Amazing services, amazing place, worth to pay.... Hidden costs must b included before you move on, their meal usually don't include water so consider 3-5$ for bottle of water in meals, airport to island only option is sea plane, which cost 350$ per person. In simple words, pay and goto paradise... The best holidays ever spent...

The food was amazing. We had a different buffet every day and from lunch to dinner. We took all inclusive and it's worth it. The diving school was really friendly, helpful. Nitrox is included. Robin makes the best cocktail.

We choose this resort because you could snorkel from the beach, which lived up to our expectations. The staff were all very friendly, would recommend to anyone. Good choice of food - sweets were exceptional.
