Congratulations on giving us a wonderful finish to our holiday. When we arrived we thought to ourselves ‘we are in the middle of nowhere what are we going to do with ourselves?’ We soon found out that doing nothing was pretty good.
We loved everything about our stay. The villas were amazing giving you privacy when you wanted it coupled with the sea right on your doorstep. The attention to detail of the owners is to be congratulated. Everything was catered for and they managed to do this whilst giving you a carefree and relaxing stay.
The food was great. There is a set meal of fish but really you can have what you want within reason. Service could be slowed down a little as after dinner there is no much else to do but relax.
We did one trip to swim with the dolphins. We swam with over 20, which was a real result for us. All the other trips were quite expensive but this was typical for the island in general as the taxi fares were very expensive.
The beach could be an issue for some as it is tidal. This didn't bother us at all and we still managed two swims a day at high tide. Bring jelly shoes if you want to go in the water at any other time.
