The best thing about this rather run down resort is the location. It sits right on the best part of the beach, with palmtrees sloping out over azur water.
The huts vary greatly in size and view, so make sure to get a nice one. Most of them are relatively well situated, close to the beach. Ok garden surrounds the huts. Breakfast was adeqate.
The main problem of this resort - if you can call it that - is the lack of maintenance. Things just fall apart, an few seem to care. What may have been a fun place, now only seems dated and hippie-like. The beach bar/cafe is best avoided, not least due to its not particularly friendly staff and the somewhat sloppy hygiene regime.
We were surprised to see so many guest children hanging around the beach cafe, in what looked like a stale old hippie-herbal environment, but children were well looked after, it appeared. There is a small pool for children nex to the bar.
After renting bikes and visiting some other resorts on this beautiful little island, we realised that there were several resorts which were much nicer options.
The lady that seems to run things on Monkey Island was very helpful and able, but she could benefit from some help in running things more up to date. Internet was free.
