I have been struggling to write a review without the overuse of the words 'paradise', 'idyllic', 'wonderful' and 'superb' but it really was all those things and more. The island is very small but beautiful with blue seas, white sand and green trees. The facilities were excellent from the water villas, restaurants, bars, water sports and excursions. We stayed in...
