Jessica Cator (Staff)

This is wonderful property, carefully designed to blend in with its surroundings. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff will make sure you have everything you need. I particularly enjoyed the fact that all the rooms were spread out, giving every guest their own privacy and space. Do bear in mind, however, that the only rooms with air conditioning are the Villas. This does not necessarily matter as there is always a nice breeze coming off the sea, but it is worth noting.
