We booked this villa for two week break although there was only three adults in our party we were allocated a three bed villa. The reception staff were friendly and informative and took us by minibus to our villa as you have to book in at reception which is quite a distance from the villas.

The villa itself was clean and the maid service was excellent with several towel changes during our stay. Cala Santandria area is relatively quiet and we stayed here in July. Be prepared for a good walk to the nearest restaurants so it is not ideal for elderly or mobility challenged visitors.

All in all we would recommend these villas for anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in a quiet location.

Our villa when we arrived was filthy dirty, and the smell of mould was over powering. we had no air conditioning so the baby had heat rash and the place was infested with ants, as to which the reception told us to buy ant spray.

The cot they supplied did not fit in the bedroom. The villa was supposed to be a four star but it certainly was not.

The garden and pool was lovely but the bbq was filthy and also infested with ants. We asked to be moved as the ants were a health hazard and were crawling over the babies bottles and were also in my sons bed they told us another villa would be available in one week.

We then contacted my travel direct and they moved us to another villa but it was far from anywhere and didn't have a microwave or sky tv that we paid for and the garden pool was full of bugs due to the high bushes that surrounded it.

We have just returned from our holiday and had a great time. After hearing of the other family's problem with the ants we were very aware of this and thankfully we did not encounter any problems. The villa with the Ants was worked on for three days, after the family left, by pestiside specialists. When we arrived at our villa the previous occupants must have just left and the villa hadnt been cleaned. However, the cleaners arrived within an hour and changed the linen/towels etc. and gave the property a general clean.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and having a pool to ourselves. The kids played there most of the time and when they were tired they watched the kids channels on Sky TV. The resort was quite quiet however we preferred this and there was no noise at night. There were a few good restaurants at the beach, especially Sa Nacra and Sa Quenta.

Sa Nacra was a lovely restaurant built on the rocks above the sea. Most days we walked into the nearby town of Cala Blanca for lunch or dinner. The main street of this town doesnt offer much however the beach is lovely with good restaurants.

One restaurant/bar in particular had water flumes and trampalines which the kids played on whilst we relaxed and took in the lovely sea views. We have already re-booked to go back in July 2007 and would highly recommend these villas.

Absolutely loved this villa. Clean private air conditioned (although the one in the upstairs bedroom was a bit wonky). Towels changed and beds made up with clean linen during the week. No complaints about cleanliness the villa was immaculate on arrival.

Fantastic clean pool. Plenty of ants as the week went on but we coped with that. TV with BBc2 ITV and CBBC which the kids enjoyed after a busy day.

We stayed in the Villas during the May half term after getting a last minute deal. When we arrived the villa had not been cleaned and I had to phone to get the cleaners to sort the place out which they did quite quickly. The place suffered badly with ants and the rep never managed to get anyone to sort the problem whilst we were there. I ended up buying sprays etc to deal with the problem, however they did get all over the place, in bedroms, the kitchen units and on the living room floor. I have stayed in various other resorts and come across similar problems so you would think that the staff could handle it.

The people in the villa next door suffered even worse as one of their rooms was infested with ants.

The villa we stayed in was fairly new and in a good situation which was fairly quiet. We mostly ate out at the restaurants in Cala Blanca which was close enough to walk to.

We stayed in villa no.10, and were very sorry when the week came to an end. Between the two of us we had a 3 bedroomed villa and pool.

The villas are relatively new, I would say no more than 18 months old. The pool was kidney bean shaped, and ideal but cold for us, but if there were young children with you could be very dangerous, as it was very deep at one end. It was cleaned though a couple of times while we were there.

There was a nice covered patio area with 6 chairs and table enabling you to eat al fresco, also a BBQ, which I did't fancy the look of, a bit unwashed and sooty. There were 6 sun loungers, and although the weather wasn't roasting ie 75ish we still got a few sunbathing sessions, as the area is sheltered.

The kitchen was well equipped for the 2 of us plenty of crockery and cutlery, but no oven, so could not cook anything to elaborate, but we managed to rustle up pasta, jacket tatties and other stuff on toast.

Electrical stuff provided were washing machine, microwave, kettle and toaster.

In the living area there was 2 sideboards, table and six chairs, settee and chairs, and a coffee table. There was a TV, but it was quite useless as it only picked up CNN and eurosports in English.

There were 3 bedrooms all had 2 single beds, basic but they seemed comfortable, all bedrooms had wardrobe space, but very few hangers for clothes.

Now for the bad bit, only 2 of the bedrooms were habitable, as the upstairs bathroom, was leaking into the downstairs bathroom. Again not a problem for us, as there was only the 2 of us and we could avoid the affected area.

The downstairs bathroom really smelt bad and on entry you could see why, extensive long term water damage to the ceiling, beams and walls. You think Airtours would sort this out because the resulting damage to the villa could cause structural problems to a new villa ie fungus well and truly set into beams and water damage setting into bedroom at side of bathroom.

The area the villas were in was quiet the only night we heard any bar noise was Saturday night and that was finished by 12. There was a Spar shop close by, a bus stop across from that, and the beach was just around the corner from that.

Around the beach there were a couple of restaurants and cafes. The beach was small, although adequate for the demand in that area for the time of year, probably very crowded in summer. The sea was very nice though warm with shoals of little fish swimming about.

I would not recommend this area for party goers, but good for relaxing couples or family holidays.

Were we disappointed with what we got? No for us it was ideal for the price we paid, but in high season and with full occupancy these villas are very expensive. I would not have put any of my family in the bedroom with water damage purely because of the health risk as it stank and you could see the mould spores on the walls.

Cleaners came into the villas every other day, to change towels, sheets etc. You could see the villas were owned by a company and not private as the cleaning was adequate, but not extensive, corners and grouting grimy, cleaned by rote and not with love, such a shame for a new villa.
