The beach although a coral beach the view is amazing. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a relaxing vacation. The Villas do not have Tv's or telephones. Wish... More

I loved this place. Everything about it was exactly what I needed. If there was ever anything not quite right, they rectified it immediately and without question. Elieth is a server there and every time we saw her, she greeted us with the biggest smile. She was helpful and attentive and even made sure that my friends and I didn't... More
