Was a very relaxing enjoyable getaway. A smooth transfer over with quick & easy check in. Loved the happy hour & chilling by the pool in a beautiful rainforest setting. We only wished we could've stayed longer ;)

Great location, self drive gives plenty of options for exploring island. Don't expect 5 star and you will have a great trip. Staff all friendly. Very comfortable queen bed in villas. Early morning good time to spot sea turtles off the jetty.

Had a fun weekend with friends, however the resort itself is very tired & in need of a complete facelift. Gardens & landscaping overgrown with weeds. Rooms were tidy but not exactly clean (dirty mouldy grout in bathroom)

Lovely relaxing holiday. What we learned: 1) Glad we did our research - took own food and alcohol 2) Small cars can travel over on the barge and around the resort 3) Ask as will not find out otherwise
