Loloata is about 2 1/2 stars if you are lucky but the ambience makes up for the less than comfortable rooms. If it wasn't for the people that come across for the day trip the place would be even better. The daily invasion of Filipino and Indian construction workers and their families to picnic or just use the facilities makes it less attractive for those paying guests. It is very expensive for what it is so I would expect that there is some sort of preferential treatment for guest instead of having to line up behind these long lines of day trippers to get your lunch. There should be a guest only area for relaxing but it is hard to get a seat under the shade trees because they are all taken. So the owners don't really seperate those that pay the money for the accomodation to those that bring their own food and drink to the island. Doesn't make too much sense really.
However once they have gone back on the 15:00 boat the place returns to normal and it is very peaceful and you can get a row boat or a seat under the shady trees.
Wish the owners would consider doing something to make it more attractive to come for the weekend to stay by either resrticting the number of day trippers or having a seperate area for guests to enjoy the facilities more.
