We spent here 1 week during our honeymoon in 2010. First of all, this is a very good accodomation for this price, so five star for value. But the villas could be a bit more renewed, maybe it is already done since 2010. The furnitures quite old, and used, and no AC so it is a bit hot. Actualy we... More
