Calm and back to nature
Really enjoyed our stay in this low-key resort. Would happily return. No kids facilites as such but here it is all about the beach and exploring nature and the sea in a calm environment!

Disappointed
The accommodation was very dissapointing. The resort was run down especially the Swimming pool. Tiles were falling of it. The room was not very clean; mirrors, bedhead, shower, bedside tables especially needing a proper clean. Good was not of a standard that you would expect of a four star hotel. Staff member forgot to arrange our airport transfer and had to wait 20min whilst it was arranged last minute. Would not recommend.

Tropical paradise
Lovely setting in forest with sea views, facilities at the resort were great, staff were wonderful. Highlights were snorkling off the jetty, kayaking and enjoying restful time by the beach and pool. The beach at the resort was clean and unlike other beaches was free of rubbish. Food was great and reasonably priced. Spent a fun day at another beach close by also run by the resort, encounters with cheeky monkeys which we won't forget. Sad to see so much rubbish on the beach and in the sea which washes up from KK. It's such a shame and risk to the beautiful islands and marine life. The resort seem to take an active role in conservation but I guess there is only so much they can do. Overall we had a wonderful time
