Everyone, and I mean everyone from this organization is fantastic. They clearly focus on providing a luxurious experience to the customer. In my case, Jennifer, Emma and Bruce all had this in common and went above and beyond in every way, our chef on the island was a gentlemen named Yves and he is the equivalent and having your personal Michelin star chef....just incredible. The service throughout the organization is beyond reproach and leaves nothing more to desire. The villa (Encore) is absolutely gorgeous and accommodating.
