If you have taking the time to read a ton of reviews about this place you really do not need to read mine to gain additional insight. The place is all it is said to be, and more. The wife and I stayed for a week and wish we had booked for two. Everyone on the staff is great, the owner is great and seemed genuinely interested in everyone's feedback.
You can venture off the property and visit some cool places within walking distance. Just do me a favor at night and be careful. Stick to the side of the road and stay aware. The road is fairly narrow. Honestly though it was extremely difficult to leave.
I have traveled all over the world and have yet to find a property and intriguing as this. You literally could spend hours walking around taking in all the details, and it is not that big of a place. I have seen mixed reviews about the comfort of the beds. It was a little firmer than my bed at home, however I haven't slept this well in a long time.
If your style is pure relaxation with as much or as little contact with the other guest is your fit, than stay here. Seriously, I really cannot put the magic of this place into words. If you need action, go elsewhere.
Ivan's at night is a great time and the whole staff gets involved in the fun. Singing, dancing, and smiles abound. Order up a Purple Rain and drink it for me. It seats roughly 12 people around the bar, with additional comfy seating right behind. It was all couples I believe the whole time of all ages.
If you like to cliff jump this is also the place for you. I would say you have heights from 4 to 30 ft to chose from, just a rough guess. If you are looking for Great Barrier Reef snorkeling you will be at a loss. They do have some stuff to see, it's just not in great abundance. You can take a short trip with one of the several boats who cruises by during the day to see some better snorkeling. The world famous Rick's is just two properties down, so you have the same view as the herds of folks over there.
The onsite restaurant is currently rated #1 on Tripadvisor. Go there and eat and if staying on property you can take the few steps down to the restaurant/bar and place your order. Let them know where you plan to be and they will bring it to you. A lounger, your room, an alcove, a table, whatever wherever NO PROBLEM MON.
The pool is nice for a quick dip or if the seas pick up. Our entire week the sea was swimable.
