Great price for a good simple room with an AC and a clean bed and bathroom. Location is perfect. Staff super friendly. Food is really good with a nice sea view. They organize trips to Blue Hole, Blue Lagoon and other places with suitable prices.

I spent there 2 night, The accommodation is good for the money I paid. The cafe offers a great sea view,however the food and drinks quality are not so good; you can go out and buy any sandwiches and enjoy eating them by the sea view. The room was OK just the basics, bathrooms need a lot of improvement. The... More

A great place overall, perfect location and the staff was extremely friendly. The rooms weren't so great however they were working on upgrading them as they changed the beds during our stay. The daily excursions are reasonably priced considering the average pricing for the area and the rooms are dirt cheap. Definitely worth checking out.

I stayed there for 5 days. Very cheap and reasonable place. The cafe is really good to sit in and read and have a drink but the food is not very good. It is better to go out and get some shwarma or anything for that matter

With A big variety of hotels in the area, Penguin is simply not good enough. To start with, the staff are very intrusive and never mind their own business. There was a birthday party with a couple of families but the music was too loud and not very nice, we asked them to try and turn the volume down but... More
