We stayed at the Red Palm Villas for 7 nights with our 4 year old boy in September. We had such a lovely time; I do not understand the one bad review they, (I am very fussy, but I think maybe these people are worse:)))
Anyway, the one bedroom suite was just perfect as we were able to put our little one to bed and still be able to watch movies via WIFI and listen to music in the patio. The bed is a king size bed, so it was very comfortable to for the three of us to sleep in even though we would never do that usually. It was also a large bonus to have the kitchen to be able to cook and not having to eat out as well as snack for our son. We didn’t have breakfast included in our pack, so we just made our own most days, we did go to the restaurant they offer it at and it really is a gourmet breakfast which they advertise, the juices are fresh squeezed, the coffee is French pressed, everything is well made, fresh ingredients and beautiful presentation, definitely not the breakfast we would have expected in a package, 1st class without a doubt like everything else we experienced through this resort.
The bathroom as they said, “open air”, the shower had a great view of a very well maintained lush garden full of flowers, birds, butterflies and sweet scents especially in the evenings.
They offered a very inexpensive laundry service, each day our cloths were collected in the morning and returned in the afternoon, this was especially important traveling with a toddler.
The tide pools out front are great, our son spent about 6 hours a day there, we could never get him out, it was interesting for him to explore them all and safe. There is an opportunity to walk to several other resorts nearby. When we were greeted and asked where we were staying, they always had great things to say about the Red Palm Villas and their staff. The service and staff all throughout the resort was amazing, they were warm and friendly at all times. We had cocktails and watched the best sunsets each night in front of our villa, the beach is very private and quiet, there are several areas set up with hammocks which are very comfortable and everywhere as well as chaise lounge chairs, we rarely ran into other guests.
We loved it so much, it was our first trip there, we have our 10-year wedding anniversary coming soon and plan to come back and treat ourselves to the Honeymoon Villa, we had a chance to see it between guests, it’s a very cool original design villa right on the beach, we can’t wait to check that out next.
There are lovely restaurants, a few who offer entertainment at night, Kiki’s was a great spot with a cool local vibe, there they were playing music well after the dinner crowd went home which often created the best atmosphere. We just had such a lovely time and will go back again for sure. Highly recommend it for couples or families wanting something, private, exclusive, not like a huge public resort, they offer the ambiance of a well-staffed private compound/estate.
