I was concerned when I read some of the previous negative reviews about Aore Resort - after I made the booking. I can only say that anyone that didn't enjoy their time on Aore, might as well stay home! This place is fantastic!
We stayed for a week - with our 9 year old son. There was plenty to do and the staff, including the owners - were extremely helpful. The snorkelling in front of the resort is fantastic and so safe for kids. We found our bungalow comfortable and well equipped - the only complaint being the lack of lighting for reading at night.
The food is great - and the staff cooked the Tuna I caught to perfection and served it as sashimi especially for us the following night. The beef is so tender, and again cooked just as ordered. There was a local band playing one night which was great fun.
The reliable ferry makes getting to Santo for diving and other day trips a breeze. I have to add that the diving from Santo is excellent and worth the trip on it's own - I dived with Aquamarine who were helpful and very safety consious.
We would definetly recommend Aore Resort - so much so we're going back next year with friends!! (My husband didn't want me to post this in case we can't get the dates we want!)
