Good accomondation at a reasonable cost. The reason for choosing this, was that you would have acces by foot to the beach north and south of the resort as well as restaurant at nearby resorts. Opposed to some of the other resorts on the southen part of the island, which is more isolated. Also that you will be going by... More

Beautiful location but Resort needs updating. We stayed in economy room which was still 190 RM, it was dark and damp, no hot water, air con was not working but worst of all bed bugs. The staff did not seem to believe me or perhaps just didn't care that much even though my daughter and I were covered in bites.... More

The resort was in an excellent location, with amazing views of the sea. The beach directly in front of the hotel was more coral than sand but within a minute walking you can be on powder soft white sand. Wildlife was great here too. Around the bungalows there were Spectacled Leaf Monkeys, squirrels and even saw a Loris. Snorkelling was... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. The food and entertainment was excellent and all the staff were really friendly. Espcially Nicko, great guy. Even managed too get a haircut on the island. Highly recommend this resort. Luke, Oxford, England.

The four of us stayed for 6 nights in May 2014. We have the Executive Sea View Suite (there are 2) that are out on the point. These are their most expensive rooms circa $200AUD a night but the location was supreme. We were trying for a Family Sea View Suite but there were none available. They also booked the... More

We came to the resort at the end of January - and despite doing our research and knowing some of the island would be quiet as it was low season we assumed as the resort was open and taking paying customers, it would be ok. We booked two nights initially but only ended up staying one! The location is great,... More

It's all about location of your room. beach side is always the best you can get. The chalets are ok, with hot water facilities but all is limited. Please ensure that your food (breakfast, lunch, dinner) is included in the package or not. If it is included, ensure that it is buffet or not. We thought it was buffet, but... More
