Carol Alexander, 24-Jun-2011

El Gecko Villa was fantastic. Beautiful surroundings and a wonderful Villa. Easily fitted 7 of us with plenty of room. Location was great, close enough to get to amenities but far enough away to have a quiet and peaceful holiday. The pool was brilliant ! The table tennis and pool table were used daily and a great addition to the Villa. Would highly recommend Villa Plus and El Gecko villa in particular to anyone.
