Walk out from villa straight onto a beach!

Pros: As above plus managers Andrew and Belinda would magically appear when needed but invisible when not. Perfect place to de-stress and unwind.
Cons: Nothing.
Villas clean, VERY private, private pool, right on the beach, excellent staff. Awesome.

Pros: Stunning accommodation, fantastic lagoon, kayaks included, walk to bars & restaurants. Heaven!
Cons: You can't really swim off the beach as it's too shallow but you don't have to walk or kayak very far to find somewhere you can swim.
Location: Tranquil
Facilities: Top of the line; Value: Fair price; Cleanliness: Spotless; The beachside villa has it's own access to the beach and we found it great, didn't matter that we weren't beachfront.
