(Pros) The property itself was wonderful and beautiful, clean and well-kept. Big balcony with one hammock and a wood bench. Sufficient kitchen amenities (fridge, microwave, stove and dishes). Comfy beds and sheets. AC available. Bottled water provided. Now, we think that the

Being over the water is a very unique experience at this price level. But many of the neighboring homes are locals that just dump their garbage directly into the water. The water around the cabin was clear but full of trash. It's not the owner's fault. The property itself seems

So what are the options for lunch and dinner - are there restaurants near by? I do not plan to cook!

"Sewage running down the side of the hotel/bungalows"
"Cabins further out are better."
"Ask owners ahead of time about termites in each room - I think others might not have been as bad as ours"

"All the cabins are good. The two further out are the best."
US$108 - US$137 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
