We stayed here for four nights with our two children aged 6 and 3. It was the luxury accommodation part of our trip and it lived up to its reputation. The location on the beach is fantastic, but it is The Villa itself that is totally beautiful. As others have said, it feels more like the rambling house it once was than a hotel. Our room was fine for all of us, (we had a single bed added in which the children shared) with a lovely big balcony and we were far away enough from other guests that we didn't disturb them or vice versa. Having so many separate lounge areas in the hotel means that you can find your own (beautiful) space. Although it seems more like a couples paradise, the children were made very welcome and loved having the beautiful grounds to run around in, as well as the beach and the pool.
Food was fantastic and we ate at the hotel more than we planned for this reason. We visited Club Villa next door for a few meals (which we had considered originally but it was hosting a wedding so not available) and while also lovely with good food we were totally satisfied we'd made the right choice staying at The Villa. The only slight downside was the front desk, not exactly the warmest welcome, however most of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would and have highly recommend.
