    We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Fatboys, the staff are all friendly and helpful special mention to Manu the manager, Lia & Roderick our boat driver/tour guide/fishing god. Thank you all for making our stay wonderful including all of you whose names we don’t know. The bungalow was clean and well set up the bed was very comfortable the view amazing. The fresh seafood is cooked perfectly, the banana fritters are good for dessert. The snorkeling on the doorstep is some of the best we have seen, overall a wonderful relaxing holiday. Can’t wait to go back.

    A slice of paradise

    The perfect piece of paradise for tropical islands in a remote location with great people. The staff at Fatboys are so kind, welcoming, and will help you with anything you need. The food is fresh and the drinks are cold. We stayed in the over the water bungalow which is their newest and nicest room. Three of the four walls are floor to ceiling windows to see the stunning views. You fall asleep and wake up to the relaxing sounds of the waves crashing on the beach. The room can be fully closed to prevent water intrusion during rain. It has air conditioning, electricity, and hot water. The best part is you just jump off your private dock and have great snorkeling right off the room. Do not expect to have good wifi access. You can connect at the restaurant but it is slow and spotty. It was nice to disconnect.
