A little jewel in a beautiful resort!!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a wonderful week in Ray's apartment. Feel very lucky to have found the perfect accommodation in a perfect resort. Ray seems a very genuine guy and responded to all my emails promptly with plenty of info about the booking.

The setting of the apartments is very secure and quiet each having its own area and not really overlooked. The jacuzzi just off our balcony gave it a special touch.

The apartment is very well appointed with everything u could need and even satellite tv. The use of beach chairs and umbrella also a nice touch. There's a well stocked folder with plenty of info plus board games and good selection of books.

Villaricos has 3 beaches and 2 marinas plus lots of little bars and some nice restaurants. We liked Goah on the main road and El Faro which is opposite Harbour Lights. We also spent a few nice evenings with Dave in the English Bar La Plaza which doesn't look much from outside but menu and drinks very good and good value.

We liked the beach up by the the Fort best for sand and safe swimming.

We also travelled up into Murcia and found some nice beaches beyond San Juan. Our favourite was La Carolinas.

We will definitely be returning.

Wonderful apartment in a wonderful setting

  • 4 of 5

This is my second visit to Harbour Lights . At Harbour Lights, there are 4 courtyards, this time we stayed in the best courtyard, the apartment over looked beautiful gardens. We will definitately stay again. On arrival, we were shown to the apartment, it had been cleaned to an inch of its life! Villaricos, is a lovely, very relaxing village, with plenty of tapas restaurants - we didn't have a bad meal in the 2 weeks we stayed.

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in a number of places in the village this is definitely one of the nicer, set in the Harbour Lights complex, which is right opposite the harbour. It's an ideal location for exploring the area. It's very relaxing and has a pool area for the warmer months. The apartment itself has everything you would need and a really nice touch was the Sky TV.

lovely, clean apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was a little haven. It is very well equipped and homely. The terrace is a lovely and very peaceful place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. I loved the amazing views of the stunning area and the sea. Villaricos has lots of charm with lots of lovely restaurants, especially the one on the first marina in front of the water. Would definitely stay again.

Fabulous Place and Loved the Waterfront

  • 5 of 5

We booked at short notice and the response and feedback was so fast, put us right at ease. Very lucky to have found this place, especially on short notice and get all that support. They couldn’t have done more for us.

Complex is right on the water with beach just seconds away. Restaurants and bars right down the road but so quiet in apartment complex that we had complete piece and quiet, was great.

Apartment had everything we needed and the ceiling fans were great as not a fan of using the air-con at night. Very private spot and great shade in the balcony so could sit outside all day when too hot to be outside.

Thanks for great holiday and look forward to coming back.

Loved it. Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the apartment with my girlfriend and young son and we had a great holiday. The apartment was perfect, very clean and overlooked lovely gardens and water features so very relaxing all day. The complex was great, nice swimming pool and Jacuzzi to relax in.

The bars and restaurants were amazing value for money and great choice each night. Enjoyed the markets on Sunday and bought plenty of presents for the family back home.

Really enjoyed fishing on the marina right in front of the complex.

Was great to get all the apartment and local info before arriving and for all the help Ray gave us in helping with flights and rental car. He's a very nice an trustworthy individual.

I would recommend staying at this apartment to anyone who wants to have the perfect mix of relaxation and nighlife.

Location

From the Owner

We first visited Villaricos in 2012 and had an amazing time with the waterfront, restaurants and pace of life. The beaches are amazing and the coastline is stunning for cycling, driving or just a peaceful walk. Its a very safe also which was important to us as we have a young daughter who loves to run around. I travel a lot through work so I love to escape to the peace and beauty of Villaricos. I usually spend my morning either fishing at the beach or driving the stunning coastline and stopping for breakfast at one of the local towns. The town has plenty to offer with great inexpensive restaurants and great bars where plenty of locals and expats gather and are very welcoming.
