    Excellent hotel

    Stayed in a water with private pool. Service was incredible, the staff could not have been more friendly. I would absolutely go back and recommend to others. We were sad to leave. The only minor negative would be the condition of the room, the furniture was a little worn but I think they are upgrading the rooms currently. On our first day we heard a lot of noise from a room they were upgrading and they immediately moved us to another villa. We then had an excellent surprise of champagne on the beach-such a nice touch and something we will remember for a long time. Also, the food at all the restaurants was delicious.
