This island resort also has many day trippers, however once they gave gone, this becomes like your own private island. Super comfortable rooms, good food and lovely staff. There was even a 3 piece band to keep us entertained with all sorts of music. Plan...More

Not my favourite island as it’s the busiest with tourists. It was kept pretty clean although I did see some plastic in the water which was sad to see. We walked to the other side of the island where it was quieter and more pleasant...More

Estuve con mi familia en Julio del 2018 y fue la experiencia más decepcionante que he tenido entre todos los viajes que hemos realizado. El mar está muy sucio, lleno de basura plástica, se ve más basura que peces. Muy triste ver cómo se deteriora...More

It was a very busy time to visit, snorkeling wasn’t very good, we had to dive in life jackets and we didn’t have flippers. The lunch was good though.

Full of plastic bottles and garbage. No bounty island at all. We would not recommend this place. You swim in between the rubbish.

a quaint little island with not much to do but sun bath and swim, yet it will be a holiday that you will fondly remember

We did not have intention to get into water. Just lay down to kill our time. Don't forget to bring your own mat and food!

We did a day trip here, the water was full of rubbish, returned as soon as we could to our hotel. Not worth going.

This is a beautiful island and we had a fantastic afternoon there. Sleeping, reading and an afternoon champagne on a lounge overlooking the ocean and chilled out music in the background ... all while the teenagers snorkeled!

Yes there are choices of villas for 2 very nice and close to everything. Cheaper options are backpacker type, still ok but lots of stairs to them 😎
