Our little paradise

Voyageur2201 - March 2020

What can I say? Everything was perfect! From the warm welcome of the staff the first day to the last day!!! It was a long trip (3 planes and 1 boat) but it was really worth it. The island is so beautiful. We spent our days swimming and snorkeling in crystal waters, we saw sharks, stingrays, turtles, hundreds of colorful fishes. We had a great vacation! I recommend this hotel and we will surely come back in the future.
