Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 160 reviews

The staff are very friendly, and can speak several language including English. When you get on the boat you are told where to sit just while the boat gets to the island then once your there you can move around the catamaran. This is just for safety. Once you get to the Island you can get a small boat to the island or stay on the boat. We stayed on the boat. We had paella and got given tokens for drinks. We then went snorkeling. We stayed more near the island for a good few hours then went back to the main land. We loved it and would recommend this trip. We'll worth the money!

3rd day in a month. Always the same service and quality ... congratulations to the whole team
