The resort has the advantage of being on a fantastic, quiet and immensely beautiful island, with white sandy beaches in the middle of the great barrier reef. Great snorkeling at the doorstep, surrounded by nature. No day tourists.
What you’re paying for are the location, the service (staff is extremely friendly and attentive) and the quietness. If you want a luxurious room with private pool etc. you’re in the wrong place.
The rooms are a nice size with view of the bay and a balcony (even the garden rooms we were in). They are not luxurious though, and the bathroom (shower and toilet part) was even pretty basic and run down. New showerhead with good pressure though.
It’s the service at the bar and restaurant as well as the beach club which makes this a luxury place though. You get taken to any beach on the island (as far as tides allow) either by the team, or you can take your own little dinghy (both complimentary).
Food is great, a good selection of drinks is inclusive, snorkeling gear hire is included. All great there.
Also communication is good on what’s included and what is not.
All in all a great experience. Can only recommend it
