We've just had an amazing two weeks in the villa with four friends. We are all Sandal select members and there are only a few of their resorts that we haven't tried but this is the best!
It isn''t cheap to stay but if you want quality, attentive service and food then look no further. The villa was very clean, well stocked with beverages, snacks and music. We used the hotel resturant facilities most of the time and couldn't find fault with any of the food or service. Service at breakfast was a little slow but the view from the terrace more than made up for this. The villa chef prepared dinner on two evenings for us all and everything from planning the menu with us to the actual meal was perfect. The only downside of the villa was the lounge didn't have any air conditioning and the bathrooms in the three bedrooms are a little dated. However when you consider the amount of time we spent in these areas it's a minor issue!
It was our first experience of 'butler service' and we were a little unsure of how it would work. There are three that we would recommend without a doubt, so if you are staying in the hotel ask for Shelly and Jermaine and if staying at the villa, Rochester wont disappoint you! All were attentive but not intrusive and soon got to know our personal likings.
To sum up, we loved it so much we booked to go back for two weeks next year!
