When we arrived the staff showed us to our room and it was smaller than we had hoped with just two double beds. There were three of us with big backpacks so we decided to check to see if they could give us a bigger room. They were able to accomodate us so we were very happy. The new room was much bigger and we each had our own bed. It's a no frills room but it suited us just fine since we weren't spending much time there. One night we were falling asleep and then we heard a loud chirping sound in the room. We almost had a heart attack! We all jumped out of our beds to investigate and found a gecko. Who knew they made that sound! Breakfast is delicious and I highly recommend the banana pancakes. One bird kept flying down taking sugar packets and then one of them started landing on my head. After the second time, I opted to eat inside. Dinner was delicious too. We went to use the facilities at Ylang Ylang every day and loved it. I also took salsa lessons there and the teacher was excellent. The monkeys came to visit the pool every day so we got some great shots. One of them almost got away with one of our bags though! He helped himself to our potato chips instead. The last day we left at 6am and they provided us tea/coffee and fresh banana bread for breakfast. We want to send a special thank you to Martin for all his help during our stay there. The only problem is the aforementioned bird tapped on our window every morning at 7am! She was a serious pain in the ...but we are very happy we stayed here. Great value when you use the facilities at Ylang Ylang.
