A villa stay”
+ wide rooms with sufficient beds good for family - the only coffee shop/restaurant is always running out of ingredients that most dishes in the menu are not available. We arrived on a Sunday noon and hoped to have some afternoon snacks but we were told they don't have delivery yet. Monday breakfast was on a "diet" serving as they had to balance what's left for all the guests. By Monday evening, there was still no replenishment of their inventory. Best to have a transportation and eat outside their resort.

DO NOT MAKE A RESERVATION IF YOU VALUE YOUR PRIVACY!!!!”
Here's a list of the things they DON'T tell you. - this bungalow sits at the SAME property as the owner. there's NO PRIVACY as he's always outdoors and watching you. - the main door has nothing covering the glass so they could look into the room at any given time. - the curtains are all flimsy, i felt like they were still watching - the main door has a faulty door knob and a lock. no deadbolts, nothing to make you feel safe. - the pool is private in a sense that you are the only ones using it at the time of the booking. - they make an inspection of the property at 8 PM to check if you are indeed just 4 people in the room (he forced his way into the room so that he could check if anyone was hiding in the bathroom) - it's a minute walk to the main road with NO lighting at night - transportation in the area if scarce at best, you're better of renting a car - at first glance, the place looks clean enough, but as you go through the room? grime on the floor, cobwebs on the walls. EW!
