Stayed in a beach bungalow (207) march 2015. 20 minute speed boat transfer. Room was in great location overlooking the lagoon, where you could snorkel and see all the different sealife. While we were there we saw rays, sharks and so many different types of fish, just amazing. Yes there are areas where improvements can be made but if you...

We chose a water bungalow and were allocated 830 which was lagoon side and had great views of the resort. Our restaurant Maakana was really nice, we were lucky enough to have a table with a view over the sea and a lovely bunch of surf guys at the table next to us who kept us entertained every mealtime!

Food was superb and the bungalow was lovely and cool under trees and cleaned twice a day, tea and coffee in the room plus plenty of water - just perfect.
