This small hotel is excellent for a day (or a few days) getting away from it all, or for work-related retreats. The property is beautiful, clean and peaceful. The staff are helpful and friendly, and the food is delicious. The hotel is not on the main road, but is easy to find, and while it is not on the beach... More

We ended up staying here for 2 nights due to my wife not being allowed to fly because of an ear infection. We had a terrible 2 week stay at the Grand Bahia resort and was so surprised and happy about how friendly and helpful the staff at Sonate are. The hotel sits away from the main road and has... More

We ended up staying at Villa Sonate after the all inclusive we had originally booked tried to pull a bait & switch. I have to say I don't regret it at all as the Villa Sonate staff is excellent, welcoming and accommodating. The only thing missing was a pool - the pool is currently being repaired. Next time we will... More

We were looking for a place to stay that was close to the venue for Rebel Salute when we were referred to Villa Sonate. What a blessing that was! The location was not that close but the hotel made arrangements for one of their staff (Andre) to take us back and forth during our stay. He was so pleasant and... More

Villa Sonate was the perfect place for my husband and I to bring in the new year. This charming property is tucked away, in the hills, yet near the beach, in Runaway Bay. The staff was amazing; they were a perfect blend of attentive, friendly and discreet. I booked the villa after reading about the breakfasts. Micana, the chef, made... More

I went to the villa to get away from Club Ambiance. The staff is awesome. Very good meals and not a big variety but excellent food. Very quiet, no entertainment, Just very laid back and beyond friendly Pool under refit right now, very nice well looked after garden style property
