This place is really not that bad in terms of quality. Cockroaches and staff who hassle you to buy drugs were a daily occurance, but nothing to bad for a budget traveller. If you can get it for 10-15 dollars in an off season it would be a decent find. However we were there on new years. We made a deal with them to stay in one of their nicer rooms (they have 2 rows of more budget style rooms and three nicer bungalow style rooms on the side). We agreed to stay for 7 nights min. If they gave us a good price on the room. After 3 nights, they came to our room in the morning and told us we had to leave, or change to a different (worse) room, but continue paying the price for the nicer room. When we told them that we would not move, because we had made a deal to stay for a week, they told us that they had received orders from the 'boss' to get us out, useing any means necessary, and that when we returned (we were going diving) our belongings would be on the street. During the argument that followed, that staff informed us that our room had been rented out to someone else online, for 3 times the price we were paying. The only reason they told us this was so that we knew that it was possible to stay in the room... if we paid the new price. Unfortunately for us, they played the game perfectly, and all other budget accomedations were unavailable, or their priced hiked for new years, now only 1 day away. We were forced (financially) into their only remaining and worst room, allowing them to maximize profits with no penalty. I have no doubt that this tactic is practiced regularly in the high season, or at least on special occasions such as this. Not only were the staff unapologetic, rude and forceful, they actually laughed at my girlfriend when she started to cry. In the end, peoples wallets will make their decisions for them a lot of the time, and I hope people go for the many other cheap places on the island over this one, so these guys learn the importance of respect for their customers, and that there will eventually be consequences to their actions.
