Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Enjoyed the quiet environment, access to 2 pools, an area off the beach to snorkel and view the sea life. Friendly helpful staff especially Heleana. Food options very limited with access to a cooked breakfast inconsistent. Lunch menu very limited. Loved the cocktails. Easy access to other resorts, town and activities with a hire car.

Lovely small resort, great location and friendly staff. Pools are fantastic, great reef outside to snorkel. Rooms were a good size, comfy. This resort has a lot of repeat and loyal business, which says a lot. Food at the Anchorage was ok, not great, not terrible but staff are awesome. Birdcage bar is awesome and cocktails were on point. The wifi is useless and I seemed to spend more time trying to get online than being online. All in all a great place to stay for couples, highly recommended.
