“world class resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2011

A lively reef with the clearest water and an estimated thirty thousands fishes in single shoal
and some bigger fish feeding on them, all in snorkelling range.
An abundance of turtles without a single jellyfish to be seen.
A variety of stunning accommodations that can sustain 10-15 guests.
An exquisite "special fish fillet" like nothing we have ever tasted.
Fantastic management and the best attitude toward tourism we have encountered around here.
We spent 10 days in a a truly great place, and can honestly say we had the perfect island experience.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2011

Had a great one week holiday on the resort.
The food is mainly based on the fresh food that is locally available, and the tast is superb.
Just outside the resort there is a reef, which is good for snorkeling, however during our stay the visibility was not always perfect (rainy season).
No Jellyfish or sandflies during our stay.
The cottages are basic, and for guests who are expecting luxury, not good enough.
For us however it was no problem at all. Decent musquito nets, and a cold shower (one of the rooms does have heating) The electricity runs only from 1800 to 2100 (or longer upon request) but that adds to the charm of the stay (drinking beers by candlelight)

To summarize:
for good food, friendly staff, relaxing stay blue cove is a good option
if you expect a 5 star resort for less, don't go.

Room Tip: there is one room with hot water shower.
