Fantastic Island Snorkeling Getaway !

Review by CIndy A Plettenberg Bay, South Africa

We booked for my husband’s 40th bday celebrations. It was a 7 night all inclusive stay on a gorgeous island with ample sea life to explore. You could spend hours in the water snorkeling and the diving excursions are also worth it...

The food is completely fabulous and three buffet meals a day. I enjoyed the gym and the staff always being soo helpful and attentive. Ashmael, our waiter was just the best! We loved the cocktails and peace and quiet. The rooms are just marvelous. Spent half the stay on the beach and the other half in a water bungalow. Both must be experienced as they are so different and uniquely fabulous. Would def recommend this 4star, but 5star or even diamond rated in my book.💎

Paradise Island !

Review by Summie-Summie Cape Town Central, South Africa

We had a wonderful time on the Island. The food was very nice, and there was a variety everyday. Most of the staff were helpful and friendly...

The snorkeling around the Island is fantastic! The entertainment in the evenings were great and we had so much fun. We made many friends while we were there. We stayed in a beach bungalow that was cleaned everyday with clean towels etc. The beach around the island was kept very neat and clean. The only "negative" thing we have to say is that there are no Duvets on the bed, just a sheet. It gets rather cold at night with the air-con being on, otherwise it is to hot to sleep, so then we would have liked to have a duvet to sleep under. When we asked for a duvet they said that there weren't any, so we got 2 very thin single blankets. This is something the owner/manager should definitely look into.

Sandies Bathala experience

Review by NaeemC_ZA Johannesburg, South Africa

We had an amazing time. The resort is beautiful and what an amazing location. The welcome and the staff are amazing...

From reception, to restaurant ro cleaninhlg staff, each and every one was friendly, helpful and eager to make our experience memorable. The bar staff in particular stand out for me, Ruwanka and his team of Shree, Heyal and Puni are the friendliest guys ever and went out of their way to keep us hydrated. Ruwanka along with Omila also arranged to get my room decorated as I proposed to my now fiance on the Sunset cruise on the Thursday. We did some amazing excursions like manta ray, hand fishing, sunset bot cruise and snorkelling. Everything was beyond expectations

What an amazing place and cant wait to return some time to experience the hospitality and friendliness once again
