The good - nice rooms, great views at a fantastic price. Staff were lovely and friendly. You pretty much get free tropical fruit during your stay (or so cheap the cost is irrelevant). According to the sign on the door, the rooms are up high and you are safe from tsunamis. Also, close to town if you don't mind a short walk along a beautiful beach. Also, we had a bout of food poisoning (unrelated to the resort) and the clinic was free and very helpful.
The bad - Food is awful. I wouldn't eat here again, the buffets are spectacularly bad and breakfast is woeful. Also, while the staff are very helpful, they can't speak english. What is worse is they smile and pretend to understand and it is only later you realise they have no clue. We found this out when we ended up at the airport after asking for a taxi to another resort. We were concerned they didn't understand and went to great lengths to ensure there were no problems and they understood where we needed to go. They smiled and assured us that they understood and packed us off to the airport with everyone else who was leaving that day.
Overall - good value place to stay, eat out of the resort and make your own way with taxis etc. I would recommend for someone on a budget as it is not bad value if finances are an issue. I won't be going back again.
