If your looking for someone to totally chill out for a few days then this is the spot. Set right on the beach it's a desination and you basically have to eat there, but the food is good. At night it's a set price for dinner and you eat as a group or you can eat by yourself if you want. It's a bit more than we were used to spending (on a backpackers diet of beans) but definitely worth it! The hosts are great as well and we had a great time gaming out with them. There is a dive shop as well and the diving was great. Overall a great little place!
