The staff at Watercolours are very friendly and the food and drinks are tasty and affordable. The highlight was the fried bananas which were coated in a batter similar to funnel cake batter. A great snack. Also the WiFi was the strongest in the area.

The barat is a good restaurant with good food. The prices are not bad for the island. It's a bit chaotic sometimes but that's everywhere here and it's also its charm. The food is good, the personnel is very friendly and it is professionally organized....More

This is the warmest and kindest staff, I ever met... Expect luxury from the sceneri, not from the bungalow. It's a simple bungalow with a bed, toilet and shower. This is barefoot/flipflop/scuba/snorkel island, and durring Ramadan, things are not going that speedy as you may...More
