If you can get a room here you won't be disappointed.
The dolphin bungalows provide a zen-like beach experience. They provide a great combination of the upscale amenities like a/c and modern/traditional (but spartan) room decor, with the rustic charms of living on the beach. The rooms are situated at the end of the beach, so it's a bit of a walk to see other things, but it also keeps things quiet.
The bungalow restaurant was ok. We tried most of the drinks and main dishes, and they were average. But there are so many good restaurants on the beach and in town so you won't have a problem eating well. In particular, there's one "restaurant" located a few blocks away from the dive shop owned by a German fellow (I forget the name, but he recommended it to us) that is fantastic. Amazing food at an incredibly cheap price.
The only problem you'll have is trying to get a room. It takes effort and luck to get a spot here, but it's definitely worth it.
