My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and were overall pleased. The bathroom was clean and functional but the shower water pressure was low and made showering a challenge. The location is at the beginning of the beach but we found this quieter and with the pool an added bonus for a guest house within this price range....

This was recommended by our tuk tuk driver on arrival so we were a little concerned. We had another place in mind but no booking.

Stayed for afew nights & loved it! Pool is on the small side with only 2 loungers but its quaint & has plenty of room in the restaurant / dining area to relax. Food was fantastic & slightly higher than other b&bs but definitely worth it! Everyone couldn't do enough for you & I'd recommend to anyone, great little hotel.

My wife and I were reluctantly steered hear by the tuk tuk driver that picked us up at the bus station. Always skeptical, we had the driver also bring us to three other hotels of our choosing to get a feel for the area. The owner showed me three rooms and between the very reasonable price, the fresh water pool,...

I planned to stay at Makara only one night, but finally I spent there 4 nights. It is a new, small place with a very friendly and helpful owner and staff. The room are comfortable and very clean. Nice pool, good kitchen, good location at the quiet end of Ochheuteal Beach. Good value for a very reasonable price.
