    It’s hard to review this amazing place without it sounding like a string of cliches. But it is truly amazing from every angle. As a solo traveler places like these can make you feel a little weird - it’s so romantic and honeymooney. But at no point did the friendly and attentive staff make me feel weird being alone, nor did they try to befriend me and interrupt my “me” time which I really appreciated. It was the little touches to detail that made it so relaxing. They remembered quickly that I prefer sparking water to still water, and that’s what I was offered at every meal without having to ask for it. And my post-dinner sambuca was brought to my room, again without me having to ask for it. The villas are beautiful, each with their own little pool, amazing view and the biggest most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. If I knew where they bought their pillows I would order some immediately. No review would be complete without mentioning the food. There is a small kitchen farm at the back and much of the fresh produce comes from there. It’s also a great place to visit - there’s a cute goat and as of June 2021 a baby cow. The food is wonderful - I had fresh lobster, crab, giant shrimp every night. And amazing avocado salads. The lobster ravioli served one night was possibly the best meal I have ever had. For those of you looking at the price…Yes, it’s not cheap, and was kind of out of my price range. But I wanted to spoil myself and don’t regret a single penny I spent. In fa

  • 8.0.Very good

    Very friendly and helpful staff and lovely rooms and outlook. Bar/lounge was sterile and not very conducive to spending much time there. Swimming pool was too small and too shallow for 50% of its length. Room plunge pools could not be controlled by guests, only by staff rummaging in adjacent bushes. Limited supply of premium spirits and wine. Desserts and soups all very similar and often food delivered did not appear to match menu description.
