We booked the whole villa as we were a group of 6. One couple had to stay in the cottage. Unfortunately the cottage cannot compete with the rooms in the main house. The cottage is more basic and not luxurious.
The two rooms in the main house were beautiful. No doubt the premium suite is the best choice if you plan on staying here.
Rob and Lionel are great hosts and they help you with whatever you need. Their breakfasts are delicious and they go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Their restaurant and excursion tips were perfect.
The Moongate Villa is a lovely retreat in this area. It is pretty central to most activities but you cannot reach any restaurants within walking distance.
The reason why I have rated them with 4 instead of 5 is due to the cottage.
