To be honest I wasn't going to leave a review of our stay on PIR until I found out friends of ours had booked a holiday to the island later this year, I didn't want to put a damper on their holiday so thought I would refer them to trip advisor to get an idea of what they were in...

Bula Mrs Pratt Tracey, thank you for your review although it is disappointing that you left with these negative impressions. We were aware from other social media that you had some reservations about this visit prior to your arrival, and we went to significant effort to placate you.

We just had the best holiday!
