We stayed here for Easter and it's a brilliant location to chill and watch the world go by!
We were in Villa 4, right on the beach, with its own private pool and built in jacuzzi which was kept immaculately clean daily. The villa was also cleaned most days and the sheets and towels changed regularly. The owners lived on site and couldn't do enough to help including preparing a meal one evening.
What we loved most was that apart from visits to nearby supermarket or bakery, you could be shoeless! A few steps from the villa to the beach and then in either direction after a short wander dipping your toes in the water, there were restaurants with local staff and families to freshly prepare an amazing variety of delicious meals which we ate looking out towards the sea. No one in the family had any tummy upsets and the 6 year olds were well catered for.
As you walked to lunch you could book your afternoon massage , an hour for £10 and enjoy being expertly pummelled later in the day.
There are mosquitoes around as expected but the grounds were sprayed weekly and mosquito rings were lit every evening at dusk on the patio area.
Don't even think about needing loads of clothes, really casual shorts and tshirts, light dresses and if you leave any washing out for the cleaners it's back cleaned and ironed within the day for a pittance!
There were only two reasons for not giving this an amazing 5 stars. The first was that the sunbeds in the garden were dilapidated and in need of replacement desperately. The second was that we struggled with the bedroom arrangements.
There are 3 double bed/ ensuite bedrooms that all had exterior doors only. The two upstairs were reached by external stone stairs. None opened onto the lounge or patio. We travelled as grandparents, parents and two 6 year olds so it wasn't possible to put the kids to bed in their own room and sit outside at all. We ended up having one of the children in with each pair of adults and a bedroom that wasn't used at all. Ideal for 3 separate couples or older children but not for our family configuration .
Having said that, we had a brilliant 2 weeks we would go back tomorrow with friends or when the kids were older, we loved the relaxed atmosphere and the beach on the doorstep!
