Had a fantastic stay in the sister resort (Agro) 2 months ago. So thought of trying Yasin and was attracted by the Sea Wooden Bungolow and the cheap price.
The booking was via email. The contacting person was very friendly and informative. They have arranged for all the ferry and land transport (upon request), therefore we do not have to worry for it.
Upon arrival, the counter staff was friendly and allow us to have an early check-in and check-out. Personally I think the staffs are very approachable and smilely! =D ~Nice
The resort is nice, simple and not very crowded. You can stroll freely around. The bench is not fantastic but i'm ok with it....as during low tide you can walk along the bench and there's many fascinating marine creatures.
We stayed in the Delux Wooden Sea Bungolow. Room is generally bigger than the regular wooden bungolow. It's REALLY basic (no boiling kettle, no heater, no TV, 1 electric socket). During rainy days, the water can get pretty cold! The room is located at the far corner of the resort, therefore it's quieter and you get more privacy.
However, please beware of the mosquitoes!!!!! During night time till dawn time, they are the TERROR!!! The room has mosquitoes net provide (not effective though) and we brought along a pack of mosquitoes repellent incense, but we still ended up with countless of bites. =I This really freak me out pretty much....
Food. It's easy to get. You can order at the resort's cafe. They are pretty affordable and tasty. If not, you can choose to go to Agro or Cabana (sister resorts), they have free transport service all day long.
In overall, our stay is good and we had a nice weekend getaway but be well prepared to "fight" against the MOSQUITOES =P
