    Internet connection can be slow or non-existent. Meals are buffet, not a la carte with a couple of choices. Food is pretty good. There's nowhere else to eat, so definitely worth booking! Don't remember how much we paid for... More

    Not sure exactly but probably around 10+ units. A wonderful remote paradise that is highly recommended.

    Negatory. There's a really expensive laundry service - you could just about buy a new pair of undies for 4 kina! We hand washed in the bathroom and hung our washing on the veranda. No big deal.
