We were looking for an affordable place to stay before and after a 3 day scuba diving trip out to the reef. It did the job, nothing more. The room's were basic, the place needs a refurbishment and it's not walking distance from the main area of shops and restaurants so you should factor in taxi costs of up to $20 in each direction. Whilst the pool area was very pretty, the water is absolutely freezing to the point of unpleasantness. This might be great during the stinking heat of the middle of summer... but not in the temperate winter months.
This was also the start of our honeymoon, and whilst the staff were friendly, they made no attempt to make it special for us... in fact, they joked about a 'honeymoon treat' being in our room but there was nothing. A tad crass.
