Loved our stay at Villa Franca. We were upgraded to an ocean view room as we were there in the off-season and hotel was not full. Room had a balcony with a spectacular view. Jacuzzi in the bathroom was really nice after long day of walking around. Noticed a few imperfections (some of the grouting in the bathroom could have been cleaner) but for the most part room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast area (and restaurant but we didnt eat here) also had beautiful views. Staff was friendly and helpful. It was too cold for swimming in March but we did enjoy the view from the pool area/roof deck. Location on the top of the hill provides great views and quiet setting but be prepared for lots of walking (up and down stairs or hill) to get to the beach and shopping. I think they have a shuttle that goes up and down to the beach but dont think it was running in March. Off season was a great time to visit as not at all crowded and gives you the feeling that you have the place to yourselves (more or less). Downside being that it did get chilly and very windy and many (but not all) stores/restaurants are closed. We took the SITA bus to get here rather than private car and while the bus stop is pretty close, it is not obvious where to go to find the hotel. Getting luggage to and from the bus stop is not an easy feat! Overall, we hated to leave and really hope to be back someday!
