The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the full moon party. Plenty of shops, bars and restaurants within a 30 second walk. The lady on reception is really helpful and sold us tickets to the jungle party with a taxi included. Lots of ants and bugs in the room, ended up covered in ant bites from infested bed sheets....

We Walked in to our room and all of the lights were out apart from the bathroom light and a small light in the corner, it was almost pitch black. There were red stains...

The hotel itself is OK. the pool area is nice and its in a good location but the hut we had to sleep in with a padlock as a lock was awful, felt unsafe, unclean & uncomfortable. Was due to stay for 4 nights...left after 2.

I thought I'd add a picture of what was once of many things crawling around our room. The cockroaches weren't even the worst either. When I was laying in bed, I noticed blood marks and very tiny little bugs on the bed. I whipped off the duvet to find skin, blood and all sorts all over the sheet. My boyfriend...

This place is AWFUL. Out of a huge vacation all over three countries this was a hotel that we dreaded going back to every night and were looking forward to checking out of since before going to bed the first night. After a LIVE COCKROACH fell out of THE FREAKING A/C in our first bungalow (which had horror movie flickering...

Stayed here during the full moon - we were a bit worried that it wasn't going to be very social as they only do private rooms but it was the opposite. Pool and reception area was very social and we met lots of people. Great location and would recommend staying here!

We arrived there and automatically looked for alternate accommodation which we found but at a high cost due to full moon.. It is dirty smelly and very run down.. Normally I can cope with the odd bad accommodation but this was horrible. Our bungalow was infested with ants, and the beds were not nice at all. If you don't mind...

I stayed in this place during the May full moon party and it was terrible. The room felt more like a holding cell. It had this smell kind of like a mangrove swamp. The bedsheets were stained and still had fluro paint from the last person to stay there. There was also no real blankets or anything to actually sleep...
