“Dream Property in dream location!!”
Reviewed May 17, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Sometimes it is very difficult to put into words how awesome a villa could be. This is one of those times. I rented El Cid and the 'sister' villa El Cano through DSV for a large family event. Through the week, 20 people where accommodated in each of the 10 excellently appointed and super luxurious rooms. There was never a moment when the villa felt cramped. This place is huge! Even when the 20 guests staying in El Cano came over for gatherings (accessed by a gate between the 2 villas) there was still loads of space for entertainment.
Every thing has been thought of here by management. If, in the unlikely event something is not catered for then the onsite management team are very happy and capable to assist.
The manager, Andreaa assisted by Rihas and Dalia were fantastic throughout our stay. Thank you.
The outside space and pools/Jacuzzis were amazing. Top tip, if staying in the lower season ensure the pools are heated before you arrive. You will not be disappointed.
The location is also fantastic, sitting in an elevated position overlooking the famous Los Flamingos Golf Club and Hotel Villa Padierna. The views are stunning. There are 2 local Supermarkets outside the security manned gated access and you are only a short drive (approx. 10 mins) from the lively resort of Puerto Banus.
Overall, I cannot rate El Cid high enough and are definitely looking forward to returning sometime soon. Check out the DSV website for further information and although the photos are superb the reality is even better.
Thank you DSV. Thank you Andrea and the team at El Cid. All the Best Graeme.
