We spent 4 night here in March and had an amazing time. To get to the resort you have to jump on the mini ferry across the lagoon, it was like arriving on treasure Island! We had room 121, a standard bungalow right at the front of the beach. It could do with a bit of a refurbish - you can upgrade to a delux but this room suited us fine. You coud not ask for a better location. To sit on your little patio and watch the giant butterflys flutter by in the sunshine and the hermit crabs scuttle past you soon start to feel like you are in paradise.
Its total relaxation. We were full board. We are not great lovers of full board, so the daily ritual of going to meals at set times and scoffing too much buffet was a slight downside for us but the food was of a high standard.
Had a magical time here and would go back tomorrow :-)
