My husband and I stayed in a one bedroom villa for 10 days while doing a dive course and we loved it.
The villas are in the middle of the island between the fields and can be reached by dust roads. The main tourist strip with the majority of restaurants is a 20 minutes walk away (or a couple of minutes by bicycle or horse cart) Because there are very few streetlights on the island you can literally see every star and the milky way when walking back at night.
The resort provides torches and bicycles with locks, so getting back at night is not a problem, although a bit adventurous because of potholes in the road.
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and housekeeping does a good job.
I especially liked the layout of the villas: the villas are walled and provide all privacy that you could require, but unlike other villas we stayed in before most of the facilities were outdoors: the kitchen and dining area are outdoors, but also the sitting area with television. All areas are sheltered and cooling is provided by big ceiling fans. Our bathroom was an outdoor bathroom as well.
The only time we ever spend indoors was when we were sleeping!
I would recommend this place to most people, unless you are very squeamish about small animals: since a large part of the facilities are outdoors you will have to share it with the occasional insect or mouse.
We will definitely go back.
