Wonderful in 1 word! If you are looking for a few days of heaven at an amazing price - GO! If you expect rose-petals on your pillow every evening with scented candles then try spending $500 a night in the Maldives. If you are content to be on a tropical island in the Caribbean for a $50 a night, then try this. A real treat.... this is the way to unwind. The staff are great, the rooms are funky - rustic and cool. Make sure you ask for a room with an upstairs bathroom. Wander up the winding staircase in your room and they have open-air baths/showers, all just under the huge palm-thatched roof that covers the whole complex. Plenty of options for snorkelling, diving and just pedalloing around.... The water is divine, tropical fish abound and you can unwind after dinner on the terrace bar. Orlando runs the bar outside and he's worth every ice cube he slips into the cocktails. The chefs may think Michelin only make tyres but it's good enough to put up with an eternal buffet of fresh fruit and salads....... and one more thing... don't bother packing any insect repellent, because there aren't any to repel!

One of the best places that i have ever been in my life. I absolutely adore this place. I wish I could live there. Very good value for money. The staff are so warm and friendly and the food is so so lovely too. Water sports, scuba diving, swimming pool with dolphins and the private zoo are stunning too.

Rationed water...means you can only use the bathroom 3 times a day
It is an Island and a small one. You are trapped after you get bored. Oh, and you'll get bored after the first day because the island is so small.
Did I mention that there is water only 3 times a day?
If you want to bathe after an visit with your spose/mate you will have to wait until the island staff turn on the water. Or you could just schedule your relations around the water rations.
The bathroom came with a sink that was not mounted to the counter and a huge (group sized) hot tub w/peeling paint.btw H2O rationing, so you can't actually use the tub? Well, that's not entirely true, the hot tub acts as the shower. So you have to climb over the side to get to the wall where the shower controls are.
The entertainment is very good and the wait staff are very nice.

Stayed December 2005

We are so picky my husband and me, but this one is so nice! You go there for relax, and swim in the sea! The beachs are perfects, the water is warm, and the hotel is just perfect for the place! The staff is nice, so friendly! The food is really great (it's a buffet, different nationality each evening) and the rooms are very confortable. There's an ecological park on the island, it's include with the hotel. You take a walk and enjoy all the animals and fish...
I just want to say "Go there and enjoy"!!! But for people who are looking for party, it's not the place...
