Me and my daughter stayed here in December 2013, and were booked in for a week's surfing lesson package, but cancelled after a few days due to bad surf teacher, terrible breakfast (not even juice, no coconuts, just tea or coffee and all western food), unfriendly atmosphere (the owners live on the property and refuse to say hello), and difficult location with NO MAPS provided (to get to Echo Beach you have to take your scooter across dirt tracks which get flooded when it rains). There are NO restaurants or bars nearby, as this hotel is in Prerenan beach and NOT on Echo Beach which at least has a few bars/ eateries. The rooms are OK but the bathrooms (no windows, shower and toilet in same area) are dirty.
The worst part is that we felt we were charged far too much by the surf teacher the hotel hired for us. We supposedly paid for individual instruction but in reality only my daughter was instructed as the teacher bought along his teenage nephew who could not speak English to 'teach' me. After complaining about this, a real teacher was arranged for me the next day. The main surf teacher also did not have functional English and was most unhelpful in addition to being at least double what other teachers charge (as I found out later). My advice is arrange your own surf teachers direct from the beach and DO NOT get the hotel to arrange teachers for you as you will get ripped-off!!
