We stayed for 3 nights after Christmas and felt like we were movie stars! The Villa's (we stayed in Villa 2) are stunning and everything is thought of - there's a DVD player and CD player in the rooms; complimentary beach bags; mozzie coyls etc. The outside bathrooms were glorious (when we build our house I want one of these!) and the sala was the perfect place for sundowners while playing a game of backgammon (they have a set in the rooms). The private pools are AWESOME, as are the views!
The staff were incredibly eager to help but possibly don't have the 5-star training to go with the 5-star digs.
There is a short (100 stairs) walk down to the beach which too is spectacular - little private beaches between massive boulders. We spent the mornings on the beach and then meandered up to our Villa. Evenings were spent down in the town which is very chilled and has a few good restaurant options as well as some bars, with fire dancers on the beach etc. The bay that View Point is in is very relaxed.
Definitely recommend as a honeymoon location!
