Great Value for Money!!
We had no idea that the room would have such a great view!! Beautiful!! The room itself was very spacious, modern and spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed. The free breakfast was simple yet very adequate. The wait staff were fantastic and friendly. The dinner menu was small, yet everything was beautifully presented. The Ika Mata was the best we’ve ever tasted 10/10 for that! We totally enjoyed our short stay

Excellent Start to our Raro Trip
This is place is truly a gem. Excellent service, deal of a happy hour & great location. Phoebe helped us book bikes and gave us great advice via the front desk. Kayaks & snorkeling gear was provided but weather was too windy for us to use. Restaurant has okay breakfast included but good dinner. Room was spacious and bathroom was recently redone. We were on the bottom floor & enjoyed being able to just walk out to the pool or bar. Very quiet and relaxing. We would recommend staying here, and we hope to return soon!

Great , clean and modern property . Needed tap repairs and not enough instructions for using the TV and cold showers as the hot water took a long time to come through. You really needed a hire car to go around the Islands and need to book tours before you arrive as they were always booked out.
