Nothing beats this exquisite family-friendly place. Beautifully appointed casas (chalets), well equipped and amazing views. Superb pool-side restaurant and bar on site with phenomenal sea views. This is a must for any beach lovers to soak up the Beauty, swim in a tropical sea and have an abundance of activities available right on site.

My family & I booked at Archipelago Resort for a fun holiday & our wedding. I spent a year communicating with the brilliant Priscilla via email to organize our wedding - she was extremely helpful, reassuring & full of great ideas. Our holiday was absolutely amazing, but our wedding day was extra special. Priscilla, Marcial & the rest of the great team at Archipelago Resort went to great lengths on the day to organize our wedding on the beach, with a stunning arch that was beautifully decorated accompanied by a champagne and snack bar for after the ceremony. The dinner was delicious, which included peri peri chicken, Prawns, salad ...the works, which was followed by a delicious cake made by Priscilla herself. I highly recommend this Resort for both a family holiday & a beautiful location for a destination wedding. Thanks again to everyone at the Resort for being so hospitable, friendly & helpful.

Even more than the magical localisation (front beach and next to a diving center), the spacious and very clean casa, archipellago is great place to stay thanks to Pricilla who will make you feel like home! If you need anything or have any questions, she’ll have the answer. For example, I told her I would like to have a dress made, she took me to the best place to buy fabric and to the best tailor on the market! Thank you Pricilla for everything, it was such a pleasure to meet you and stay at archipellago!
