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:   Stayed here back in August of 1994. Super nice staff, weather was epic. The land was lush with vegetation and fruit. We snorkeled the night we arrived, by the rock jetty. Took a hotel chartered boat to Body boarded the reef passes. Fun little right out in front to the left that peels like a horseshoe. Holds a 6-10’ swell. The left was fun too with the right swell. I worked with Navy Seal, George McGinnis who dynamited all the Tahitian Atolls to create passage for the navy vessels. (WWII) this warm water paradise dates back. Funny: The local surfers wanted some of our gear, we said no and they said “you surf here no more.” My buddy later gave them a rash guard so we could surf there. Ha! Additionally, I met a really special girl there who was on the trip with us and later became my girlfriend. The tranquil environment enhances any social romance potential. (We counted 19 shooting stars on any given night.) I will always miss the magic of this place. I sure hope they keep it underdeveloped!

Review:   Enjoyed the staff and food. Breakfast is a bit overpriced But I've wrong a nice experience. 5 minutes of walking on the beach to town with several restaurant choices and a supermarket. Enjoyed the food trucks. We rented scooters nearby and had a -blast.

Review:   PROS: Overall a very nice place. The food at the hotel was delicious and the service in the restaurant was excellent. CONS: - The have a very bad ant problem in bathroom and near bed. Make sure to throw away all of the flowers left in the room- they seem to attract the ants. - Bring ear plugs because you'll hear roosters crowing all night/early morning. - Wear plenty of mosquito repellent; they're EVERYWHERE. - The front desk would only provide us with 1 room key card for our stay (the room key must be inserted into wall unit to allow for AC) and gave us the excuse that they "ran out of cards and wouldn't have any more until the day after we checked out" - give me a break! - We rented a car based on the price that we saw in their literature (8200 CPF), when they printed the receipt, I noticed that it was for 8500 CFP. Christophe (one of the front office employees) said that we had old literature left in our room. (although it even showed the same 8200 CFP price in his literature too). After some discussion, he agreed to go with the 8200 CFP price. When we got back to our room, we noticed that the literature was changed to the new rates (even though we had a DO NOT DISTURB sign hanging). Additionally, when we checked out the next day, the price of 8500 CFP was on our bill.

Review:   The lake is stunning, the bungalows are really nice, the service is friendly and overall this hotel is really excellent. The downsides for us were the restaurant (which is overpriced and we got food poisoning) and the fact that we had room service for our laundry which came back smelling of mildew (because they forgot about it and then covered it up by saying that there had been a delay).
