I stayed here just once because the guesthouse I usually stay at next door was full. The location was good and the hut was rock bottom basic more like a tent than a hut. I'm not complaining about that however because it was also quite cheap. At first the owner was friendly and the place seemed like a real find.
However all this changed because I continued going to the guesthouse next door for most of my meals. My friends were there and besides, the food was much better! My mistake because I didn't realise that the GH makes most of its money out of the restaurant.
After about three days of this, I came home from a night out to find all my stuff dumped in front of my hut! I was being kicked out. I tried to rectify this issue with the owner and the motorcycle helmet that belonged with the scooter I had rented from them went "missing" during these minutes. It was quite obvious that it had been taken by one of the hotel staff but try to prove this. I refused to pay but the woman called the police on me (they were there in 1 minute, must have been prearranged) and they extorted the money out of me.
Moral of the story, if you really want to stay there (they do have the cheapest beachfront huts in Lamai) do so but take care to eat in the restaurant at least once a day, watch your belongings and check the bill carefully because the owner isn't really a honest lady.
