Got picked up from the port via the hotel pickup, there were 10 of us cramped into the back of the pickup truck. The road was dusty so be prepared for it as the island is still developing, new drainage, new roads, new properties so Im not surprised. Straight into the rooms, the design was clearly aged, the beds could...

Check in on 14/02/2017. the shed was not very clean, we found a lizard in bed !!! The only advantage of this hotel is the fact to be near to the pier. So you need bike to go to the downtown. Not the best beach around. Reception closed at 10pm WiFi doesn't realy work, very low signal. Emine & Jabrane...

Good location on the beach with good snorkelling, (free equipment), rooms up the back on the hill are quiet and well appointed. A short walk to the little street bustling with restaurants and shops. Would recommend.

We stayed here for a few days over Christmas. Lovely little family run hotel (with a very cute puppy too!) The rooms were great - the bed was almost TOO comfortable - I didn't want to get out of it each day. You do sometimes get little lizards in the bathroom, but it's no problem at all. They're actually quite...

We arrived on the night of 11/13/2016 and did not bother with the bad reviews on trip adviser. We wanted to have our own experience and opinion. It was impossible to sleep peacefully. All bungalows had giant lizards inside and outside. I believe that there are people who like this kind of contact with nature but for us that we...

really nice hotel just along from the harbour and a nice distance away from the main part of town, peaceful at night. Bungalows were an average size however the fans in the room weren't great and we often woke up during the night sweating! You can pay extra for air con but as backpackers we didn't pay for it, I...
