My husband and I stayed here for our Honeymoon In November 2017. Love that it is on the main island, 15min car ride into town. The overwater bungalows were my absolute favorite part of it. being able to have our private bungalow with a private deck. It was amazing I LOVED it. the staff was very friendly at the hotel and very helpful with information and tour packages. Small market is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Stayed forvout Honeymoon in July 2018,lovely hotel,good beach location and over water bungalows extremely nice.The best bit about here is that it’s unique in its location,being on the beach just down from the capital(not worth going to at all,very sparse,one cafe,a couple of pearl shops,supermarket can all be done in 30 minutes) is that the hotel is tired in a couple of places but this adds to its charm(it is being shortly upgraded to the brand O within Sofitel)and we will miss that above all,plus the staff(helps if you engage in French)are lovely.One point to miss is going to the Private island (9000 Local currency) its a waste of time,nowhere near the class of Marara beach,slow,tortoise service,Coral Gardens snorkelling is only the same as you can see off Marara beach,it was such a disappointment.But we would return here tomorrow in a heartbeat.The new general manager is a nice guy,with vast a.m. points of experience ,gets things done promptly,we where upgraded to a water bungalow and appreciate the gesture from ourselves we both thank you and wish you every success with your upgrade programme...regards Tony and Jane

So relaxing and beautiful … the staff is so friendly … loved the breakfast buffet …. the snorkeling right in front of the rooms is amazing … non-chlorinated hot showers … great air conditioning … walk to fabulous Matira Beach.

We spent the afternoon here to have an amazing lunch. The views are fantastic however the hotel was busy which we were surprised about, it looked bigger in the pictures.

Staff were very friendly and accommodating.

We would recommend a day pass.
