Having read some of the reviews we weren't sure what we would find. We shouldn't have worried, yes, there are maintenance issues but these are being addressed but the over water bungalow with private pool is perfect if you want complete privacy. It is also the biggest we have ever stayed in, the bathroom itself if bigger than some room suites and the outdoor shower is a lovely addition. The island itself is small but has a beautiful beach with white sands and a lovely lagoon surrounding it. We saw plenty of sealife without the need to snorkel (although there are near-by reefs). Large sting-ray were seen floating past and were magical to watch. The staff were extremely helpful and were extremely friendly (other reviews said the staff were unfriendly, but if you are friendly to them they were certainly friendly back). They also work extremely hard, especially the kitchen staff who produced fantastic meals throughout our 8 night stay. Everything was delicious. The Mosaic restaurant was also extremely good (included in the full board package for lunches) and you can choose from a wide ranging menu. My husband and I are normally fairly critical when it comes to food and we had zero cause to complain. The drinks are a tad expensive (no more expensive than a London restaurant) but there is a happy hour before dinner for cocktails and after dinner for ports and cognacs.
We had a back massage in the spa which was really good, again with great staff who took their time over our treatment, giving us some ginger tea and fruit to enjoy in the treatment room garden.
When we stayed apparently the resort was around 70% full but it really felt that we saw no more than 20 other people (during dinner) at any one time. The villas are so well equipped that we personally only left to have breakfast, lunch or dinner, so if you want some time to completely relax on a beautiful island with good food and little interaction with others then Zithali is a great choice.
