We had a great time here from oktober 15th till oktober 30th. Room 3029 was situated in an nice area near the pool. All the meals are excellent. Room was good but 4* is maybe to much. Overall service is 4 to 5*.

Everyone was so friendly and helpful, we felt relaxed as soon as we arrived. We were recommended to this hotel and were not disappointed. The staff could not do enough and we will certainly be going back. The setting is great and the variety of fish on the home reef are amazing.

We couldn't resist coming back after such a lovely holiday last year. The staff remembered us and gave us a wonderful greeting. Once again we had an enjoyable 2 weeks. The management & staff are all very smart, hardworking and polite and never too busy to talk to you. We hope to return at some time.
