The property is very suitable for families with young children or groups of women, as access to the property is via an electric coded gate which opens to a private car park and closes automatically behind you after one minute. The head entrance can be locked and each guest has a key to the main door. No strangers can just walk on to the premises without being noticed or without having the code, making the property a very secure and safe environment for those staying. In addition there is staff on site 24 hours and the premises are regularely checked and the pool and Jacuzzi kept in good working order.

The large layered swimming pool makes it easy for children to play in the shallow end whilst the parents keep an eye on them from the adjacent lawn. It is also suitable for those with a fear of water and/or unable to swim as there is a fixed table in the undeep end which gives them the opportunity to keep their feet cool without having to go all the way in. Although not perfect, it would be possible for people with a slight disability or those who are partially bound to a wheelchair to stay at the Cortijo as most of the property is ground floor.
