We read many comments about the arrangement of the shower, toilet and sink. The word strange/weired has been mentioned a number of times. We are neither nudist nor exhibitionist. Can we find out if there are rooms with showers that provide privacy? We do not want to have to bring our own curtains and hope not to have to walk across the bedroom from the toilet to the sink. Please clarify if rooms all have same arrangement?
In addition, if there is a shuttle going into town, can return trip be per-arranged or one needs to walk back or take a taxi? How much does a taxi trip from center of town to the hotel cost?
I stayed here back in October. If you contact the hotel they should be able to set you up with a shuttle to/from the hotel or you can easily grab a taxi when you get off the bus (assuming that is how you are arriving). As for the bathroom situation, if you are referring to the fact that there is a large ceiling to floor window in the shower, toilet area, there is a curtain which covers the windows. So there should be no issues for you.
The Shower, toilet and sink is located on the veranda come balcony , it is private you need not have to cover up as you cannot be seen from the street and there are no other buildings close enough to see you in the shower, it was just strange because it was on the balcony, we walked to town every day it is about 15 minutes easy walk, we did not take a taxi so I don't know cost of taxi, regards Clive Holmes
