Our review is the same as everyone else's!!!! It's scary.
Did not turn up at airport
Rusty scrap heap did turn up with the doors tied closed with rope, and broken seats, so had to sit on the floor.
Finally got there at 1 am, 1 beach front bungalow was fair and the other was hideous, it was amazing that she took us into it. first chase the bugs out, I had to clean out the mouldy food from the fridge. my mate slept on someelse's sheets that night. I went there as part of a boy's trip to a mate wedding and even thought it was bad.
And the room was just hideous - I had to take photos to show people how bad it was!!!!!
NO CLEANING was done whilst we were there, no rubbished emptied for the whole week! I ended up leaving the bin (which I had to clean out when we arrived because the food waste had liquidfied) on the path behind our room with other rubbish stacked against it for the whole week.
The pool was green, we had no hot water in our room for our entire stay. There are soo many bad things to say, I've probably left some out!
The photos on the website were taken in 2003, and there has been no maintenaince since - the whole place is run down and delapidated. I had to look again at the website once I got back to see how we were suckered in!
The only other people who stayed there were locals (unemployed at a guess) who needed some place to live.
It's amazing how bad this place is. Caryn and Brian seemed friendly, but lazy as, - no service at all.
When you tell the locals where your staying, most of them laugh and ask if your hosts are drunk yet!!!!!!!!
Finally, there is no beach, the coast here is all rock and reef. You cann't swim as there is no laggon. it is ankle deep until you reach the edge of the reef 20m away then it's open ocean, and huge breaking waves to kill you against the rocks. during January it was good 2-3m swell for the enitre time it would of been suicide to atemp to swim.
Like I said, we were on a boy trip, and I'm a rough rooster at the best of times, and even I thought this place was bad!
