Lovely new facilities and close to the beach. Loved the outdoor shower - nice touch. Plug-in insect repellent supplied was fantastic!!

Fantastic family run property with great staff, location, food & drink. Wine was great value here. We stayed in a beachfront bungalow that was just perfect.

We were delighted with our newly renovated cabin, close to the lagoon and infinity pool. The bathroom was beautiful and the Bali style external shower beautiful and serene. The staff were lovely, helpful and accomodating. From our airport greeting to our reluctant farewell we were well pleased with the experience and will be back.

Nice position a easy scooter ride to Ooma beach.

Pros: Would not stay there again until improved.
Cons: Needs maintenance and TLC and cleaning staff need to be more attentive.
Location: Amazing meals at Blue lagoon and Boatshed Ooma beach. Bishops cruises daytrip on lagoon is 5 star! -
Nice beach and good for snorkling but not so much for swimming. Stayed in a one bedroom. Rooms were tired and in need of maintenance - e.g. some slats missing form louvers, the fridge was old and the icebox totalled iced up and some parts inside fridge was missing. Bathroom vanity stained and in need of a good clean. Cups inside room was stained. Bed was good and it was a good size unit. Cleaning is hit and miss - had a ants nest by the toilet and this never got sprayed. Staff are lovely. To be aware of the only items in the kitchenette part of the room is a kettle and a fridge. Restaurant is good but better value to eat at the restaurants at Ooma beach. Definitely not worth the money paid.

Great views from my room. Staff are very friendly

This is a nice quiet place to stay. I was here for 2 days on business but wish I could bring the family. It's half way between the airport and "city centre" so really you need to hire a bike to get around as the shops/restaurants are far apart. If you come here you need to book a day out on a lagoon cruise as that is the best thing about this place. Definitely worth a visit.

Beautiful spot

Great stay. Pretty much exactly like the photos so it lived up to my expectations :) loved using the free kayaks and the excellent snookling right on your doorstep! Only downside was they need to get some newer bikes
