We were a group of 16 people, all with children. Our family of four stayed in garden terrace number 287, which was gorgeous, with a small peak of the sea, and about 60 m from the sea.
We had a superb stay, with no tummy bugs. We loved the friendly staff, the eating options, and the snorkelling was incredible. Loved the free use of the kayaks and snorkelling gear.
I had read many of the reviews here, and I'm happy to say we had great weather, clean accommodation, friendly people, no theft, and a system that works well to give families a great experience.
We are nature-lovers, and I would love to see some information on the exquisite fish that swim under the pontoons and on the reef, and more information about protecting the reefs. A guided or sign-posted walk or two on the island would be fun too.
I recommend the Sandbank Snorkelling Boat Trip. We saw a huge range of fish, and liked the fact that the guide told us not to break the coral with our flippers, and not to swim directly over the reef. The locals are quietly working on a new coral reef near the jetty, which is great as the reefs are under threat from the acidified oceans and the coral is bleached and dying.
Otherwise, we had a great time.
