Breakfast was nice, location and facilities great. Friendly staff lovely atmosphere. Loved the lagoon brilliant snorkeling.
Restaurant food could be better.
Liked the beautiful beach and lagoon. Great for snorkeling and water activities. The water was crystal clear and there were lots of fish.
We could hear babies crying in the next door rooms. We were surrounded by crying children. It would have been good if they put families with young children away from adult guest. Front desk staff were unfriendly. Seemed annoyed when we asked a question. Our 22 year old daughters arranged a return taxi from town with the front desk and the taxi never showed up.
Location was probably the best on the island, especially in regards to the beach. Very pleasant staff.
Lighting in the room was not the best - could do with at least 2 more lights. Air-con units are located in walkway area at a low height. There was a mesh air vent by entry door but unfortunately fastening were broken/missing which was a security issue. Room was 532.
The staff were excellent. They can make your stay!
The safe was broken and didn’t get fixed. I thought the breakfast at $25 was a bit much.
