We love beaches and snorkeling - and decided to stay here before our safari's. Good decision. Snorkeling was great - lots of fish and very clear water. Food was also very good and we loved our "cabins" - very comfortable and really liked the fact that you could open the front wall to the stars and outside. Only caution. Do not stay here if you MUST have flush toilet etc. as the place does not just use the label eco-lodge - it practices what it preaches. Great place to unwind.
