I almost didn't go with Reza Cottages based on some of the reviews here. I am so glad I did. This was one of my best holidays.
The cottages are clean, tidy and air conditioned (but the sea breezes meant you often didn't need it). Yes the shower and hand basin drain into the sea, but that's it. If you're worried, don't use soap...
As good as the tourism marketing is, i was still impressed. I literally woke to 2 or 3 large turtles frolicking (or rather feeding on sea grass) right outside the cottage. All day, with snorkel mask and fins, you are able to swim with them.
Johnny and his family were great. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was ok, typical indonesian, but more than enough. The layout of the cottages along the wharf makes for a lot of interaction with the neighbours, and everyone was very friendly. Wandered through a nearby resort and it seemed quiet and dead by comparison.
I took my early 70's parents on this holiday and they had an awesome time. As I said I was nervous about the location after reading some of the reviews but so glad I went. Highly recommended.
