We shared this villa with another family and had a wonderful time. The small (2 bedroom villa) is perfect for a weekend getaway. Each family had separate rooms, and we were able to put the toddlers to sleep upstairs and have our adult time hanging out in the living area downstairs. The open layout is great for entertaining and hanging out, and the villa is in pretty nice condition.
Some areas of improvement: the hotel seemed to be skimpy in villa necessities such as enough toilet paper (or extra toilet paper), kleenex boxes, salt pepper, and towels. We found ourselves having to call housekeeping all the time for all these extra necessities. Sometimes it would take a awhile to get what we needed.
The hotel grounds itself is beautiful. The beach is amazing, beautiful, and clean. The pool area is really nice, with a huge wading/kiddie pool for the little ones.
Area of improvement for a hotel: Please have conference events occur away from the shared/public area, such as the pool. The Sunday that we stayed there, relaxing by the pool was a little difficult as there was a a huge loudspeaker in the open grass area nearby, with very loud music playing, then a loud emcee leading groups in team-building games. I suggest moving those types of activities to a more remote area away from the pool.
