Great place to unwind from the world. Could be improved if there was a bar or restaurant either on the premises or very close.

The owners and staff couldn’t have been any more helpful and friendly. The villas have quality bicycles, paddle boards, and kayaks that are free to use and plentiful. We will be back!

Relaxing stay at sea change
Had a lovely stay at sea change villas. They were very accommodating on our final day when they could not provide a late check-out. The villa itself was very comfortable and well equipped, and the facilities available made the stay very relaxing and easy.

Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service
Having your own private pool was wonderful in the 30 degree plus temperatures. Other than the roosters, this is a very quiet and peaceful location with good beach access. Please note, however, that if you are staying in the Lagoon View Executive Villas that claim "you can enjoy watching the breaking of the waves on the reef from the front deck" that actually due to palm trees the view is VERY limited. The basement game room was also very musty, probably due to the significant amount of rain they had before we arrived. We also killed 6 cockroaches during our stay so make sure you are okay with that too. Some advertisements for this place also indicated free wifi - this isn't true and you will need to pay for it. We would still recommend this resort as compared to many others found on the island.
