We stayed here last month for 5 nights, it was a return for me, but my girlfriends first visit.
I knew that Tim and Sam would have been working hard in the intervening years but the transformation from beautiful spot with potential to the present set up was hard to believe.
The cabins are little spots of luxury and the bar area is such a wonderful place to sip a cocktail while chatting with whoever is around at the time.
Sam's breakfasts and evening meals are perfect ways to start and finish the days of trekking, snorkelling, sightseeing, turtle watching or just loafing.
The favourite part of our day was rolling out of bed after a long deep sleep and wandering down to swim in Mermaids Pool. What a way to start any day!
Tim and Sam are the perfect hosts with a deep knowledge of the island. Tim is more than happy to take visitors on adventures both big and small.
The boiling lake is a hard day, but a worthwhile one.
We will definitely be back. Hopefully next time it won't take 5 years!
