Beyond the gates are the busy-ness and traffic gridlock of coastal resorts. Best to stay in the oasis, but it means there is not much else to do. It is expensive. Do not even think of adding to your bill with, say, a luxurious massage, or you will be bankrupted!
This is a stunning place. Formerly John Paul Getty's house by the sea, in a historic spot on the coast. So long as you stay in the house and look out to sea, use the pool or swim in the fabulous sea, you will have a fabulous time. Don't try to go anywhere else! It is a wonderful oasis. But I would recommend simply a wonderful short stay, not a lengthy period. Drink the wonderful place in, and make the most of what it offers. It is very very beautiful.
