Me and my girlfriend booked this trip after seeing a brochure in a hostel, it all looked very good and as we didn't want to be on a boat for the whole time staying in the resort seemed perfect especially as the guy on the phone gave us $100 discount each when we booked. Upon arriving the rooms we not clean and I'm sure the sheets hadn't even been changed as there was sand in the bed, and turns out we paid more then most people anyway, the 'resort' itself is really run down and alot of it is out of use such as the outside gym which has been left to rust for god knows how long and one night we were sitting outside our room and the street lamp fell down causing power to go out in our room. after asking staff it turns out this 'resort' was a popular family holiday destination until a cyclone hit and it has since been left to rot until koala adventure island came up with the bright idea to aim it at backpackers.
The staff? Well yes they were friendly and pleasant but our tour guide wasn't very good in terms of knowledge of the place or marine life, the guy who drove the boat was also not very knowledgeable either and didn't even know that coral was an animal. The food was average and included in the price but our tour guide was late getting up the last day and we almost had no time for breakfast (which included powdered milk and stale cereal) and the whole day was rushed. The snorkelling was average the stinger suit they glave me had holes in it, the boat needs refurbishing PLEASE DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR pay a bit more money and have a much richer experience with a proper tour.
