Excellent property and location. Restaurant good. Booked transfers from the airport and they didn’t show up. No real apology from the property or indication this was a concern. Only got to the property through intervention of kind stranger as we arrived late at night. Most staff good but some just cold and clueless, not appropriate given the price. Might stay again but would have to think about it.

Loved the beautiful villa on the beach. The little private garden with the outside shower was fantastic - used it everyday. The food was delicious and the staff felt like family. Will definitely go back

This was one of the most beautiful hotels we have ever stayed at. The service and attention to detail was world class. It was the perfect honeymoon getaway. The food at the hotel was also spectacular, we were sad we couldn't try everything on the menu! I highly recommend this hotel.
