I liked everything about the resort. Would definitely stay there again. We had someone in a wheelchair in our group and although some areas were difficult to access (while lift was under construction), the staff were very accommodating and helpful.

Loved the location and the size of the villa. The furniture was quite worn and dated. Not like the pics on the website at all. Kitchen wasn't as well stocked as could be. Suggestions would be to update a bit and add a decent frying pan or two, oven mitts in every suite and maybe some serving bowls? ...
