About Macdonald Villacana Club

This relaxed resort with whitewashed buildings and flower bordered lanes is set between between Estepona and Marbella on the Costa del Sol. Along with its quaint village atmosphere, Macdonald Villacana Club boasts beautifully landscaped gardens and both indoor and outdoor pools.

Light and airy apartments with tile floors and shuttered windows feature open-plan living areas, fully-equipped kitchens, and private terraces/balconies. All accommodations offer flat-screen TVs, safes, and sofa beds; some provide barbecues. Three-bedroom villas are also available.

Guests can workout in the gym, play tennis and snooker, and indulge themselves with a Turkish bath, sauna, and spa treatments. A playground and organised activities are provided for kids, and free Wi-Fi is accessible everywhere.

Indoor and outdoor a la carte dining is offered in the laid-back El Rincon Restaurant. Casual meals, drinks, and nightly shows are on hand in the poolside bar.

Several highly regarded golf courses lay within 15 minutes' drive of Macdonald Villacana Club. Heaven Beach is just 800 metres away.

Positive Reviews

Good quality studios/apartments

For the most part, previous guests have been pleased with the quality of the studios and apartments at the Macdonald Villacana Club, often describing the accommodation as clean and as offering a considerate selection of amenities.

Well maintained grounds

With the exception of perhaps the path that leads from the resort to the beach, guests find that this resort and its grounds are well maintained. There appear to be very few instances of poor maintenance in the individual accommodation.

Best of both worlds

Reviews suggest that whether you're looking for a relaxing retreat or fancy being a bit more active, you'll find that this resort is in a great spot. There's little traffic noise to worry about and you can easily access the beach or try your hand at one or more activities.

Negative Reviews

Limited facilities in off-season

While guests generally appreciate the selection of on-site facilities, some do mention that various activities are not available when visiting off-season. Guests also note that the restaurant would be more convenient if it were to offer longer opening hours.

Extra costs add up

Few guests are thrilled about paying for electricity during their stay, especially as many found the associated costs were excessive. Also, some guests found the dining and Malaga shuttle service attracted higher fees than anticipated.

Need a car

With the exception of the beach, there is little in the way of dining spots and entertainment in the immediate area. Guests can easily visit nearby towns such as Puerto Banus and Marbella but a car would be beneficial if you'd prefer to avoid racking up taxi fees.
