From our transportation from the airport to the villa, to our greeting from the villa staff, to the meals and accommodations, we felt very well taken care of for the duration of our visit. The villa was absolutely beautiful, and just as pictured. Whether we were relaxing by the pool, taking the kayaks out for a spin in the water, or heading out for an excursion, the staff took care of our every need. Kim's food is AMAZING, and Richie was such a sweet and attentive bartender/butler. Our rooms were impeccably clean each morning, and cooled down with air conditioning every evening. We did not want for a single thing! We would highly recommend this villa/vacation to anyone. The previous reviews are correct that there is significant highway noise, but it is only noticeable at night while sleeping. If you come prepared, and know that this literally the ONLY potential drawback in this villa, you will be all set!

The staff, especially Danny made the vacation extra special by going the extra mile. The house is dated in certain areas especially the bathrooms but this wasn't a big deal since 90% of your time is spent outdoors. Beautiful beach and child friendly. Great place for a vacation with family and friends. Be back soon.
