Just returned from my second visit to the resort in 3 years. Did not disappoint. Spectacular weather for the full week I was there, incredible beaches and the most relaxing, beautiful pool imaginable. I went for a de-stress and achieved that almost on the first day. Staff were friendly (if a little disengaged at times) and the facilities were great. Waking up and going down to the jetty each morning to be greeted by a warm breeze and the sun on my face was perfect. Brought my own food from Cairns as the food options on the island are really limited to either very expensive at the restaurant or basic at the bar. Could really work on better options. Otherwise, can't really complain as I had a great time just relaxing and doing not much at all. No hesitation in recommending this place to anyone thinking about it. Well worth it. I'll be back...
Gorgeous island. Stunning snorkelling right from the beach. Swam with turtles.
Limited supply of food from the shop.
Cafe and restaurant food was great.
Massage was awesome.
Avoid the dive centre shop - staff are very rude and do not offer refunds or reschedules. Hire equipment from the beach hire instead.
The location is amazing. The only bad thing about the holiday was the food: no choice and the only two restaurant made very bad quality food.
