All in all this is a nice place. Few things you should know though... It is on the "isolated side" of the island (30/45 min. By boat from Tonsai). There is a few restaurants along this stretch of beach (jasmine serves nice food) and along the same beach are a few other resorts (like Holiday Inn). A small supermarket next door and thats pretty much it. Some people will love it because of its quiet location, and some people might not love it for the very same reason. Its definitely not a place for party people. From the hotel you can make a recommended walk to Tonsai Beach, the only village on the island. Will take you a couple of hours, but it is rewarding. Snorkeling from the beach is not really good. But if you go for a snorkeling tour its amazing. Speedboats and local fishingboats offer their services right outside the hotel!
They have a few different categories of rooms. Ranging from normal (and average) standard rooms to beach front villas (although they are not on the beach). Since july 2014 they have a new block. Nice and specious rooms. 2nd floor has partly seaview. The pool is small but nice. The beach is nice as well. The hotel offers plenty of beach chairs. The interior of the rooms is basic in the standard rooms and it gets better in the villas and the new block. I wouldn't advertise it as a luxury beach resort, but it sure has charm.
The reception offers wifi and the restaurant offers a good breakfast. People who complain about this breakfast are spoiled in my opinion. The other food offered is good! To me the staff was very friendly!
All in all my experiences here are good! On a sunny day its a tropical paradise!
