the television, which we thought was a welcome bonus.

On first inspection we thought the villa was exceptionally good, and way above our expectations, and it appeared to have everything we could possibly need. I felt the temperature of the pool and thought it a little cool, and I also noticed that the level was about 2 inches below the skimmer, but did not think it significant and thought nothing of it at the time.

When we had unpacked, I connected my laptop to the Wi-Fi address as printed in the villas very comprehensive information book without any problems, I connected to the BBC i-player and listened to the mid-day BBC news whilst checking my emails, no problems!!! Began to think that out toast had fallen jam side up for a change!!!

After dinner we began to watch the English television, it began to get cold inside the villa, but thought No Problem, I will warm the place a little so switched the air conditioner to the warm setting and fired it up, big mistake that, the noise it made was so loud we had to chose between staying cold or to turn the volume up on the television to hear it. About half an hour later the main electric switch tripped, leaving us in total darkness, unfortunately I had no idea where the fuse box was located, but luckily I had made a mental note of where the emergency torch was located so carefully found it and tried to switch it on, only to find that someone had put a replica torch there instead of a real one!!!

I suppose some one thought it funny, but I certainly did not. My wife thought that she had seen the switchbox on the wall by the backdoor so I felt my way there, found it and switched it back on.

I suffer from acute sleep apnea, and as I had already set up my Continuous positive airway pressure CPAP machine to ensure my being able to breath during sleep, we retired to bed around pm. Day 2 Friday. At 9 am phoned the Villa Plus rep to report these and the various other problems encountered the previous day and that the pool appeared to have sprung a leak.

She was very apologetic and said leave the key in the lockbox and she would send someone to fix them a. Soon after that a lady arrived with a small portable heater. After breakfast we decided to go down to the market held in the port, when we got back there was a hosepipe in the pool, I felt the water and it was freezzzzing, obviously not good for swimming.

During the afternoon the electric tripped again, all on its own, nothing was on, we were outside sunbathing. It became obvious that somebody had been into the villa whilst we were out and had changed or removed something. Went to bed at usual time but I was suddenly awakened, disorientated, and gasping for breath in total pitch black darkness at 4am, I soon realised that the main electric had tripped again, so had once more to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I did not get anymore sleep that night, worrying that it might trip again.

Day 3 Saturday. Another sunny day, another phone call to Villa Plus, getting to be a habit this, I reported the previous days issues, and explained my predicament regarding the possible impacts of the power cuts in the night. Later that day two men arrived, luckily one of them spoke a little English.

Thy examined Looked at the cracked, split, and dilapidated looking main fuse board, they adjusted and re-set the timing of the entry light that is an integral part of the board, pronouncing that it was all good!!!!!!!! Went to bed at usual time but, once again I was suddenly awakened in the middle of the night, gasping for breath, the electric had tripped again so had to once more I had to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I was not pleased.

Day 4 Sunday Another phone call to Villa Plus, and not willing to continue with this situation as it had ruined my holiday, I told them they have got to move me to another villa otherwise I was moving to a hotel and would send them the bill, they replied that they would try and sort it out and would get back to me.

Two hours later I phoned again only to be told they were trying and would get back as soon as they knew something. This was not acceptable, the day was disappearing fast, and I might have to go and find a hotel so in desperation I called the head office in St Albans, they said they would sort it, and within 20 minuets I had a call from a rep saying they could move me to a villa in Puerto del Carmen. Villa Calima 3 turned out to be a newly renovated 3 bed Villa high up the hill in old town Puerto del Carmen, very nice, although outside space is very tight, there is a sea view, just, binoculars might be a good option, it has a smaller pool but overall suited our needs perfectly.

No more problems, and enjoyed the remainder of our holiday. Would we rent from Villa Plus again?

No more problems, and enjoyed the remainder of our holiday. Would we rent from Villa Plus again? Yes, we have already booked for Cyprus in March.

Villa Plus, overall, is good to deal with, their website is is clear and easy to navigate, and the booking process is the same, their reps and cleaning staff on Lanzarote are pleasant, and helpful, and their portfolio of villas they rent appears to be good.

Villa Pacifica is a very nice villa, it is in a very quiet area and is well proportioned it is just as described on the website, the pool is large and enclosed with a high wall and not overlooked, making it very private. On the minus side. The beds and bed linen themselves in Villa Pacifica are very basic to say the least, thin mattresses, hard pillows, and the cheapest sheets available are not what many people are used to, it is hard to describe the feeling, and you can sleep, but is not good.

From my experience, outlined above, the maintenance practices are not up to standard, or to be expected, from a company of this standing, any problems not being able to be rectified before new tenants arrive should be pointed out to them, not left for them to find out for themselves causing unnecessary worry, anger, not to forget the bad feedback that could be generated.

Puerto Banus is the ideal place for an exclusive selection of designer shops, restaurants and nightlife entertainment , together with an incredible display of yachts and pleaseure boats in the Marina.

