Good party hosel, great resort! Jul 27, 2011
BoOK the party package which includes your ferry tickets, 1 breakfast, dinner and snorkel hire.

The resort itself is really good. Right on the beach, a pool, lots of room on the decking to sun bath. A big bar which is busy at night. Especially on a Saturday (they also have full moon parties but I missed that). Lots of games if you like to get involved and happy hours. Lots of people come from other hostels.

The dorms are tiny. I thought it was going to be three to a room loOKing at the size from the outside but they somehow managed to get 8 of us in there! Showers are OK but as they are outside lots of creatures to keep you company! CoOKing facilities aren't great at all. We also had a food thief when we were there {yes we are all on a budget!) but on the plus side the meals from the bar are pretty good value for money, especially considering there isn't many other places to go.

Hire a car whilst you are there. You can get everywhere on the bus but it gave us the freedom to go and feed the rock wallabies in the wild at night. They jump on your knee if you sit down and feed them grass. Too cute for words.

I liked base. It was very chilled out and has a great location right beside the beach. I hear the full moon parties are really good as well, but I left before one was about to start.

If you want a full moon party make sure and book the accomodation early otherwise you will miss out.
