Nice and relaxing island, easy to get there but can be crowded on week end and holiday. Good to spend time with friends and family.

Kind of an average place (note, this is a review of just spending a few hours there, not as guests of the hotel). We were there over low tide which made for very poor snorkeling as it is very shallow close in. Some interesting coral...More

Spent a lovely day here. Got the taxi boat from Anse Vata for the 15 minute trip out for $20 or so each return. There's some snorkelling off the beach but I would suggest getting further out past the sea grass as that is where...More

This was our second stay. The place is getting tired. The grounds and bungalows need maintenance and the food was terrible.
