"Best villas-Sunset,we would recommend Nos 102-110."
"Choose Sunrise Villas - You will have access to the beach"
"Jacuzzi Beach Villa"
"Take fully inclusive, drinks are very expensive. If you like hearing the ocean waves, take the sunrise side!"
"Advice is to choose a ocean facing room. It’s fantastic. You can step out of your room on the the patio and walk a few steps onto the beach"
