Everything about the resort was amazing, from the very friendly staff, the food (both italian and thai) the rooms, the grounds. It was heavenly. Andy offered to arrange a number of activities and had excellent suggestions.
The water was too shallow to swim when we were there, actually quite hot. But if you go out to the reef it is decent snorkeling right off shore.
The only problem with such a small beach is that it can lead uncomfortable situations with other guests, not the fault of the hotel at all. But there is no way to avoid unruly children, if they are there, or other guests that feel it is clothing optional. By no means are these deal breakers, we just opted to not spend as much time as we would have liked enjoying relaxing on the gorgeous beach.
Also at the edge of the grounds is the entrance to the Pirates Bar, we enjoyed a low key night there and was pleased that the cliff kept the music noise from our room on the other side.
