I booked through a BnB website that the hotel in the pricing failed to take into account the busy Eid holiday week. When we arrived they double the confirmed price. They were very apologetic but at least they held the reservation . Eid is a week holiday in Muslim countries when all governmental offices close hence everyone travels! By mutual agreement we stayed one night instead of two and let them have to room to rent at the higher vacation prices.
The facility is modern with a great diving/snokeling reef just across the road. Meals are reasonable and prepared fresh.
The photo is of the very expensive $ 350 USD goat that is sacrificed on Eid and the meat donated to the Mosque for the needy.
