Gorgeous resort, super service! We had a pool villa with a full ocean view (there are also partial ocean view villas), and it was fantastic. You have the option of walking to the lobby, which is maybe a few hundred metres away, or calling a buggy that gets to you within about three minutes. Our reservation included breakfast which was...

Perfect location, wonderful property and views, accommodation in an one bed panoramic villa is well worth the expense; however overall experience is made by the quality of service and professionalism from every staff member you encounter.

I stayed in April with a dear friend, i booked one of the larger double suites for us. The room was actually enormous, larger than a small house. The plunge pool was very pretty.

This property is beautiful...and massive. The villas are perfect. Very spacious and luxurious with a nice plunge pool and an outdoor shower (always love an outdoor shower).

Had a wonderful 6 days here in September. Everything was excellent- super room with sea view, plunge pool, very high standard of housekeeping, 2 beautiful secluded beaches, great food. Friendly helpful staff, in particular Head Chef Robin- what a character, and the most helpful Polish waiter in the a la Carte restaurant ,where the food was always delicious.
