The first thing to note is this is an old fashioned family owned and run guest house not a resort.- charming, great staff who go out of the way to be helpful, fabulous food etc so don't go here expecting Bedarra. Once you are over that hurdle, WOW. Location, food, service are outstanding. Some in our group of 6 found no mobile phones and VERY limited internet access on the whole island frustrating to start but as they wound down, they recognised it was a real break and there was nothing to do but snorkel with turtles over beautiful coral, ride bikes on safe roads to gorgeous, beaches, take a hike into a Jurassic Park landscape or up a mountain, lounge around, watch the sunset into the ocean... in other words have a holiday.
We stayed in the three bedroom cabin with a full kitchen that we never used. Rooms were clean and well serviced. Our bathroom was a problem as there was a leaky shower screen but this was a minor inconvenience which was being corrected as we left. We were hardly in the room as there were many more relaxing, interesting places to be.
Go here for complete relaxation. Don't go here if you want nightclubs or city life. Don't let the price put you off - more than value for money when you take into account the airfare and all meals are included - all you need to spend is alcohol and decent coffee and bike hire and believe me you will want to hire a bike.
