Beautiful just like the photos
Stayed at Chale Isl for my birthday for 4 nights in December. The resort photos absolutely match reality. The beach was beautiful. The staff were friendly and service was quick and efficient. The food was great and varied each night. This is not a place for young families, everyone on the island were there to relax quietly. I will definitely be back !

Anniversary getaway
Excellent resort for a quiet break, not busy and lots of private space. Would have preferred if there was a mini fridge in the room
