Green Island Resort Reviews

We stayed 1 night on a whim and fell in love with Green Island. Since then, we have returned 3 more times and its always on our mind to get back there. The reef around the island is amazing snorkeling and the resort staff are the best. There's nothing like the serenity of having a drink and watching the sunset here. We always get up at sunrise and are out in the water to wake up the turtles. Every time we go snorkeling we see something different so I don't think we will ever see it all.
