Pros: Privacy of being in a villa with own pool
Cons: No other activities in the establishment for children
Location: Tranquil
Facilities: Modern; Service: Outstanding; Cleanliness: Spotless; This is a good venue if you just want to stay in a luxurious self contained villa and just chill out. Use as a base to outdoor exploits elsewhere
