Great quiet resort. Well maintained and looked after. Pools are clean and quiet. Staff were awesome. Rooms are great. We stayed in 2 bed room 32, which was a good size and aircon in all rooms. Road is a bit busy over Xmas period. We like this part of the island best and snorkelling equipment is free. Free tropical breakfast and filtered water in the rooms is a big bonus. Would definitely recommend. We will stay here again. Enjoy the early morning rooster wake up call. At least you get lots of day to chill out in the sun.
