We had a unforgettable overall experience. We stayed there end of November for 5 days. Everything was immaculate, from the excellent service of all the staff, to the food, to our water villa...etc. The resort was actually fully booked at the time, but we never felt this. It gives you the feeling of being completely relaxed in its quietness. I...

We had a wonderful stay over the week between Christmas and New Year. Even though it was supposed to be the busiest week in the holiday calendar, the resort never felt crowded. In fact it was a bit too quiet at times, if that can ever be a complaint. We stayed in the basic villa which was nice enough. The...
