Cove Beach has decent basic bungalows with nice views, but their main area is shabby with damp-smelling shiny cushions, nails sticking out of the deck and dirty plates/empty gin bottles lying around. We had no electricity for part of the day and night (giving the generator a break as the electric lines were being fixed) and the kitchen was closed....

Great staff, very friendly and helpful!!! Excellent cocktails by Panha the local cocktail barman and great value. Wonderful views of the islands, with beautiful wooden bungalows surrounded by rainforest trees, definitely the best along the beach. You can also snorkell right off the sundeck and it's next to a nature trail. Came for two days, stayed for a week, that...

Was quite excited to stay at these bungalows as it was right on the water and we wanted to experience something different. The location is great and the views are beautiful, but unfortunately I had my worst travel experience ever here. The bathrooms the way that they are set up, have windows that allow for air ventilation but do not...

We spent two fantastic days here with a party of 4 adults, 5 children. Matt and his team could not have done more to make it a great time for us all. Their bungalows are great, all with balconies and ocean views - we took the three bedroom apartment right up the top, with the only downside for me being...

The place was recommended by a friend so booked for 6 nights. The manager and staff were very helpful with all my needs. The bungalows are new and sufficient for a relaxing holiday. The location on Serendipity Beach is great. The view and gentle breeze were exactly what I needed. Nothing is better to me than sitting at a seaside...

This was my second visit. The first was two years ago and since then the bungalows (on stilts) have all been revamped. Air conditioning has been fitted, new patio doors with better sound insulation as well. Licks of paint and varnish, whole new shower rooms have lifted this lovely set of rooms. Sorry this took so long to write Matt!!

This is a clean hotel with basic facilities. The staff were friendly and the sea side bar is defiantly a plus. Anyone looking for a reasonable room, near to bars and restaurants should defiantly consider this hotel. Don't be put off by the idea of a jungle hut. They were perfect for our needs.

Stayed here for 3 months enjoying the scenic view and fresh ocean breezes. The staff was honest and friendly (like family), and well managed. The best place to be in the heat of the day is down by the ocean. My bungalow was brand spankin new with fresh AC. Most bungalows in the are don't have AC.
