    It was an amazing experience for me and my boyfriend! However, the staff could smile a little more...it got to the point where I didn’t even want to speak to them and my boyfriend had to. Also when we went to get our kayaks she told us we could kayak to the wrecks and snorkel there, not once did the lady tell us we needed our snorkel gear from there or anything! So me and my boyfriend walked all the way to the wrecks and everyone knows that is not a short walk! We dragged our kayak with us just to get there and find out that we had to collect our snorkelling gear from the place on the other side that we just came back from!!! There was only one staff member that treated us properly without any attitude! But besides that the island is beautiful and is an amazing getaway spot!

Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 657 reviews

Staff were very friendly and punctual. It was raining the entire day but it did not affect our snorkeling experience which was breathtaking. Kayaking was also a great experience even if it was windy. Our guide still brought us to the dessert where the sand dunes are and let us try to slide down even if the sand were wet. Not much speed but atleast we did it. Yay! It was so much fun.

I was skeptical reading 1 star reviews but trust me this trip is way more than it advertises, of course in a good way. Staffs are really helpful and they will make sure you have the best experience. My experience was in winter so there were not many people. Can't comment anything about summer. But i'll definitely come for it again.

Friendly staff, well organised, everything on time, good facilities, reasonable price, and so many more enjoy We had an unforgettable experience The tour guide Azaiah was very friendly and kind to everyone
