  • We have been to AL ZHARA many time mainly because everything you would want from a villa holiday is excellent. It is a home, so you have all the facilities you would expect in a home Even electric blankets are provided in the winter season as Moriara has good weather during the day in the winter but it can be chilly at night. The beds are the most comfortable we have ever had in a villa. This makes for a really good and happy holiday. Owners Delia and John are local so any problems are dealt with immediately. All in All Excellent

  • We were very reluctantly leaving Al Zhara to return to a cold UK. Thank you Delia and John for your very thoughtful and kind hospitality. Much appreciated. We have relaxed and recharged our batteries in the lovely winter sun with plenty of walking to our favourite place - Club Nautico (Yacht Club near Portet). We look forward to returning to Al Zhara in due course. We'd love to bring the grandchildren when they are a bit older. Best wishes.

  • Again a lovely holiday here at Al Zhara. All home comforts. Weather was brilliant for this time of year. Delia & John are a blessing, nothing too much trouble for them. Once again thank you both. See you in Feb 2015. Have a lovely Christmas. God Bless!
    David & Maureen Search (UK): Guestbook, Nov 2014
  • 5th - 24th October 2014. Our 6th visit in 8 years speaks for itself! The weather was faultless as indeed was Delia & Johns welcome. Al Zhara with all its homely comforts is the best equipped villa we have ever stayed in. It lacks nothing and cannot be surpassed. Couple this with a quiet, peaceful, yet easily accessible location, it comes as no surprise that we reluctantly return home feeling totally relaxed. We look forward to future visits. Tips: El Portet is the nearest beach and although small it is beautiful and safe for swimming. Several restaurants and free parking available. \'Rusty\'s Bar\' is a 3 minute drive over the hill and their steaks are very good. It is behind the Mercadona supermarket which is probably the best (and nearest) for shopping.

  • We left London in the rain; Arrived to villa al zhara in sunny Spain; Beer & cava oh so cool; We quenched our thirst by the pool; Al Zhara what a delight; It's so tranquil day & night; Our holiday end is now here; Home to the laptop to book for next year. Thank you Delia & John for a perfect week we forgot about the outside world for a whole 9 days in our Al Zhara bubble.
    Jo & Ray Wilkins (UK): Guestbook, Jun 2014
  • Thank you Nick. We thought Al Zhara has been the best Villa we have stayed in. Reasonable price and very very comfortable. Regards David

  • We visited Moraira towards the end of October, our 9th visit to Casa Al Zahara. We so much enjoy the total relaxation that we find at this lovely villa. The gardens and pool are beautiful and the surrounding area is so peaceful. The extra little touches provided by the owners John and Delia give such a home from home feel. Al Zahara is the perfect holiday retreat and our first choice when visiting Moraira. Thank you Delia for providing us with sandwiches and drinks when you realised we were arriving on a Bank Holiday when the shops would be closed your kindness was much appreciated. All in all this beautiful villa has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing, perfect holiday and we hope to return again very soon. Tips: Rusty's is a favourite of ours, the food is always good and the service is so friendly we enjoy the live entertainment on Friday and Monday.

  • Many thanks for the welcome pack. A super holiday, and can’t wait to return in September
    Hilary and Peter Westwood. (UK): Guestbook, Aug 2013
  • Third summer at Al Zhara and as always our holiday was wonderful thanks to such a warm and kind welcome from it’s owners. Thank you for Finka especially. We feel at home here and hope to come again next years. We were awfully lucky to have so many “Queen of the Night" flowering up to 24 in one night. Thanks again for everything and see you in 2014.
    Edith, Thierry and Finka. (France): Guestbook, Aug 2013
  • We have been to this area several times before amd always enjoyed it. This lovely villa is so well equipped and the area is really quiet and peaceful. The welcome basket was unexpected but very welcome, thanks you Delia and John. We hope to visit again sometime in the future.

