Discreet but excellent service ( and staff) in a Gilligan's Island style paradise. Beautiful location, great snorkelling and delicious food. A good way to either end or begin a trip to Tahiti; to chill, read and swim. 4 days was the right period for us, allowing us to snorkel, kayak, paddle board and relax and recharge our batteries to return...

A very quite and private place. Max capacity of 20 tourists and 15 personnel. Food was fantastic and all personnel very friendly and helpful. Many free sport activities, free internet and water in mini-bar. For sure will be back again in the fantastic location.
