It was a spur of the moment decision to stay at the Malibest Resort. Whilst strolling the length of the beach, what stood out were a couple of timber tree houses amidst palm trees right on the beach. Far more appealing than many of the concrete boxes lining the beach. Fortunately the tree house was available for just one night so we grabbed it. The room is nothing special. Actually, quite basic with dated furniture and furnishings. Quite a dark interior. Not to worry as the attraction is the balcony overlooking the beach. Other beach goers would often stop and gaze up at us sipping our beers on the balcony. Jealousy at its best!
The trees and palms provided privacy from the adjacent buildings. The staff at reception were helpful but not overly friendly. An excellent Indian restaurant adjacent to the front of the reception is highly recommended. The other must do dining experience is a short stroll along the beach to "Babylon" - a collection of eating and drinking options with a reggae theme. A pleasant change to many of the otherwise sterile dining options available.
For bragging rights, a stay at the Tree House is highly recommended. If it is not available, the other rooms seemed fine - though I am sure Tarzan and Jane would not agree.
