We stayed 3 nights in a deluxe room, with a good sea view. The rooms were clean and spacious and had a lovely balcony to sit out in the evening.
The resort is managed by an English guy and the place is extremely well ran; the pick up boat was ready waiting for us when we arrived at the ferry terminal, which promptly took us to the resort, which can only be reached by boat.
The resort is self contained with a small beach and patio area with sun loungers (beach towels provided). There is a small diving school which will organise diving and snorkelling trips. It is well worth walking to the nearby village and onto the waterfall, they will arrange a boat to pick you up if you don't fancy the walk back.
Overall the resort is an excellent secluded getaway for a few days of relaxation. The only negative comment would the food served is fairly average but adequate. The barbeque evening was the exception, which was very good. They also serve a free tea and cake/biscuit in the afternoon.
