Simple Paradise

We had a wonderful 5 day visit to the resort, staying in a beachfront villa with a plunge pool. The room was gorgeous, with some lovely personal touches so it feels boutique. We did not do very much so we had total relaxation, and this location is perfect for that. Staff were so lovely and the food great. I really had to pinch myself a few times as it truly felt like an easy, relaxed and simple paradise TripAdvisor.com
