By default you had to book us at Villa Espanhola, what a gem - Linda was welcoming, the room was great what a good stopover. We spent the afternoon swimming in the lake, felt like Mauritius the weather perfect. Communal kitchen was well kitted out. Went to dinner up the road at Aquarius, not to be recommended was expensive with no atmosphere.

Thank you Sue and UP AND GO you come highly recommended for any future bookings for us

Villa Espanhola was a refreshing stop on our way to Barra. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Nice bathrooms en-suite and of course working aircon. Staff was very friendly. The beach was literally a minute’s walk out the property. We stayed in the 2 bedroom which had a full kitchen. The only fault I could give is when the electricity went off we had no form of light. No torch etc is made available in the rooms and my bedroom door did not close without me locking it from the inside.
