“spacious airy friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

A great place to stay. Very large spotless room, 2 tables, separate bathroom toilet. Plenty of room for dive/camera gear. Close to dive shops, restaurants and beach. Comfy queen bed with mosquito net. Detached house, so peaceful. Marites is a welcoming and friendly host. I had downstairs room, stayed 3 weeks. Excellent value.

Room Tip: Lady next door does good cheap massages.

good and very clean rooms. Marites the owner is friendly and I will go again there. My room in the top was a bit hot but you have a electric fan and then it was OK. Wi-fi is working well there and it is near the beach. really good and not expensive.

This guesthouse was amazingly clean and the owner was very friendly. Good restaurants nearby. The only drawback is the lack of lighting in the paths around the place, suggest a torch is necessary. 2 minute walk from tr beach, ideal for divers who don't want to pay beachfront prices.

Room was very clean, modern and large. Room also felt very private. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bed was comfortable. We stayed in the Air-conditioned room and it worked well. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that there was not hot water or TV(not that either were necessary, but they are sometimes nice amenities to have in a room) and it is a few minutes walk to get to the beach(although the area it was in was nicely forested and beautiful in its own way.
I would definitely stay here again and can recommend it highly.

These are very modern, spotlessly clean rooms. Actually they're more like small apartments since the rooms are a bit larger than usual and have a sofa and a table and chairs, en suite bathroom. Lots of sparkling white tiles, fluffy white towels, western wc, lockable cabinet for your valuables, high pressure shower (cold water), fan or air con, and the whole room is cleaned with bedding and towel change every 3 days.

We really enjoyed our stay at matterhorn. The owner is very friendly and gave information about the island and arranged for our laundry to be done. The location is very good, close to both beaches, near to the best restaurant in town. Wifi works well (though not from room). Could not ask for more, this place is excellent value.

Do bring a torch for the evening, paths get very dark, and some ear plugs if you're a light sleeper as this island is home to several hundred roosters! There is a cock fight every sunday! Chicken is always on the menu!

Matterhorn is a budget accommodation. The room is very clean, and bedding and towels are changed regularly. The owner Marites is friendly and tries hard to help guests find what they are looking for. It is situated in a fairly quiet location, so one can sleep well. The Wifi worked well, although the connection is a little slow. The Matterhorn is near restaurants and less than a 5-minute walk to the beach. Many dive shops are nearby as well. Bring a flashlight if you want to walk around at night, as the trails are partly unlit, and it can be very dark.
