  • 8.0.Very Good

    Beautiful setting , gardens were immaculate , could do with more lighting along the stepped path at night ! Food was a little disappointing, the continental breakfast was often ran out of choices at any time at breakfast , and the main meals tended to be very sauce heavy when more lighter dressings would have been a nicer alternative, otherwise a great location and nice accommodation, pool and beach.

    Good experience.Restaurant is the low point

    Great location. The bungalows are really nice and you have your own private beach, with lounge chairs. You can snorkel from there. Take a kayak. The room itself is also nicely decorated. Main low point was the food in the restaurant. Only a dozen of options and mostly western food (burgers, pizza) without healthy choices or local food either which was a bit disappointing. We were also greeted by the managers who are really nice. Staff was not that friendly, compared to cheaper places we went to in Santo.

    Fantastic location and super friendly staff. Lots of great snorkeling at your doorstep and only a quick 10 min ferry ride into Lugenville. We also used the babysitting service and the lady looking after our daughter was fabulous with her. The hotel also has mountain bikes you can use to explore the island which was great. Overall would highly recommend.

    Charming resort, we would definitely go again

    Very nice resort, well maintained, perfectly decorated and in an amazing location. A few more options at the restaurant and a bit more entertainment in the evenings would totally add to it

    Fremragende resort og snorkling

    Fremragende lille ferie resort, hvor værtsparret sørger for et højt serviceniveau. God snorkling foran hotellet. Dykning er muligt hos nabo, Aore Adventure. Fremragende mad. Vandet i pool var koldt.
