We have stayed in the Billabong several times in both the normal room and the penthouse room.
The PH is very spacious with a very large balcony overlooking the sea. Stunning views, right on the beach!
There is a full working kitchen, with everything you need, pots, pans, plates,kettle, toaster, cuttlery, large fridge/freezer, microwave, etc.
There are 2 large flat screen tv's, 1 in living room and 1 in the bedroom.
The bedroom/ bathroom has a large open plan feel, with both a bath and shower and a double sink.
The Billabong is perfectly situated, slap bang in the middel of the fishermans village with plenty of great bars and restaurants there. Also plenty of shopping on your doorstep.
The only downside for us staying in either Billi 1 or Billi 2 ( the normal rooms) was the noise coming from the bar downstairs when they have live music playing, which is about 3 times a week. If you are a light sleeper it is not recommended, or just stay out till 2 and then its quite again.
Upstairs in the PH, this is not a problem.
The bar downstairs does great food and you even have an intercom in the room to order room service.
There is no swimming pool attached to the hotel but you can use the pool at the Smile House, a minutes walk up the road.
If you can afford to pay the little extra, I would highly recommend the PH!!!
Penthouse room, no noise from live music downstairs
