Me and my wife (fiance at the time) are ocean freaks and we found Cubadak Paradiso Village (CPV) to be a gem that we would like to hide from everyone else (even though we can't help ourselves raving about it non stop).
The island is beautiful with current-free, wave friendly turquoise blue water surrounding it. This essentially became our swimming pool and we spent most of our time in the sundeck - swimming, drinking, and relaxing.
The villa was "elegantly eco". Built with the finest material and passion for fine things in life - imagine wildlife meets four season resort. The bathroom was stylishly nature friendly. AC is not needed due to the cool breeze at night.
CPV's cuisine was also a joy to behold. We were amazed how a remote island such as this was able to serve amazing dish after dish. Being Franco-Italian ran, they served some of the best desserts we have had to date (we are seasoned travelers and food enthusiasts) - my wife swore by their chocolate cake.
If you are looking for Hawaii-style resort with spas, pools, and night life, stay away from CPV.
If you are enlightened enough to enjoy a Robinson Crusoe style of getaway, this is your best bet! Relatively easy to reach despite it's picture perfect-secluded location, and friendly on your wallet.
