Nice little hotel the room we had No 7 was clean but small but had a good sized bathroom. The room was gloomy due to dark furniture and the wood on the walls. Only here 2 nights. The garden area is well kept with the pool. No kettle only a flask with hot water. Good place for a stay.

Location: Approximately 250m to the beach. This hotel is really hidden. Don't be decieved by the looks of their restaurant because its old and often deserted. Go behind it and you'll see the paradise. Indeed it is hidden but its awesome. Room: We have the biggest room in the resort. It was spot clean sheets smells good and toilet were... More

We were pulled in off the street as we wandered past and were instantly attracted to the lovely pool and great bathrooms (bearing in mind we are backpackers used to extremely rough conditions) The tv had a good range of channels which was perfect during heavy downpours of rain and the pool was a great spot to relax by.

However no room services were offered during our 4 night stay. Wifi was ok in the restaurant and poor in the room. The pool was ok and... More

Nice clean rooms at this hotel and there's a nice pool. Staff were friendly. Relaxed atmosphere. The tv reception wasn't working but the internet connection was good. Close enough to the beach, far enough to be peaceful. Restaurant had good food, not as cheap as some places, but extremely popular grill. It is across from the bank, and next to... More

We visited the restaurant as it seemed to have a decent assortment of barbeque food available. The service was not too bad but we were horrified at the blatant poor hygiene front of house. In fact I would say there is a dangerous amount of ignorance at this establishment. The first thing that caught my attention was a rather fat,... More

Absolutely terrible, overpriced seafood. We got completely ripped off and ended up with two lobsters with black goop inside them as if they'd been dead a long time. Service was abyssmal as the restaurant is filled to the brim with huge tables of Chinese tourists so smaller tables don't get any attention at all. We had to literally ask ten... More
