We couldn't believe how remote and gorgeous this location was! We had the view, the beach and the three pools practically to ourselves. The dive center where we got our PADI certifcation was on the hotel grounds which was great and the staff was extremely friendly and highly competent! The diving was superb we saw turtles, dolphins and too many fish to name! We got one of the best massages we've ever had at the hotel spa. The rooms were spacious, simply but beautifully decorated and the view was spectacular! The two only draw backs (which didn't bother us but are worth noting) is that you can't access the deserted white sand beach at high tide, and the restaurant good was very good but the service was slow.
