Simply the best place to stay on the island. The beach is perfect with swimming and snorkeling at all tides. The resort is beautifully kept and the staff are brilliant. Shipwreck hut is an amazing spot to watch the sunset.

We stayed for 5 nights. The location being right on the beach was superb. You can swim all tides which is great. Very friendly, helpful staff. The shipwreck bar on the beach was great and we thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous live music on 3 nights we were there.
We had a very relaxing enjoyable time.

Stayed: May 2018, travelled with family

The hosts for this hotel are delightful! It was a perfect blend of relaxation and activity depending on what you wanted. The breakfast that was included each day was enough to last through the day! Lots of fresh fruit and baked breads. The size of the resort is perfect...not too big or so small you feel conspicuous. We felt comfortable socializing during meals and happy hour but could also be off by ourselves. I would definitely go here again!

Room Tip: Stay in the bungalows that share only one wall and not too close to the outside bar

If you are looking for an all inclusive resort with infinity pool and little contact with the locals, this isn't it.
However, if you are looking for a place with outstanding views, snorkeling, and want to quickly become part of the 'family', where 'everybody knows your name', then this is the place. Extremely helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms from where you can step directly on the beach, stunning sunset views from the bar on location made this one of the best locations we ever vacationed at

We stayed for 8 days. We especially enjoyed the snorkling - thank you Aro'a for lending the equipment.
It's a nice small place/ well kept in general with good friendly staff and hosts (Steve, Geraldine and Dexter). I have a few observations about things that might be slightly improved but nothing that warrants mentioning out of context in a review - merits an open handed recommendation for the quality of hospitality.
