I was a little apprehensive when i booked this hotel - it was a bit of a last minute decision, and there were not masses of photographs on their website. However, i went with the tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed! We booked a villa with plunge pool and the place was fantastic (Villa 16). It was massive (had three bedrooms), a beautiful kitchen and a gorgeous little garden with a pool. Our typical day involved cooking breakfast together at home (but the breakfasts at the beach restaurant are really good), sitting in our garden enjoying the morning sun, and then heading to the beach in the afternoon for lunch and some beach fun! The backyards are almost completely private which is nice if you are on a romantic vacation, and the plunge pools are just the right size to jump in and take a dip. The beach, although not the white sand and turquoise waters one expects from the caribbean, is lovely and the kiteboarding looked to be a lot of fun.
The staff were fantastic - gracious and so so helpful. We had hired a rental car which unfortunately got a flat tire - and one of the staff at the hotel (and i am ashamed to admit i forgot his name) took the tire to the garage for us to get it fixed! We had valentines dinner at the hotel's formal restaurant which was delicious - especially for island food.
We will be sure to return - we will probably bring our parents as this is a great place for families as you can vacation together without being on top of one another. I highly recommend and cannot wait to go back!
