This island is, without question, beautiful. It is therefore such a shame that the current owners do nothing to make the stay enjoyable. The food is, quite simply, the worst I have ever had, anywhere, in 40 years. The service was at best indifferent and at worst rude. The concept of "all inclusive" means something completely different on this island. The island is tiny - measuring 400 feet by 150 feet and yet the owners have packed no less than 16 beach cabins in to a very small area, leaving nowhere for privacy or exploring. The food was appalling - by way of example the evening meal was one boiled potato, some green salad which was well past its sell by date and inedible and a tiny sliver of fish measuring around 3 inches by one inch. The breakfast bread was not properly baked - when we asked them to cook it longer they deep fried it! We were there as a family of 6 (4 children) and we were all constantly hungry due to the tiny portions. For $75 a night "all inclusive" this was a total rip off. The owners have done everything they can to cut corners financially, which means that everything is cut to the bone...or extra - drinks (apart from water and coffee), snorkles, excursions (other than one free 2 hour one where even then they want a $2 island entry fee). The accommodation is very basic, although this is to be expected. The cabins are packed together tightly so there is zero privacy. If you do go to this island bring your own food and but some lobster from the local fisherman which they will cook for you - this is what another group did - they clearly had insde knowledge This the first negative review I have ever written and I do not write it lightly.
