We moved here from a nearby hotel which was similarly priced but too noisy. Panda was perfect for our needs. Comfy bed, fan and aircon. Good towels, fabulously powerful shower, TV and bottled water in the room. WiFi was adequate and it was beautifully peaceful. Don't know what the previous review about the dogs was about because they were quiet and perfectly behaved.
There's free pool, its a short walk to the bars and beaches and the shop on the corner next door is the cheapest we found for any drinks that the hotel couldn't supply.
I found the owner very helpful and I'm sad that other travellers appear to have taken the p*ss and left unpleasant reviews because their disrespectful behaviour was understandably not tolerated.
The only thing we forgot to mention before leaving was that the curtains could do with extra lining to help keep the light out.
We'd definately stay here again for $18.
