My better half and I recently got married (renewed our vowels after a brief legal ceremony before arrival) on Bokissa. With a small group of family and friends, we were treated more than guests, but family. Jo and Pete have recently taken on the managing gig on the resort, and we had the pleasure of being their little bunny, their...

I confirm what previous reviewers have said. Bungalows are not luxury standard but have all the necessary contents and are well serviced. But we were happy with the accommodation which was separate and beachside. The food was very good. Breakfast was basic continental with full cooked an optional extra. Lunch and dinner were a choice of two items selected each...

This was our second visit this year and just like our first Mama Dee and all of the staff ensured we were welcomed with open arms. There is nothing that they cannot organize for you! The food, sourced locally, daily and fresh is truly outstanding and assists the local economy; nothing from outside the province. Nothing like freshly caught and...
