Close to perfect
I have been to a lot of nice places around the world, but this place has to be one of the most unique places I´ve stayed at. From the rooms and the view to the service and the facilities. The whole experience! They say it´s no such thing as perfect, but this has to be the closest. Thanks to the whole staff for making this stay wonderful. We will definitely come back!

Very Good8.0
Really nice resort, but the fact that many of the villas are depending on the pickup truck transportation makes it less attractive. .. unless you can get of the lower placed villas within walking distance to the beach. Service is top of the line and food is well prepared and served. wineceller is decent and fairly priced.