To the east, towards Marbella town at a distance, the beach is mostly boarded by a relaxing promenade and leads you along the 'Golden Mile' streach of beaches with its array of top grade Hotels, beach bars and beach clubs along the way. Windsurfing and pedalo hire are available as well as jet ski and speed boat hire, at selected beach areas on this part of the Marbella coastline.

Playa Puerto Banus is another very popular beach and without doubt the place to be seen! Protected to the west by the marina jetty, it stretches along to the east and is overlooked by the Marbella Club. If the beach was crowded you might be tempted to spend a day at its beach club and rub shoulders with the rich and famous.

If not, then be prepared for a crowded beach. Lots of bars and restaurants close at hand and the usual facilities. These three popular beaches located together around the Elviria area at Kms , and off the N coast road, all have very good facilities with plenty of restaurants and beach bars and adequate parking.

They are all reached down small roads through urbanisations and there is no promenade linking the three. Needless to say they do get busy during high season, especially at weekends with the locals but with daily cleaning, the beaches are safe and the atmosphere is always good.

Access the beach by turning off the N at Sitio de Calahonda and taking the narrow road down with Mcdonalds on the left side. There is a car park and a flight of steps lead down to a fairly narrow beach with a restaurant and bar and sun bed and umbrella hire. Very popular at weekends when parking could become difficult. Sabinillas is a fairly large coastal town located on the N coast road in between the exits for the inland villages of Casares and Manilva.

Not regarded as a holiday resort, the long sandy beaches are popular with the locals and those that know about them with good facilities including bed and umbrella hire. A real Spanish town with good shopping and a weekly market that is well worth visiting for its beach and typical bars and restaurants serving exquisite fish dishes. No promenade as such but plenty of parking in the little side streets leading down to the beach. San Pedro is an attractive market town with its centre lying around yards from the coast on the N San Pedro beach is one of a series of long clean sandy beaches running from Puerto Banus to Guadalmina.

The promenade and beach areas are attractive with good safe bathing and sports facilities. Sotogrande at the far western end of the Costa del Sol and close to Gibraltar, is a top venue for golf and polo.

It also boasts a fabulous marina with wildlife marshland and is a luxury beach resort. The fine beach club backs on to the wide sandy beach which is safe and clean for bathing and taking the sun.

At the beach club there are many water sports and activities available, including pedalos, jet skis, speed boats, windsurfing, childens games and competitions, tennis and golf.

Also on site are excellent restaurant and bar facilities. Torreblanca and the adjoining resort of Los Boliches, both located on the eastern side of Fuengirola were awarded the Blue Flag for their beaches in Wide expanses of sand stretching several miles from Fuengirola along to Carvajal attract holiday makers and locals alike and the facilities are first class.

Plenty of beach bars and restaurants offering wonderful fish dishes and fresh char grilled sardines, sun bed and umbrella hire, toilets and beach showers. Water sports on offers include pedaloes and windsurfing with several locations for 5 a side football. Well located just off the N at the Torremuelle exit with several beach bars and restaurants close at hand.

The sandy beach is not huge but is clean, safe and well equipped with sunbed and umbrella hire, pedaloes, toilets and showers. Parking on beach side is limited in high season but spaces available on other side of the road, with underpass access. Another popular beach on Benalmadena Costa is at Torrequebrada and access is from the N via the huge building which is the Torrequebarada Hotel and Casino on the beach side.

The beach has a couple of restaurants and bars with toilets and showers and all the usual facilities such as sunbed and umbrella hire, pedaloes and surfing.

Parking is a little difficult in high season. A pleasant promenade overlooks the beach, and houses many popular restaurants and bars that are full to bursting point during the high season months.

The beach is clean and safe with excellent facilities including toilets and showers, sunbed and umbrella hire, jet-ski and speed boat hire close by from the marina, pedalos and wind surfing. Try to park in the Avd. The Costa del Sol is known for many things: Sun, sea and sand are the usual three that holidaymakers are keen to mention, but one thing that they really shout about is the food.

The area is known for blending the old and the new when it comes to cuisine, and there is a lot to experience in the more authentic, local restaurants.

If you really want to see the true Costa del Sol, there are few better ways to experience real Spanish culture than with a visit to a local produce market. The area has an abundance of them, though not all of them are food produce specific, and many of the opening times and days vary throughout the seasons — it's always best to check when you arrive so you don't venture out on a wasted journey!

For fresh fish and meat, fruit and veg, you will find that most towns will have a local Municipal Market, usually located near the heart of the old town - known locally as the Mercado Municipal. These local markets are usually only open in the mornings, generally between 9am and 1pm, with stalls displaying a great selection of fresh foods. Each town will also have a specific day for their weekly "Rastro" markets which offer a combination of stalls, ranging from clothing to leather goods with a healthy dose of locally farmed produce too!

