I think thr place pays much attention to detail. It is definitely run by people with very good taste. The experience was exquisite from beginning to end! We would certainly come back (or hope to come back! :)...)

This is probably the best hotel I have ever been to! From the setting, to the decoration, to the location, the customer service, the external lounge bar with live DJ overseeing the bay, the rooms.... just PERFECT! It is an experience by itself! The hotels in the same street can definitely not compete with it. Will be dreaming of coming...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Vila d'este. We paid a bit more and took a Seaview room (with little plunge pool) - room 14 - and the views were breathtaking (see pix of sunset and sunrise). The room was large, very clean and the linen super thick and comfy. Food and service was great - very simple and understated...

The restaurant, terrace and common places are beautiful to spend leisure time with the wonderful view of the ocean in front. The staff is polite and correct. The two things that disappointed me...
