After booking & paying in full, we arrived & were shown to our 'bungalow'. The owner 'Dinu' doesn't know what a 'bungalow' is. He calls his rooms 'upstairs' in a run down building - the 'bungalows' - what a joke ! It had been raining and the deck leading to the room was green slime & slippery. We entered the dark, smelly, dirty room in horror. Welcome to our nightmare. The floor was covered in sand, there was dust and cobwebs everywhere. The bed linen was old, crumpled and not clean. The pillows were deteriated, the mosquito net was torn and absolutely filthy, the furniture was old and consisted of a broken towel rack with a nail sticking out of it - which tore my dress when I walked past it, the small cupboard was fit for the dump, the bathroom stunk & was not clean, the room was full of mosquitos, the ashtray on the verandah outside our room was full of stale old smelly cigarette butts. This place was not cheap - we paid AUD $65 per night & booked it for 3 nights - big mistake. We could not believe that 'Dinu' could have the hide to present this place to tourists & charge so much and actually get away with it. Talk about 'false advertising'. It continued to shower so everytime we left our room we had to slush through thick mud. After the first night we complained bitterly. He moved us to the other building closer to the beach - it was far better - but still dark inside & not very clean. We are well travelled & no true value - this place is a 'Dive' - it is disgusting - a total rip off - very run down. Be warned !