As with the majority of Spain, in Costa del Sol, be sure to expect a good punch of colour and flavour that has been perfected over hundreds of years. Whilst some dishes will have some modern touches, many of the region's favourites are old recipes that have been made time and time again — be sure to give something unexpected a try when you visit.

Well-seasoned, this dish is refreshing and tasty, and is best served with freshly chopped peppers and onion. Tapas — Costa del Sol is no exception to the Spanish love of tapas.

These small plates are full of different ingredients and different tastes which can be mixed and matched with others to create an exciting dinner atmosphere, or can be great if you just fancy a small plate for a light meal. You can read more about the tapas dishes that the area is known for in our Guide to Costa del Sol.

As an area that fully embraces the Mediterranean location, you can't help but associate the taste of their food with sun and holidays. On a warm summer's evening, just serving up the right kind of food can even make dining in at home into a treat that feels distinctly Spanish, especially if you've got the right recipes to hand.

Clams are a large part of the Costa del Sol foodie culture, as is the traditional dessert dish of Churros con chocolate. This recipe is simple but delicious, relying on high-quality ingredients to achieve that authentic depth and flavour. Place them in a casserole dish or stew pot on a medium heat and stir in the onion, garlic and parsley.

Cook for a minute or two, then sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper and turn the heat up. Once the clams have opened up and softened, the dish is ready to serve straight from the pot.

Sprinkle with parsley to serve. Firstly, mix together the flour and the baking powder in a large bowl. Then, mix through the olive oil and water to form a dough. Once the dough has reached the desired thick but flexible consistency, leave it to rest for around 30 minutes. After the dough has rested, heat the oil up in a sturdy frying pan and allow it to heat up — the oil should sizzle.

Fill a piping bag with your doughy mixture, and slowly pipe in reasonable lengths into the frying pan. Allow them to cook until golden, covering if necessary to ensure an even cook.

For the chocolate dipping sauce, you should melt the two types on chocolate together, and stir to combine. To loosen the chocolate up, add a little of the milk and stir, continuing until you are happy that the churros can be dipped! Serve the churros warm with the chocolate dip on the side, and enjoy!

Booked this villa through Villa Plus, as a four bedroom villa on arrival the 4th bedroom was a converted entrance hall with windows so high you could not see out them. The smell of drains hit us as soon as we opened the door, 2 of the sun beds were broken when we mentioned this to the Rep the reply was "there's enough for the adults" We paid for 3 children as well.

When we switched on the oven it was so encrusted with dirt it set off the fire alarm. The photos on Villa Plus website show lovely furniture on the patio this appears to have gone missing. The gardener walked into the garden with no notice and started to use a leaf blower while we were sitting at the pool. One of the toilet seats were broken on arrival and was still broken when we left. The Villa in general is run down and tired the photos on the website in no way reflect the true condition of the Villa.

When I wrote to complain Villa Plus replied that I should have brought up my complaints during my stay if I had done this I would have spent my whole holiday on the phone or waiting for a rep to visit to point out these faults in my opinion these faults should have been sorted beforehand surely this is their job.

Had a wonderful holiday with Villa Plus. Villa was superb. Reps extremely helpful. Lovely area. Wouldn't book with anyone else Good flights with BA No delays Private transfer In a large people carrier No waiting and on time both ways.

We stayed here for a week it was fabulous!!! I could not say one negative thing about the holiday. I went with family and we all had an amazing time. The beach was near and shops and restaurants were in easy reach. The villa itself although it is near other villas it is very private.

We had access to the villa at 1pm lunch time. Very clean and the maid came once in the week to clean which was good. I would highly recommend. Villa was spacious and clean. All furniture both pool and otherwise were usable and comfy. There was enough plates, cutlery, glasses, pots and pans for all our needs. We found the rep, cleaning lady, pool team and handy man all to be helpful and courteous.

We all had a great time. We picked up our hire car, and followed the excellent directions you supplied straight to the villa without problem. On arrival Late morning your representative was just leaving the property, she told us all about the villa including the fact that this particular villa received the BBC and ITV channels on the television, which we thought was a welcome bonus. On first inspection we thought the villa was exceptionally good, and way above our expectations, and it appeared to have everything we could possibly need.

I felt the temperature of the pool and thought it a little cool, and I also noticed that the level was about 2 inches below the skimmer, but did not think it significant and thought nothing of it at the time. When we had unpacked, I connected my laptop to the Wi-Fi address as printed in the villas very comprehensive information book without any problems, I connected to the BBC i-player and listened to the mid-day BBC news whilst checking my emails, no problems!!!

Began to think that out toast had fallen jam side up for a change!!! After dinner we began to watch the English television, it began to get cold inside the villa, but thought No Problem, I will warm the place a little so switched the air conditioner to the warm setting and fired it up, big mistake that, the noise it made was so loud we had to chose between staying cold or to turn the volume up on the television to hear it.

