Jeannie the great manager
The hotel itself are having a very good view with crystal clear sea. The food is very pricey for about USD30++ for one pizza. The room are facing the sea with a spectacular view. We love the morning daily snorkeling excursion together with the staff who will look over us. We would like to extend our appreciation to Jeannie she has helped us a lot especially our delayed luggage, she help us to solved it immediately when this was happened. She showed us what is the professional customer service be like.

A pleasant holidays
House locate nears the beach; resort-wide wifi coverage; room is clean
1. Transport from and to airport is good; 2. Once arrival, good brief to us from reception and quick to go to our house. At brief , it's is better to highlight the good place for snorkeling - around yellow ball beside the port. We took first day afternoon to search for good place for snorkeling at all three swimming areas, but did not find it. Until in the evening, I happened to wonder at the port, asked the staff, then he pointed to me. 3. Tour to turtle point reef snorkeling can be improvement - after we arrived to the turtle point reef, the staff took us to see turtle, which was good. Then he lead us to go to point B.which was not short distance, I was swimming instead of snorkeling, did not have to enjoy snorkeling, did not have enough time to see corels and fish. I don't think it is necessary to reach point B from starting point, should guide us to see turtle ,then allow us to snorkel around as we like for one hour.

Friendly staff, Best catamaran experience
Friendly staff, Best catamaran experience, the old fashion juicer
It was a great stay. The resort has lots of things to do - kayaking, snorkling, massage, and the best is the Catamaran experience. Our guide is very helpful and brought us to a colorful reef for snorkling. The staffs are very friendly and helpful. It a peaceful place to relax and unwind. The room blends well with the island/ environment. The old fashion juicer is interesting, and I find it great to be included in the room. We saw some baby sharks during a stroll around the island.
