Getting there late, 5.00pm at the Nady Airport, made the 3 hour bus trip a little bit to long. It was well off set by the short trip in an over sized tinny skippered by Warren the owner manager of the resort. We had no moon but an exelent clear sky and the view of the stars made us quickly for get the trip before.
A lovely meal awaited us at the island presented by Stephany who is a great hostess.
In to the Beach side Burow followed by a rest full sleep in a comfortable queen size bed. Whilst the accomodation is not 4 or 5 star, it is very comfortable and what a lovely suprise, NO TV.
4 off us, over 60, did not do what people normaly do on this island. We did not use a sail board or kite and neither did we go diving. We just chilled out. The meals ( you don't have any choice) were all good, tasty and plenty off it. Most importent, THE BEER WAS ALLWAYS COLD. There was also a good selection of white and red wine.
All the other guest staying there at the same as us, did all the sport offered and had a blast as the wind was blowing most times.
The rest of the staff, Yasper, Clint and Michelle allways were on hand to make our stay a very enjoyable one.
For any person wishing to do these sporting activities as number 1 during their holiday, Go for for it, as I don't think you could find a more suitable place.
Well done and thanks to Warren and Stephany.
