I stayed at this resort for three nights a few weeks ago, and came away with the feeling that it's a nice, secluded resort on a very sleepy island. If you want to get away and relax, this is the place to go. The resort isn't perfect, but all in all I think it's a good value for your money (about $110 USD per night).
The villas are comfortable and well-sized, and the individual patios at each villa are fantastic. The villas also afford a certain degree of privacy, which was also appreciated. The pool is probably the best feature of the resort. It's a long, L-shaped infinity pool and it never seemed to be too crowded. Unfortunately, the beach wasn't too good and the staff recommended not swimming in the ocean, so we stayed at the pool most of the time.
The only complaint I have about this resort is that the service is pretty average. When I asked for certain things (water, cocktails, etc.) I eventually received them, but it was always slow and the staff was never proactive. Everyone was very kind, but it was just a bit frustrating. The food was pretty good too, although by the end of my vacation I was ready to not eat at the same restaurant for three meals a day.
The spa was pretty good too. I ended up getting a few massages which cost about $17 USD, not bad.
All in all, a good place for a nice, relaxing vacation to "get away from it all".
