          Not very busy as it was low season but still a great atmosphere for travellers. Very reasonably priced ensuite room with a balcony with walking distance to the cliffs. Loved the garden hammocks and great wifi.

          Hi!! I am having some trouble getting a hold of Shiva Garden to make some sort of reservation/arrangements. I have tried calling but my phone tells me the number is invalid (likely my own error of some kind trying to internationally dial) and I have emailed them, but received no reply. This place gets great reviews and would really dig staying here for some time. Help!!
