    An amazing little island. The staff is excellent and the clean beaches are exceptional. The rooms are not great but they're not bad either. Could improve on the freshness of food but all in all a good experience.

    No TV. No electricity in the afternoon. Anything you may want to watch is outside. Opportunity for good family time.
