What a place. Loved every bit. From arrival to check-in to going into your room for the first time you know this is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It doesn't fail to exceed expectations. Superb accommodation - from the living space to the outside terrace, from the sumptuous bed to the vast bathroom - everything is there, right down to the freshly squeezed orange juice delivered each morning from oranges picked on site. Dinner was simply a pleasure and the choice more than enough. Yes it has been recently refurbished so you would expect high standards and it does not fail to deliver in any way from the staff to the food, from the location to the villas. SIMPLY EXCELLENT. To be treated to a "welcome home" at the gate after a retail trip said it all - we could have stayed forever!
