A brief summary of this hotel: cheap, beautiful, clean, next to a beach, great (massive) breakfasts, great pizza, friendly and caring staff, supplies glow-in-the-dark paint for free on Full Moon party nights, and way too windy to actually play badminton. It has a swimming pool which was fine. It's quite small which is nice and the accommodation is made up... More

It's the second time I stayed here and the standard is still very good. Nice affordable rooms, great food, and a lovely small beach in front of the hotel. The staff are great and really attentive and cheerful and always made me laugh. They had wifi throughout the whole hotel which i needed for work. Will definitely be coming back.... More

We had to switch to a smaller room to avoid the damp smell. No refund was offered to us. The air conditioning barely worked and the blinds on the window... More

Wonderful resort, great place to stay for the Full Moon or Half Moon party. The place is absolutely gorgeous and the food at the restaurant is top-notch. The rooms are clean, bedding is comfortable and staff are quite friendly.

The best waiters I've seen so far. Well trained but chilled at the same time, happy and laughing all the time. Nice to be in such a positive place. Food was average though.
