“Not quite a bungalow”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Booked a 'bungalow' for 5 nights during the full moon period, the bungalow was actually a room that was upstairs in a complex, didn't really bother me just thought it was weird. They expect 50% of the room cost when booking online which is a bit of a nuisance but has to be done to confirm booking. The remaining cost of the room had to be paid when we arrived, again a bit annoying.

The resort is situated on Sunset road, around a 5-10 minute stroll to the full moon beach. It's surrounded by a few other bungalow resorts and numerous minimarts. Our room was right next to the sunset beach, the beach itself is not quite idyllic but it makes for a nice view. I would advise swimming elsewhere on the island.

The room itself is well presented, we had a double and a single in our room, with hammock on the balcony. The bathroom is adequate, however you have to ask for toilet roll from reception every time you run out. The shower area is not seperated well from the rest of the bathroom which means the floor gets quite wet, it's also an open air bathroom so it can get very hot if you spend too long in there.

We had A/C, TV and a fridge in our room which all worked very well, the a/c held up well during temperatures of 30+ making the room very bearable at night.

+ Proximity to sunrise beach/party area
+ WiFi (albeit patchy)
+ Hammock
+ Sunny everyday (August)

- Open air bathroom
- Frequent power cuts
- Not the cheapest
- The beach
- Staff aren't overly friendly and expect money up front

Take your key card off the keyring and you can have the a/c keeping the room nice for when you return from the heat of the island.
