I had the pleasure to stay at this property for a night. Right from the time of the booking confirmation, to my arrival, checkout and even after - the staff were warm, hospitable and polite. The rooms are beautiful, providing complete privacy and peace of mind. The outdoor pool is beautiful, and there is direct access to the beach area. I also experienced the spa, which is in a beautiful location. My therapist made sure I was completely relaxed and worked on all the problem areas. I would gladly come back for another stay, and recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing stay ! Read less
