Gorgeous hotel in a perfect stunning place. The beach front villas are lovely and has everything you want for the perfect holiday room. A pool and a jacuzzi! Relaxing veranda on the beach and an outside bathroom/shower. The diving and snorkeling is fantastic and Hamdan (I'm not sure if that's the correct spelling of his name) was excellent.
