  • 6.0.Good

    I booked but didn’t stay there as the communication with them was less than reliable. Since they are several miles off shore and require a water shuttle it did not look like I would make an 8AM flight departure.

  • 8.0.Very good

    This island is very back to basics and great if you want to get away from everything. The food offered is wonderful and Neisha and Oli are very accomodating. Remember to bring games to keep you amused and snacks and drinks, as you can only get to the shops by boat.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Des Essen war fantastisch, die Eigentümer superhilfsbereit und freundlich, die Lage der Bungalows ist sehr schön, man schaut aufs Meer und Palmen, der Garten ist schön, der Strand ist ok, leider ist die Anlage in die Jahre gekommen, daher auch schwer sauber zu halten, alles müsste grundüberholt werden. Das Internet ist wie überall langsam oder nicht da, wenn viele eingeloggt sind. Die Korallen vor Ort (Japanese Garden?) kann man vergessen. Aber man kann schöne Bootsausflüge machen und auch die Waltouren sind super von dort aus zu machen.
