The villa was amazing and having the pool outside was wonderful. We had so much space and everything was catered for quickly by the staff. We had some issues in our room when we arrived but they were fixed by a team of workers very quickly. Our room was cleaned and refreshed multiple times a day with bottomless bottled water which made everything a lot easier. Breakfast was good and had many choices. The hotel was very private and quiet. While there was a pool bar it was not open for drinks just the complimentary afternoon tea (which was great as a small late lunch) and the restaurant was only open for breakfast which was disappointing although many other choices are a short stroll away.
If you like a little bit of a crowd and atmosphere this is not the place for you, there is a lot of space and even though all villas were full it felt 'empty'. I would also be mindful if you are a lighter sleeper as prayers start at 4.30am everyday and were very loud. While during the day they were lovely in the background, we were not able to sleep through them and they continued for around 20 minutes at a time.
Overall a wonderful location, a great hotel and we loved our holiday.
