A Waste of Money On the day after arrival the Rep encouraged us all to go to his Welcome Meeting. Now we all know this is always a Sales Platform. But we always go to try to learn, and well, you never know, there might just be something for you… And here was this trip. It sounded ok. Boat cruise... More

What a beautiful place. Paradise is an understatement. This is the trip to do. Everything is included, food, drink, ice cream, towels, fish doctor, sea spi, snorkelling etc. You can just walk into the sea and the coral reefs and fish are beautiful. If you don't snorkel you can use the sea spi. It's like a surf board with a... More

We went on this trip yesterday 6.2.17 the sea was choppy going out to the island but the island is absolutely beautiful with white sandy beach and lovely sun cannopys which you do need as it was very hot being a little inland. Our trip was expensive and we had no Rep who came with us unlike other tourists but... More

Excellent day out. Being on this island you could be on any paradise island in the world. The beach was lovely soft sand with crystal clear water and great snorkelling.