About half an hour later the main electric switch tripped, leaving us in total darkness, unfortunately I had no idea where the fuse box was located, but luckily I had made a mental note of where the emergency torch was located so carefully found it and tried to switch it on, only to find that someone had put a replica torch there instead of a real one!!!

I suppose some one thought it funny, but I certainly did not. My wife thought that she had seen the switchbox on the wall by the backdoor so I felt my way there, found it and switched it back on. I suffer from acute sleep apnea, and as I had already set up my Continuous positive airway pressure CPAP machine to ensure my being able to breath during sleep, we retired to bed around pm.

Day 2 Friday. At 9 am phoned the Villa Plus rep to report these and the various other problems encountered the previous day and that the pool appeared to have sprung a leak. She was very apologetic and said leave the key in the lockbox and she would send someone to fix them a. Soon after that a lady arrived with a small portable heater. After breakfast we decided to go down to the market held in the port, when we got back there was a hosepipe in the pool, I felt the water and it was freezzzzing, obviously not good for swimming.

During the afternoon the electric tripped again, all on its own, nothing was on, we were outside sunbathing. It became obvious that somebody had been into the villa whilst we were out and had changed or removed something.

Went to bed at usual time but I was suddenly awakened, disorientated, and gasping for breath in total pitch black darkness at 4am, I soon realised that the main electric had tripped again, so had once more to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I did not get anymore sleep that night, worrying that it might trip again. Day 3 Saturday.

Another sunny day, another phone call to Villa Plus, getting to be a habit this, I reported the previous days issues, and explained my predicament regarding the possible impacts of the power cuts in the night.

Mar 28, - Villa Jose Lucien In Frigiliana, Costa del Sol | Villa Plus. Villa Luz Marbelli In Guadalmina, Costa del Sol | Villa Plus. Villa Plus has over holiday villas spread over 8 destinations across Spain-​Andalucia, Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol, Majorca, Menorca, Lanzarote.

We stayed here for a week it was fabulous!!! I could not say one negative thing about the holiday. I went with family and we all had an amazing time. The beach was near and shops and restaurants were in easy reach. The villa itself although it is near other villas it is very private. We had access to the villa at 1pm lunch time. Very clean and the maid came once in the week to clean which was good.

I would highly recommend. Villa was spacious and clean. All furniture both pool and otherwise were usable and comfy. There was enough plates, cutlery, glasses, pots and pans for all our needs. We found the rep, cleaning lady, pool team and handy man all to be helpful and courteous.

Day 3 Saturday. Another sunny day, another phone call to Villa Plus, getting to be a habit this, I reported the previous days issues, and explained my predicament regarding the possible impacts of the power cuts in the night. Later that day two men arrived, luckily one of them spoke a little English. Thy examined Looked at the cracked, split, and dilapidated looking main fuse board, they adjusted and re-set the timing of the entry light that is an integral part of the board, pronouncing that it was all good!!!!!!!!

Went to bed at usual time but, once again I was suddenly awakened in the middle of the night, gasping for breath, the electric had tripped again so had to once more I had to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I was not pleased.

Day 4 Sunday Another phone call to Villa Plus, and not willing to continue with this situation as it had ruined my holiday, I told them they have got to move me to another villa otherwise I was moving to a hotel and would send them the bill, they replied that they would try and sort it out and would get back to me. Two hours later I phoned again only to be told they were trying and would get back as soon as they knew something.

This was not acceptable, the day was disappearing fast, and I might have to go and find a hotel so in desperation I called the head office in St Albans, they said they would sort it, and within 20 minuets I had a call from a rep saying they could move me to a villa in Puerto del Carmen. Villa Calima 3 turned out to be a newly renovated 3 bed Villa high up the hill in old town Puerto del Carmen, very nice, although outside space is very tight, there is a sea view, just, binoculars might be a good option, it has a smaller pool but overall suited our needs perfectly.

No more problems, and enjoyed the remainder of our holiday. Would we rent from Villa Plus again? Yes, we have already booked for Cyprus in March. Villa Plus, overall, is good to deal with, their website is is clear and easy to navigate, and the booking process is the same, their reps and cleaning staff on Lanzarote are pleasant, and helpful, and their portfolio of villas they rent appears to be good.

Villa Pacifica is a very nice villa, it is in a very quiet area and is well proportioned it is just as described on the website, the pool is large and enclosed with a high wall and not overlooked, making it very private.

On the minus side. The beds and bed linen themselves in Villa Pacifica are very basic to say the least, thin mattresses, hard pillows, and the cheapest sheets available are not what many people are used to, it is hard to describe the feeling, and you can sleep, but is not good.

From my experience, outlined above, the maintenance practices are not up to standard, or to be expected, from a company of this standing, any problems not being able to be rectified before new tenants arrive should be pointed out to them, not left for them to find out for themselves causing unnecessary worry, anger, not to forget the bad feedback that could be generated.

