Such an incredible stay at Villa Santa Teresa. We arrived to this absolute dream like villa on a private gated mountain top road surrounded by gardens. The estate and views took our breath away. You will feel almost like you’re staying in a private mansion of a good friend. Room was immaculate and the turndown service was perfect. The staff provided buttons so you always could reach someone for a cocktail or assistance. I can’t rave enough about it. We spent one of our days exploring the town but loved the hotel so much we decided to stay out and enjoy for our last day by the pool and having a beautiful dinner overlooking the mountain and ocean. It’s a truly magical experience and one that my husband and I will remember forever. We would come back in a heartbeat! Don’t hesitate, just book :)

Tremendous views. My biggest complaint was that they don’t go out of the way to clearly point out children are not allowed to stay at the hotel.
