Public areas are shabby and our exclusive (fairly expensive), beautiful chalet looked out at a row of rubbish bins instead of the seashore!
Very welcoming, efficient staff and the accommodation is beautifully appointed inside the chalets. When the boats stop in the evening, it is your own desert island; very peaceful, relaxing and romantic.

Clouds of mosquitoes on the sunset walk and the unfortunate washing up of plastic and other pollutants, presumably from neighbouring islands or the mainland. Staff did however work hard in the mornings to minimise the eyesore.
The friendliness and competence of the staff, the setting and snorkelling (beautiful fish). The rooms were very comfortable and the air-conditioning very welcome. Good food.

Paying €260 for one night, you would expect there to be electricity (and so air-con) available 24/7. That one male staff member confessed that the generator is old and in need of replacing does not excuse the basic, scheduled - they give you a sheet listing the down time at least - lack of power twice during the day. Also the menu was limited to c.8-10 dishes and of that 3 were unavailable to me. No local seafood and, again, €260 demands more than an, admittedly tasty, beefburger.
Staff were pleasant and attentive.

The biggest problem may be the electricity suspension in specific time intervals. We think the resort should really consider improve this.
Meeting extremely kind and thoughtful staff at the first moment on the island who kindly accepted our early check-in. Staff at the restaurant was all very friendly, we really enjoyed the time chatting with them. We felt that the staff at the resort really care for customers' needs. Though the view of the beach was so-so, it was still a great experience to play snorkeling there to have a look at the beautiful coral reef and star fish and etc. The villa we were living in was just amazing, the entire house was made of wood and it was so pretty and relaxing inside-and-out. The island at daytime was filled with crowds, but it became so much quiet after 5 pm and you can truly enjoy the beautiful peaceful island then.
