The views were breathtaking. I really liked the way luxury retreats kept me informed along the way and the concierge communication was outstanding. Our maid service was very nice and very thorough. Her name was Pamela we all liked her. She was very friendly.

It was the perfect vacation experience for our family of 11. JP and Donna took such good care of us. The food was delicious and the villa was very clean. The location was beautiful. Hopefully we will be able to return.
