The service at this resort was top-notch. Staff were friendly, gave us personalized attention and helpful. The rooms were fabulous. The villa with a private pool, separate rooms and a large living-dining-kitchen area were great for all of us. Our kids got up in the morning and jumped right in the pool. We liked being away from the noisy, crowded... More

We booked a two bedroom villa and on arrival were told we had been upgraded to a three bedroom villa but we were not allowed to use the third bedroom and the door had been locked.

We spent 10 days, relaxing with friends, great set up, accommodations are great for groups & families having separate pavilions. Spent many afternoons in our private pool. The facilities are fantastic, and all of the staff were very friendly and accommodating to our requests. Would highly recommend. We will definitely return for another visit.
