It's so hard to know where to begin... The place is simply perfect. The five villas all have great views and modern amenities that aren't always available at resorts as secluded as these. The beach was incredible. It was clean, quiet, and the only other people we saw were the ones who stayed at the resort. Man of war beach was equally impressive and even more isolated and pristine.
We also really enjoyed the food. Everything was first class from the lobster to the porterhouse. They also had fantastic desserts and pizzas as well. Despite the lack of available food outside the resort, I assure you the food does not disappoint and is reasonably priced. This was one thing we were uncertain about, and it did not disappoint. Additionally, the drinks were strong ;) so be ready for that!
I would also like to add that Frank and Gabi and their staff make the trip as memorable as anything. They are so fun and friendly and great to be around. They have succeeded in creating a fun and unique atmosphere and they are fun to be around. They also work hard to make sure they accommodate their guests with anything one might need. Our first night, they provided a cake for one of the couples anniversary celebrations - a great example of the personal touch. I hope to return to have a beer with them both. Each night, they also have time for everyone to enjoy drinks with the other guests and we had a great time meeting new friends from England, Minnesota, and Switzerland.
We also went to a local place one night for dinner, local music, and dancing and it was definitely a blast. It was another great part of our trip.
All that said, if you are looking for some place private to unplug with a wonderful atmosphere, private beaches, and wonderful hosts, this is the place. I recommend it to anyone and make sure you book early.
Thanks Frank, Gabi, and the rest of the staff for a fantastic vacatin!
