    Very clean Seemed very understaffed when it came to food service Stayed in room k78 Reported a loud ringing sound in the bathroom to service desk and they had the duty manager come and have a quick look at it. Loud ringing again at 4am and 6am -told the front desk but she didn’t even take the unit no down. I hope the next guests aren’t disturbed multiple times throughout the night as we were.

    We liked the location and the resort itself with everything at hand. The only thing we did not like was the condition of the mattress on the bed The mattress seemed to twenty years old as the was no springs left and the pillows were too hard.

    Shipwrecks to dive on were awesome (take your own snorkel and swim across way better than a guided tour. 30 minute walk up the beach. Very very busy in peak season (new years) hiring a 4wd from the resort was the best way to see the island for us and gives you a break from the resort activities. Great swimming for the kids good safe beach swimming.

  • 6.0.Good

    Liked the island and view from our room. Great experiences include catching fish from where your sitting on the island, snorkelling through the wrecks, viewing and feeding dolphins. Food amazing at fire and stone. I didnt enjoy the high charges to all activities. Waiting time for coffee and food up to an hour at times. No ice apart from being served at one bar however i could purchase plenty from Belwar on our 4WD trip on the island. Restaurant and cafe staff werent very helpful
