Excellent accommodation. The villas are spacious and very well equipped. The large,well furnished verandah is a joy - formal dining table, sofas, coffee table plus a wonderful view. Patio area has comfortable loungers, a BBQ, table,chairs,parasol and infinity pool.
Bedrooms all en suite are very spacious with gorgeous beds, the two upstairs having a small terrace with spectacular views across the bay.
The kitchen is extremely well equipped, plenty of crockery,cooking equipment,utensils,glassware etc. Plenty of gadgets so if cooking is your thing it's not a problem here - unlike many !
Gardens beautifully maintained.
Staff are always pleasant and quick to resolve any problems you may have. Housekeeping 9 - 2 daily if required. Only two of us so twice a week totally adequate, Cynthia did an excellent job, linen and towels changed and villa spotless on our return.

Happy hour at the clubhouse is informal and a good way to meet people at sunset. They make e mean rum punch !

The only gripes we had ? Firstly, the patio area has no lighting apart from the pool lights which means using the BBQ in the evening is rather hit and miss. We had intended to invite a crowd for dinner but would have been impractical we felt unless all the cooking was done in the kitchen. Secondly, the restaurant. Not impressed. Only ate there once, our starter - tomato,spinach and mozarella tart- was a very strange concoction. Very greasy and overcooked, no pastry in sight ! Both had the lobster which was sweet and well cooked but came with pasta in an indeterminate sauce - did nothing for the lobster or us !

That said the positives far outweighed the negatives. We have no hesitation in recommending these villas and will definitely return.
