Everything is perfect in this hotel! Well-maintained beautiful territory, a variety of dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very polite staff who will always solve any problem. Separately, I would like to mention the delightful and fascinating animation and work with the audience, which is carried out by one talented person, whose name is Snoop. The highest class!!!

I want to thank all the staff of Sunny Island, for their attention and care to the guests of the hotel, Vera speaks Russian and will always prompt and help! It is also very pleasant that the hotel provides free accommodation in a suite for a day. The beaches on the island's territory are very beautiful and spacious! I also liked the water activities and various sports activities. I really liked the evening fire show that shows Snoop it is a breathtaking sight

I went to rest with my mother and friend - I liked it, the resort is good. It is a pity that there is little activity and entertainment right now due to the virus, but what is important - there is an animator Snoop who prepares great shows. I liked the fire show very much - it was mesmerizing. Also we likened stretching by Snoop. In general, I received pleasant emotions and good relaxation.
