Great , clean and modern property . Needed tap repairs and not enough instructions for using the TV and cold showers as the hot water took a long time to come through. You really needed a hire car to go around the Islands and need to book tours before you arrive as they were always booked out.

Two night short stay
Stayed for two nights in November post wedding at a villa. Staff were all very nice, and upgraded us to the suite (2nd floor, closest to beach) which had a great view. Pool was big, all amenities clean and tidy. Personally I think it’s a bit expensive for the accomodation
