Wow! This place is just beautiful. There are flowers everywhere. The views and grounds are stunning. The private beach is nice, but the hot tub wasn’t in operation there. The stonework on property with the rich landscaping sets it apart. There were only a few people here when we stayed so it was almost like having it as a private villa. The views from the villa were great, and even the jetted tub and bathroom had the same view.

The views were absolutely amazing! The staff was friendly and helpful. I’ve never seen someone deep clean a room daily, which included changing bed sheets daily too. I didn’t even have to ask for towels. I am definitely going to stay here again on my next visit to back.

Excellent! Second time I stayed here. The first time was at the castle and this time at the villas on the opposite side. Very peaceful. The fellows that work at the pool and restaurant are wonderful. Very friendly and being I am an amateur photographer, they were quick to get my attention as to the best spots to find beautiful birds and other creatures around the grounds. And yes, I will stay again!
