I have recently got back from a week at Villa Esmeralda. The villa was incredible and exactly as stated in the description. Julia na Nicole could not have done more for us and was extremely hospitable with every request and phone call we gave him. The village of Riviera was great it had many places within 5-10 mins walk for eating and drinking. We got a taxi to the centre of Marbella a few times and only cost €22. The beach is great down there with lots of beach bars and restaurants. The old town and harbour is also beautiful. I will be back and stay here that is for sure and with Rafleys you cannot find a better host when looking for a villa. Thanks again!
