Wow. What a great place. From the moment our boat pulled up I was awe struck by the beach and the limestone cliffs. The resort itself has a great pool and lots of chairs to lounge around. We had a spa deluxe room and unfortunately our spa sprang a leak after check in. A quick call to reception though and... More

We loved this place. The seclusion makes it for me. I went paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing, swimming all before lunch. The monkeys are awesome and a real highlight although I was surprised to see the staff shooting at them with slingshots. The room was great and cleaned well daily. We had a spa/jacuzzi on the deck and it was great.... More

This is a wonderful resort, for those who want a quiet holiday among beauty. The location is amazing -- a secluded bay that has no road access. The beach slopes gently into the sea, so it is safe for swimmers and waders. Behind the hotel are limestone cliffs. There are two stunning pools, with many surprise features: fountains, a waterfall,... More
