I've stayed at The Lodge 3 or 4 times now as I prefer the quieter Fishermans Village. Koi, the manager (I guess) is lovely and helpful and it's pretty tranquil and cheap!
Saying that, I went with my boyfriend on my last visit and it seems the Frog & Gecko pub next door is much louder than ever before and music goes through until the early hours/morning at times.... this could be because we had the 'pent hut' on the top floor closest to the bar so the music came through the walls?!?! Anyway; it wasn't quite so tranquil and romantic as originally thought so we moved a week early to The Renaissance; a 5* down the road.... much bigger/less intimate and much much more expensive, but plush rooms/bathrooms.... I would return to the Lodge with mates though.....
Fishermans Village; great for restaurants although some expensive and more funky bars popping up at a rapid rate.... Chaweng great for nightlife and shopping (if you wear specs it's cheaper to fly there and have them made than getting them in the UK!!!)....
