From face value this really does seem like a nice little bungalow. The decor inside seems clean and tidy, with a cool outdoor, open air style bathroom. After staying here for a few days we realised the toilet, shower and sink leaks very stinky water and we were pretty much attacked by bed bugs during the night. We outdoor furniture... More

Cheers Norman and the good guys at the banana leaf. You made me feel welcome and everyone was so nice, cheap food AND DRINKS. Every time I needed help with anything, the guys were there to show me the way, sometimes they even came too. Great Price, great service, thanks, I will be back. Marco

You couldn't pay me to stay here again. We booked it as basic as intended to be out but this place is not at all as described or in the pictures. Our room was absolutely disgusting; dirty foot prints up the brown grubby walls, mould in the bathroom which had not been cleaned in a LONG time with stagnant yellow... More

We couldnt extend our stay at our hotel next door so came here. We stayed in an air con room for one night which said tv. However you could only play dvds as had no aerial. It looked like it could do with some upgrading and looked quite tired. We didnt fancy staying here for very long as the wifi... More

The staff that work there were far more than accommodating, especially Norman and Abdul, who scheduled activities for us during the day, and cooked for us at night. 5 min walk to the beach, right across the street from a store that sells everything, and an amazing taco restaurant. The rooms were clean and supplied everything we needed. Breakfast was... More

The staff is very friendly. The offered us free tea or coffee and a nice chat when we arrived. We heard stories about bedbugs but didn't have any in our room. Only a lot of mosquito's, but that was just bad luck I guess. Breakfast is simple but very nice. Since there's no transport on the island. We rented a... More

When we arrived we noticed a few tiny specs of blood on the sheets but didn't really think anything of it. We stayed for 2 nights and woke up the first morning with a few small bites, however we thought this was heat rash. However the second morning we woke up we were covered in bedbug bites on our shoulders,... More
