While I am not rich, I have travelled extensively around the world including to some of the most beautiful islands. I have to say that while this is not the most expensive or biggest home I have stayed in it is one of the best. Where do I start. First, the villa is located close to town, beach and the local restaurants. Walking from the villa to the beach is less than 10 minutes and is a quick and scenic trip because you must pass through town to get to the beach. It's also great exercise because the walk back to the villa from the beach is mostly uphill. Not a problem for me since I am a New Yorker and I walk a lot. If you can't hack walking back then there is a 24 hour taxi service that will take you back to the villa in 2 minutes. The villa is in a gated development with friendly security guards who stroll the premises and is located close to the main security gate which is the only way in and out of the development (which is huge) as far as I could tell. When you walk up the stairs to the villa you immediately see the huge pool and the villa is set back off the street which offers a lot of privacy. The pool is fully tiled in white and the crystal clear water is very inviting. The pool deck is beautiful and bright and I spent a lot of time on the deck because the sun hits the deck for most of the day. The weather was in the 80's for most of our stay and sunny but not too hot. It did rain a couple of the days while I was there as it was nearing the end of the rainy season but never for long and bugs did not seem to be a problem after the rain stopped (but I kept a bottle of Off handy just in case). We did order the chef while there and she was fantastic. Her fish and beans, pancakes and eggs, shrimp pasta and pepper steak are awesome. She also surprised us with a delicious chocolate cake since we were celebrating a birthday which was a kind gesture. Like the chef, the rest of the maids and staff were very helpful and friendly. The staff, villa, development and location are well-deserving of 5 stars and I would recommend this villa to even my most demanding friends.
