Perfect place for those who prefer quite places and meditation. Very nice personel, and if some services are different from big international hotels - you will appriciate this homemade slowliness and eccept the natural rhythm of life. Not the place for those looking for animation or discotheques. Other referencies contain enough information, what I would add is about snorkeling. I was disappointed (and it was my error) on the first days as the tides achieve 3.5 m of level difference and during the low tide you have to walk 1.5 km with reef shoes (beware of urchins!) and during the high tides if it's windy you risk while entering or getting out of the sea. So the best way is to find a convenient entrance (there are some) and explore the area benefitting from the low tide (try to get the tides schedule, they are published in some boocklets for tourists). The most interesting zone is rather far from the shore, but there are also some nice reef blocks near the coastline. You have a chance to observe the life of a unoque tide zone and it's different from what you usually see in the Read Sea or elsewhere. Very nice impression and cordial atmosphere.
