I stayed at Stumble Inn with a few friends for 3 nights in December 2013.
Firstly, the resort is gorgeous and very charming. Every piece of glass bottle lining the walkway and every plant and flower seemed to be placed with the greatest care. The beach was gorgeous and vacant and literally steps away. There were tons of lounge chairs you could sit in right in front of the beach and for you to use while reading a book and listening to the sound of the waves. Though some of the lounge chair cushions were getting a little old.
I stayed in one of the huts and it was lovely falling asleep to the sound of the waves. The beds were pretty nice and comfortable as well, though my mosquito net was a little small and didn't cover the entire bed. I personally enjoyed the open-aired bathroom as you could shower under the stars (though the water pressure of the standalone showers were better!), but some of my friends really couldn't stand the smell of the eco-friendly latrine! I think this was partially our fault.. we ran out of ashes on the first day and never asked for more.
All in all this is a fantastic place to spend a few days relaxing on the beach while eating delicious banana and chocolate crepes. If you're planning to come and meet tons of people and party.. maybe this isn't the place for you (we didn't really meet anyone, though it was low season) but if you just want to have a few days relaxing on the beach, I would highly recommend it!
