I spent 2 nights on the island with my two teenage children. It is a stunning place and the room was comfortable. It was fully inclusive except for alcohol, but there are limited activities. Plenty to do for just 2 days, though the squid fishing was cancelled at the last minute on both days. There seemed to be quite a but if engine trouble with the boats, but somehow that was part of the fun. The snorkelling was great, but the water off the beach was too cloudy to snorkel. We could make free use of the canoes, but beware they are v heavy. A bit of litter on the beach too - I saw someone with a bin bag, but no real effort to clear it up, and no signs to ask people to keep it clean.
A real highlight was the turtle sanctuary - we were able to hold 3 day old babies, 1 year olds, and fully grown adults.
We had a fabulous time but found the lack of info about delays to snorkelling a bit frustrating. The buffet was delicious - try the fried bananas! Staff were friendly and eccentric. Overall a great trip, but don't expect five star service!
