This resort would suit couples and families. It was very quiet. The night time food markets (Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights) at Muri...

Great place to stay, very clean and super friendly staff. Pool and bar area are very good, plenty of loungers and chairs to sit on. Great to be able to use the facilities next door at Nautilus as well. Handy to night markets and good eating out places. Would stay again.

Myself and my boyfriend have stayed here twice. Our recent stay was the beginning of April 2017. As always we were welcomed by Margaret at the airport. She took our bags and we walked out to the van, loaded up and off we went. She had her cool music playing and waving to everyone she knew on the way to...
