Simply 'The Best'
By Louise Chapman on 22-Aug-2019
Wow, what can I say...
We have been visiting Fuerteventura for over 20 years now as we have family that live and work there.
We always stay in a privately rented villa. We have now stayed at Villa Los Morales 5 times and can honestly say that this is the best villa on the island.
It is so peaceful with no noisy neighbours overlooking, with wonderful views of El Cotillo and the sea.
The heated pool is just perfect. It is not solar heated like so many others,it is mains heated so it stays warm all year round. It has the bonus of an outside toilet so you can visit the loo easily when outside in the pool or sunbathing, or just sitting on the terrace.
The villa itself is very large and spacious with 2 x equal sized twin bedrooms on the ground floor and a large master bedroom with ensuite upstairs. It keeps lovely and cool inside the villa when the days get really hot and all bedrooms have electric fans with the addition of ceiling fans in the twin bedrooms.
There is excellent wifi connection in the living / dining area and the TV is a smart TV so you can watch almost anything via the internet / netflix and it also has cable TV which shows all of the 5 main UK channels (1,2,3,4,5) plus many more.
The kitchen is so very well equipped with everything you need, lots of crockery / glasses / pots / pans etc... so it is like home from home.
There is a BBQ that is also a perfect size.
The bathroom downstairs is huge! with bath and separate large shower. The ensuite upstairs is also of a good size with a lovely powerful shower.
Barney and Paul will pop in regularly to clean the pool during your stay and be on hand to answer any queries / offer advice and simply be as helpful as possible to any of your needs. If you stay longer than a week the villa is also cleaned thoroughly halfway through your stay with a change of towels and bedding.
We also had the addition of beach towels for around the pool left for us on our most recent stay which was fantastic.
I also love that the price of the villa is the same all year round and you are not penalised for travelling in the school holiday periods.
If you are reading this review and are still undecided - please, just book the villa or speak to John, the owner. - you really will not be disappointed and will never want to stay anywhere else.
Thank you, once again to John and Sandy for letting us stay in your wonderful villa - We will be back (even if it is minus the children next time!)
Villa los morales
By Angie And Steve on 14-Jul-2019
Wow...is the first reaction. There is no way that the pictures on simply owners website show how huge this villa is. Its totally amazing, huge patio sunbathing area, fantastic pool, bbq etc.. everything is thought of in this villa from the bluetooth sound system to English full channel tv to the brilliant wifi andbivwill say brilliant as I did not need to switch to my data once!!!. Amazing kitchen with everything you require, every sort of glass to drink out of you needed, even shot glasses lol. We had such an amazing time that we have booked for 3 weeks next year and I doubt that will be enough!!! The cotillo town walking distance in 10 mins but we could have walked faster.... the lagoons wow onnyiur doorstep, could have walked to these too...but we were lazy...hipperdino end of road so so brilliant , beautiful lajares amazing restaurants 5 mins by car corralejo 15 mins by car. This villa in prime location sun trap all day but great shaded areas if you cant take the heat!!!! We have stayed in lots of villas but this us by far the best and our new yearly vacation. I cannot recommend this villa enough and barney and Paul who maintain it are fantastic and so helpful
John the owner always quickly responds and is the most helpful villa owner we have ever met. This villa is provided by the owners with amazing thought for the holidayer with every little extra included. Cant wait to be back, counting the weeks. Thank you for sharing your holiday home with us
Wonderful detached villa with pool and garden - highly recommended.
By Martin And Diana on 09-Mar-2019
We stayed here as a family of three adults in March for some winter sunshine. The owner's directions and instructions in advance were detailed and very helpful. The villa is very private, on the edge of a small village, with a beautiful garden and open aspect, and safe parking in the front drive. It is a short distance from El Cotillo (walkable, cyclable, or a couple of minutes in the car!) where there are supermarkets and restaurants. We cooked in most of the time - the kitchen is very well equipped, and there are dining tables inside and out. The bedrooms were comfortable, the showers excellent, and the indoor and outdoor seating areas perfect. We used the pool a couple of times - it is kept well maintained by the local handyman who was on hand for any problems. There is shade and sunshine, and the villa is designed to catch the sun at varying times of the day. There was plenty to do on the island, which we explored much of by car and walking, and excellent surf beaches at El Cotillo.
