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...
