I give the staff a 5 star rating, but not the rooms. We thankfully had a beach side room which was great for our family to hang out on the deck and then take quick dips in the ocean which was literally only a few feet away. Unlike some other islands that we've been to, this one had 24 hour electricity which made it bearable because it was very, very hot and we were able to use the fan when we were inside the unit during the day. We spent one night in an air con unit and then moved to the beach side one. I'm glad that we were in the beach side unit because the other ones are very close together and would only be good to sleep in, not hang out in the hammock. The night bbq was good and the fish were super fresh and very handy since it is quiet on this beach. The rooms themselves are very basic and really need a few things to be worth the money that you're spending. They don't have any hooks to hang things on the walls (towels etc.), no small lamps, or soap etc. The first few days we were there they cleaned our rooms but not the last two. The big downer on this beach are the dogs. They howl and bark all night long. Not much this resort can do about it, but it's something to be aware of.
If you want a place for your kids to snorkel and be treated well, this is the place. Just don't go expecting a fancy resort.