Heaven on Earth
By Gilly P on 17-Mar-2016
First impressions are so important aren't they and we were overwhelmed with the spotlessly clean,friendly ambience of this lovely house.
The pool area and gardens were a joy ,so colourful and tasteful.
As others have said John the owner updated us regularly before our holiday,provided us with maps ,helpful hints and sent us Paul,his friendly agent to settle us in and answer any questions.He was delightful.
We almost hope no one reads this review as we would love to come back next year and I think everyone who stays here always comes back.
We have visited El Cotillo for over 25 years and this has been our loveliest holiday home.
It is obviously much loved and we thank you John and Sandy for letting us share it.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words. It is comments like yours that make all the effort that goes on behind the scenes worthwhile. The whole team really do care that all our guests have a great holiday and do everything they can to ensure that is the case. I will pass on your review to Paul who does work exceptionally hard to make sure things run smoothly. Thanks again. Best wishes. John

A top quality villa
By Brian D on 01-Oct-2015
This villa is truly deserving of its 5-star rating given by previous reviewers. It is a very well equipped and maintained villa with a peaceful and not overlooked setting.
The information given prior to arrival by John, the owner, is absolutely superb. The local caretaker, Paul, is a mine of local information, ever helpful and friendly.
I would strongly recommend this villa to anyone wanting a holiday in the El Cotillo area.
Owner's Response: Thank you Guys. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I will pass on your comments to Paul. Best wishes. John
By Debra D on 24-Sep-2015
Oh what to say about this truly amazing feel like home villa, we were lucky enough to spend 18 fab days here and did not want to leave,so well equipped you will want for nothing ,the owners have thought of everything for their guests from the well equipped kitchen to the fresh linen,the pool was to die for and the sunsets are stunning from all areas of the villa,I must mention the gardens as it was a joy to sit and watch the birds come and go, if you get a chance to go here don't hesitate you will not be dissapointed,
Book early though as not surprisingly it will fill up...we are changing our dates just to go here next year...FANTASTIC...ENJOY
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words - it is much appreciated! Best wishes. John
By Angela W on 20-Sep-2015
From start to finish this was an absolutely fantastic experience in a brilliant villa, which is excellently managed and in a superb location. Once we had booked we regularly received updates from the owner, John, including detailed information about the villa, how to find it and things to do. Once we arrived we discovered a villa which is so well equipped that you want for nothing. The pool is to die for and the view from the rear of the property across to the village of El Cotillo and its beautiful beaches is outstanding. We only used the master bedroom (ensuite) but all three bedrooms are beautifully furnished and well equipped with storage etc. The kitchen is extensive and equipped for all eventualities. The lounge and dining room are huge and have lots of extras eg Bluetooth speakers etc.
Outside, as well as the pool, there is a shower area and an outside toilet to complement the stunning gardens.
The property is maintained by a local agent, Paul, who does an excellent job and is full of local knowledge and advice.
Overall this is an excellent property which we would recommend to anyone, so much so that we are already planning to go back next year!
Owner's Response: Hi Ian & Angela. Thank you very much for your kind words - its very pleasing to know that guests can see and appreciate the efforts that goes in all round to ensure holidays in the villa go as smoothly as possible. I will pass on your comments to Paul as well. Thanks again.
An amazing place to stay
By Joanne H on 09-Aug-2015
Joanne H - An amazing place to stay
• 5 of 5
Villa Los Morales is by far the best place we've stayed. It had everything we could have wanted and more; the private pool is fantastic (the pool toilet a definite bonus with small children!) and the inside of the villa is perfectly kept and beautiful. Lovely sea views and sunsets from the upper terraces and we loved watching the neighbouring goats! An easy 20-minute walk took us into the lovely fishing village of El Cotillo, where we found a few great bars and restaurants. We hired a car and drove around the island as we always do in Fuerteventura, but we could have just spent the whole week in the villa and pool; our children didn't want to go anywhere! John provided invaluable advice before we arrived and couldn't have been more helpful; Paul who came to clean the pool was really friendly and a mine of useful local information. Thank you John and Sandy for letting us stay in your lovely villa - we will definitely be back.
