We had a 1 bedroom suite. Very nice. Gorgeous bathroom. Comfortable bed. Loved how the lounge and the bedroom opened up to the deck with nice view to the sea. The Kitchen was well appointed. It would of been better if we had taken more food to utilise the kitchen better. At this time of the year the options for lunch were limited.
Zephyr restaurant was lovely - Foxys was average.
Great snorkelling we even saw a turtle and were glad to see the coral rejuvinating. Not so nice having to wear stinger suits. Not the most flattering garment but extremely practical.
Fantastic swim up bar. Thank you Jess - she was our fantastic friendly barmaid at the swim up bar - our wairtress at breakfast and again at dinner. Thank you Jess.
We meet Gus the 1.2metre iguana - nice to see glad we took a wide berth.
Only disappointment was we were told that there was a glass bottom tour included in our package deal. When we asked we were told that the boat had been damaged in a storm. I think that it would have been nice if we were told on arrival and compensated.
However really enjoyed the stay and would go back in a heartbeat.
