We were there in Sept 2017 and the place wasn't very busy. The resort itself is fine, but the rooms do have a bit of a musty smell. We left our windows open pretty much 24/7 so that wasn't too bad.
We had the buffet dinner at Zephyrs and the meal was nice, nothing extraordinary, but good value for money.
We went snorkeling and swam with turtles and rays, as well as reef fish and the waters were warm and clear, the reef is a little disappointing, but it is very shallow and so its a little washed out.
Foxy's is nice place to hang out, but as with any captured market the prices were a little on the expensive side, but then again, everything has to be ferried in!
We went for a walk to Nudey beach and there is less coral on the beach so much easier to walk barefoot.
Overall a nice tropical island that caters for everyone