Owner's Response: Thank you Joanne. Really pleased you enjoyed your stay. I will pass your comments on to Paul and team who do work very hard to make everyone's holiday run as smoothly as possible.
As good as it gets
By Maurice From Cork on 18-Apr-2015
We have been lucky to stay in Los Morales on a number of occasions and we can honestly say it is a wonderful villa, superbly fitted out and maintained to a very high standard. The location is quiet and peaceful though very convenient to Lahares and El Cotillo and its beautiful beaches. For those who like to self cater the kitchen is fully equipped with a great new barbeque feature this year. The outdoor areas also tick all the boxes with a south facing poolside area for all day sunshine and some lovely shaded areas if you wish to take a break from the sun. The pool is a terrific feature and the garden areas are beautifully maintained. John and Sandy are a pleasure to deal with and Paul and Lesley are very helpful with anything that may need attention while you are there. If that's not enough then one simply has to look at the night sky and the amazing constellation that's on view most nights to know that this is a truly great place to be on holiday.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kinds words Maurice. Its really good to know guests enjoy the villa as much as we do!
Lovely Peaceful villa
By Nina M on 08-Nov-2014
If you are looking for a peaceful, private villa that is well equipped then look no further. The photos don't really do it justice, it is much larger than I thought in lovely grounds.The outside shower was ideal when returning from a day at the gorgeous lagoon beech in El Cortillo and the pool is a good size and the perfect temperature. The area has a very chilled vibe with a good selection of places to eat. As other guests have said both Paul who comes to clean the pool and John are very helpful and provided us with lots of information, we hope to be able to return again in the future.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Nina. Glad you had a good time and look forward to seeing you back someday. Best wishes. John & Sandy
Wonderful peaceful villa
By Anonymous From Devon on 07-Aug-2014
Brilliant villa - it's as good as the photos. Very well equipped with everything - even a pizza cutter! Although it is situated on the outskirts of El Roque (a small village) and the road to El Cotillo runs nearby, the villa was incredibly quiet - well except for the Fiesta that was on Friday - Monday nights, but that was great fun to see. Pool always warm and the "outside area" is totally sheltered. The extra garden with the boules is great. Paul (who cleans the pool twice a week) is a great source of local knowledge for anything, and on hand for any emergencies. Beaches at El Cotillo were great, 5 mins drive max and really quiet even though it was UK school holidays. Beach at Corralejo good if you head into the dunes - beyond the two rather large hotels!! Excellent restaurants in both El Cotillo and Lajares (both 5 mins max) and supermarket in El Cotillo (2 mins drive or 10/15 mins walk). Excellent communication with the owners, John and Sandy, and brilliant "pack" of information sent prior to departure with everything you need to know, including a detailed map directing you from the airport to the villa with fuel stations, speed cameras etc marked on it! Thank you - great service, great villa.
Owner's Response: Thanks Penny, so glad you had a good time in Los Morales.
A phantastic holiday place
By Ute From Germany on 05-May-2014
Thanks to Los Morales we have had wonderful and relaxing holidays at Fuerteventura in which we enjoyed every single moment.
The villa is very nice, spacious and well equipped so we did not miss anything. The view from the beautiful garden and terrace is phantastic. Our children especially loved the pool.
The location is great: nice beaches and good restaurants nearby, and a day-trip to Lanzarote is also a great experience.
Finally we did not want to go back home - so we will definitely come back, again.
By Di From UK on 22-Feb-2014
Three of us spent a 'girlie' week in the villa in May and had a fantastic time. The villa is large, well maintained and of an exceptionally high standard. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped with everything you would ever need.
The pool area is a delight, extremely private and set in beautifully maintained gardens with views towards the sea in the distance. There is also a covered terrace which provides a perfect area for eating outside or just a shady area to sit and read. The nearest village and beach facilities are a five minute drive from the villa or for the more energetic a 15 to 20 minute walk.
If you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday with excellent facilities and amenities nearby, this is a perfect place to stay.
Owner's Response: Thanks Di - really pleased you had a good time and enjoyed the villa. Best wishes. John & Sandy
17 different reasons to stay here
By Garypine on 03-Feb-2014
As we've stayed at Los Morales a number of different times, we're over qualified to comment on this EXCELLENT villa.
