We had a wonderful relaxing experience

Great place to snorkel. Saw turtles, beautiful colorful fish and beautiful coral.


Loved the island - but the resort is getting a bit faded. Maintenance is required.

We enjoyed our stay but the room and some of the common areas need work. We noticed that renovations were happening and it may be that management has it in hand. The island is the star. The reef starts a few metres from the beach and the range of corals and fish is wonderful. We also enjoyed the walks. I think the island works best for active people. We are not young but we enjoy walking and snorkelling. We found the resort staff to be excellent - friendly, efficient and welcoming. The restaurant food and beverage offerings were really good and despite having a captive market - prices were not over the top. We plan to visit again - perhaps next winter.


Nice location

No wifi in rooms (was not advised it was only common areas in booking process).
Pool under renovations and closed (was not advised in booking process).

Won't return as it's ticked off the bucket list now. 1 day/night would be plenty.
