About 2 weeks out we realised we were going to arrive a day later (due to flight and boat timings). Despite telling Bruno this more than 4 times over email, no one was around to pick us up from the port and I had a rather rude email from Bruno from the previous day asking where we were.
After more than an hours wait, someone picked us up and took us to a rather dirty beach where we were transferred to the accomodation. First impressions weren't great. They found it strange that three boys were traveling together.
Anyway, Peht was the high point - friendly, approachable, helpful and really lovely. Bruno, on the other hand was the opposite. There was a feeling that because we were three gay guys (single and looking for a quiet holiday), they didn't know what to do with us - all very odd.
Accomodation pretty awful - the 'extra bed' was a mattress on the floor. Ridiculous for what we're playing and esp because the cockroaches we found in the bathroom were the size of Jeanette Krankie.
Village was sweet but very quiet, no one around at all. food was OK in places. Best beach was a 30min walk. This was the only selling point. Overall, we couldn't wait to leave after 4 nights.
I wouldn't recommend for the price, despite how lovely Peht was.
