5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Excellent accommodation up in the treetops
The rooms are actually little apartments in a lush tropical paradise really close to the sea. They are spacious, clean and upon arrival come with a very nice welcome juice. The owner is lovely and also provides an excellent English breakfast for a small additional charge.

Stayed for two nights, beautiful surroundings, perfect layout literally had everything you could need or want in terms of amenities. Only thing was slow WiFi and about 4 TV channels but that's no big deal.

Friendly owners. The villa is very well equipped. Great bed, nice bathroom, induction hob, fridge, water pot (10 l), terrace in exotic tropical style. There are mosquito repellents (candles, gel repellent) for use. The villa is located in a tropical forest (palm trees, bamboos, bananas, etc.).
