"This is the second time we have come to stay at Villa Castellamonte. We visited in 2011 and loved it so much, we came back again this year. We were 5 couples with a total of 9 kids - aged 5 - 11. Everybody had an amazing time. First, the home is spectacular. It sits on a quiet part of the island with a private beach and gorgeous views. You can choose to stay at the home and relax or go and explore the gorgeous beaches and amenities the area has to offer. The bedrooms with en-suite baths and outdoor space accommodate a large group very comfortably. The staff is wonderful. From 3 meals a day, and some snacks and drinks (smoothies for kids) all day / night long, you are not wanting for a thing. It was depressing to come home and have to do things for ourselves after being pampered for a week by Felix and Amy! This ended up being an incredibly fun and relaxing vacation and we would come back again in a second. We highly recommend Villa Castellamonte!"

"My husband and I got married here in 2005 and loved it so much that we came back for our 10th anniversary. Both times, 10-14 people stayed in the villa with us. The villa is so expansive that it easily houses a big group without feeling cramped. We loved our group meals and everyone was blown away by the food. The staff was fantastic and made us fabulous cocktails all day and night. There's plenty to do around the villa, including lazing in the pool or playing pool, ping pong, etc. We also took nice walks into town along the coast and down to the beach. The beach bonfires were awesome, especially since the staff brings the bar down too! One night, we had a dance party with the staff and we also had a couple karaoke parties. The staff helped us arrange day trips and transportation, making everything so easy. We loved Monkey Jungle! One of our well-traveled guests said it was the best vacation he had ever had! "

"Absolutely beautiful! Felt like we were in a dream! The rooks are spacious and clean. The house is huge! There are so much to do: swim, ping pong, pool, and shuffleboard. There are speakers to hear music throughout the house and outside and volleyball net in the pool. It's only a quick walk to the beach and the town. There are couple different beach entries to get to one below the house and one right down the road. They offer amazing services - Felix is the best! He is so helpful along with Ruperto and Yamile.They were wonderful to us and made sure we always had everything we needed. So much fun to do bonfire at the beach or BBQ outside. The chef was amazing and the food was outstanding. Everything tasted amazing and the presentation was wonderful. It is a 5 star experience. I hope to be back soon. Thanks Jason Michelle and Sam! "
