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

I stayed here with some friends while we were in a backpacking trip through SEA. We stayed in the air-con bungalow and were really happy with it. The air-con worked perfectly, the bed was ok. The shower was something we really liked as it was somewhat "outside". We felt a really incredible vibe in this place and decided to stay... More

So there is three different accommodations for the same name, all far away from each other. Ours was 2, which took us half an hour to find. It's about a 20 minuet walk to the beach area. There is only three rooms in this one. The rooms are good, bathrooms a wet room with a normal toilet and a weak... More

Really friendly and funny group of guys running it, especially Norman, he is awesome!! Helped us out with anything we needed. Really good location to beach, shops etc. Though our room was very dark! And a few mozzies from the open air bathroom that come in through the door gap which could be fixed. The mosque prayer thing is very... More

There is not much left to add to the previous comments. It ticks all of the not so nice boxes. The place is "run" by a group of young, local lads who are eager to be friends with you but that's pretty much where their engagement with the place seems to end. There is no managment - aparently the manager... More
