Dear Lunalove, Thank you for your feedback, I understand the value of putting things down in writing when you have an experience that stays on your mind. The temptation, on the very rare occasion I read a review like yours is to go through each point and respond accordingly, however, in your case I do not feel this is appropriate,...

We stayed in this villa, there were 3 adults and 5 children. We had mixed feelings about the resort. I have travelled extensively in primitive accommodation back packing and in luxurious accommodation so I will provide the most balanced review that I can. On arrival both myself and the other female in the group were quite disappointed with the accommodation....

We stayed here for a week with a couple of friends. I'd like to give this place a 4, but there is definitely a few things that need to be rectified. The villas themselves are absolutely stunning, and if I was rating them alone, rather than the whole experience, I'd have no problem giving a 4. Firstly, the good things!...