The beach is clean, safe and well equipped with a variety of restaurants and bars, toilets, sun bed and umbrella hire and beach showers. Take the La Cala exit off the N, park at the back of the town by the shops and walk down to the beach area.

Nice sandy beaches, well equipped with many bars and restaurants close at hand. Fishing boats and nets on the beaches all add to the atmosphere of this very pleasant resort which unfortunately does get quite crowded during July and August.

Worth a visit though, but arrive early. Pedalo hire and some wind surfing. Once upon a time, La Carihuela belonged to Torremolinos and was its fishing area. Nowadays, located on its western outskirts, La Carihuela still retains its charm and quaintness with narrow streets, a lovely new pedestrian promenade lined with fabulous fish restaurants and an extensive stretch of sandy beach with beds and umbrellas for hire, pedaloes, windsurfing and bars with showers and toilets.

Mijas Costa is the long stretch of coast between Fuengirola and Marbella along which many urbanisations have sprung up on the inland side of the N and pedestrian bridges and under passes have been built to enable access to the many beaches.

The majority of the beaches are sandy but fairly narrow. The urbanisations of Riviera del Sol and Calahonda all have access to reasonable beaches where a beach bar or restaurant is never far away and they will all have toilets and sunbed and umbrella hire.

The Nueva Andalucia beach is situated a 15 minute stroll west of Puerto Banus and is sandy and well equipped.

Playa Puerto Banus is another very popular beach and without doubt the place to be seen!

If the beach was crowded you might be tempted to spend a day at its beach club and rub shoulders with the rich and famous. If not, then be prepared for a crowded beach. Lots of bars and restaurants close at hand and the usual facilities. These three popular beaches located together around the Elviria area at Kms , and off the N coast road, all have very good facilities with plenty of restaurants and beach bars and adequate parking.

They are all reached down small roads through urbanisations and there is no promenade linking the three. Needless to say they do get busy during high season, especially at weekends with the locals but with daily cleaning, the beaches are safe and the atmosphere is always good.

The beach is clean and safe with excellent facilities including toilets and showers, sunbed and umbrella hire, jet-ski and speed boat hire close by from the marina, pedalos and wind surfing. Try to park in the Avd. The Costa del Sol is known for many things: Sun, sea and sand are the usual three that holidaymakers are keen to mention, but one thing that they really shout about is the food.

The area is known for blending the old and the new when it comes to cuisine, and there is a lot to experience in the more authentic, local restaurants. If you really want to see the true Costa del Sol, there are few better ways to experience real Spanish culture than with a visit to a local produce market.

The area has an abundance of them, though not all of them are food produce specific, and many of the opening times and days vary throughout the seasons — it's always best to check when you arrive so you don't venture out on a wasted journey! For fresh fish and meat, fruit and veg, you will find that most towns will have a local Municipal Market, usually located near the heart of the old town - known locally as the Mercado Municipal.

These local markets are usually only open in the mornings, generally between 9am and 1pm, with stalls displaying a great selection of fresh foods. Each town will also have a specific day for their weekly "Rastro" markets which offer a combination of stalls, ranging from clothing to leather goods with a healthy dose of locally farmed produce too!

As with the majority of Spain, in Costa del Sol, be sure to expect a good punch of colour and flavour that has been perfected over hundreds of years. Whilst some dishes will have some modern touches, many of the region's favourites are old recipes that have been made time and time again — be sure to give something unexpected a try when you visit.

Well-seasoned, this dish is refreshing and tasty, and is best served with freshly chopped peppers and onion. Tapas — Costa del Sol is no exception to the Spanish love of tapas. These small plates are full of different ingredients and different tastes which can be mixed and matched with others to create an exciting dinner atmosphere, or can be great if you just fancy a small plate for a light meal. You can read more about the tapas dishes that the area is known for in our Guide to Costa del Sol.

As an area that fully embraces the Mediterranean location, you can't help but associate the taste of their food with sun and holidays. On a warm summer's evening, just serving up the right kind of food can even make dining in at home into a treat that feels distinctly Spanish, especially if you've got the right recipes to hand.

Clams are a large part of the Costa del Sol foodie culture, as is the traditional dessert dish of Churros con chocolate. This recipe is simple but delicious, relying on high-quality ingredients to achieve that authentic depth and flavour. Place them in a casserole dish or stew pot on a medium heat and stir in the onion, garlic and parsley. Cook for a minute or two, then sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper and turn the heat up. Once the clams have opened up and softened, the dish is ready to serve straight from the pot.

Sprinkle with parsley to serve. Firstly, mix together the flour and the baking powder in a large bowl. Then, mix through the olive oil and water to form a dough. Once the dough has reached the desired thick but flexible consistency, leave it to rest for around 30 minutes. After the dough has rested, heat the oil up in a sturdy frying pan and allow it to heat up — the oil should sizzle. Fill a piping bag with your doughy mixture, and slowly pipe in reasonable lengths into the frying pan.

