We came here a day after we completed a mountain bike tour. The cocktails were great and the service was quite good. This is a nice place to relax if you just want to soak in some sun but also stay cool by the pool.

Where the locals come to hang out. Nice place to relax and have cocktails. Run by westerners. Very rammed!

La Pistoche pool is a great place to spend the day escaping the heat with friends. The food is good (although it may take a really really long time to make it to you), the drinks are better (happy hour 12-7 means 2 for 1 drinks), there's a swim up bar, and the pools are clean and refreshing.

Greeted by loud music at 190bpm fit for if your at a festival on drugs, I thought midday was a little early to party. A magnet for young backpackers escaping the heat. 16 beds and 15 tables adorn the sides of the two pools. Couldn't get a bed at 12pm. But the hammock I'm sitting in now as I write... More

An escape from the city, with majority backpackers/tourists, on a hot dusty day, it felt like an oasis. Would be 5* rating though it needs a little bit of updating.

Spent all afternoon here, mostly at the swim-up bar. This place was fabulous and surprisingly inexpensive. Two pools, lots of sunbeds and hardly anyone there when we went.
