The best place for couples who would like to relax and enjoy a quite life away from the city. The scenic, awesome villas, the breeze and hospitality of the staffs made us more comfortable and had a great days to enjoy a short holiday away from noise of the city. I commend the front desk for welcoming us and give us the good room/ villa spot to enjoy our stay. Kudos to all room food service staffs, house keeping and the drivers for taking us around the hotel. I want to thank our servers in Basilico restaurants for give us a good service for my husband birthday. He was so happy, we enjoy the foods they serve and the wine they recommend to him. It was a fantastic celebration. Definitely we will visit again the hotel and maybe stay more days. Thank you!! Read less

This is the second time we visit this lovely hotel with splendid view & beautiful beach. This time we were upgraded to a villa & it was spacious & its location next to the pool made it easier for us since we had two infants with us. However, twice we had to wait for more than an hour for the process of paying & checking in... I have never come across slow people as those on the reception desk.... it was a hassle for them to pay by debit & not by a credit card in both occasions... I don’t know why!! Moreover we had breakfast @ Cinamon Resturant & the cutlery & the mugs were dirty.. unbelievable. I don’t think I want to repeat it, though it’s a nice place. Iman Read less
