We loved staying here- we had the first "garden" bungalow with a great view of the infinity pool and the water.The greeting was warm and the bungalow decorated with fresh flowers which made it even warmer. The tropical decor of the bungalow was nice and the deck a great place to hang out. The bungalow had cooking facilities but we never cooked. Breakfast was included with the room and there was not just the usual cereals, juices, fruit, toast but some days also included pancakes, cheese, tomatoes. The salads and sandwiches we had were good, main meals were ok not great and the lamb meal fatty and undercooked. The island night buffet was excellent. The fire dance interesting but the calibre of the dancing not high. Good snorkelling from shore in shallow water. The giant clam nearby is well marked and not far fom shore. Heavy rain kept us from a lagoon. We used the bikes to pedal tothe "village"- scarely anything there.
