Loved staying at Magic Reef. Nice spacious bungalows with a beautiful view. Walk straight onto the beach. Great pool. Friendly owners and other guests. Air conditioning which is a must in the summer. Great location with restaurants and beach bars just down the road. Only drawback was in room options for eating and drinking were a bit limited.

Very beautiful location, well presented villas, charming staff and owners. Excellent pool and beach area which is ideal for watching the amazing sunsets. We used the bungalow as a base to explore the island with a hire car. There are a few restaurants and bars in walking distance and town is only a short drive or bus ride away.

Absolutely loved our stay! Bungalows were beautiful - clean, good size, had everything you need. On the beach, nice and quiet and relaxed. Nancy and Angela were super helpful and friendly. Highly recommend getting the platter, a bottle of wine and enjoying the amazing west coast sunsets. Can't wait to come back!!
