We stayed here for 7 nights recently.
Our first impression was of a ghost town. It seemed like we were the only people staying in the entire resort (we probably were!)
The whole complex is in various stages of completion, and there is definitely a lot of construction going on, however this did not intrude on us in any way. We can imagine that this will be a popular place in years to come and feel privileged to stay here with so much space and freedom!
The holiday villa we stayed in (number 8) was beautifully appointed with absolutely everything we could need. It seemed to us that no-one had cooked properly in the kitchen before as everything seemed brand new.
Airconditioning upstairs and downstairs. Massive flat screen tv in bedroom and living room with cable tv. Great wifi.
Supermarket bakes fresh bread each day and was well stocked with food and drink (but at an inflated price). There was a restaurant and bar but we decided to cook for ourselves most nights.
The best thing about the villa was that the hotel staff cleaned the entire place, including kitchen, for us each day! Maybe we were expecting too little, but we were assuming it to be a holiday rental type place with maybe a towel change every few days or so. We were very pleasantly surprised.
Played golf at the well established course, and was impressed. Reasonably priced round, but expensive club hire - so bring your own! (40e for clubs, 35e for round!)
We had a pool to ourselves by our villa which was lovely, but may be a little hot in summer with no shade (currently no umbrellas).
Car parking right outside your doorstep. Security present on property.
One small request would be for the residence to have a kitchen cloth and its own dishwashing liquid, just so we could do some of our own cleaning up! (we didn't mind leaving it all for the cleaning ladies, but could have at least wiped the bench sometimes if we had a cloth!)
We feel privileged to have stayed at this resort, and to essentially have the run of the place to ourselves. We look forward to returning in a few years time, but imagine that it will be a lot different by then!