    Chris Rollason M.B.E. Eastbourne (UK); Guestbook, Jun 2013
  • This is a fabulous villa in a very peaceful location. The furnishings, the outside space and the pool are all great. Delia & John [owners] went the extra mile with providing a welcome basket which was very much appreciated as were the telephone calls to see if we had arrived ok and to wish us well on our journey home. I want to thank you for all your help. You and the team, home and away, were fantastic with our booking and also the organisation at the villa, as always.
    Bruce Crutch & Jennifer Johnson, Abingdon (UK): Online Holiday Questionnaire, Jun 2013
  • Another lovely holiday at Al Zhara, we have had a lovely relaxing week despite a slow start to the weather. The villa and Moraira just as we remembered we hope to be back again very soon. Once again thank you John and Delia for everything that makes Al Zhara special.
    Theresa and Norman Harris (UK) Guestbook, May 2013
  • Great surprise to find welcome basket and wine and beer chilled for us! Best villa we have stayed in. As a wheelchair user have found the villa excellent. Facilities were second to none. Everything catered for and more. Have had a great week.
    Lesley and Laurence White, Edinburgh (UK): Guestbook, Apr 2013
  • We have had a lovely three and a half weeks in your beautiful and very well equipped villa. We have stayed in many villas but this one has to be the best by far. On the odd cloudy day which we have had the Naya has been a boon, we would have loved to have had a swim in your lovely pool, but at this time of year it has been a touch too cold even for our Geordie hardiness. We were very touched by the unexpected welcome basket, especially the cava, and the chilled glasses in the fridge. It has been wonderful to pick a fresh lemon for a G and T. and to juice fresh oranges which have been so cheap and plentiful at this time of the year.
    The T.V. and stereo system have been great, and the Wi-Fi signal so strong that we have even streamed Sky Sports on the iPad. We have enjoyed several lunchtime B.B.Q’s with fresh fish from the excellent nearby Mercadona.
    All in all a lovely winter break in a lovely villa, whose owners Delia and John obviously care that their guests have absolutely everything they need.
    Hope to return again when it is even warmer than February.
    Many thanks for a splendid time.
    Valerie & Jim Giles, Newcastle on Tyne (UK): Guestbook. Stayed February 7 to March 2. , Mar 2013
  • Excellent villa, very well equipped. Villa supervisor and owners were extremely friendly and helpful with our minor issues. Would definitely recommend this villa to future holiday makers.
    Emma Eadie (UK): Online Holiday Questionnaire, Sep 2012
  • Excellent Villa, quiet location, a car/taxi is a must for getting to town. Owners left us bubbly and welcome pack on arrival, very clean villa, booked several through other holiday companies in same area in recent years and Villa Spain far outweigh all of them. Easy to book, excellent communication, felt assured prior and throughout the holiday that there would be help should the need have arisen. We all had a fab time, what more could anyone ask for? Many thanks.
    Tony Osborne: Questionnaire, Sep 2010
  • Excellent villa, owners added their special treatment to make our stay enjoyable.
    John Jardine: Questionnaire, Aug 2010
  • Thank you for your letter dated 24th August and return of our deposit. I wanted to let you know how impressed we have been with the service from Villa Spain and also the villa we hired from you. It totally lived up to our expectations having read your extensive review and seen the photographs on your website. We met the owners and they were both very friendly and helpful. If fact the one bit of trouble we had was that the fridge / freezer failed during our first week. John (owner) came over within 40 minutes and set us up with use of a fridge and freezer in the garage. The next working day they oversaw the delivery of a brand new fridge freezer. You could not have asked for more. Our journey, going by ferry from the UK to Bilbao and then crossing Spain also worked incredibly well. We are seriously thinking of rebooking the same three weeks next summer at the same Villa recognising that we couldn’t want for more – one questions, would I need to pay 20% deposit immediately to secure that. I may need to wait until the cash flow has recovered somewhat from the last holiday! I also appreciate your efforts on the offsetting programme, it is nice to see a business take environmental matters so seriously, something I do in my own business. If there was one comment I would make that would improve your service even more, that would be to put a name to “Villa Spain” . In all the information you have sent, whilst it has been superb, it is completely anonymous. Initially it did put me off but now I have got used to it. With this aside our experience has been fantastic, please feel free to quote this in your own publicity.
    Graham Crawshaw: Email, Aug 2010
  • This was our third visit to 'Al Zhara' and will not be our last. We have been regular villa renters in this area over the last 10 years or so and this villa rates the highest. Its location, facilities and homliness cannot be bettered. The owners, whom we have met several times cannot be faulted in their friendliness and endeavour to please their clients. We have no hesitation in fully reccommending 'Al Zhara'.
    David & Anne Gifford: Online Holiday Questionnaire, Nov 2009
  • Excellent service once again from Villa Spain. Al Zahara is a beautiful villa with lots of little touches that make a holiday special. We have been back to this villa a number of times and hope to return again, every holiday we have spent at Al Zahara has been memorable for all of the right reasons and on this occassion superb weather was an added bonus. Thank you.
    Teresa & Norman Harris: Online Holiday Questionnaire, Oct 2009
