Excellent accomodation and location, close all facilities and ideal beach with Lagoon area. This resort deserves 5 star rating however the restaurant lets the resort down and the owners need to invest in improving this. There are plenty of examples (OTB) of where they need to be when it comes to food quality and variety. Being closed two days a week is just not acceptable when pay this price to stay there,

We had the 2 bedroom villa which was perfect for us with kids. Spacious and beautiful. Great location, easy to walk to market and restaurants. Lagoon is beautiful but no fish, just full of sea cucumbers so it’s not fun to walk in. Walk further down or drive to a different area for tons of fish right at your doorstep.

Loved the individual plunge pools at each bure but could have done with thicker fencing around the room for added privacy. Great venue and service
