I was in a work outbond so we had the whole place reserved. Actually we had a different cottage but considering our activity (ofcourse we would be loud enough at night) we pick this cottage in the end. Fadhila Cottage are the only cottage in the island, so we wont bother anyone else.

My only complaint is a too expensive instant noodle! Normally it would cost me 60 cent, yet i was charged almost 2,5$

Been in a better cottage

Room Tip: There are two option of room. One is a beach view room, and one is more quite one far away from the dock.

After coming from the superbly run resort at Poki Poki we were very disappointed by Fadhilla. There was no welcome on arrival and apart from being given keys we were left to discover a dirty bathroom with cockroaches and no running water. The main bedroom was better with a nice terrace and hammock.
Trying to get information about anything is difficult and Ida on front desk is disinterested and at times plain rude.
Meals on day one were quite good with fresh fish but the second day was horrible with poorly cooked pasta and rock hard pizza. Breakfast is average.
We did a snorkelling trip with a private boat that arrived back an hour and a half early and we weren't taken to some of the places promised. The reef we did visit however was beautiful and the snorkelling in front of the resort is really good.
We didn't like the atmosphere, attitude of many of the staff nor the majority of the food and would not stay again. There are other resorts working hard to make your visit special and this isn't one of them.

Almost all cottages are located beachfront. There is ok snorkelling and swimming from two small beaches. Sunset is nice, plenty of comfy beachbeds, and the hammocks and pingpong table are a plus. Several tours are offered for fair prices and I especially recommend the fishing village tour (tour 5). Tour prices vary between rp 400.000-525.000 per boat (shared up to 6-8 people).

Breakfast was very nice, always fruits, an egg and a pancake. Water, coffee and tea are freely available all day. Lunch was very minimal, so might be good to bring snacks. Dinner is plenty, but the quality varied quite a lot (we strongly disliked some herbs they used in many vegetable dishes). Some snacks can also be bought there.

The (beachfront deluxe) rooms were ok. Water doesn't always work and our bathroom was rather small and dark. The bed smelled musty which was rather unpleasent, but other than that the cottages were very nice. Musquito nets in good shape.

As a sidenote: in the four days we were here the place was overbooked three times... Bookings go through Dadang in Ampana and apparently this doesn't really work well. Management at Fadhila is very friendly and helpful though and did the best they could to mediate the situation.

Nice and clean bungalows with view on the ocean. Really nice corals are in front and on the sides of it so you'll see plenty of fish. The food is ok but definitely not amazing. Don't expect a quiet place as it is in front of a village where there's a loud mosque, full blast music and now and then the occasional chainsaw. Why the resort itself decides to build a new bungalow in the middle of the high season, so they are sawing wood for hours and hours at 10 meters from the beach is also quite a mystery to me. But besides the noise it was an nice stay.
