First and most important: Our total cash was stolen out of the safe. We had two double rooms and after the money was stolen out of the first safe, the thiefs tried to open the other safe a few days later (but weren't successful this time). We noticed that after coming back from a snorkeling trip the safe was blocked due to failed attempts of entering the pin code. Most likely the theft took place during our first snorkeling trip, so we highly recommend taking your valuables with you. We brought it up to the management, they started investigations, but didn't succeed in clarifying the situation. Disappointingly we weren't offered any kind of redemption at all. Apart from that, the beach was awesome and perfect for our two little children. The rooms and daily buffet were ok.

Our room is just right in front of the white sandy beach! With the closed proximity, we could spent time morning or evening or night enjoying the nature and let the sound of the waves accompany good night sleep. There are many squirrels and monkeys around the area wondering and looking for food... and they meant no harm. For our 3 days 2 nite stay, we pre-booked and paid upfront for full meal plan throughout the stay then we realized there were restaurants within walking distance. One more good point to make is the transport between mainland to the Island was well managed by the hotel

Nice beach, big land area but sadly under utilised. The resort's location has so much potential but sadly the place is not well built nor maintained. Noted the sewage discharge from the far end of the resort into a small stream that feeds directly into the sea. Bad smell from this end. I don't know what the regulations are for discharge of sewage into the sea are but the resulting algae blooms kill the coral.

PIR has beautiful beaches and clear sea water. the food is also delicious and there are many options.Room are just comfortable. staff very helpful and always smile especialy from the restaurant & receptionist.pool clean. only the resort area has dry leaves as in ever swept. there is a new construction underway in the starting area to the PIR. looks unattractive with such seemingly irregular conditions. overall, we enjoy staying at PIR & will come again!
