Paid for early check in. Didn't get room til 4pm. At time of booking back in APril asked for room with OCean view. Got no view at all. Asked for birthday cake. On checkin was informed no cake. Check out the next the day and want to charge me $85 for a cake that I didn't receive. WE also paid for a cheesecake $40 which didn't receive either. Very disappointing and staff in the Resort are very rude.

The food at Foxy bar was not good and value for money
foxy bar is the only place open for lunch on the island. The food was not good at all and had to wait too long.

Close to paradise
We have just had a wonderful 3 day stay at the island. Despite the occasional clouds in the sky, we were able to really enjoy many of the things the island offered: snorkelling trip to view the coral and fish, visit to turtle sanctuary, bushwalks, table tennis, and drinks and dinner watching the sun set. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. After one day in a bush- facing studio, we upgraded to an ocean suite which was definitely worth it.We will return!

Rooms were basic for the price, ants in the bed, cockroach in the room even though we was on the top floor. The 'nice' restaurant is very expensive and the only other option was mediocre at best. Didn't meet our expectations. Only plus was the staff were good.

A Lovely Stay
Had a lovely stay here over our 1st year Anniversary. Unfortunately was only 1 night and sadly the coral was bleached due the warmer water temperatures recently, however still had an excellent time and saw many beautiful fish. I would definitely recommend a visit to the turtle sanctuary, the AUD 8.- is completely worth it when you understand all they are trying to do to help this beautiful creature. The only low point for me was the extremely rude barman who served us at the pool and then again later at Foxy's bar. He had told us earlier that a certain cocktail was unavailable, we of course forgot the name as one does and tried to order it later only to be snapped at and told that as he had said 6 hours ago, this was not available as the ingredients were not in stock and that he would have come to the bar the first time we asked if there had been stock there. I might add that if stock was running low on a certain item, they could have had this ferry'd over with the many ferries that arrived during that day. In any case, regardless of that, I dont mind if there isnt something available but there is no need to be rude, especially not because guests dont remember which drink has no more ingredients. Anyhow, still had a lovely stay, clean rooms, nice beaches etc. On site store selection could be improved, but as we were there only 1 night it did not pose an issue. One of the highlights I have to mention, was the ferry ride over, one of the crew gave an absolutely hilarious safety demo.. have not laughed so much in a long time. Very nice chap. I would definitely stay again!

Lovely resort
I enjoyed my stay here as the island itself is so beautiful and it is as simple as that. The room had everything I needed and was clean. Food was good but more options would be better.
