    This place is amazing- total paradise, amazing staff (especially Tom and Tim at the bar). Lots of sea toys to play with for free and activities going on all day. My friend and I stayed in a dorm and it was not like any normal dorm. Single beds (no bunks!) with a lockable chest each, a bedside table and lamp. Air con on all the time which is a godsend. We were initially a bit annoyed about the compulsory meal plan but a. The food was AMAZING, and b. There are zero other options!

    Absolutely amazing! The facilities are great. The food was fantastic and they were able to cater for celiac / gluten free diet. Tom the bartender is the best. It was my birthday and Wame especially went out of his way to make sure I had a great day! All of the staff were so friendly. Also heaps of free activities as well.

    Amazing beach, with good waves, dramatic hide tide. Nice sunsets. Super fancy food. Small dorms. Nice bathrooms. Lots of places to lounge on the beach. Dive team was professional! Snorkeling was great at any tide level.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Octopus resort, I had issues with my dorm the first night but the manager was quick to sort it out. I enjoyed the outdoor cinema by the pool on the first night and thought there was a good range of activities on offer. The food was very nice also. Would highly recommend Maggie in the spa for a massage, she is very good. The only downfall was that they ran out of gluten free bread on the second day so didn't think there were enough gluten free options for breakfast.

    Stayed in dorm room, air con, very clean. Housekeeping were fabulous. Came in and made sure we were alright. Food was good but would like to see bigger portion sizes. Free snorkelling, kayak use. Staff were superb. Broke my flip flops on first day. Was no problem for the staff, who rang through to the mainland and had some sent free of charge. Wonderful gesture and no trouble. Customer service at its finest. Would recommend for a weary backpacker.

    Beautiful place. Food in the meal is great, dinner is a three course meal it’s incredible. The resort itself is stunning, definitely quite family focused so lots of children but amazing nonetheless. Really cool activities everyday. The “dorm” is only 6 beds, and had really good AC. Bathrooms are fine. There is better snorkeling elsewhere but still plenty of cool fish! Would recommend this for sure

    Caught staff trying to get into my padlocked backpack. Manager said they’re just curious... like they’ve never seen a padlock before UNACCEPTABLE. 2 couples in the dorms pushed beds together which is so weird & made everyone else uncomfortable. Solo travellers treated like garbage & couples/families treated so nice. Cold showers that just trickle. Food is average, people saying this is amazing are obviously not very well travelled. Totally overpriced and unfriendly. Go somewhere else.
