Idyllic location. Resort is not plush, would benefit from a revamp of facilities, and the restaurants are basic, but lots to do, and lots of fun to be had if you go on the understanding this is not a 5 star resort. For the cost of the holiday this exceeded expectations. Lots to keep kids and adults amused; great beach,...

We just got back from a 7 night stay in a 1 bedroom garden terrace. The room was ideal with two small children as we were very central to everything (close to the reception building) but still surrounded by beautiful gardens. The room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. We used a cot which was old style but...

Our trip was mostly positive. Our room was lovely and clean and we had plenty of lovely, fluffy towels each day. There was also plenty of room for all of us.

This was a surfing trip for me, so the location of Malolo island and the price was what made this "very good" for me. Would struggle to say this place is romantic as there are kids crying everywhere as it is a kids resort. I recommend reading the negative reviews so you are prepared for the downside of this resort....
