Nice location, beautiful beach, good fresh swimming pool. Wow!
There's 6 bungalows with 4 rooms each. The rooms on the first floor are very open. You have more privacy in the ground floor rooms. Every room has a private terrace. Nice to enjoy the evenings, watching the fireflies. We didn't really miss an AC in the rooms. Just a small fridge and a safe would be use-full. The open air shower is very romantic.
I really cannot understand the negative reviews I read here. This place is the place to be in this area. Lot's of privacy, nice tropical garden, very friendly staff, ok food. The only thing we missed were fresh juices in the morning.
We went snorkeling on a close-by beach but because of the tsunami in 2004, all of the corals are dead. BUT we were able to swim with a huge sea-turtle!
On our last evening, we went to the beach and were able to help the fishing man pulling the nets. Such a wonderful experience!!!
FYI: we went with our two children of 6 and 8 years old, they enjoyed every second!
