Staff were all very helpful and friendly. Particularly a guy named Anas, has night shift at reception. He was super informative about the various sights and hot...

If you're looking for a relaxing, quiet, affordable, and beautiful stay, this is the place.It's located right on top of a cliff overlooking the beach. Eagles coast all day along the edge of the cliff and dive for fish and crabs. The main shopping and restaurant area is only 100rs and 15 min away. The food is also cooked fantastically.
