Top River Pearl is situated up a road a little way back from the main street. The apartment we had came with a tiny kitchenette, bedroom, bathroom and little balcony. There was no air-con, but the fan meant that it wasn’t needed anyway. The whole place was spotlessly clean and whilst a couple of balcony chairs would be a good addition, we were fairly impressed with the rooms. The only problem came after a night of torrential rain shorted the electrics on the water pump, leaving the whole place without water.
There’s a communal sitting area that made a nice place to head to. For those travelling as a group or family, this would be a huge help. For the two of us, though, the best bit about it were the two friendly kittens that liked to sleep in the bookcase!
The German owners weren’t in the country when we were there, and the coffee shop downstairs apparently only opens up when they are living there. Without them, the place is managed by Mark, a friendly and helpful local guy who was always around to answer questions or sort us out with things we needed.
