The hotel is very beautiful, the villas are an amazing option if you're looking to spend a peaceful vacation, in case you want to enjoy the facilities and see people, the beach club is a great option. The staff is very friendly, Oscar, the chef at Saffron was vey kind to us. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and our anniversary and we received some treats from the staff, everyone was very friendly and while the hotel is on the expensive side it was totally worth it.

Our villa was huge (though expensive), heated private pool. The showers could use some work. Terrible water pressure and the door was falling off our master shower. Unfortunately while paying 2k a night we had to endure construction that started every night at 9.pm and went well past midnight. Another night at 9:45 a worker entered our villa without calling or knocking. We were in bed with our kids and it was really scary. We told the hotel about both and they took $300 off our bill (of over 15k…I mean, thanks I guess?). Otherwise the staff was great, massages were amazing, loved the buffet, pool by beach was beautiful though wish there were more shady spots and real lounge chairs.
