The villa was easy to get to from the airport, 35 euros each way for a taxi (not pre-booked) for us all together.
Spotlessly clean and a welcome of croissants, jam, milk and biscuits. Everything you need is in the villa, information well explained and more than enough utensils, equipment, fans, extra blankets - everything!
The walk to the centre is about 5 mins walk on a slight decline - coming back you can grab a taxi at the bottom and they'll bring you back for about 4 euros. Nice places to eat and have coffee, some little bazaar shops/gift shops.
Pool is excellent, as is the BBQ area, we ate at the villa most nights. Shopped at Mercadona, massive supermarket (8 euros each way in taxi) and it all worked out a really reasonable price for a large group.
We would definitely come back, a magnificent holiday with great information and contact with the owners. The service we received enabled us to have a fuss free, enjoyable holiday, perfect - cannot say anything negative about it!

This was the second time we stayed at this house and have booked again for next year. We are a 3 generation family with 6 adults and 4 children ranging in age from 2 to 10. Callao is a very family orientated resort and the children loved the beach, the friendly ice cream shop and the oceanfront playground. They spent a lot of time however in the heated, well maintained pool at the house and all 4 of them improved their swimming significantly during the week.

Hi Paul and Jo,
We really enjoyed our stay in your property. The house was larger and nicer then it seemed to be on the photos. The beds were very good. And the house was clean. The swimming pool was perfect.
Otherwise the house is more than well equipped. We have had a great time for all of us and may be once we will meet again!!
Kind regards of us all, Boudewijn en Annemieke Biemond

We surprised my mum for her 60th and hired the villa with 15 of us
staying there - 7 children and 8 adults!
The preparation to make this week special for my mum was key! So we can't thank Jo and Paul enough for everything they have done for us!
The description of the villa is spot on, the location was fantastic, the villa it's self host
All 15 of us with another 3 friends that visited us by day as well and we didn't once feel like we were getting in each other's way! And of course the sun made the gorgeous swimming pool even more gorgeous!
We typically ate breakfast at the villa and one meal in and one meal we ate out!
We had a night out in playa des America and went to visit the volcano!
Arranged by Paul we had two special cakes made and delivered to our villa for my mums birthday and also my brothers!
So many special memories made in just that one week - thank you Paul
And Jo for helping us and your lovely Villa
The heated pool with a selection of inflatables was a big hit with my sons (aged 8 and 6) who would stay in there all day every day given the choice. The large dvd collection, English tv channels and wifi were a welcome option to get out of the midday sun (and the one morning of rain we had).
The villa itself was large and our party of 5 (3 generations) had more than enough space and privacy. It's only a short walk down a gentle hill to a good selection of restaurants and shops. We particularly enjoyed the Bombay Babu Indian restaurant and there is an all you can eat style chinese/Indian buffet restaurant which is excellent value. We didn't have a bad meal the whole week.
We only had one issue while we were there and the owners were very helpful and quick to respond. I would definitely recommend this villa and Callao Salvaje is a lovely, quiet little resort, perfect for family holidays. I'm hoping to return soon.
