Great buffet BBQ, a real spread so go hungry. We enjoyed a drink at the pool before dinner, then the feast which was followed by a show of dancing and some fun with sarong tying demo etc. Then delicious desserts and once again a spread! Great local musicians with background music

Welcoming staff, good family meals, lots of tables and open late. Nice variety of food on the menu, lots of local seafood. Meals were good size so we weren't able to get to dessert, but it looked nice.

The person serving was bad tempered and rude. Got the impression that they were not listening to what I was ordering. Even remaining pleasant when placing my order, the server had the audacity to reprimand me. In essence I ordered a single shot soy flat white but for some or other reason the server was set in her mind that... More
