1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Avoid this place
Owners / management should be ashamed of the condition of this place. Resort: Location looked like a tsunami had just passed through. Totally unkempt, clearly no maintenance has taken place in a long time and garbage everywhere. Bungalows: 8 out of 18 bungalows were considered habitable by the resort’s staff. The rest were “broken”, which we found out after asking to be moved to a different bungalow as the shape of ours was bad and located next to the resort’s garbage burning site. Service: Staff consisted of 10 youths who appeared to have barely hit puberty and were managed by a hardly communicating man who appeared to be in charge as he collected receipts and counted cash. None of the staff spoke more than 5 words of English, music was being played at all times and they had clearly never received instructions on what constitutes customer service. One of the worst stays I have ever had.

3/5 Okay

A wonderful island which need a good maintainance of the resort . No electricity during the day gives very limited choice of food for in house guests. Due to the fact that the island is a gem, overall we still enjoy our stay.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We arrived by ourselves in their island and when we wanted to check in they didn’t expected us so nothing was ready but the worst it is so doggie, rubbish every where and so old. It’s look like we were in a bad movie, so we decided to don’t stay in this place. I think this place should never be proposed for booking because it’s not correct.

Amazing natural beauty - run down basic resort
The Bungalows are run down and in a terrible condition. So is most of the resort. Staff are friendly and the island is breathtaking but we had no electricity at night which made for a super hot stay as the fan wasn’t working.

One hotel on the island. Not many people.
One hotel on the island. There are not many people. Good snorkeling. Expensive food. The bungalows are old. Minimum of comfort.
