We stayed at Days at Sea for 6 nights during what is classified as peak period. However for 90% of our stay we were the only guests and yet we were charged peak rates which was exorbitant. The room was average, lacking in a bathtub and lunch and dinner had to be paid for. It was more expensive staying at...

We stayed for 4 nights at the Artist's Villa. The house was an absolute dream as was the service. Maurice and Beaton took excellent care of us. Their restaurant is also a treat.....absolutely delicious (the decor and atmosphere feel like Mikonos). Spa service is also very nice. I cannot recommend this place enough. It was THE BEST.

This place is great. We spent part of our honeymoon at Days at Sea. It was four unforgettable days of fun and sun filled with breathtaking views, beautiful beaches and dangerously delicious food. The staff were warm, friendly, and extremely hospitable. Guido and Annette, the owners, have created a sanctuary for relaxation and they were a joy to meet.
