Breakfast was served at the villa or you could go to the main restaurant. Relaxing and very clean, easy to walk into the main shopping and restaurant... More

The villa was beautiful! But unfortunately, the wifi and tv connection was really bad, towels were not frequently changed and the aircond remote did not work for one of the rooms. There were loads of mosquitoes and other insects, which is understandable due to the fact that the place was majority out doors except for the bedrooms.