Allow them to cook until golden, covering if necessary to ensure an even cook. For the chocolate dipping sauce, you should melt the two types on chocolate together, and stir to combine. To loosen the chocolate up, add a little of the milk and stir, continuing until you are happy that the churros can be dipped! Serve the churros warm with the chocolate dip on the side, and enjoy!

Spanish restaurants tend to have a goodselection of fish available as this plays animportant part in the Mediterranean diet. Argentinerestaurants naturally serve excellent beef,but generally pork, chicken and lamb arereadily available and either grilled or fried. Many main courses are served with justa vegetable garnish, since the Spanishwill often eat a vegetable dish as a firstcourse. The majority of restaurants servesuitable alternatives to meat andfish suchas omelettes, salads, filling soups likegazpacho, rice dishes and pasta.

For alight meal then tapas are a good idea,where small plates of tasters are servedwith a piece of bread. There is plentyof choice when it comes to these tastysmaller dishes such as Spanish omelette,prawns, meatballs, pork or even a Russiansalad. For dessert the choice is fairlylimited, with ice cream, cream caramel,fruit, rice pudding, and gateaux being theorder of the day.

Another sunny day, another phone call to Villa Plus, getting to be a habit this, I reported the previous days issues, and explained my predicament regarding the possible impacts of the power cuts in the night.

Later that day two men arrived, luckily one of them spoke a little English. Thy examined Looked at the cracked, split, and dilapidated looking main fuse board, they adjusted and re-set the timing of the entry light that is an integral part of the board, pronouncing that it was all good!!!!!!!!

Went to bed at usual time but, once again I was suddenly awakened in the middle of the night, gasping for breath, the electric had tripped again so had to once more I had to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I was not pleased.

Day 4 Sunday Another phone call to Villa Plus, and not willing to continue with this situation as it had ruined my holiday, I told them they have got to move me to another villa otherwise I was moving to a hotel and would send them the bill, they replied that they would try and sort it out and would get back to me.

Two hours later I phoned again only to be told they were trying and would get back as soon as they knew something. This was not acceptable, the day was disappearing fast, and I might have to go and find a hotel so in desperation I called the head office in St Albans, they said they would sort it, and within 20 minuets I had a call from a rep saying they could move me to a villa in Puerto del Carmen. Villa Calima 3 turned out to be a newly renovated 3 bed Villa high up the hill in old town Puerto del Carmen, very nice, although outside space is very tight, there is a sea view, just, binoculars might be a good option, it has a smaller pool but overall suited our needs perfectly.

No more problems, and enjoyed the remainder of our holiday. Would we rent from Villa Plus again? Yes, we have already booked for Cyprus in March. Villa Plus, overall, is good to deal with, their website is is clear and easy to navigate, and the booking process is the same, their reps and cleaning staff on Lanzarote are pleasant, and helpful, and their portfolio of villas they rent appears to be good.

Villa Pacifica is a very nice villa, it is in a very quiet area and is well proportioned it is just as described on the website, the pool is large and enclosed with a high wall and not overlooked, making it very private.

On the minus side. The beds and bed linen themselves in Villa Pacifica are very basic to say the least, thin mattresses, hard pillows, and the cheapest sheets available are not what many people are used to, it is hard to describe the feeling, and you can sleep, but is not good. From my experience, outlined above, the maintenance practices are not up to standard, or to be expected, from a company of this standing, any problems not being able to be rectified before new tenants arrive should be pointed out to them, not left for them to find out for themselves causing unnecessary worry, anger, not to forget the bad feedback that could be generated.

The Costa del Sol is known for many things: Sun, sea and sand are the usual three that holidaymakers are keen to mention, but one thing that they really shout about is the food. The area is known for blending the old and the new when it comes to cuisine, and there is a lot to experience in the more authentic, local restaurants.

If you really want to see the true Costa del Sol, there are few better ways to experience real Spanish culture than with a visit to a local produce market. The area has an abundance of them, though not all of them are food produce specific, and many of the opening times and days vary throughout the seasons — it's always best to check when you arrive so you don't venture out on a wasted journey!

For fresh fish and meat, fruit and veg, you will find that most towns will have a local Municipal Market, usually located near the heart of the old town - known locally as the Mercado Municipal. These local markets are usually only open in the mornings, generally between 9am and 1pm, with stalls displaying a great selection of fresh foods.

Each town will also have a specific day for their weekly "Rastro" markets which offer a combination of stalls, ranging from clothing to leather goods with a healthy dose of locally farmed produce too! As with the majority of Spain, in Costa del Sol, be sure to expect a good punch of colour and flavour that has been perfected over hundreds of years. Whilst some dishes will have some modern touches, many of the region's favourites are old recipes that have been made time and time again — be sure to give something unexpected a try when you visit.

