The Resort itself is clean,rustic & very relaxing. The bungalows are probably the closest thing to the huts on Gilligan's Island that you'll see but are all that you need . If you're not prepared to rough it a bit then Whale Island is not for you.
The water is clean & clear with small coral close to the resort with other snorkelling/dive sites nearby[at a cost]. Kayak hire is also available[again you have to pay].
Breakfast is included in the room rate but lunch/dinner are an extra US$12 & 16 each per day & it's the only food available on the island. However, the meals are plentiful with good variety.
Overall,well worth the effort after the hectic pace of any of the big towns but be prepared for all the extra bits you have to pay up for,it does add up.
