I just returned from a week stay at the villa. I was alone but met up with four family members and five. Friends, thus a group of ten.
Seven of us checked in together and it took a while and a second agent assisted in a few moments. They were so pleasant and willing to accommodate our group with six rooms. The bell hops were/are super. Full of information, help and smiles.
The hotel is older but each of our suites was just fine. The kitchen and bathroom areas are very clean and not a bug in sight. The bed and sitting area is well appointed. Comfortable, clean and nicely arranged. A LG TV with full satellite service....very good. A lot of cupboard, drawers and storage space in the kitchen. Good door locks and a safe for ones valuables.
The maids are wonderful gals, even with language difficulties they understood our needs with a smile.
The pool attendants, pool bar, snack bar and events personnel, just great. We enjoyed the tournaments, ping pong, shuffle board, bocci and volleyball games were equally fun to participate in and to watch.
My personal opinion about the foods is mixed. Either really good or very poor service. Food quality is OK but not fantastic. We took a Suburban SUV cab to town and chose restaurants there. Selection and quality are 4-5 star.
Yes, I would return and recommend this hotel. We were not hassled about time shares, all low key.
I am glad that we did not take the all inclusive package as we enjoyed trying out the restaurants that we enjoyed so much.
