There are lots of positives about the Beach Village. Firstly, the staff are friendly and do their very best to ensure people have a pleasant stay. Different activities can be organised through reception including a reef walk, visit to the local village and diving/ snorkelling through the onsite dive centre. Te grounds are well kept and bungalows are within easy reach of the beach. As mentioned in other reviews it is not easy to swim at the beach although you could snorkel at high tide. Most visitors (including us) tend to use the swimming pool which is a super area to relax. The bungalows are nice but ours was in need of some basic maintenance. The room had a fan but this is completely ineffective as it does not flow through the mosquito net. Very few rooms have air conditioning and in my opinion I would expect air con due to the high price of rooms and considering there are other good options just down the beach that offer this. Overall the food is good and is different enough each evening to maintain interest. Breakfast has variety and you can choose from homemade muesli (excellent) to bacon/ eggs on a scone etc. I would have given a slightly higher rating but I simply do not believe that the Village Resort offers value for money in comprison with other options.
