We visited here late May and its in a lovely location on the beach. The rooms are well positioned and we had a gorgeous view of the sea. The sand is used for floor covering between the bar, restaurant and rooms, with only one wooden walkway, so you do feel as if you're on the beach. The room was a decent size with a good balcony and a good sized en-suite. The decor is very rustic and I would have preferred smoother floor tiles in the rooms that could be washed more easily, from a practical point. The staff were helpful and brought drinks to the room if asked. The manager was very nice and she made herself available by working in the dining area. It was nice to see and hear the owners young children playing as it gave the place a family feel.
There was access to snorkling equipment and a kayak and possibly more, free, so it was fun to go out to the coral reef and watch the fish, (my first time snorkelling). The staff also arranged for someone responsible, to take us out to the reef as we were beginners, in a hollowed out mango tree canoe their grandfather had made, to be recommended.
If there was anything that I didn't like it was the waterlovers branding on the bed, chairs, towels etc. and I would have liked more seafood, simple, without too many sauces. Otherwise go and have a lovely relaxing time, but watch out for the mozzies as eating is in the openair.
