I loved my stay at Mount Cinnamon and was really impressed with the quality of accommodation provided. The villas are a few minutes' walk from the beach, but don't let this put you off as the views from the balconies are well worth it and buggies are on hand if preferred and can be called using the mobile phone that's provided in your villa. The colourful accommodations are quirky and fun with plenty of extras such as Bose sound systems, washer/dryers and SMEG fridges throughout - standards are very high. The resort can even arrange for takeaway pizzas to be delivered if you'd rather have a night in with family and friends.
Down on the beach, Savvy's Beach Bar is a great place to relax and unwind whilst enjoying the watersports on offer or if preferred just sit back, relax and enjoy a cocktail or two. There is a small spa and a gym if you do want to get active, and the restaurant at the Club House serves a delicious breakfast. I loved the beach BBQ with great food, steel pan and dancing around the bonfire - great fun, and definitely recommended. If you are celebrating a special occasion the resort can even provide a private beach dinner just for you - very romantic! The staff were really friendly and went out of their way to make you feel welcome and relaxed.
Perfect for families and groups of friends looking for a good base offering a home from home feel, I would love to return one day and highly recommend Mount Cinnamon!
