Villa guest testimonials

Here's what some of our guests have had to say about their stay in a Scott Dunn villa:

Can Queneilles, Mallorca - Pepperrell/Richardson, September 2016

"Natalie was a treasure and was fantastic with our children and turned up early every day and stayed late each day until she was happy everything was done. Nick cooked fantastic meals which we all loved and Vicky was amazing and never stopped working and make sure everything ran like clockwork - I want them all to come home with me! Fun times in the pool happy that all children were safe and sitting down each evening and being offered drinks, amazing! Fantastic Villa, can't beat the service. No one else offers this kind of vacation."

Las Palmeras, Mallorca - Aikens, September 2016

"James has been a fantastic chef and Fizz an excellent host. The quality of the food surpassed our expectations. Every meal has been excellent and nothing was ever too much trouble. The service from start to finish has been first class. The childcare has also been excellent. Megan has been a fantastic nanny. Again, nothing has been too much trouble for her. From the very start she has kept the children entertained with fun activities and lots of variety. This has meant all the adults have been able to enjoy a proper vacation and everyone has enjoyed it equally. Megan has been reliable and flexible and she gained our confidence very quickly. We have really appreciated the flexibility around hours and the fact our nannies were here from the minute we arrived and started early on our last morning to allow us to pack and also enjoy the last day. The service Megan, James and Fizz have provided has made our vacation memorable and one which we are keen to repeat (having researched many different options and agonised over what would suit everyone best!)."

La Samantina, Mallorca - Moulton, September 2016

"This has been the best vacation any of us have ever had! We love it so much we booked for next year whilst still on this vacation. Please can Phil and Chester be here next year - they've been incredible and the nannies were the best we have ever experienced."

Sarieta, Mallorca - Caveney, September 2016

"Katie was fantastic - from organising taxis, lunch etc. on our day out, flowers for my birthday and especially for taking the time to take us to the medical center when our son wasn't well. Rose was brilliant with both kids, especially keeping our son engaged in all sorts of activities and allowing us to have a bit of a break too! Adam, our chef, was fantastic - delicious food cooked and presented beautifully, taking into account all our dietary requests! Molly was also brilliant - so friendly and making sure we had everything we needed all the time. Everyone was so friendly and helpful... Nothing was too much trouble! We will certainly miss all this back home!"

La Vinya, Mallorca - Roberts, September 2016

"All three staff were outstanding. Nick, Vicky and Billie were amazing. Nick - provided simply amazing food all week. Not only for adults but importantly the children, taking great care to provide variety and interest. From sushi night, tapas night and light lunches, his food was plentiful, delicious and to the highest standard. Vicky's attention to detail was second to none, always happy to help and friendly. Remembering the littlest of details such as how we liked our tea in the morning, through to who liked still vs sparkling water, and even what color cutlery our 3yo liked to eat with! Billie was wonderful and the kids warmed to her (and the rest of the team) instantly. It was fab to be able to leave the kids in Billies care knowing they were going to be looked after so well. Variety of activities was excellent."

Bastide des Virettes, South of France - Burr, August 2016

"This is our third year with Scott Dunn. The accommodation teamed with the staff is the reason we have kept coming back. Sophie is a talented chef with a wonderful personality and an innovative approach. We have eaten very well and been delighted with her creativity and excellence. Lily has tasted foods that she has refused to eat before and enjoyed them. Sophie has been very flexible and catered to our various food preferences with ease and grace. Rhi is a lively, kind and sensitive team player, fantastic with the children and helpful to everybody. She has really made a difference to our vacation, making us feel looked after and the house organized and welcoming. Gracie is an excellent nanny, as with the rest of the team, going out of her way to make our vacation relaxing ( for us) and fun ( for the children). She is quiet and calm. The children bonded with her very quickly and had a wonderful time doing activities together. She was able to include our 3, 8 and 10 year old in activities together."

La Pequena, Mallorca - Tan, August 2016

"Jonny, Katie and Hannah have all been excellent and have made our time on vacation so relaxing and enjoyable. They were all great with the boys and in anticipating our needs. The service from the villa team take away all the work and stress of vacationing with young children."

Villa Épure, South of France - Hayley, August 2016

"Fanny is a fantastic chef and prepared delicious, well balanced and nutritious meals which we really appreciated. We don't know how she managed to produce so much incredible food for us all! She is so well organized and everything was catered for down to the last detail. Natalie was very adaptable with our boys and a clear communicator; perfect for two idiosyncratic little boys of 6 and (nearly) two! Phil was excellent and made sure we had everything that we needed at all times, he was there when we needed him and melted away when we didn't. The team, service and food were outstanding. Such a comfortable vacation that meets all expectations."

Can Lladroner, Mallorca - McAleavy, July 2016

"Rose and Jade have been incredible all week, The five children have been so excited about going over to the play barn every day "When are the ladies coming?" has been heard a lot! The diversity of activities and their calm and patient nature have really made the vacation for both families. Lewis' adventurous style and commitment to try new things has been a highlight for us and the quality is higher than any restaurant we've visited. The menus this week have set this vacation apart from others. But the final note must be for our host George, who has worked tirelessly going above and beyond the call of duty. Her work ethic, likeable nature and genuine desire for us to have the most relaxing time have really set her apart."

Villa Canacati, Mallorca - McAleavy, July 2016

"I'd say three main things make me recommend Scott Dunn vacations to colleagues; impeccable villas, the highest quality of food I've ever come across, but most importantly the level of all the Scott Dunn staff, nothing is too much trouble and it makes vacationing with young kids a genuinely relaxing experience."

Luminx, South of France - Reid, July 2016

"Hugely talented and creative chef (the most amazing meals, no idea how Rosie does it!!), friendly, super helpful and always smiling host, Kathryn, delightful, versatile nanny Carla who has done a brilliant job entertaining Clemmie and a very efficient villa manager, Heather who has helped on many levels, from brilliant restaurant recommendations to finding the nearest A&E department with directions. Brilliant team - well done Scott Dunn! A fabulous team have looked after us - professional, friendly, helpful, happy and discrete. Like staying in a 5 star hotel but privately, allowing us wonderful uninterrupted family time."

El Noveno, Mallorca - Dawes, July 2016

"Amazing service and great value for our money! Kat was really welcoming and very hospitable. Pip's food was incredible and Katie was very helpful with arranging things for us. Beautiful villa, conveniently close to the pretty town, an all-round fantastic vacation."

La Maison Blanche, South of France - Morrissey, June 2016

"Really great staff - the whole team were brilliant and friendly, and couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. A great first experience of Scott Dunn - more to come! It really is a vacation, often it's harder work being away with young children than being at home with them but not with Scott Dunn. Extremely well organized company."

La Font, Mallorca - Young, June 2016

"Ollie is a brilliant Chef. He listened to all of our requests and prepared numerous superb dishes. We liked every single thing he made for us, brilliant! Dawn is a superb nanny. The children loved her from the beginning and were very sad to say goodbye, we hope she will stay in touch. She arranged great activities that kept the children entertained whenever we wanted a bit of quiet time. She also accompanied us on several beach trips which made the time far more relaxing for us (that third pair of eyes is invaluable with young children). Nicki was a great concierge who made us feel very welcome and dealt with all of our requests very quickly and efficiently. At no point were the staff intrusive and their discretion was admirable."
