We spent 4 days in August: the apartment was probably conceived to be a luxury place for long stay. Full of cupboards, a big fridge etc... well, there were hardly 4 plates and 4 forks. And the "supermarket" on the island had 1 loaf of bread, expired milk ... quite depressing. It sells peelers, but no fruit or vegetable?!?
The mattress was just too soft (for our taste) thus making the sleep quality just average
We tried the swimming pool once only: freezing and crowded.
We did not try the main restaurant, the other one was pretty basic but OK, with nice staff.
The diving centre is disappointing: staff completely unengaged, and not very organized (too say the least) even if they try to be nice.
The island is beautiful and nudey beach just amazing (also the walk to get there), but a day trip would probably do.
