Room and staff are amazing. A trek to get to, but well worth the relaxation and snorkeling opportunities. Breakfast is abundant with the regular lunch items plus miso, rice w/ cashews and desserts (chocolate cake, banana bread with cream cheese frosting, donuts) that are freshly made and delicious.

Some service personnel are amazing though and will go totally out of their way to help and serve. The bar pool closes at 23:00 :( and the other bar at 00:00 :( ask for Motu at the Fish bar, he is a great... More
