Me and 3 other girlfriends stayed in November. I was a bit worried because the weather hadn't looked too good, but we arrived on the cat in the evening and was greeted by a singing band as he boat pulled up to the marina.
We boarded the Bula bus and were given a quick tour of the resort. There was some mix up with the villas, but the problem was sorted out quickly and without a fuss.
Accommodation - Armstrong Villa
Air conditioned rooms, but the living area was not air conditioned.
We spent 5 nights, the location of the villa is a tiny bit inconvenient, it's not as close to the pool and restaurants as the buries and the resort villas, but it was nice for a walk after dinner,
One afternoon, at about 4pm, we smelt the stench of sewerage. It was not too big of a problem and only affecte the villa area, as we decided to go to the pool where the smell had left by then.
The pool is great and so is the beach, you can order drinks and they'll be slivers to you in the pool or of you're soaking up the sun in the beach.
We took a snorkelling trip (reef safari I think) and it was lovely. Only problem is when all the other resorts turn up with children screaming and laughing. But just dunk your head underwater and you're in paradise.
All non-motorised activity is free of charge, e.g. Snorkelling, kayaking, paddle boarding....
If you take a walk up past the chapel and follow the path to the right at the junction,you'll find yourself having a very peaceful walk towards The Gallery, a quaint shop with souvenirs and hand made items amongst other things- must see! We were lucky to have a staff member show us, definitely ask! The Gallery isn't much advertised, but worth a visit!
We had an excellent time, an definitely will go back! If it was great before the renovations, can't wait to see what it's like now!
