Guests’ commentaries
It was a fabulous experience. The villa was better than on the pictures. The staff was really nice! All the 14 people that we were, from the oldest to the youngest have nothing to criticise, only all the existing superlatives about the experience. The staff is amazing, Pilar, the chef, is not a cooker but a real 'Chef'; Beatriz and Strosner couldn't have taken more car of us! And of course, what else could we except with Manolo at the helm! Manolo made our stay so unbelievably comfortable. A very nice person! We saw all of our needs, we felt very comfortable and welcomed! The staff received our warmest thanks, the attention that they paid for our comfort made our stay so much better that we expected. The villa only was incredible. The photos on the website, although really good, do not represent the reality. We have already loved the villa from the photos, but it was much better in reality. We loved each bedroom! The layout was perfect for all of us. When we wanted quiet, we could find a comfortable and pleasant place to relax.

The staff made us feel like home. They have been marvellous, they gave us incredible meals. We all like Spanish food, without the staff, the holidays would not have been that marvellous.
Sotogrande is awesome because it gives many opportunities to play: tennis, golf, etc.
