If you're expecting Resort lifestyle and service this is not a place for you. If you however want peace and quiet, simple lifestyle and a beautiful beach right outside then I definitely recommend this place. Our cabin was simple but a bit worn down. The Bathroom could use a brush up. But we found the cabin ok for sleeping which is basically what you need it for. Beach is really nice. Beautiful clear blue water with the possibility of snorkeling. It is not the best spot for snorkeling the water is a bit rough and there rocks but you can borrow a life jacket. Food was OK. Again simple is the word that comes to mind. Suggestions for improvements: - a table at the cabinbalcony so you can play cards and games (cabin 11) - wodden beach furniture could use a maddress as they are really hard to lay on - more seafood and fish for dinner

We stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely loved the place. Beautiful Island with a really nice beach just outside the resort. Relaxing and just perfect. The rooms where really clean and you wake up to the sound of waves and singing birds. I really recommend doing Island hopping through the resort with a private boat - fantastic experience!

Cure your jet lag and relax in this rustic, tranquil oasis that is practically your own. Bungalows with beach/ocean views from your terrace, friendly staff (Jem and Sandra!) and great food for being on a remote island. The bungalow rooms are sparsely decorated with a solar powered fan, the island has cold water only and runs on a generator, so charging mobile devices and using WiFi can only happen at certain times of the day, so this is not your place if that is a deal breaker BUT, when can you say you practically had an island to yourself? Put your phone down, strike up a conversation with the guests at the next table and enjoy the moment! Everything we ate was surprisingly delicious (pork medallions w/ curry, pineapple and rice; sweet and sour Chix; Chix w/ mushroom cream sauce and rosti potatoes; breakfast and lunches were great too). There are several hammocks and beach chairs, but never more than 10 people on the beach. A dart board, ping pong table, board games, kayaks (for rent) and several quaint sitting areas around the beautifully lush grounds. There’s also a hiking trail that leads you up and around the resort into the jungle. The bungalows have mosquito nets around the beds, but we never saw one mosquito during our entire stay (and never put on bug spray either, I’d rather not spray poison on my body unnecessarily). All in all this was a very memorable and special place for those seeking something a little off the grid.

If you don't mind being disconnected from the web and cell signal for a few days, this place is for you. I got lucky the first day while snorkeling, I saw a turtle! There are also quite a few fishes and mostly dead corals. The owners are elderly Swiss gentleman and Filipina wife. The staff are very good, as well as the lovely gardens. I got bored there after 2 nights, so I moved to Port Barton beacuse I needed internet connection. The food was very good. They only allow you to use their wifi for 30 minutes per stay for emergency bookings of hotels and flights. I was the only guest at the time, but during the high season they are apparently fully booked. They upgraded me to deluxe room, which had no a/c, only a fan. It was hard for me to sleep at night because of the heat and humidity. Beware of the sand flies, always apply coconut oil generously all over your body. They seem to bite even through rashguard while you're swimming.

If you want to relax, snorkelling and meditate, you have to go there. Only the voice of birds, sea waves (not to big) and some sound of passing boats affair. Cold beer, fresh sea food and helpful owner. You don´t need the air conditional and whole day electricity, because you are in paradise.
