    'Our 6 days at Constance Halaveli...could not have been any better. We were so lucky with the weather - clear blue skies and high temperatures every day... The water villa was wonderful, the food in all of the restaurants superb, and the staff just so friendly and obliging. They made special efforts on our anniversary, with prosecco, a cake, rose petals on the bed and in the bath(!), and a special table set up for us when we went to dinner that night. We felt very spoilt. Sadly it is now over...but we have many more memories to add to our other ‘bushbaby adventures’.' Karen L (September 2016)
