Staff from hotel was very helpful and in great mood every time, offering help anytime we needed. Beautiful island, I definitely come back one day. Thank you.

wunderbares Hotel um sich zu erholen

Pros: Die Lage ist ausgezeichnet um sich zu erholen.
Cons: Fitness Anlage verbessern.
Location: Das Hotel befindet sich auf einer sehr kleinen Insel. Von hier aus sind Safari Ausflüge möglich.
Wir haben 18 wunderbare Tage genossen. Das Angebot im Hotel ist klein aber fein. Wir haben geschnorchelt, sind mit dem Kanu um die Insel gerudert und haben die wunderschöne Poolanlage genossen.
