We stayed at this resort for 5 days in early August, 2014. This is a small resort, but has enough facilities to relax. We spent most of our time taking open water diving lessons. The "Fre-nglish" spoken French instructor was excellent. As others write, the food in this resort is very tastey and cheap. If you want to enjoy nice food with resornable price, this is the resort. The price of their drinks are also resonable. People, staff and guests were all very friendly. And they loved being "quiet".
There is not much to see around the resort, but it was always very nice to walk outside of the resort a bit in the morning. Town people were also very friendly. There is no sandy beach, but rocky shore when the tide is low. But you can still walk along the beach when the tide is low and watch local people catching crabs.
The only negative side was smelly smoke from local people burning garbage. I do not care much about the smoke burning natural things like wood or grass, but the smell of burning plastics bothered us a lot. I know the resort cannot control what local people doing, but it was pitty because everything else was just perfect.
