After reading the mixed reviews I was a little concerned but didn't need to be. The island is tiny and very green, the rooms hidden among the trees. Rooms are in blocks, not very pretty to look at but very spacious inside, very clean , bed looked beautiful with flowers on it. Yes rooms a bit shabby, shower and bathroom certainly need updating, but we left the room before 9 and returned after 6 so not a problem for us. The best thing - the house reef really is amazing. We snorkelled for hours each day, a few currents but most areas were easy going, like swimming in a goldfish bowl! So many fish, saw sharks, eagle rays etc. diving excellent too. Nice mixture of ages and nationalities. Very relaxed, no one dressed up too much, no loud people in bar. Local food and curries very good at lunch and dinner, my son tried the more western food sometimes at the buffet and that wasn't so good. Most of the staff lovely, happy to chat and wanting to help. Definitely not posh or refined, but the place to go for a relaxed holiday, beautiful sand small beaches and the best snorkelling.
