Just back from 4 days at Agonda Cottages, and I can't praise this place enough.
Right on the beach, there are about 12 huts on either side of a sand covered pathway, with an outdoor dining/bar/sitting around area, with a reception desk and kitchen. The dining area has a fantastic view of the beach, and is only a few steps from it.
The cottages consist of one bedroom with a roofless bathroom area attached. They are clean, good sizes, very comfortable and very nicely decorated. The outside bathroom is slightly strange but fun, with a western toilet, sink, and solar shower.
The restaurant area has tables in the shade as well as sun loungers in the sun. There are also more of these on the beach.
The food and drink is simply amazing. Fresh fish, curries, western breakfasts, cocktails, and western snacks and burgers are available, and pretty much everything we had was excellent, with very large portions. I'd recommend the mozzarella sticks, the snapper, and watermelon fresh cocktails.
The service is excellent, and every staff member was helpful and friendly. I got a real impression that the people who work here, even the ladies who clean the rooms, were genuinely friendly and enjoyed working there, which gave a great impression (even if they were all acting!).
I haven't felt so relaxed in years. If I could have got a pint a Guinness I may never have come home! I will certainly be going again.
Re: Price. At current exchange rates we paid about £35 per night for two of us sharing, plus an extra £120 max for food and drink (and that was for a lot of cocktails and Kingfisher!)
