They've also updated the resort by adding signage at the entry way and adding another bar in the back, near the dive shop, among several... More

Stayed 1 night in family room. Family room is spacious, with 2 beds and 1 foam bed. Kids loved the play area and pool. Very quiet and relaxing place. Breakfast is not so yummy though but I always go for fruits which they have lots so that's ok. Worth the price!

Our room was clean and quiet. The dive masters are wonderful. My husband and I had not dived in many years and the dive team was incredible with getting us comfortable back in the water. Highly recommend this resort! Great pool. The restaurant serves wonderful curries and fish and chips.
