This is a great budget alternative to the expensive resorts. Located on a local island, it doesn't have all the bells and whistles you get at a resort but with the beauty of the natural environment, you don't need it (or if you do, you can get a day pass to a fancy resort!) They offer a fantastic variety of day trips at very good prices and are very accommodating, giving the personal touch. Rooms are very basic with no tv but the air conditioning and wifi in-room are both excellent. (My son could watch youtube.) Rooms were very clean. We didn't get a package with board so the meals were $5 for breakfast, $10 for lunch and $10 for dinner with a buffet style, well worth it. I thought the food was excellent - it was mostly local dishes with different things every meal. Didn't think I'd eat curry for every meal but they had so many different varieties and it was mild so I even had it at breakfast! Staff were always quick to give you water and other drinks as requested. A small local store is steps away so you can buy basics like soap and shampoo etc for low cost. You can get a ferry there really cheaply but with our flight times we needed a speedboat pick-up which was expensive at $50 per person each way (so $200 for my son and me). Staff were all very nice. Overall, we loved it and would return.
