Quiet and peaceful resort. The bungalows are spacious and well appointed. It would be great if there was better flow between the bungalows and the restaurant/bar.

This was a wonderful place to come and stay. Spacious rooms on adult side with everything you needed. Swimming pool right at your finger tips with a 2 min walk to beach with nice snorkelling. Breakfast was complimentary and delicious. Along with lots of lunch and dinner options The staff where all very welcoming and friendly. .

The room was very spacious with air con. It had a great sized deck with a table and daybeds. Also an out door shower. The only negative was we had no hot water and asked twice for it to be fixed but it never happened. We did however receive a credit so happy with that.
