The staff were friendly and helpful. There is great snorkeling thanks to the resort creating a marine reserve.

The amazing reef
We were fine at this hotel. It was laid back. The breakfast was a bit ho hum unless you wanted to pay for a cooked meal. The breakfast area is overlooking the water so thats really nice to wake up too. We had room 402 downstairs which was super close for just walking to the beach, yet it was dark andwe didnt want to spend time there, plus it opened onto the garden lawn which is where most of the families exercise the early morning toddlers. Its easy to get towels and snorkels etc even though we brought our own. Sitting on lounges at night near the water was magic and we had nibbles which we brought ourselves for tea some nights. The place IS tired but its not that bad, get an upper room though as the ceilings were higher and didnt feel like a cupboard. We opted to fill in the NO housekeeping card everyday, this gives you a credit of 15$per day which helps at the end. A broom etc is provided to do daily sweep. Happy hour is good but under attended by staff, drinks arent very strong ie cocktails. The reef is divine you can go out a long way and there are so many fish.

Great Snorkeling
Great position for a beach holiday and the food was great in the hotel. Not a lot around the hotel so we had to eat there and very understaffed. Wifi is expensive.
