    Hi Philip, If you type Villasol into the search facility you will find plenty of information from the Funsters who stayed at Villasol last winter. There are quite a few of us returning this year, hope you can join us.

    Brisey.

    Agree on above....It's a nice site unless you have dog. !!!
    They dont allow them.. :thumb:

    Not anti dog by any means, love em to bits.. Before anyone comments..:Eeek:

    You get more hassle from the people returning late at night or should I say the very early hours in the morning..
    No names... Cough. - "Brisey" - Cough. lol

    Thank's again one and all. Reading through the threads I formed the view they might do a group rate for Funster's ? Has this been tried ?
    Also, it would appear no reservations unless staying for 6 months ! is this still the case.
    Finally, is there any major development work going on in the immediate vicinity ! Noise issues!

    No work in area and its been that way for years.. Dog barking from other areas is the worst noise you get.

    Hard to negotiate a deal as we all turn up at different times and as they dont book anyone unless you stay 6 months it's quite flexible to just turn up.. We have done it like that for years and never had an issue.
    This year we only stayed a few days travelling down to Morocco and a few days on way back. We asked and then matched the €16 rate but electric was extra, although we did not need any as such a short stay.

    Out of interest I was up at El Raco on Tuesday and asked about a deal for a group.. They were not bothered, just shrugged and said no...

    We went onto their website last week and made a booking and got confirmation back as well. So their online system works for short periods as well. See you there. :thumb:

    I think that is for one person? Each extra adult is another 43.30 per 7 day period.

    1 x Parcela simple 88.20 €
    1 x Adulto 43.40 €
    TOTAL Stay 131.60 €
    Deposit 13.16 €

    Tips... Villasol..

    1.. If you plan to only stay 2 or 3 weeks, tell them you are staying in excess of a month to get the rate, electric is metered and we have usually never averaged more than €1 a day but watch out as Electric prices are going up all the time.. If you leave prior to the month you can say you have an emergency so you have to go. However never had them ask me when i have left prior to a month and always had the 31 day rate.

    2. Keep your receipt for future visits and push the fact your an old customer and thats the rate you got..

    3. Ask for them to match ACSI, they were doing this in early 2013. We only did a 2 day stop and a 4 day on way on way back. Got €16, Electric was extra but we did not take it as only stopping a short while and had solar..

    They are usually quite flexible if you get the right guy on the desk..
    Good luck :thumb:

    Benicassim is worth a visit, but was a little to quiet for us. A lot of the shops etc close down over winter.

    In and around Benidorm you have a massive choice every day - non stop FUN or quiet and rest, whatever you wish.

    If you need a real change in life style there is always the Sticky Vicky show. She is always very good at pulling something out of the bag. :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    There is a big rumour here in Benidorm at the moment that she is thinking of retirement and opening a bingo hall..
