I would not say that this is a bad place to stay, but I was expecting a lot more based on the price. We've stayed at places that were much cheaper in similar situations (islands/beach areas in South East Asia) and the value for money was much, much better.
Very basic amenities were there and functional like an air conditioner, TV (but very small and really grainy), WiFi, and mini fridge
Staff was very responsive to requests and polite.
The Not Good
Cockroaches - we found a total of 13 GIANT cockroaches over the course of our stay. It is an island so a person does have to expect bugs, but this seemed excessive. We reported it and they were responsive, but by then the damage was done.
Room was falling apart - Our bed had a weird sag in it on one side and the consents were falling out of the wall. There was toilet paper or something lining the windows. The water heater did not work very well and the shower head would not stay on the wall (the holder was broken)
Irregular cleaning - Not sure why, but room does not get cleaned on rainy days. We reported this as well and someone came by, but by that time it was late at night so we just asked for new towels and to take out the trash. The reason given was "it was raining"
Down to the very, very basics - We weren't expecting toothbrushes or hairdryers or anything, but we thought for the price we were paying we would get at least a bar of soap, but we did not get even that.
