“Perfect Hideaway on Bottle Beach”
Reviewed January 8, 2011

we stayed here 3 nights and it was great. bottle beach can only be reached by boat. on the beach are 2 or 3 other resorts, nothing else like no shops etc. there is no reef for snorkelling but the beach is nice and clean and perfect ;)
the smile bungalows are scattered on the hill in the "forest". no electricity until 6pm. no air con, and no hot water but good mosquito nets and the beds are also very comfortable. the first night we had a really small bungalow, we could not even unpack our bags because it was so tight and the only little light in the room didn't spend much light. then we changed in a much bigger bungalow and it was awesome! big bathroom, 2 seperated beds with a lot of space in the room etc.
the restaurant is nice, fresh food, but sometimes you cannot order everything on the menu card because they run out of several food, but it's alright though you definitely won't starve ;) and the staff is cool, all of the guys are very young, and relaxed. 2 computers with internet access, little library, tv, music, ... oh and the price: unbeatable, perfect for low budget backpackers
