We had the most relaxing time at Fatboys. Nothing was too much. The food was excellent and massive. The room was very comfortable but, most of all, Glenn and his staff were exceptional at making us welcome and meeting our needs. Plenty of things to do and all great. Have to go back!

I spent 2 nights at Fat Boys in Sept 2016 with my wife and 6 yr old daughter. We were greeted off the boat with flower necklaces and cold juices...welcome to paradise! We stayed in a semi detached bungalow with a nice small private beach out the front. Nice rooms with (essential) mosquito nets and the only in room fridge...
