It's no joke, what the others have said; It's a terrible place. It's a tourist trap. Once you get there, you really have no other choice, since it's in the middle of no where.
I went for the Family Chalet, we changed from 1 chalet to another, and finally, the staff had to admit, that it wouldn't make a difference because they are all the same. Unless of course, we go for the expensive renovated Chalet.
That's basically the same lousy place, with the rotten boards replaced with concrete walls and added a few basic luxuries you get in any hotel today. Seriously overpriced.
The as it is, version, does not give you what it promises. I either take the one with the fridge door that swings open, or the one whose doors close but doesn't cool.
Some windows were broken, and the the toilet window of the chalet I chose had no glass sheets at all, so the monkeys can look directly at you as you shower.
Well, the chalets were old and under kept, so you can imagine they each will have their own sets of missing this and faulty thats.
Beware the groups of monkeys and wild dogs that roam the area scavenging. They mostly stay away from humans, but the monkeys will climb all over your roof, and start hissing at you when you encounter them.
During monsoon season, the waves are vicious, so do not expect to go for a swim. The day I check in, a few people got pulled out to sea, while playing along the shore lines.
if you don't mind backpackers stay, then it's quite spacious, comes with air conditioning, and private garage. but bare in mind you won't feel safe living there alone.
