Beautiful location, we had an ocean view 2 bedroom villa and it was very nice and suited our family perfectly. I don’t think I would stay there again for a couple or reasons.
a. Found management and people who worked there very unfriendly. No one seemed happy with their jobs. Our Villa was 3P and our key said 3C. When I pointed this out, they said it didn’t matter. ??? so 3C key can open 3P… didn’t make sense to me – see item d, below. Could be the problem.
b. Prices were much higher than anywhere else and the quality of food and service did not warrant the higher prices.
c. They were adding on to the restaurant. Construction started at 6:30 a.m. and went until way after dark each night. I realize that the addition is a plus, but the time we stayed was considered peak season... why they chose this time to do this work, is beyond me.
d. Woke up after first night and my husband asked me how come I didn't lock the door. The chain was on but the door was ajar. I told him that I absolutely locked everything. Later that afternoon, we found out that the villa next to us was broken into during the night. The couple happened to wake up as the intruders were entering. The husband chased them out. I spent the next 2 nights with furniture barracading our doors at night.
The beach is beautiful and the location is ideal, but I will look for another place to stay on our next visit in June.
