We loved the villa, beautiful, clean and neat. The beach is quieter. There is night market nearby to enjoy local food. However, we find the local taxi there... More

We were put into a 3 bedroomed villa but the 3rd bedroom was closed off (showing us what we couldn't have, we were 3 friends), but this villa got us a bigger pool and lounge area.
