Yes, it is an absolutely beautiful bay with nice, if a bit basic, accommodation. But, food, transfers, and daytrips are all overpriced. Also even in calm weather, it took us well over one hour by very loud local banca boat from Port Barton. The resort is pretty well maintained, however, some pieces of rubbish were not picked up during the length of our 4 night stay. The worst however, were the sandflies on the beach, you have to cover yourself in repellent even during the day (and some Jellyfish & of course mosquitoes at night). Having said that, if aware of the above, it is a very romantic and quiet spot for a few days of privacy & relaxing. Free tea & coffee self service, and free WiFi in restaurant during electricity times. Beware of current building works involving a little bit of noise.
