I stayed here with my family, two girls 5,6 years, for 5 days.
We wanted to try a different type of holiday, a more simple and closer to nature instead of the big resorts.
All in all we thought it was a nice place. The owner Amar was extremely friendly and very easy to talk to. He made us feel very welcomed. He had two dogs, very nice and calm, that our girls adored.
The place is situated at a most beautiful and clean beach! At the end of the beach, which means practically no other people! Really really nice!
Huts made of bamboo, great beds! Very simple interiour, but ok. You can hear everything around you at night, which means even whisper! The huts dont take any sound. So yes could hear a lot of what was happening in the other huts....:-) and vice versa I guess.
Restaurant on the beach made nice food, really good spring rolls. Food is not included in price, not even breakfast. You eat all meals at that restaurant, which means outdoor in the sand unless you go elsewhere for dinner.
There were LOADS AND LOADS of sandflies, and we got bitten really bad! We spend most of our time on the beach, and the flies would be there all day! This actually ruined some of the holiday.
There is no AC in the huts, only fans but the temperature still gets pretty high, so we had a hard time adjusting to the weather and to get our bodies cooled off.
Cleaning of the hut was so so...I think they only swiped the floor and changed towels.
Would say it is a nice place to visit if not for the sandflies and the missing ac.
This is simple and no extras...but you dont pay much.
I would suggest to mention on the webside that there are dogs running around, as not all guests like dogs. I meet two guests where I had to keep the dogs away from them.
