Great food, great service, lovely bar, clean facilities, best coffee on the island. Good spot from where to adventure. While I haven't stayed here, I have checked out the accommodation and it's of a high standard.

We did not stay at the resort. We visited the restaurant and the salt and pepper calamari were good, however pizza was barely average and the laksa was shockingly bad (I.e. description said noodles, but they used linguini.. the taste was very far from laksa). Although understanding the food availability constraints of the restaurant being on an island, we expected... More

Thanks for your comments. I must say we are very surprised that you found our pizza’s average as we have never had a bad review about them. Pizza's are a popular item on our menu so, as long as we exceed nearly everyone’s expectations with our pizza’s we feel no need to change. As for the Laksa, we have no... More

We stayed for 6 nights and absolutely loved our private bungalow at Lope Lope! On this holiday we were seeking a quiet destination away from the crowds with its own private beach and a relaxing atmosphere. Lope Lope delivered everything needed and more! The beach is tidal which made snorkeling the reef outside our room much more easily accessible with... More

We stayed here one night, and enjoyed it. The lodge only has 4 rooms and our group had 2. The rooms are spacious and well fitted out, with TV, DVD and the most perfect outdoor shower. We had dinner and breakfast and enjoyed them both.

We had a 10 day stay here and the natural surrounds are lovely. Beware that this is on a coral reef and depending on tides your beach could be some distance from your front door.
