They try to squeeze money out of you like its their job. You have to put down a 1000 security deposit of which they took 550 out because they said I lost a towel and drank some of the water in the fridge. The food is alright but way to expensive. The drinks are rediculously overpriced about 700 a bucket. Also I was charged 140 to make a 5 minute phone call to request a transfer to the pier. The staff is rude and was unwilling to help. The beds are very uncomfortable and they don't provide blankets. Only sheets. The bathrooms are disgusting and had brown water constantly coming out. The beach is nice but you can't go in the water because of all the rocks. For the past two days I've been constantly hassled by staff and locals for taxis and to buy stuff on the beach. Pool is very nice but overall not worth staying here. Great location. Definitely visit for night life nearby but stay somewhe
