We stayed here for 2 nights even though we had planned to stay 4 because we didn't see it worthwhile to stay another 2 days. First, this is not a resort. There are no amenities that could constitute it as a resort, so they should really take it out of the name. Second, when we arrived, we were shown to our bungalow which was basic, but fine and has a nice terrace with hammocks and chairs, but the problem was there was an incredibly strong odour that we could not get rid of (apparently it's something to get rid of critters or rats or something...) At any rate, it was bad enough that we asked to change rooms for the last night. Since they said they couldn't refund us for the 2 nights we no longer wanted to stay, we requested that they at least let us use the air con for free the second day, which was a bit better.
The other major reason we decided to leave the island early was simply because there is almost nothing to do on the island and the beach was disgusting!!! There was garbage everywhere!! It's a real shame. We didn't feel comfortable even going for a walk because you had to dodge garbage the entire time and swimming wasn't appealing when you're watching garbage crash into the shore along with the waves. We even had to dodge used needles on the beach! Which reminds me of the hotel rules, which included "do not do drugs including heroin and cocaine, and do not bring prostitutes into the rooms." That should tell you something.
I would not recommend this place.
