Nice cottage but a lot of issues with services, follow through , and management. Definitely not a 'boutique ' experience. The hot tub wasn't hot, jetted tub didn't work, water was brown and stinky for two days. No airport pick up service as promised, notified the day of arrival, and again on departure was not 'convenient' for manager/owner again to provide those services. After much back and forth, and explanations about how it was too inconvenient for management to provide services that were promised , contracted and paid for, they did apologize and refunded the cost of taxis. Overall impression was that manager did not want to be bothered to run the resort. And turns out local manager is the owner. Really left a bad taste overall and didn't make good business or service sense to us.
A fantastic small resort
Our group of 6 couples rented all 4 cottages at the Sea Orchard Retreat, and we had a great stay at this intimate beachfront resort. The pool area is wonderful with plenty of lounges and tables/chairs and we spent hours poolside tanning, playing cards, enjoying music, and eating some meals. The cottages are very modern and have a great layout with a king bedroom on one side and a queen or 2 twin bedroom on the other side, providing very good privacy for every couple. Each unit has a full kitchen and washer/dryer, enabling us to eat some meals in and also do some laundry. A nice audio/video setup allows you to watch TV via AppleTV, or play music throughout the cottage due to speakers in all of the rooms. The Wifi was strong, and cellphone service was adequate. This is a very private, quiet resort, allowing you to have a very relaxing experience or to be a bit rowdy without worrying about disturbing the neighbors. We arranged for massages one day that were done in a small cabana down by the beach, and this was an amazing, relaxing experience for the wives. There are also excellent amenities such as kayaks, snorkeling gear, water shoes, plenty of beach towels, etc. You are only a short walk to the Pappagallo Restaurant where we had a couple of fantastic dinners. I would absolutely recommend this resort for groups like ours, and also for smaller groups that may take 1-2 cottages.
