I've read all the threads but I'm still not sure what the best option is.
We arrive MLE at 11:00AM and our Liveaboard transfer doesn't pick us up until 4PM at the coffee shop. We're sitting in front so will be amongst the first off the plane and thru customs/ immigration in a jiffy, (no other flights arv at that time).
Our previous night is in Singapore so we don't need a dayroom.
I have a few days in Thailand but my husband is flying straight thru from the US so he'll be fairly jetlagged.
I'm trying to figure out if we should bother storing our 4 bags ($20usd) and go into town, (maybe the Sea House Restaurant?), or just slum it at one of the "restaurants" at the airport, (which sound more like snack bars), or at The Hulehule Hotel: I hear they charge $40pp and that includes use of pool? -- does it also include luggage storage?
Not trying to be cheap -- but hate to waste $$.
