My friend and I stayed at the villas- beautiful location, amazing view from the window/ terrace, and excellent service. The interior of the room was clean, simple, and nice. Basic amenities but enough. We were pleasantly surprised by the customer service, of everyone who worked there- including Danny at concierge who went over the top to meet our needs, and... More

From the welcome to the departure, every moment of every day was amazing. We had the best concierge, Michael. All the staff were top notch, very friendly and most accommodating. They made you feel like family. The accommodations, "bungalow" and "hide-away", spectacular. The views from the bungalow (#212) breathtaking. Everything you needed was in walking distance, car not necessary. A... More