Well-seasoned, this dish is refreshing and tasty, and is best served with freshly chopped peppers and onion. Tapas — Costa del Sol is no exception to the Spanish love of tapas. These small plates are full of different ingredients and different tastes which can be mixed and matched with others to create an exciting dinner atmosphere, or can be great if you just fancy a small plate for a light meal.

You can read more about the tapas dishes that the area is known for in our Guide to Costa del Sol. As an area that fully embraces the Mediterranean location, you can't help but associate the taste of their food with sun and holidays. So, if you want to be near bars, restaurants and shops they've got you covered. But if you're after something more peaceful in the countryside - they have plenty of choice for that too.

Plus, all of their villas have access to in-resort staff so there's always someone around should you need anything. Why not start your summer countdown?

Book now to guarantee you have the pick of their villas. Always Adding Extra. The photos on Villa Plus website show lovely furniture on the patio this appears to have gone missing. The gardener walked into the garden with no notice and started to use a leaf blower while we were sitting at the pool.

One of the toilet seats were broken on arrival and was still broken when we left. The Villa in general is run down and tired the photos on the website in no way reflect the true condition of the Villa. When I wrote to complain Villa Plus replied that I should have brought up my complaints during my stay if I had done this I would have spent my whole holiday on the phone or waiting for a rep to visit to point out these faults in my opinion these faults should have been sorted beforehand surely this is their job.

Had a wonderful holiday with Villa Plus. Villa was superb. Reps extremely helpful. Lovely area. Wouldn't book with anyone else Good flights with BA No delays Private transfer In a large people carrier No waiting and on time both ways. We stayed here for a week it was fabulous!!! I could not say one negative thing about the holiday. I went with family and we all had an amazing time. The beach was near and shops and restaurants were in easy reach.

The villa itself although it is near other villas it is very private. We had access to the villa at 1pm lunch time. Very clean and the maid came once in the week to clean which was good. I would highly recommend. Villa was spacious and clean. All furniture both pool and otherwise were usable and comfy. There was enough plates, cutlery, glasses, pots and pans for all our needs. We found the rep, cleaning lady, pool team and handy man all to be helpful and courteous.

We all had a great time. We picked up our hire car, and followed the excellent directions you supplied straight to the villa without problem. On arrival Late morning your representative was just leaving the property, she told us all about the villa including the fact that this particular villa received the BBC and ITV channels on the television, which we thought was a welcome bonus.

On first inspection we thought the villa was exceptionally good, and way above our expectations, and it appeared to have everything we could possibly need. I felt the temperature of the pool and thought it a little cool, and I also noticed that the level was about 2 inches below the skimmer, but did not think it significant and thought nothing of it at the time.

When we had unpacked, I connected my laptop to the Wi-Fi address as printed in the villas very comprehensive information book without any problems, I connected to the BBC i-player and listened to the mid-day BBC news whilst checking my emails, no problems!!!

Began to think that out toast had fallen jam side up for a change!!! After dinner we began to watch the English television, it began to get cold inside the villa, but thought No Problem, I will warm the place a little so switched the air conditioner to the warm setting and fired it up, big mistake that, the noise it made was so loud we had to chose between staying cold or to turn the volume up on the television to hear it.

About half an hour later the main electric switch tripped, leaving us in total darkness, unfortunately I had no idea where the fuse box was located, but luckily I had made a mental note of where the emergency torch was located so carefully found it and tried to switch it on, only to find that someone had put a replica torch there instead of a real one!!! I suppose some one thought it funny, but I certainly did not. My wife thought that she had seen the switchbox on the wall by the backdoor so I felt my way there, found it and switched it back on.

I suffer from acute sleep apnea, and as I had already set up my Continuous positive airway pressure CPAP machine to ensure my being able to breath during sleep, we retired to bed around pm. Day 2 Friday. At 9 am phoned the Villa Plus rep to report these and the various other problems encountered the previous day and that the pool appeared to have sprung a leak.

She was very apologetic and said leave the key in the lockbox and she would send someone to fix them a. Soon after that a lady arrived with a small portable heater. After breakfast we decided to go down to the market held in the port, when we got back there was a hosepipe in the pool, I felt the water and it was freezzzzing, obviously not good for swimming. During the afternoon the electric tripped again, all on its own, nothing was on, we were outside sunbathing. It became obvious that somebody had been into the villa whilst we were out and had changed or removed something.

Went to bed at usual time but I was suddenly awakened, disorientated, and gasping for breath in total pitch black darkness at 4am, I soon realised that the main electric had tripped again, so had once more to feel my way out into the kitchen to switch it back on, needless to say I did not get anymore sleep that night, worrying that it might trip again.

