10/10 Exceptional

Overall wonderful experience. My daughter picked going here again over other vacation in SE Asia. Just after booking the trip, my wife broke her ankle. The paths are not scooter friendly, but that was not a top priority when we were picking a vacation spot. She healed enough before we left that she was able to swim, and see her favorite animal, the sea turtles. Which was our top priority. Excellent local wildlife on land and in water. Very convenient snorkeling out your front door.

The resort and surroundings could be a bit cleaner. Food is average but there are a couple of other dining options a few minutes away. Land and boat transfer were poorly arranged by the reservation office but we managed to transfer by ourselves (very easy, lots of taxis and boats available at/from airport to jetty). The best part is the gorgeous beach with crystal clear waters…a dream come true!

Burning plastic toxic smell permeated most of resort including inside units We were forced to leave early after waking up both days with bad headaches Status of refund unclear This seems to be standard operating procedure on the island Also smells of sewage and gas

6/10 Good

The location is paradise and great for a few days but the property is tired and needs a lot of work. The food at the restaurant was so average we went to the big island for dinner. If this resort was tidied up it would be a truely magical place to go as the beach is stunning with turtles straight out front .

3 night stay.
Warm welcome at reception and was allowed to checkin an hour before the official tine. Decent sized room. Could have been a little cleaner (hairs in bathroom on arrival). Towels provided. Little fridge although internet only available in restaurant area. Beach towel service and beach chair was excellent. Would stay again for sure.

Stay at paradise
The location is excellent. It is so relaxing. The beach is just few meters away. It is a paradise. The only downside is the food. There are other hotels around with much better food.
