The ideal tropical paradise. Then you get to the end of the wharf and everything changes. We were led past some very low looking burees set in...

Just got back from 8 days at PIR and everything was as I expected. It's advertised as 3 star and unless you are expecting a 5 star experience, it's exactly what you'd expect. You need to realise the resort is 55 years old so there is going to be things that are tired or a bit rundown, however they are...

This resort is located a short boat ride or plane trip from the mainland , there are also 2 other resorts on this island as well as a small marina and traders shop selling everything from fruit and veg to fresh bread.
