We stayed here for 5 nights in a so-called Grove-House. The house was a four bedroom type with two of the bedrooms locked-down. So the shared spaces (living room, kitchen, patio) were generous.
The houses are beautifully designed, well layed-out and perfectly integrated into the existing Peppermint tree grove. The whole complex hasa lot of character and style, from the nice gardening to the interior design of the houses. Furniture is very modern and also appliances are of a very high standard and all in very good condition.
The beach access is perfect and swimming was a pleasure (not suitable for surfing or diving though).
IF there is anything to improve, then the following points:
For us as overseas visitors it was uncomfortable that the kitchen contains nearly no basic cooking items (e.g. salt+pepper, seasoning, napkins). If you do not byo you have to bring everything to make use of the nice kitchen and the great gas bbq.
Also for longer stays the other amenities and supplies (bath gel, shampoo, dishwasher tabs, washing powder) were not sufficient and have not been refilled.
The beautiful and very private garden could use some deckchairs to make full use of it.
To sum up: if some minor service items would be included in the price, the AQUA would be perfect (thus my poor service rating below). Overall definitely a place to come back to!
