When we picked this villa, we were a little wary since it has only 10 reviews on Trip Advisor. However, this villa far exceeded every expectation that we had! Read on ...
The villa has 4 floors - the ground floor is the living/dining area, with a fully functional kitchen and utility room. This common area is huge, and is perfect for meals and watching TV, etc.
The next two floors have bedrooms, each with its own plunge pool and bathroom. The bedrooms and bathrooms are HUGE - probably 800-1,000 sq. ft each. On the top floor (roof) is a bigger plunge pool, bar, dining area and beach chairs, overlooking the ocean. This place is perfect for evening drinks/dinner. You won't need to go to a bar or restaurant outside.
The staff: A+++++! The staff was amazing, friendly and helpful. They worked with us to plan our meals carefully, and around our crazy dive schedules. The chef (Miguel) was fantastic - he planned a couple of dinners on the roof top and carried all the food up 3 floors, and back down. The food was served meticulously, and made for an amazing experience.
Downsides: It is definitely close to a lot of loud bars, so be prepared to sleep with ear plugs if it bothers you. However, the upside of the location is that you are a stones throw from everything - bars, beach, shopping, etc. Unless this REALLY bothers you, I wouldn't worry about it at all.
Wish list: I wish the villa had a TV on the roof. We were in Mexico during the world cup, and that would have been perfect!
