Villa Canacati, Mallorca - Smith, September 2018

Some of the best food we have eaten - totally redefines the quality of food you should expect in a catered villa. Adam is an incredible chef, we live in London and rarely eat meals out - even in the best restaurants - we would rarely have a meal where all three courses are so exceptional - and over 5 days. We have been blown away by the food he served - he should be one of your most valued employees. Tagatha and Elle were also great, polite and helpful and great with the kids. Nothing was too much trouble. If people want to cycle and have kids, this is amazing. If they want to eat better than any restaurant they've eaten in, they need to find Adam. Genuinely felt like we had a vacation, staff did everything they could to make us feel relaxed.

Villa La Font, Mallorca - Todd, September 2018

We've had many Scott Dunn vacations, and this would probably be our best. A big thank you to Freya, Chris and Jessica, they've given us a fantastic week full of wonderful memories of our time in Mallorca. Jessica has been a fantastic nanny for our three children. She's gained the trust of our children and they all adore her, especially our three year old! She's done lovely activities with them and they preferred staying to play with Jessica to going on outings with us!

Villa La Samantina, Mallorca - Smith, August 2018

Lewis & Marie have been outstanding in every way. The food has been exceptional; delicious, varied, creative & inclusive (we had pescatarians in our party). We cannot sing Lewis' praises highly enough and would definitely request him were we to come back again. Marie has been the perfect host. From our first introductions, she knew all of our names and simply couldn’t have done enough for us... even traveling to the Hydro Park to collect our tickets! Again, were we to rebook we would most certainly request Marie.

Villa Canacati, Mallorca - Smith, September 2018

The best Scott Dunn trip I have had. Adam was exceptional, Tagitha the kindest, nicest most efficient person I have met, went beyond and then some more. The nannies were spot on and matched the children perfectly. Olivia could not have tried harder with my daughter, Willow, my god I would have given up days before hand, but she kept trying out new activities and cracked her which is no easy task. Maddie was just so calming and loving with the babies and they will miss her!

Villa Cancabella, Mallorca - Patterson, August 2018

Both Jenny and Wasef have looked after us amazingly well. They have been unfailingly attentive, polite and entertaining, and we've thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them. Jenny has been the most fantastic manager, answering all our questions, making arrangements and taking such good care of us - nothing has been too much trouble. We have been able to totally relax, safe in the knowledge that Jenny is in charge. Wasef has given us incredible meals, listening to our requests but also coming up with delicious, imaginative menus that have been completely different every day. We particularly loved the tapas and sushi nights, but with every dish he has surprised and delighted us. His enthusiasm and passion for what he does is infectious. They are both a credit to the company.

Villa Constantins, France - Webster, August 2018

The entire “team” where absolutely first class. Professional yet very friendly and approachable at all times. Milly our host could not do enough to ensure we had everything we wanted. She was a delight to have around and ensured the villa remained top notch at all time whilst offering us advise on visits/ transport such as to the beach and the local villages (market day). Fergus our chef is a very likeable and more importantly a talented man. Frankly he constantly went the extra mile and gave up his time to ensure every meal was prepared and served to perfection. We eat out in London a lot and I can honestly say he’s up there with the best of them! When we fly it’s the crew that make for a good flight. Your team made for a really great vacation notwithstanding the high quality of the villa.

Both nannies (Maddy & Jordan) bonded with our children straight away. They were there if needed and in the back ground when not. Sincerely they were brilliant, be it in the play room face painting or in the pool encouraging the little ones to swim. They even brought over their own swim noodles for the children (and adults) to use. We felt we could all relax when we wanted too comfortable in the knowledge that the children were in safe hands Well done ladies! The children are already missing you both.

Villa Can Lladroner- Howarth, August 2018

Great family vacation, especially with our multi-generational group, but we are also considering asking another family to join us another time. All the food was exceptional, and particularly impressed that Freya prepared foods which were yeast and dairy free for dietary requirements. Chris took good care of us, including not hesitating in offering to go to the chemist immediately to collect some needed medication. Great facilities, lots for the children to do, and Grace went the extra mile. Many tears to be had when saying goodbyes, in fact our son was truly heartbroken.

Villa Epure, France - Patel, July 2018

The villa was ideal for our family and the outdoor facilities have been a godsend to us and the children. The pool, table tennis and outdoor sofas have allowed all of us to have our own space and enjoy quality family and individual time. The villa team have been exceptional and it has been a great introduction to the Scott Dunn villa experience. Something we would definitely like to experience again. They are a credit to the company and very quickly felt like family especially to the children. Since becoming parents we can honestly say that this is the first family vacation we have experienced where we have been totally at ease and relaxed and had genuine quality time together and to simply chill out. It has been a truly unforgettable experience for the entire family. The team have been remarkable and have gone out of their way to be the perfect hosts. Thank you.

Villa La Vinya, Mallorca - Ayres, July 2018

I'm not sure who loved the nannies more... The parents or the children. Steven and Meg were fantastic. The children had a week of activities planned, from princess days to football themed craft on the day of the quarter finals. Activities were both indoor and outdoor, and the children were able to dip in and out as when they wanted. They wanted to stay with the nannies more than their parents which is an accolade as to what great relationships and rapport they built up with our children. Jake was an exceptional host, and expertly supported by Georgia. They were the absolute dream team and surpassed all our expectations by a mile. Nothing was too much trouble. And both incredibly personable and friendly. James our chef was also fantastic. Every meal was carefully planned and expertly cooked. The food was simply divine. The food easily rivalled that of a top restaurant.

Villa Las Tortuguas, Mallorca - Penrose, June 2018

Being surrounded by native tortoises was wonderfully special and seeing them wander around, nibble on the lawn and shower under the sprinklers is something we will never forget! The villa team were fab overall. Violaine was an awesome host and ensured the whole experience was top notch. She's fantastic at her job and made the vacation amazing. She went out her way to ensure we were happy. Thank you!
