We came in the low season and found Jannat House a well-priced B&B ($60 for an ensuite double, I think). We were there with three friends, and had the place to ourselves for three or four nights. The only real downside was the breakfasts, which were not very interesting or tasty. The rest of the food on offer was tasty and well-priced, however, and we had dinner up on the roof one night. The building is tall, so the views are great. A fast wifi connection in the house is a bonus, and there were couches and daybeds on little terraces all over which we made good use of. The bathroom was pretty small, but everything was clean and comfortable and the bedroom very cute. I think we got what we paid for, with the outdoor space and pool a nice bonus. Owner/manager Johnny (from Norway) is a doctor, which might come in handy if you get sick. Airport transportation can be arranged but is not included in the price. 5min walk from the jetty, but they will meet you there and carry your bags. I'm not sure why TA is asking me to rate the fitness centre, since there certainly wasn't one there when we visited.
