We absolutely loved it here! You can make this place whatever you want your vacation to be - a romantic getaway, active with activities, an extension of your family, or all of the above.
The staff, food, and experience were incredible.
Resort is secluded, which is an absolute plus as you are away from touristy areas. You are dependent upon them for all your meals, and they were all delicious. The fruit smoothies were also wonderful (I had both- the pineapple and the mango). They accommodated special requests at the bar and even for dessert.
The island hopping tour should not be missed. We visited a village on another island, snorkeled at multiple locations, and had lunch on our very own gorgeous tiny island.
Great snorkeling overall. Saw many, many things (sea snakes, lion fish, tons of starfish, seahorses, sea cucumbers, clams, wide variety of coral, different jelly fish and of course lots of fish. Can't remember everything...)
The country tour felt a little rushed. I did not like the conditions at the little "zoo" we visited (where the big snake is). Others did not mind it as they took pictures up close with the snake - not for me.
Take the time to get to know rhe staff. They are great people. Overall, we loved this place!
One last thing... Mosquito's... A lot of them. Bring repellant, and anti-itch cream as they will get you. If you forget, they have little packages of off.
