Worth money? Spend time with watercolors and you won't regret the service that they offer. Friendly people, very neat resort. When it comes to overall satisfaction, very very satisfied with our stay and we'll definitely stay again in the same resort.

Firstly, the staff is very friendly; free (good) coffee, tea and water are available throughout all times, the outside terrace is very well maintained, they play good music at decent...

Have just come back from two wonderful dives with Watercolors and there was nothing to fault-- staff were friendly and welcoming, equipment was in great condition and the food was really very good relative to the standards of most other places on the island.

Last week my daughter and I experienced an awesome holiday at WaterColors. We stayed in Room 202, which not only has a balcony that offers a firsthand view of the sparkling sea and powdery beach, but also has wonderful and comfy interiors, including the cushy queen-sized sea-view bed and a lovely bathroom with a tub. The food we had was...
