“Didimiza beach guest house: Fireflies at night on a quiet magnificent beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

In December 2010 I spent five nights in this simple, beautyful guest house with Ahmad and his very kind staff. Everything was a super experience: the wild environment, the solitary white sand beach which is few meters nearby, the rich and various dinner and, last but not least, the very reasonable prices. Everything in D.B. Guest house concurs to make your holiday an extraordinary experience.

We were going to stay here but there was a mix up with our booking. We did eat here most nights and it was the best food we had in Mafia. It seemed expensive at $10/person but you get three courses a beautiful quiet outdoor dining room. The one night we had octopus curry, another stuffed carb and the only dissapointing night we had chicken, but if you look at the chickens on Mafia you will understand why they are so tough to eat. (Thin and stringy)
The rooms are spacious brick rooms with fans and en suite bathrooms with western toilets.
Even if you don't stay I would go eat. If you tell them during the day they will prepare enough for you to join the guests at night.

Stayed February 2011, traveled as a couple
