Arrived the first day... Room we received for the "honeymoon package" looks nothing like illustrated on the sites. I paid honeymoon room rate for a room that did not even have tiles, just plain concrete. My wife loves to bath, the pic I saw on the net had a nice bathtub. No tub in room (nor tiles) or anything that... More

What an absolutely beautiful place and what an experience. We travelled with a 5 year old who loved the ferry trips to and from the island. The accommodation was lovely and the zebras in our camp were treat. This is the perfect destination to escape the hustle and bustle of crowds . Herbie was a delight and always willing to... More

The setting, accommodation, hospitality and travel logistics are all great. It is a destination for families and honeymooners alike... I had anticipated problems in getting onto the Island but the ferryman was always at our beck and call.

Our family had a fantastic and fun time. The service/staff were excellent. Our suite was very comfortable. Seeing the zebra right outside our doorstep was quite an unique experience. The food was top rate. I would highly recommend Stanley Island.

We have spent 2 nights on the island. The accommodation is good, staff very friendly and helpful (especially shuttling one by boat even at night time when we went into town for supper!), and the setting stunning. We particularly enjoyed the early morning canoeing around the island.

4 and a half star, I DON'T THINK so!! 1.) Green pool. 2.) Nothing to do. 3.) Average room (Honeymoon suite) 4.) No proof of payment. As we arrived to get on the boat, the "manager" made us wait 15mins to see he's supplier so that in his words "we don't get old bread and salad with worms on". Not... More

We thought this will be a great idea to stay on an island for 3 days and enjoy the surroundings. From the beginning it was disappointing. We booked in beginning October and when we arrived beginning January we were transferred to another place to stay. The reason they are not finished in clearing party equipment from the island. We then... More
