The setting is similar to a tropical paradise, beautiful but simple rooms, cosy bar/pool are (although we never used it) and excellent food and really nice service staff... however, the managers were a quite arrogant and not very helpful... I don't know if it was because we were almost the only ones at the time after a busy high season, but it could have been a much more pleasant experience if the management was more professional... when asked for WIFI they first negated it but then gave us a stick which didn't work... TV/video never worked (even though we didn't go there to watch TV!)...
The hotel is walking distance from a beautiful natural reserve beach in front of the barrier reef from where all the local colourful boats depart... beach is a bit small for the amount of people that goes there... nonetheless, the coast is beautiful.
It is a hotel with better setting for families with small kids (like the management)... although the rooms are well set for couples!
