On first impression we were really dissapointed as the woman who greeted us had no idea about the hotel and couldnt answer any questions we had. When we finally got to our room i was ready to jump on the first plane outa there. The room was pretty old... More

Clean, comfortable, with very friendly staff. Dive center and spa superb. Avail yourself of both. Half board a must as there is little option beyond the main dining room. We finally figured out that splitting an entree for lunch in the coffee shop is the way to go. Found the island very quiet as bar prices for non "all-inclusive" was... More

Holiday Island was our choice for the honeymoon and we didn’t regret it. The place is quite and privacy guaranteed, also the some good activities can be done like snorkeling, taking a boat to sun island, GYM, tennis table, tennis, babyfoot and some good entertainment by the bar at night, so it was quite but not boarding. The food is... More

We have had the most wonderful time here on holiday island. Apparently this is a 'budget' island, but our experience has been nothing like that. The rooms are private chalets, just metres from beach. The food is good, the menu changes enough each day. The bar is well stocked and the beach bar has amazing sunsets. The spa is definitely... More

Very nice hotel if you want to spend some alone time with your partner. The bungalows are clean and bathroom is big. Each bungalow has its own sunbed. You can book some daily excursions in the reception or go every three hours with a free boat to the nearby sister island & hotel - Sun Island Hotel. Staff is nice... More

The resort bungalows are well separated and gives you a good feeling of ease and luxurious relaxation. The breakfast buffet provides many options and if your diet consists of non-veg foods, then your dinner will surely be delightful. Most of the staff members here become very excited and happy on seeing Indians among the guests. In this resort, the relationship... More

This place we chose after extensive research from tripadvisor forums. We initially booked for 2 deluxe rooms with only breakfast inclusive but later on found that it's better to take the all inclusive option as that dear friends ( believe or not) includes all meals and unlimited alcohol at all their bars including the pool bar and pub. The pool... More
