Our stay here was short but great. It was really nice having a little pool to ourselves. The property feels like you are in a tropical paradise with all of the trees and birds chirping. There was even a horse and a few goats roaming around. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. We had some water issues and air issues, and they came right up and everything worked fine. We had to leave very early to get to the airport and they got us there and made the transfer very easy. Even offered to pack us up a little breakfast for the road. We would definitely stay there again.

The super nice staff really tried to make things right. The first cottage had standing water in bathroom that turned out to be a broken pipe. The second cottage smelled strongly of mold/mildew. The toilet stopped working in the third room, at which time we decided to try a new place to stay. Seems like the entire place could use a significant overhaul / updating and then it will be a lovely location to stay.
