We had a town house, which was roomy, very quiet and beautiful views. For me there wasn't a lot to do there, but to veg out and relax. We ate at the winery a few times just so we could sit and take in the views.

A lovely location, great facilities (especially the heated pool), even for non-golfers, and very friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed the views across to the beach and sea, and the amazing sunsets. The stars at night were awesome too. The units were well set-up, spotlessly clean and with lots of great extras like insect mesh on the doors and windows,... More

Fabulous golf course and resort. Played 18 holes without a cart........ a whole lot of walking! The course is stunning. Fantastic fairways, fast greens and beautiful views. Finished with a swim before dinner in the restaurant. The luxury studio room was extremely nice. Great day and night away. Really friendly staff.

I found the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious. The Villa we stayed in had a great view over the golf course.
