Green Island Resort (225)
We could not recommend Green Island more highly. The wildlife, facilities and staff were all amazing.

Wonderful location, best place to snorkel, great staff. Nice room v comfy great air con. A little tired, but the location is so wonderful i would have stayed in a grass hut.
Probably more food options would be ideal, however the food we had was great. Absolutely great staff who were helpful. Once things pick up hopefully, an option for food other than burgers and big mains would be ideal.
