First the good. The resort is beautifully decorated and despite having a large number of villas does not give you the impression of being overly busy. It occupies a whole bay and is a lovely setting.
Now the problems: the service is patchy. Sometimes very charming and warm, but at others just nowhere near 500 dollars a night. We had to ask repeatedly to get a kettle to prepare milk for our baby, it took us over 24 hours to get this simple request - and then it did not work and we had had to get another.
The real problem is the cost though. An average burger and a bowl of pasta with chilli and a bit of Parmesan with three little bottles of red stripe is over eighty dollars. An ok beach barbecue with a terrible bottle of wine is 250! That is literally Michellin starred prices and the food while not bad is pretty basic. I don't mind paying for quality, but the cost really overshadowed the holiday for me. Real shame felt a bit greedy. Oh and the ground floor rooms are ten feet off the ground. Which is not great when your toddler can easily get through the gaps in the railings.
