Stayed here for two weeks during the virus crisis and it was a perfect place to be...very safe and secluded. I enjoyed the food, the staff was wonderful and my room was perfect. I am shocked that some people complained about the service, never once did I have an issue. Yes, the hill is an issue, but the transportation by truck is easy and I never had to wait more than a few minutes for one to arrive. I would highly recommend this place. I would also recommend that you rent a scooter in town and take a ride around the island...the other beaches were wonderful and the people very friendly. Go see Tom down on the beach and rent the scooter there.

Wow. Could not rate this hotel more highly. I’ve stayed at 6* hotels before and nothing compares to this place. It was honestly like stepping into a fairy tale film. Despite all the corona madness, the staff made everyone feel completely at ease. We felt totally self and secure there. The rooms are incredible- the buffet breakfast was out of this world. They also had good promotions on - eg 30% off dinners and happy hours. Can not wait to come back!!!
