Tuna Bay Island Resort

Our rating:
3.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

Tuna Bay Island Resort doesn't have much of a beach directly in front of the restaurant and it's a busy coming and going spot for taxi boats and so on.

Behind the boat landing the frontage is dominated by their large wood-fronted restaurant, which has an afterthought of a reception set on the northern wall that's staffed by very friendly workers. Chalets here come in two flavours, beachfront and garden view, and while the beachfront are the better positioned, the garden view are considerably cheaper, so if you don't really need a beach view, save your money. The beachfront rooms are large and peach and wood coloured, with a duplex configuration and compact balconies. Sliding glass doors help to let the sea-breeze in, though with the rooms all having air-con you may not be needing the breeze. Rooms won't win any design awards and have aged but clean bathrooms, and regardless of whether you go beachfront or garden view, decent beach awaits out front. Rates struck us as quite high. You can snorkel here but the reef is pretty banged up, no doubt in part due to its convenience to the resort.
