I have stalled in writing my review for Poppy's on the lagoon as I didn't enjoy my stay here as much as hoped. But this is no fault of management or the team that run the hotel because everyone we encountered was lovely and very helpful. Special mention to Rachel who works on reception for helping us with getting around... More

I spent a week there with my wife, little baby daughter and had an amazing time. The staff was so friendly and truly loving to our daughter. The place is very well located , close enough to town but not in the middle of all chaos. For us this was a great place to stay and we would definitely recommend... More

With a last minute holiday planned over the New Year period we weren't showered with accommodation variety. Choosing Poppy's for 4 nights was clean, comfortable, friendly, and only a short bus ride to town (after walking a steep uphill Poppy's driveway). 3 small pools & free use of kayaks kept our 12 year old entertained, a level of wifi at...

We were staying at Mangoes Resort which is nearby so we visited Poppy's for a morning swim and lunch in the bar/restaurant. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The lagoon is nice to swim in. It's full of starfish that are beautiful but spiky so wear reef shoes. There are hammocks and canoes you can use too if you visit.... More

Lovely local staff very helpful, Resort Manager Rude to both staff and guests, bar needs to stay open longer, closing at 8-8,30 pm is not good. Very clean and tidy, good location, nice food, could do with air conditioning, fresh water showers would be good and guest showers who have late flights out.

We stayed here for 8 nights from after Christmas to the new year. Our friends had stayed at poppys before but this was our first visit. We were in a garden bungalow and I would definitely recommend it, as the bungalows have air conditioning and a kitchenette unlike the other rooms. The adult pool is really good as is the... More

Great facilities and rooms. Three pools, one just for the adults. The most lovely, friendly people you'll ever meet! Walking distance into town. We highly recommend Poppys, especially for families. Enjoy!
