.. but don't want it to be booked out when you next try to stay yourself? Having struggled with my conscience, I've decided to take the moral high ground and put on record here the high praise that the Deux Tours deserves. The bedrooms, gardens, pool area, dining areas, bar etc are all lovely .. the general ambience is one of staying in a old colonial / country villa belonging to a rich friend with very good taste .. old tiles, simple fireplaces that feel used (though not needed in the 35 degrees temperature when we were there), thick walls that keep rooms cool, lighting through clever skylights, courtyards with orange trees, bougainvillaea, frogs and turtles in the ponds .... and the beds were really comfortable. Perhaps the crowning glory is the cuisine - the quality of ingredients is very high (many vegetables grown in the garden which come fresh to your plate - at breakfast the kitchen staff walk past with a fist full of fresh herbs they've just picked and the scent is intoxicating) and the dishes are so well prepared .. and sufficiently varied that we happily ate there for virtually all meals during our stay (having tried a more lauded restaurant in town and found it wanting by comparison) ...and this is from someone who is a bit of a foody and has eaten at plenty of starred restaurants (though this is not, and does not aspire to be, a michelin star type dining experience). Having started cautiously by not eating salads, having drinks with ice in them etc, I was assured that the water was fine and so decided to eat everything - with no adverse consequences (best caesar salad I've ever had - the red mullet with artichoke salad was also fantastic). The massages were very good too. The only thing I sort of missed was a fitness centre (I'd come with the intention of doing some exercise to compensate for the sins of over-eating) .. but I can see that to put in a fitness centre building would be totally out of character with the style of the place so I was content enough to swim several lengths of the (delightful) pool instead. So, all in all, please don't too many of you book this place - I want it to be available when I next want to go!
