“Wonderful winter break! 'Home from home'. Highly recommended!”

Booked the Casa Hermosa very last minute as party of four needed some sunshine in the winter months. Location is quite inland from Alicante and with car hire we were able to locate the Banos easily (50 mins). Villa itself is tucked away down a private road. Upon arrival we were met by Sheila who showed us around told us what and where everything was in the area. The Villa itself had everything you could wish for, home from home. Temperature by day was high enough to sunbathe, but dropped when the sun disappeared. Really enjoyed sitting on the Veranda’s (which are sun traps) and reading.

Two big shopping complexes within 20 minutes’ drive delivered some retail therapy.

All in all a tranquil rejuvenating break that definitely recharged our batteries.

Thanks Emma, delighted that you & your family had a great holiday at the Villa, and even more so that you have booked again this year. Really happy you used the local natural treatment spa available in the village. Sheila did say what a lovely family we had in the Villa at the time. Best Regards Tina & Paul

Many thanks Martin, for your kind words for your holiday last year at villa casa hermosa, we would love you to stay again this year. Sheila our property manager did mail me to say what a lovely family arrived mid September. September 2014 is free so far. (wifi which you advised would be beneficial will be added this Spring) Thanks Again.

“Not at all what we expected, thoroughly upsetting experience!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Before I begin I should explain that the description has been modified since we stayed there.

This was supposed to be a romantic anniversary get away for two weeks.

In the original description it mentioned two bedrooms but failed to mention that they were interconnecting.

There was no DOUBLE bed. Both bedrooms had twin singles. The quilt was for a standard double and did not stretch across us due to the bed width now being 6 feet.

The photos showed a 3 arched 'L' shaped building which we assumed was all part of the rental. Now the ad states you only get the right hand part but this was not the case when we booked.

I had the foresight to video the original description and after complaining from Spain to Trip Advisor about the description they contacted the owners who changed all the wording.

The villa IS overlooked into the patio, pool and villa by 2 roof terraces next door but one.

The views are of a huge electric pilon situated at the boundary wall which has the cables completely running across the garden and house.

The furniture in places is hand painted and in the kitchen the use of Fablon is extensive.

The Sky box has no card in it so most channels are unavailable.

The part of the villa you actually get is very small and dark and cramped.

The whole experience was so awful we left the villa after 5 days. We looked out through the windows bars at the high perimeter wall and felt imprisoned.

The washer and dryer did not work as the electric for them comes from the owners part of the villa (the 3 arched bit) and the electric was off.

The 'secure parking' could not be accessed as no key was given to us to unlock the huge metal door. So the car stayed outside.

The area is very barren and nothing we saw gave us the impression of peacefulness or serenity with a huge campsite nearby.

The hammock in the garden could not be used as the material had torn loose and was flapping in our faces when sat in.

The kitchen was very under-equipped without a single wooden spoon or spatula. We cooked chicken filets and had to use a potato masher to turn them.

We washed everything before use as the plates were greasy. The cheese grater had residue of previous use on it and the plastic was cracked.

We never saw the beautiful views because there are not any.

All in all this is not a luxury villa and will never be!

Please note you will not be renting the bit with the 3 arches. The photos do feature that part of the villa but that bit you share with the owners!

Thank you Tina & Paul for making our anniversary so miserable.

The fact that we received an email just prior your arrival that you would be only staying for 5 days and that guest numbers had changed, really shows this review for what it is, both inaccurate & false. Our other guests experience and reviews also confirms this.
