We made a reservation at this place and drive by it about 3 times. We went in looking for someone once, twice, on the third time we knocked on the door of the caretaker, who reluctantly let us in. She had no idea that we were arriving and had no appeared to have no reservation for us. ( we arrived... More

Pretty campy but clean, felt very safe and the people were quite pleasant. Maybe the negative reviews were about the lodge, but the cabin was fun! The water practically laps at your door. The grounds are beautifully landscaped (one tree by the water was so old and huge that I'm sure it watched the Spainards sail into harbor!) and well... More

The setting is very nice in a quiet bay, nice reef just a few meters from the centre and a good place for kids to do snorkelling…. The centre is a diving training centre and the accommodation is an afterthought to make some additional money and not set up with service provision in mind. You have to pay the full... More

It is fine as a place to hang out and relax....shade tree and plenty of chairs around. However, we found the room had a dirty floor and most distressing to those who suffer from a bad back....a...

Great view. Great hammocks. Goes down hill from there. Nasty cabins, dirty sheets and dirty towels with unknown stains. Bugs from ceiling to floor. A toad the size of a toilet bowl under the bed. No closet. No water pressure in shower. Toilet doesn't flush. Holes in the ceiling covered up by tissue paper. Mold on all four of the... More

We were disappointed with our cabin and probably should have turned right around once we walked in the door. Musty smell, spiders and dead bugs around, roaches and geckos. The upstairs bed was too soft, with the spiral staircase leading up so tight that it's hard to bring your luggage. The bathroom was a little grim, with duct tape holding... More
