I stayed here in April and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was for the price. The rooms are cute, clean and comfortable and most have a little veranda with a hammock. There was a common-fridge in the hall to keep your drinks cold.
There is a lovely little pool tucked into the back of the courtyard which was amazing at the end of a long day of surfing.
The staff and guests were very friendly - I was travelling solo and there was a nice mix of young/ old / Euro / Canadian / US travellers to meet. The guests included singles, couples and even 2 young surf families.
I took surf lessons through the hotel and they were great and affordable.
There is a common kitchen you can use which was nice to make a cup of tea and toast and then go lie in your hammock.
The only funny thing was that in April all the coconut trees drop their seeds/pods and the hotel has tin roofs... what a racket! Anyway, it only happens one week of the year and we all had a laugh about it.
This hotel is a 3 minute walk to the beach. The very small town is safe and friendly with good surf and food.
