We had such an amazing time staying at the Villas for our honeymoon. The villas were exactly what we were looking for-- private, very near the beach, kitchen (with blender and coffee maker) and AC in the bedroom to sleep at night. Yateem was absolutely outstanding helping us set up all of our activities and answering questions. All of the reviews we read before arriving were great in describing how great this spot was, but I'll add a few things we were wondering about:
-There is food within walking distance, although rent a bike or a quad, it will save you time. Roca Mar is a little beach bar with great hangout/ conversation areas set up and really decent food and is literally on your walk to the beach. They do lunches and dinners. We found great breakfast about a 4 minute walk up the beach upon recommendation from Yateem, although with the kitchen, most days we had breakfast on our amazing front porch. Great dinners to be had all over town with prices from very low to lofty.
-You can swim and surf on the beach out front. Many places we looked at claimed the beachfront, but some beaches are really rocky and not safe to swim in. Definite plus.
-Town is a (fairly) easy bike ride away, and a decent stroll. We really liked this- kept us close enough to go in to visit the bakery, hit the atm, etc, but far enough away to feel, well, away. We opted to rent a quad (set up again by the amazing Yateem) and really felt like it was worth the money. It allowed us to explore some other beaches, carry surfboards, go to dinner way down the beach, etc.
-This place is SUPER CLEAN. I can't express how both friendly and thorough Maria and her sister are- they do an outstanding job, and really pay attention to details. Fresh flowers on the outside dining table and on our bed every night. So great.
-There is a safe in the villa, big enough for a laptop/ Ipad, and some small personal belongings. We were constantly warned about locking things up and about theft, so this was great.
-They provide beach towels.
We had such an amazing trip, and were genuinely sad to leave. We will be back.
