This place is a hidden gem. The people are warm and friendly the facilities are wonderful. Step out of you door to your own private piece of paradise. The food was exceptional and service way beyond expectations. I would come here again and again as many of the visitors here have.

We were so looking forward to our trip to Bokissa. I knew it was't "flash". I knew it was a little run down. But everyone talks about the wonderful experience, the great snorkelling, the food...and they love it. Sadly...we didn't . And reading recent reviews I think there have been some like us.

We stayed in one of the beach front fares, (all are actually beachfront) and it was wonderful. You could take a few steps and collapse into a hammock or a few more steps onto the crystal clear reef and snorkel with an abundance of reef fish and turtles.

We stayed late here last year and I have to say I have a bit of trouble believing some of the negative views. We had probably the most relaxing holiday of our life.
