Great stay for families with kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the villa. The house is HUGE! And so is the garden around. It doesn't show on the pictures how big it is. Kids could run along corridors and play hide and seek. Everything is well equipped, and works well, there's even Netflix on the TV and swimming toys ;)

Don't take any books nor board games as there a hundreds of those hidden in the closets :)

The pool is really very well heated (like 31C even) - just remember to cover it up for the night if you come in the winter as the nights can be chilly. We used some space heaters (also provided in the house) for children's rooms but there are plenty of duvets and blankets in the closets as well.

The house is on the "windy" side of the island, so there can be a significant temperature difference between Playa de las Americas or Los Christianos and the nearest beach to the house in El Medano where the wind can blow heavily in the winter (this is why there are plenty of wind and kite-surfers there). But the place is SO MUCH nicer than the tourist resorts, so don't even think twice if you like peace and want to live among locals and if you dislike crowds. If you're looking for warmer and not that crowded beaches they can be found in Palm Mar which is also quite near.

I also highly recommend restaurant La Famiglia in El Medano (the food was marvelous!) - but you will need a reservation!

Mr. Michael who greeted us was super charming and helpful and so was the staff who cared for the property and the horse that lives across the wall :)

Overall, I'd like to recommend this house (and Tenerife in general) for families or friends.

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a wonderful 10 days in this villa, our group consisted of myself, my partner and 2 teenage children.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and all the facilities provided especially the beautifully heated pool and games room for the children. The weather was excellent throughout our stay and very got at times.

We found the villa was very well equipped and our host Michael was on hand for anything we needed.

We would highly recommend this villa for all holiday types as the location, equipment and child friendly facilities are more than enough for everyone.

Perfect Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

Casa Margarita is a perfect holiday villa. It's well maintained, secure and having the games room/garage is perfect for getting the kids out of the sun for an hour or so in the afternoon (while keeping them entertained!) We had 5 young children in our party and the having the bunk room meant that they could all sleep in the same room. The villa is also a short drive from several large supermarkets, the beach and the airport (not that we found the need to venture out too often!)We found the property manager Michael very friendly and always at hand when needed (thanks again for reprinting my boarding passes Michael!) The couple next door who maintain the pool and gardens were also lovely and quickly made friends with the children letting them into their garden to hold the terrapins (a highlight for them all).

I think it is worth mentioning that although there are birds next door, I wouldn't call it a sanctuary - more a bird cage with around 10 small birds in! They were lovely and did not hamper our sleep or lessen our opinion of the villa(!). We had a fantastic holiday and will definitely be coming back

Great Family Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

We traveled as a family group with grandparents and 4 children from 9-14 years.

We had a lovely time. The heated pool and terrace were secluded and there were numerous inflatable toys available which the kids loved.

The house was well equipped and the games room was an added bonus.

We preferred to be a bit away from the main tourist hotspots but we were close enough for attractions to be easily accessible. There was plenty to do and good restaurants within easy driving distance.

The agent Michael was very helpful and responsive to any queries.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have taken our family to Tenerife having been to three of the other Canary Islands before. This is also the second time we have booked a villa in El Salto, the other being run by the same people (villa Farola). We had a great time in that villa and very happy with the management representative who lives next door to villa Farola.

The villa was beautifully decorated and very clean and tidy. We have 4 kids and there's loads of space for them in the bedrooms and living area, but to be honest, they just spent most of their time in the pool!

I'm very particular about having a heated pool as we tend to go to the Canaries in the winter, although this time was a little later than usual - in the spring. Having had a few bad experiences with purported 'heated' pools before, I was very pleased with the attention Michael gave to this detail last time in villa Farola and the same applied this time too in villa Margarita. The pool was warm, regardless of the couple of cooler days we had, it was used regularly.

With El Salto being a little higher up from the coast, the villa has a beautiful setting with wide views over the surrounding area. It is quiet and relaxed, although the neighbours do have caged birds which can be noisy in the morning!

The location is a perfect base for access to the coastal beaches from El Medano and along to Playa de Las Americas etc.

You wont be disappointed with the villa, pool, location, management and experience you'll have here.

Not as Expected

  • 3 of 5

The villa is located high up over a town and it was very very windy with dark clouds hanging over us for 8 of 10 days. There was mostly beautiful sunshine in low lying areas near the sea. The villa itself was lovely and everything we needed was there for us but there were a few things which weren't as advertised. There is only one shower in the villa located in the en suite bathroom, the main bathroom has a bath only with hand held shower but no curtain. The second double bedroom is accessed through the twin bedroom and while this double room does have a door there is no door to the twin room which is completely open to the hall. There was a smell of sewage from the main bathroom which was unpleasant but we didn't complain as we didn't want workmen disturbing us, we kept window open instead. Outside, the pool is lovely. The outside kitchen, which we thought from photos on website was poolside, was in fact a converted garage near the gate and didn't have a fridge as advertised. At about 3.30 every morning an out of sync neighbouring cock started crowing, this was shortly after the local dogs had stopped barking, and at day break the parrots, budgies and other species in the neighbours aviary (just outside our bedroom windows) started the dawn chorus. Because of the wind we had to leave the villa 8 of our 10 days and it would seem from what people were saying that this is a windy spot. A car is absolutely essential.

Owner's Response: Since the Villa was launched we have received NO negative feedback from 30 + clients. Regarding the location, El Salto is not high up as stated, it is only 10 Minutes from El Medano beach and 5 minutes from the town of San Isidro. We agree that the weather was not as normal, but this applied to the whole of the Island and clouds covered everything above 300 Metres. There are 2 showers, one in the master and the second in the family bathroom of which the bath is a large Jaccuzzi type, we do not understand this comment as the shower works perfectly. We also do not understand why the lack of a door affected their holiday, there were 3 other bedrooms to use that have doors. Regards smells we have had no other complaints about smells and I called at the Villa on 3 occasions and spoke to Aiofe (Daughter ) I asked about the smell and she stated there were no problems everything was ok. In their review they say they did not want workmen, therefore I was not able to check or confirm anything. Reference the outside Kitchen a) there is no indication that this that this is next to the pool but in fact is 3 Metres away, This area is a multipurpose room that serves as a play area ( Table tennis, darts,etc ) with a built in BBQ and dining facility, the fact that it is a converted garage is in our opinion irrelevant. Noise No clients have never complained about noise, I live 150 Metres from the Villa and have never heard a cockerel at 3.30 am, yes dogs bark occasionally, and there is an aviary nearby but it is not a big problem. This is an outstanding property and we have received over 30 clients who loved the Villa and the location, as you will see from other reviews. THIS REVIEW IS VERY BIASED AND WE DO NOT AGREE WITH THE COMMENTS THE WEATHER WAS UNUSUALLY BAD WHICH AFFECTS CLIENTS, NONE OF THE COMPLAINTS HAVE BEEN NOTED BY OTHER CLIENTS DURING THEIR STAY HERE, WE ENDEAVOUR TO ENSURE TOTAL CLIENT SATISFACTION, HOWEVER IN THIS INSTANCE THE CLIENT DID NOT DISCUSS ANY OF THESE COMPLAINTS WITH ME APART FROM THE SMELL WHICH I COULD NOT CONFIRM.
