We stayed for 12 days in the family villa with our 2 teenage daughters. Having read a few negative comments before we went I was a bit concerned as to what we would find. It is fair to say that some of the décor is a little dated compared to some "luxury" places we have stayed - apparently there a plans for an update. This however is completely irrelevant as The Rocks sit in one of the best spots on the island with amazing views out to see and beautiful sunsets. The taxi service and restaurant deliveries are brilliant if like us you sometimes just want to spend an evening relaxing at the villa. The food costs are very good value and the service is quick. There have also been comments with regards the cost. The Villas are a bit pricey but you do get what you pay for and having Chloe and Janine on hand for help and advice is definitely worth the extra cost. Their advice as to beaches and restaurants was always spot on. This kind of info ensure that you can make the best use of your time on the island. We felt totally spoilt and even had our mountain of cases carried up the multitude of steps to our villa for us. Walk down to the beach no problem -definitely worth paying the £4 taxi to get back up though!
