Private island with beautiful views and tranquility. A fantastic marine reserve that you could swim or kayak to and swim with amazing variety of fish. It was like swimming n an aquarium. Food was terrible!! Food service was bad, wait time for food was painfully long. Bar drinks only looked good, quality disappointing.

Property was really clean, great beach, overall friendly staff. The guys working at the water activities both were great! Our favorite part was the couple of cats roaming around the hotel gardens and bar. It added sweetness to the hotel :) The things we did not like: one of us is vegan and there was very little options. Especially when they had buffet dinners. Also, the bar staff was overall unfriendly and extremely slow. Also, it would have been nice if waiters came to the pool and served drinks there. Hated getting out of the pool and asking the bartender for a drink, and getting a “give me some time” reply. Especially when the bar was virtually empty.
