Having arrived at the resort, following our rather unique transport (wading thigh deep out to the long tailed boat, carrying luggage above our heads!) we were absolutely captivated by the tranquil location.
Our bungalow, set back from the beach, was a good size, as was the bathroom, with huge shower area. There were complimentary bathroom essentials and bottled water, replenished daily. The gardens leading to the bungalow were well tended and tidy.
Although the swimming pool was being repaired during our stay, there had been an arrangement made for us to be able to use the pool next door, which was lovely, with comfortable sun loungers.
We enjoyed relaxing on the veranda, watching the squirrels in the trees, and after a walk to an inland bar, one day (up a hill, but amazing view!) we saw monkeys in the trees above our heads!
There was a very good choice of food for breakfast, and it was lovely to be able to sit overlooking the beach while enjoying it.
Overall, the resort was very relaxing, with just a handful of small bars/restaurants serving good food.
An absolute must on this holiday, is to try the massage. A fantastic experience, at a very reasonable price.
