This hotel was much worse than we could have expected. The description online gave the impression of a tropical hut with a thatched roof, tiled floor and nice atmosphere. We found nothing like this.

This "Eco Hostel" is a [--]. Sorry, but that's it. There's water everywhere because the roof is old. Rubbish and old stuff everywhere.
