The location and views were excellent. The property was well maintained with gorgeous overlooks of the area. The location was great as well, very close to amazing beaches and waterfalls and many more activities. The villas were spacious and accommodating. Also, the location was private. The on-site restaurant and staff were accommodating and provided great service. The food and drinks were excellent. The entire place is a wonderful place to start for an extended stay, would definitely book again if going back to the area
