The location of this small hotel is really great, the beach there looks gorgeous. Huts are nice, bit nomadic, and named after animals, which is cute. But: the resort claims to be eco-friendly - so there is no air-conditioning in the huts - instead are crammed with 3 fans and many electronic devices which I find nor eco-freindly neither necessary in such a simple place. Huts are also quite close to each other, and some huts have 2 rooms, not 1. We had one like this and could hear everything what happened in the neighbouring room. Bathroom is uncomfortable, small things missing from it or placed wrong (for example, towels outside, not in the bathroom, and no hangers in).
Food quality is bad, we tried a la carte lunch, which was acceptable, but the buffet dinner was very sad (meat was barely eatable for me), and at breakfast they had no choice: You could choose eggs or unprepared toast bread, some fruits, but nothing else.
I think they hired local people to do the service, but they got no training - our waiter at dinner couldn't undertand that we wanted a bottle of wine instead of a glass, he also had to consult with the manager about it. And at payment 3 people tryed to draw off my credit card, but couldn't manage it.
I think it not that I am spoiled a lot (though I surely am), I have been at many places for example in East Africa, which are simple and lodge-like like this resort, which are much better and no complaint. I think here the concept would be good, but the implementation is mistaken. Huts, food and service need to be improved.
