So it's a little expensive, but that's the only downside to this place. We were here for three days and had the most wondeful time. The staff we just amazing from tracking us down at 10:30pm to come to opur room and sing us a song and present my fiance with a birthday cake, through to the eco centre, the fish feeding everyone was fantastic.
We stayed in the more expensive ocean view rooms which were grand. If you want a nice budget option there's nothing wrong with the jungle view, family of ours stayed in them. The nice part is despite having you on an island there's reasonably priced food, free cocktails in the evening and a more up market seafood restuarant if required, all of which are great.
Obviously if beach, pool, snorkeling etc aren't your vibe you may find the location a little dull. Would recommend for those who are thinking of engagement venues! Possibly after breakfast is delivered to you by boat?!
