Private island with beautiful views and tranquility. A fantastic marine reserve that you could swim or kayak to and swim with amazing variety of fish. It was like swimming n an aquarium. Food was terrible!! Food service was bad, wait time for food was painfully long. Bar drinks only looked good, quality disappointing.
