This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves.

Review:   This resort is best for those who wany more privacy as there are only 20 rooms available on the island. The private beach has significantly less people than resorts on the main land. The views are stunning and I heard this resort is the best to see marine life. I've seen baby sharks swim past the room and swam with the fishes at the coral next to the rooms. The 2 major issues here are the wifi and the breakfast. The wifi is constantly going out randomly and makes it frustrating trying to do work or do research about the island. The breakfast is lackluster. There were small flies at the fruit/cold station. Also, there was no toaster for the bread station. There was no chef at the egg station when we arrived (we were the first guests at 7am). They later came to our table to take orders for eggs but it took much longer than it should have because at this point there were multiple tables seated. Luckily, we are able to have breakfast at the mainland resort Sofitel Marara. We are going to try the breakfast there today.

Review:   Pure Paradise. Overwater bungalows are a must so you can snorkel around your room. Quick boat ride to the main island as well to access Sofitel Marara.

Review:   Staff went to every length to increase the quality of my stay. The views and beach access was spectacular and later in the evening they usually have different performances. Bit far from the historical sites but close to the marara beach. Room service was very well managed and come at later times in the morning and early afternoon to clean, restock the mini bar and increase sleeping-in potential, making for a mostly undisturbed stay if you explore and participate in activities. The breakfast was wonderful with many tropical varieties available. It is also cheaper to take a taxi from vaitape, Versuses the hotel's boat transfer, which only becomes necessary if your plan to stay on the private island. The staff speak at least 2+ languages so language barrier is not as much of an issue. Bugs did not present an issue here as I've only ran into 2 mosquitos during my time here. I will definitely be returning.
