The resort was clean and the room was spacious. I paid for the upgrade to ocean view and am glad I did that. We had a large balcony (on 2nd floor) that provided shade and a nice breeze. Restaurant was also good and I enjoyed the pizza. The pools were small and looked “tired”. Could use a refresh. The beach cabanas were nice though and we used those. Paid some young boys to navigate the urchins at low tide out to the reef. It was fun to do!

What a lovely, romantic stay!
Villa Kiva is a fantastic place to stay. It's very lovely and has all the services you need for a very relaxing stay! We really enjoyed the two swimming pools and the view from our balcony and a wonderful breakfast.
