Beautiful well- equipped villa. Very nice swimming pool nearby the house. Quiet peaceful. Shops nearby. Island tour with private driver recommended for a first visit to this beautiful island. We loved it. Very pleasant garden. Excellent self-catering formula.
the property is very well situated on the site. it has all mod cons and everything you need for a home from home stay. the hotel itself is lovely and staff are very helpful. the spa is worth a visit but don’t pay the full price as every few days the staff come to the swimming pools to ask if you want a treatment usually with a 50% discount. i had the balinese massage and rather than 110 euro’s it cost 45 euros and well worth it for an 80 minute massage. if you can, ask for Anita as she was fab doing the massage.
if self catering there is a buffet style restaurant across the road from the hotel and also a place for pizza. otherwise you can go into santa maria where there is an abundance of restaurants with a variety of price ranges. beware as some can be expensive and not very good value for money. we found a gem at the end of our holiday called Cafe de Mar where the portions are generous and it is excellent value for money.
we also went on a TUI trip for half a day. it was a 4x4 jeep safari around the island finishing off at the salt lakes. well worth it and going to the salt lakes and going in them was a good finale to the tour.
weather was lovely and the breeze is rather welcoming. a good alternative to the caribbean and we will definitely be returning.
