Our family of four stayed for five days. We absolutely loved it! Room was clean and comfortable. We stayed in room #102. There is a room air conditioner, and we turned it on when we arrived.

We didn't stay here at Wanna Wanna but had lunch outside with the view of the beach and rented chairs & an umbrella. The staff, atmosphere, and food was good. No complaints at all and will be back during our next vacation.

The bathrooms were clean and adequate. Had a good bar with live music and lots of people, but the rooms were still quiet. Good outside bar with good food and... More

I read the reviews and heard good things about the Wanna Wanna, but was terribly disappointed when I had to cancel my reservation. I checked their website again and could not find the 3 day cancellation policy. I tried to cancel the day before our arrival and management refused to credit our card. SO, JUST A WARNING !! Our booking... More

Most bedrooms had standard doors but ours had sliding door for entry - and the lock was so worn that the key wiggled up and down 45 degrees in the lock, and was difficult to lock/unlock. The bed was comfortable... More
