We loved mostly everything Be careful of the stairs in the loft at night. If you r older go for beachfront or bungalow Loved snorkelling with nurse sharks Also if in bungalow when u enter the water the last few stairs r very slippery. Make sure u wear reefs shoes Plenty of fish rays etc ju st o outside your room. Great diving school. Heaps of sharks n fish there too. We were a bit disappointed with the sandbank snorkelling. No fish there better at resort. Overall fab stay Loved the staff n food too Pristine
