Simply amazing
This hotel is absolutely amazing! We booked at the last minute and ended up booking an extra villa because we were blown away by how beautiful and comfortable they are. The grounds are so lovely, the ocean view is incredible, and we had several delicious meals at Paprika. Above all, the staff was beyond amazing. Everyone was so friendly and went the extra mile to make our stay unforgettable. We wanted to stay longer but unfortunately had to leave!

We stayed 6 nights in the honeymoon suite at this beautiful resort. This beautiful, comfortable and spacious cottage has a private pool that is very nice, and it is just around the corner from the amazing onsite restaurant Paprika, yet far enough away from the 'community' pool to be quiet. The grounds are large and cottages are spaced quite well. The staff was the absolute highlight of our stay. They were so friendly and caring. From the moment we were picked up at the airport until our eventual drop off for departure, we saw so many kind smiles. We had all our meals at Paprika and every meal was very good. We very highly recommend staying at this property.

10/10 Exceptional

We initially booked 2 nights but extended for a 3rd night. This place is incredibly relaxing, lush and well maintained. We felt like we were the only guests in the resort, despite occasionally seeing others around the grounds. The staff were all very welcoming and attentive. If you love natural surroundings, this place is for you.

8/10 Very good

Very nice and quiet place, in a huge garden. The restaurant has a great view on the sea. The road to access is a very bumpy, but there is apparently a plan for improvement.
