Staff can be a bit disorganized and here seems to be a lack of communication. For example we had been booked into someone else's room, and walked into their belongings.

We loved our stay at this friendly and low key resort. Having our own vehicle with us was a boom as it gave us easy assess to the delights of this amazing sand Island. The variety of sea and landscapes are phenomenal.

We would have drank a lot more if we were just asked. They have to do something about the blinds though, the sun belts through at 5:00am waking...

Swam, walked, viewed scenery, ate, drank and took photos. The 2 and a half days flew past and the friendly staff added to the total enjoyment . Not sure about waking up due to sunup before 5 am but the resort cannot help that and it would be great for early risers.
