We stayed for three nights at end the of march having booked with agoda. When we arrived they had lost our booking and there was no room for us so they put us in a room that is currently on the side if the hotel where they are doing building works. This was ok, although they didn't explain this to us just looked rather panicked but when we got to the room it was full of other people's stuff. When again I kicked up a fuss they offered us a full room clean ( apparently the owners children had been staying there). Once this was completed things looked up and they promised us a move to a proper bungalow and a beach front bungalow for the last night to make up for the trouble. However for us things only got worse. That night we were disturbed by a loud scratching and russeling that sounded like it was in our room. After much searching we couldn't find anything but at 5am I vacated and sat on our friends balcony as a better option than staying in this room. I think we hoped this would be the end of it but every room has this problem at the moment as our next room and the beach bungalow all have a problem with civits which are nocturnal and the size of a cat which seem to leap around in he roof space and leave droppings everywhere on the balconies and patios. When we asked the management they said there is nothing they can do about this but I think they should at least warn people.
Personally I wouldn't stay here again. The beach was very dirty with floating bags of used nappies but the snorkelling is great once you get out there. The food was also very nice and we had no complaints.
My only piece of advice is that we hired two outriggers to take us to the Japanese shipwreck. This was a very expensive trip for two hours and although we haggled we couldn't get the price down and you can swim from the beach to this wreck which would be much cheaper.
Like everyone else we agree a proper safety deposit box in the room to take electronic equipment would be a huge boom. Also doors that fit. On the second day there was a (small) snake under our sun lounger on the balcony. Nothing in the way the doors are constructed would have stopped that getting in the rooms, we are just lucky it didn't.
