    Beautiful hotel at a nice location. Staff was really friendly and helpful. The hotel offers "tea time" at 4pm, which was really cute. They don't have twin bed even though it says it on Expedia and the hotel's website, so if you're not staying with a loved one, just remember that you will be sharing a bed. My only complaint was the stray cat that was constantly at the outdoor lounge area and at the dinner tables at night. She didn't jump on the tables but it wasn't too pleasant to have a cat staring at you will you tried to eat.

    The staff is welcoming and very attentive. We were greeted with welcome drinks, ice cream on the beach, cold towels while sunbathing. The staff was very helpful recommending restaurants for dinner and arranging transportation. Their hospitality was warm, inviting and most appreciated

    Nice hotel with friendly staff. Excellent bar staff and beach attendant. Clean rooms. Very uncomfortable mattress. King mattress (single headboard affixed to wall) was really two worn twin mattesses pushed together with no attempt to “hide” the seam. Odd that no front desk so hard to find an “ambassador” when needed.

    The House was absolutely wonderful. The beach was gorgeous, the staff outstanding, particularly Christopher, Teddy and Ricardo. So many lovely touches like the champagne breakfast, the beach service and the afternoon tea. We can’t wait to return.
