A wonderful 5 weeks spent at Villa Marine. Could not have asked for a more relaxing and "chilled out " atmosphere. Peter our host was most helpful in all our requests.

If you are looking for a holiday that is not in the tourist rat race speak to Peter at Villa Marine. Great spot to just relax and so central if you want to go on tours. Just speak to Peter or the girls in the office. Definitely coming back.
