Close to the beach and the action.
resonably price and the breakfast buffet is amazing. Access ++ to amazing markets, nightlife, resturants.
Speaking english to the front of house staff and service attendants can be difficult depending on who you encounter. The rooms are of a basic nature, but are clean, free from bugs, and has several nice pools. There is the more exclusive side of the hotel as well, is it worth it i dont know, but looks nice. We stayed in a double room. The first room we were ofered was on the very small side and had cats walking past the ground floor deck. We were then upgraded to a larger room (not sure if an upgrade) but on the oppossing side of the complex and several levels up that provided a little more privacy when sitting on the deck....and no cats.
Be careful of mossies at night, take your repellent before you leave home (and maybe before bed).
** Caution** there are a lot of aussies, engligh, and other foreigners that will approach you on bikes and ask you to scratch a card for a prize. This is canvassing for the 'Absolute Hotel' brand. People travelling in a group will always win a star prize at the alarming and quite animated shock of your new found friend. Don't get sucked into the 90 minute presentation, this will take 3 hours plus, be dragged out, and then in typical fashion be quesioned why you dont want to invest into your holidays and then the salemen turn nasty ***