Not withstanding the fact that John and Sandy are excellent hosts, have gone to every effort to make our numerous stays as enjoyable as they could AND are always available to answer questions or address concerns, a list of 17 different things that will help you choose this villa over all others on the Island:
1. The pool is cleaned several times a week by the nicest guy in the world, Paul.
2. The shower poolside is both powerful and cooling; for both sand removal and to temper the obvious sun tanning.
3. MANY comfortable and full adjustable pool side reclining beds.
4. My favourite BBQ - I'm still planning to have one of these made, old school 'wind up with grill on a chain' type - works like a champ.
5. Poolside, the shape / direction of the villa affords superb wind shelter should you find it too much on the beach.
6. Plastic cups for use by the pool - as well as glass obviously. John and Sandy have made every effort to think of how best to serve their resident families - both young and old.
7. Excellent sun sets most days, looking out from the pool side.
8. An outside toilet, fully equipped, to save you going back into the villa and therefore dripping everywhere, should you get caught short.
9. A private balcony for those using the upstairs en-suite room.
10. Wireless broadband.
11. Lots of sockets for charging / using devices and appliances.
12. Very well equipped kitchen with dining tables inside AND outside so you can enjoy ALL weathers; dining / eating al fresco.
13. Sat TV; a choice of channels - sport, movies etc PLUS a DVD player should you want to bring your own. We took the Breaking Bad series box sets.
14. Comfortable beds; blankets and heaters should you need them for the occasional chilly evening.
15. Shower rooms (en-suite upstairs) on both floors so no unwanted Q'ing when getting your family ready to go out.
16. PLENTY of storage space to hide your cases, goods and chattels out of the way until the sad time it is to get the back out for the packing effort required to go home.
17. Private parking (behind lockable gates) for at least five cars.
I could have come up with another 17 reasons if needs be. In fact, another 27 however, fast running out of space to type them all.
As we've stayed on the island for many years, no doubt one of the BEST VILLAS, the nicest owners and, at a great price.
Owner's Response: Wow Gary, thank you so much for your kind comments. We try to do everything we can to make Los Morales a good place to spend holidays - it is always reassuring to know that it is appreciated. Thanks again. John & Sandy
By Dennis W Newcastle on 25-Jan-2014
We have stayed in this property on two occasions now. The property is a delight! It is as the web site photographs illustrate beautifully furnished and equipped. The property was very well maintained and exceptionally clean. The owner provided very good service and information about the villa and the area. We particularly enjoyed the quiet, relaxing and comfortable feel of the property. It was however close enough to the nearby El Cotillo to provide easy access to restaurants, beaches etc. We have already recommended the property to a number of friends and relatives.
Owner's Response: Thank you Dennis. Very glad to see you continue to enjoy Los Morales!
Los Morales was perfect for us
By Anonymous From Germany on 28-Aug-2013
Los Morales was everything we had hoped for and was a home from home for two weeks. The villa was even nicer than on the photos and the peaceful location was fantastic. Nearby El Cotillo was easily reached with all the amenities we needed (Supermarket, Restaurants etc.). Besides the high quality of the villa, we appreciated the rural location of El Roche and the water sport activities in El Cotillo. We visited a few major tourist resorts on the island, but were so pleased to return to the more authentic und unspoilt area on the north west coast.
We can highly recommend Los Morales and we would definitely like to return.
Owner's Response: Thank you Kirsty, so pleased you enjoyed the location as much as we do. Its just about as good as you can get! John & Sandy
By Janella Norwich on 26-Aug-2013
We enjoyed our 2nd week on the island here. We prefer a more remote villa to get away from it all. The location was perfect, peaceful, with uninterrupted views, beautiful gardens and privacy. The villa itself is large and well laid out and thought out. Our teenagers enjoyed the dvd collection, which kept them out of the heat of the day. As cook I have never been to such a well stocked kitchen re spices, dishwasher tablets etc, Would love to come back again, a real home from home with sunshine. My husband a keen cyclist hired a road bike from Corralejo and enjoyed the countryside.
Owner's Response: Thank you Janella & family, really pleased you enjoyed your stay.
