My girlfriend and I booked in here to be close to another resort in the area where we were attending a wedding. The other resort is long established and probably has a 5 star rating. However, Svea's compared favourably or better it in almost every aspect at a much lower cost, with a 5 star service throughout our stay. We stayed in the first floor studio which was absolutely excellent. All the equipment in the room was brand new and it even had it's own washing machine and small kitchenette which were very handy. We were provided with slippers and numerous toiletries which were a very welcome addition. Our air con unit was under maintenance at the time we stayed and without any mention of it from us, James the owner, reduced the overall price, included breakfast for us and transferred us to the Deluxe Double for our final night. James himself is an absolute gentlemen. He welcomed us with a lovely tea, gave us a phone to keep in touch with him while we stayed, took us out to lunch, gave us a tour of the local area and dropped us to nearby locations in his 1967 baby blue VW Beetle! His staff are excellent and keep the property spotless, going above and beyond to make you feel welcome and preparing delicious breakfasts. As though all the above was not enough, the property has a beautiful infinity pool, stunning views over the bay and a simple gym that caters for most requirements. The phrase 'too good to be true' gets thrown around, but this place really is just that. We have been travelling for 6 months on this trip through the USA, South America, NZ, Australia and SE Asia and have travelled fairly extensively in Europe and this is hands down the nicest place we've stayed, 11 out of 10!
