Myself and my partner spent 2 nights here in January 2012. It was the 3rd island we went to and it had good and bad bits.
The surroundings are lovely and the bures are set on a nice, well kept garden near the beach. We had a bure with a balcony overlooking the sea. Our room was good, well furnished and clean.... the only problems were the fan switch was broken (not good in the heat) and our door wouldn't lock. We told the staff about this and they said it was broken by the last guests, we can move or just not lock our door.... we chose the second option as the location of our room was top-notch.
The food was okay but not always ready on time. One morning, the clocks had changed and none of the staff had informed the guests... so we were waiting a long time for our breakfast.
The staff were not as friendly as at other resorts. There was no entertainment in the evenings, which we were used to. We had a difficult job trying to get kayaks for an activity we had paid for as part of our trip.... we had to keep chasing after them for the use of the kayaks and eventually someone went to get one from the nearest island! The staff seemed quite lazy, choosing to lay in their 'staff room' watching TV rather than seeing if the guests were okay. We persistently asked to borrow the volleyball, after some time we were allowed it... and it didn't take long before the staff had taken over and the game became more of a competition than fun.
The shell bracelet making was good, with the local women... they did push for us to buy more, but we can understand why they want to sell as much as they can.
