Stayed for 2 nights on Tailana and felt well looked after by Herman. Everyone eats together so it has a really friendly intimate feel. Only takes 20 minutes to walk round the island and there is decent snorkelling right off the beach. No beers available...More

Truely a paradise. It takes some stamina to get there, but you certainly get rewarded. Tiny island in the middle of the blueest sea we have ever seen (and whe have seen some islands before). Nice snorkelling around the island and the most beautiful sunsets.....More

I spent there 5 days. The guy running the bungalows is unpleasant and, well, simply put - awfully lazy. I went there diving and I made the deal to have breakfast at 7:30, before first dive. For two days I got breakfast around 9:00, thus...More
