The friendly, helpful owners, managers and staff all worked together to ensure a relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed dining on the main deck overlooking the beach. The menu, highlighting local produce, had enough variety to please. The... More

A great place if you want to get away from stress. Great location with the beach just a few steps from your bungalow. Very good food and nice, friendly staff. We highly recommend this place for your vacation in Espiritu Santo!

Our wish was their command. The resort was breathtaking in all aspects right on the water and the Fara was so comfortable with it's own plunge pool. We... More

The service started well before we (myself and 12 other family members) even arrived on the island. We were collected from the airport, taken into town for supplies/money and welcomed at the resort with delicious cocktails and friendly smiles. Julie and Calvin went above and beyond to ensure our family stay was one to never forget. The fresh food, friendly... More
