This is a budget hotel. I stayed here as I was diving with Ocean Sounds Dive + Yoga and I wanted to be very close to the yoga studio (the furthest point from the hotel to the yoga studio is 100 m). I stayed in the air-con bungalow with hot water for 5 nights. After reading all the bad reviews...

We stared here as part of a scuba certification package with Ocean Sound Dive + Yoga. The hotel is barely a minute's walking distance from both the dive school and several great restaurants and shops, to say little of a small, quiet and lovely beach. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful too. All that said, the wifi was a...

Great beach! That's the last positive thing I have... Some of the staff are really difficult and aggressive staff- to the point of being hostile. The room I stayed in looked over a fairly busy road so be prepared for hooting cars and souped up scooter sound track. Rooms are way out of date and in poor condition, not cleaned...

The staff is the most unfriendly staff i have ever seen. They were close to insult us because we were 15 minutes late for the check out. A friend that we have met in the resort had a scooter accident, he had stitches on his head and on his knee and the only thing that the reception told him was...

Very unfriendly staff, only cleaned when we added two more days to our three day booking, had to PAY FOR additional toilet paper. Had to pay $15 extra per day for air conditioning then were lectured for leaving it on. Property itself was well maintained and the beach was lovely at night. Never ate there as there are so many...

We wouln't stay there again. We had pre-booked three nights, as part of a dive course package. Our first room was really dirty, so we asked to change rooms shortly after we arrived. (Travelling for a long time, we're used to budget accomondation and certainly not picky...) When we asked politely, the lady at the reception seemed annoyed but let...

The room was full of ants and smelled of sewer. Wi-fi does not work at all. Very ignorant and hostile staff! There was always 6-7 ladies sitting in the restaurant browsing Facebook at their own private working internet. The two male waiters were amazing though!!

My room was on the road side of the resort and very, very noisy. The room itself was clean enough (don't mind the cob webs on the walls & ceiling) but dark & dingy. I've been traveling for nearly a year now on a small budget & this is one of the most unpleasant stays I've had. The walls were...

We had triple with AC. Island/beach clean. They inform you that they clean very 2 days rather than every day, which is fine except they didn't clean at all. There is a broom in the room to help you keep the sand out. AC a must and perfect this time of year. We had ants invade one of our backpacks...