Day 3 Saturday. Another sunny day, another phone call to Villa Plus, getting to be a habit this, I reported the previous days issues, and explained my predicament regarding the possible impacts of the power cuts in the night. Later that day two men arrived, luckily one of them spoke a little English. Thy examined Looked at the cracked, split, and dilapidated looking main fuse board, they adjusted and re-set the timing of the entry light that is an integral part of the board, pronouncing that it was all good!!!!!!!!

Villa Calima 3 turned out to be a newly renovated 3 bed Villa high up the hill in old town Puerto del Carmen, very nice, although outside space is very tight, there is a sea view, just, binoculars might be a good option, it has a smaller pool but overall suited our needs perfectly.

No more problems, and enjoyed the remainder of our holiday. Would we rent from Villa Plus again? Yes, we have already booked for Cyprus in March. Villa Plus, overall, is good to deal with, their website is is clear and easy to navigate, and the booking process is the same, their reps and cleaning staff on Lanzarote are pleasant, and helpful, and their portfolio of villas they rent appears to be good.

Villa Pacifica is a very nice villa, it is in a very quiet area and is well proportioned it is just as described on the website, the pool is large and enclosed with a high wall and not overlooked, making it very private. On the minus side. The beds and bed linen themselves in Villa Pacifica are very basic to say the least, thin mattresses, hard pillows, and the cheapest sheets available are not what many people are used to, it is hard to describe the feeling, and you can sleep, but is not good.

From my experience, outlined above, the maintenance practices are not up to standard, or to be expected, from a company of this standing, any problems not being able to be rectified before new tenants arrive should be pointed out to them, not left for them to find out for themselves causing unnecessary worry, anger, not to forget the bad feedback that could be generated.

The Costa del Sol is known for many things: Sun, sea and sand are the usual three that holidaymakers are keen to mention, but one thing that they really shout about is the food.

The area is known for blending the old and the new when it comes to cuisine, and there is a lot to experience in the more authentic, local restaurants. If you really want to see the true Costa del Sol, there are few better ways to experience real Spanish culture than with a visit to a local produce market. The area has an abundance of them, though not all of them are food produce specific, and many of the opening times and days vary throughout the seasons — it's always best to check when you arrive so you don't venture out on a wasted journey!

For fresh fish and meat, fruit and veg, you will find that most towns will have a local Municipal Market, usually located near the heart of the old town - known locally as the Mercado Municipal. These local markets are usually only open in the mornings, generally between 9am and 1pm, with stalls displaying a great selection of fresh foods. Each town will also have a specific day for their weekly "Rastro" markets which offer a combination of stalls, ranging from clothing to leather goods with a healthy dose of locally farmed produce too!

As with the majority of Spain, in Costa del Sol, be sure to expect a good punch of colour and flavour that has been perfected over hundreds of years. Whilst some dishes will have some modern touches, many of the region's favourites are old recipes that have been made time and time again — be sure to give something unexpected a try when you visit. Well-seasoned, this dish is refreshing and tasty, and is best served with freshly chopped peppers and onion.

Tapas — Costa del Sol is no exception to the Spanish love of tapas. These small plates are full of different ingredients and different tastes which can be mixed and matched with others to create an exciting dinner atmosphere, or can be great if you just fancy a small plate for a light meal. You can read more about the tapas dishes that the area is known for in our Guide to Costa del Sol.

As an area that fully embraces the Mediterranean location, you can't help but associate the taste of their food with sun and holidays. On a warm summer's evening, just serving up the right kind of food can even make dining in at home into a treat that feels distinctly Spanish, especially if you've got the right recipes to hand.

Clams are a large part of the Costa del Sol foodie culture, as is the traditional dessert dish of Churros con chocolate. This recipe is simple but delicious, relying on high-quality ingredients to achieve that authentic depth and flavour. Place them in a casserole dish or stew pot on a medium heat and stir in the onion, garlic and parsley. Cook for a minute or two, then sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper and turn the heat up.

Once the clams have opened up and softened, the dish is ready to serve straight from the pot. Sprinkle with parsley to serve. Firstly, mix together the flour and the baking powder in a large bowl. Then, mix through the olive oil and water to form a dough. Once the dough has reached the desired thick but flexible consistency, leave it to rest for around 30 minutes.

After the dough has rested, heat the oil up in a sturdy frying pan and allow it to heat up — the oil should sizzle. Fill a piping bag with your doughy mixture, and slowly pipe in reasonable lengths into the frying pan. Allow them to cook until golden, covering if necessary to ensure an even cook. For the chocolate dipping sauce, you should melt the two types on chocolate together, and stir to combine. To loosen the chocolate up, add a little of the milk and stir, continuing until you are happy that the churros can be dipped!

Serve the churros warm with the chocolate dip on the side, and enjoy! French Riviera. Italy Puglia. Portugal Algarve. Our finest villas that offer a little something extra. New to Villa Plus.
