  • Beautiful beach with stingrays and lemon sharks, plenty of fish and gorgeous sand! This island is a must see!  more »
  • Nice, very small plant with several sharks, rays and a small man-made reef. We have not seen the show. No extra visit worth, but nice to look at when you are already there.

  • I was disappointed with the staff very rude and disrespectful.
  • Great island excellent pool and loads of activities. Room is a bit rundown, mould in bathroom and dated decor, sliding door difficult to open. Mini putt is so run down you can't use it! Being an island, food is limited. Buffet breakfast food was fantastic, however if you like machine coffee, the coffee shop doesn't open till 8am. lunch was almost non existent, just a pie or sandwich from the bar, restaurants and bakery were all shut down. Only one option for dinner each night. First was a la carte restaurant, very pricey. The service was substandard. $42 for a lamb loin, you would expect it to be perfect but sent back twice overlooked and dry! Second night a BBQ buffet single serving only $25 not too bad. Third night takeaway pizza, limited options all remade in the morning (at $25 each I would expect fresh). Nice place just the food aspect was a major let down. Would classify this place as a 3star. Watch out for the free photos voucher....it's a bit of a scam, they didn't have time if you want the free photo but if I paid $100 up front suddenly there was room to do photos and process on time.
  • Small but beautiful island resort!
  • What a fantastic place to get away. Family friendly with loads of activities.
