We went to Apulit during the low season, which meant a certain risk of rain. The upside is the resort was almost empty, it felt like we had the place to ourselves. We stayed in a small hut on stilts in the water. Small, but well-equipped and tastefully decorated. Perfect for a couple. Nice balcony for lounging. We really enjoyed watching the baby sharks hunt for anchovies under the terrace. Wildlife was really close up and interesting to watch. Colorful birds and fish. Make sure you go on the snorkelling trip with one of the guides, you will be amazed at the sights on different coral reefs in the area.
The resort offers many activities, make sure you ask thoroughly to find out exact what you can do every day. Most of the activities are free, only the diving and the massage was extra.
Food is a buffet at every meal. It's not extraordinary, but there's always lots of fresh greens and fruits, and you can pick out your own meat, fish or seafood which the chefs prepares for you. Sometimes, you can compose you own fried rice, soup or fried noodle which the chefs prepares. Something for every taste.
The service is excellent, everybody is smiling. The staff was very helpful and quickly fixed everything that we asked for.
Can also be recommended for families, as there were bigger huts. The activities were also well suited for kids.
However, we enjoyed the few days when there were no kids at sight...
