We managed to get a cheap deal via the information site at late notice after leaving the awful Globetrotters hostel (see my review!). This hotel is well managed by full time reception staff, you get free breakfast (which oddly includes pots of noodles, who wants these for breakfast?) which is between 6:30 - 9am and the air conditioning in your room is a life saver from the tropic heat. We also had a fridge and a TV although we didn't watch it at all. It was pretty quiet when we stayed here in March 2014, I don't know what the breakfast situation would be like in peak season - properly mental. Overall, a good stay.
