The facilities in the resort are really good: lovely restaurant, internet working well, nice common areas, swimming pool... However, our room (4 people dorm) is VERY basic. Lots of mosquitoes, a bit down (needs an urgent renovation), smelly and way too small for 4 people. I'm pretty sure you can find better and cheaper in other beaches like ABC.

The resort is the largest on the short stretch of Paya beach (800 meters long). It is almost self contained with salt water pool, restaurant, bar, gift shop, spa, snorkeling and dive centre within its compound. Depending on the package that you take, buffet meals from the main restaurant is included. It is nothing great, but will fill you up.... More

We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw the price of three nights here in April, but when it's too good to be true, usually is. We arrived having had a horrible experience getting the ferry to the island to find our room was very cell like. It was cheap but not particularly cheerful. I give it three stars because... More
