Review of Villa Atlantico Easter 2013
My wife and I had been to the Golf de Sur/Los Abrigos region 3 times before. We like the area because it is quiet, no discernible noisy nightlife and very pleasant coastal and inland walks. It was on one of these walks that we picked out Villa Atlantico as the villa we would most like to stay in next and when we discovered it was on the rental market we immediately booked.
The villa is the end one of a row of similar villas lining the 4th Fairway of the Amarrillo golf club. It has an almost 180 degree open view of the sea with the pleasing addition of the lush fairway and manicured green of the golf course. The marina can be seen to the east and on the weekend we were there, a regatta of large and small yachts added to the picture.
The villa is very comfortable and well equipped. Excellent showers, plenty of hot water and reliable Wifi which is important these days. I did test the pool out and it was at a perfect temperature heated by a very modern heat exchange unit.
The booking arrangements were very professional and the whole process went without a hitch - one of the easiest self-booked Internet holidays I've done. As we had no car we walked to the supermarkets. There are four local small supermarkets that we incorporated into our daily walks ranging from a 10 to 45 minutes from the villa. We did one visit to the Mercadonna in Chafiras (50 minutes) for a big shop and took a taxi back - 5 euros from the taxi rank in front of the garage to the left of the store as you come out.
There was a box to tick on this review to indicate who I thought the villa would be suitable for. None of the categories was an obvious choice. There are no sandy beaches or active nightlife within walking distance to keep the kiddies or the teenagers happy. On the other hand, if you are keen golfers and can afford the extra cost of a car and golf fees, Villa Atlantico would be ideal.
My wife and I fall into the category of those past retirement age, still capable of walking over moderately hilly or roughish territory, fell in love with sea-views 20 years ago, like peace and quiet, and are content to pass the time playing scrabble, reading a good book or just sitting staring at a panoramic sea view with a bottle of good Rioja to hand. If you are in that category you will enjoy Villa Atlantico.

Superb views, quiet location
We had great time staying in Villa Atlantico. Everything was as described. We particularly enjoyed uninterrupted panoramic views over the ocean and kids loved the heated pool.
The only small inconvenience was tiny ants in the kitchen.
We would consider to book this villa again if going to Tenerife.

Stayed for a week in february half term. villa was excellent-exactly as described. views from terrace of the sea and part of golf course were lovely.Heated pool not overlooked .Caretaker ,David, very helpful and gave good advice. Position convenient for all areas. Go early[before 10-00am] for mount Teide as cable car queues build up.Siam water park great fun-amazing rides. Aqualand less busy and more straightforward rides but good fun.
Had great time-would definitely recommend.

Nice villa !
The villa is really a comfortable one, offering a great expansive view on the ocean. It's very well kept and contains all amenities and everything needed for a pleasant stay. The heated pool was of great value since the ocean temperature during our stay was bit too low for swimming.
We especially appreciated the villa location which was at the end of a residential area street with fantastic sea view.
If my choice ever falls on Tenerife again, I will undoubtedly try get in the same villa Atlantic.

What a lovely villa spacious for 4 adults and a 17 year old. Wonderful views from the balcony and a great pool warm enough even for April.
Recommend to anybody but suggest a car as a bit out of the way for the older person for restaurants and bars. Good base for visiting other towns.

Views to die for
We spent a great week at Villa Atlantico at the end of November with lovely weather and temperatures averaging about 25c in the daytime. The Villa was well presented and the outside area had a lovely pool and views to die for looking directly onto the golf course and the sea. We particularly enjoyed our walks along the coastal path towards the harbour. We will certainly be considering renting this villa again in the future. I would recommend having a car as there are limited facilities within walking distance.

Villa Atlantico September 2011
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this villa. Being keen golfers it was a great base for us to play a few courses on the island and enjoy watching fellow golfers playing down to the 4th green on Amarilla golf.
The villa was very well presented and had a few extras that are not normally left in villas, like washing up liquid, salt, pepper etc, these little things make a difference.
The only thing I would recommend to the owners was that they installed Air Conditioning in the bedrooms as the fans provided were not sufficient to cool these areas.
We had a problem with the burglar alarm which was sorted the next day. Other than that we had a great holiday.
If Air conditioned we would return to this villa and recommend it to our friends.

We are a couple from Denmark and stayed in Villa Atlantico in October 2011. We had a fantastic holiday and we really enjoyed the stunning view, the pool and the terrace. All went well and we had everything we could wish for in the villa. Everything was very clean and the area is very quiet.
We recommend to rent a car (which is really cheap in Tenerife). There is a shop in walking distance.
Thanks for a beautiful holiday.

Villa Atlantico Tenerife
We have just returned from a 2 week vacation at this villa. We were a party of 6. The villa is in a fantastic location. With the views of the ocean and gold course.. The villa had everything we needed for our stay. We truly enjoyed our stay and would not hestitate to go back again. Rosemary and David were great people to deal with from the time we booked the villa right through our stay, they were on hand if we needed anything. Reading the description of the villa on the internet I o not feel it does it justice I eel it is far better than you can expect.The Green family (Chelmsford, England)

As a family with 2 teenagers we found the villa with its pool,barbecue, walks to the beach and fantastic climate great for a relaxing 2 week holiday. The villa was well appointed, views stunning and access to local amenities great. We would happily return for a relaxing break.Val (UK, UK)
