  • We've been coming here every so often for years and it got distressed looking but it seems to have gotten its second wind. Mr Ellis was charming to us and he is working hard toi restore the fun spot that we remember. The Blue Lagoon restaurant is still the exquisite dining spot as always and our villa was a vast improvemnt over the old style villas. Definitely you want to stay where you can see the boats. I question the sincerity of some reviews that I viewed on here, complaining of work noise but then complaining that it needs work lol. What it is is a good value for staying on Paradise Island. I dont like big crowds and this is still the homey spot we remember, just being updated to 2014 standards. Oh and the ladies did an excellent job of keeping our place nice and tidy.
