We had stayed at pool villa here a few years ago and loved the quiet location, beautiful empty of people beach and hot shallow water. Easy walks to local restaurants and a daily walk to relax massage parlor where 4 ladies give wonderful inexpensive massages under a thatched roof open sided building
We went back this year to what we thought was a new motel unit added in our 5 year absence. The motel unit is part of the cheap looking next door resort. The interior of the room is as inferior as the surrounding resort whose rooms must cost a lot less than what we payed.
There is a restaurant attached now but it serves very mediocre tourist food, bland by all standards. The beach, on windy days has become the number one windsurfing spot for the island. Fine if you are windsurfing, hazardous otherwise from novice windsurfers.
The resort grounds are not landscaped and the beach was only cleaned when the owners appeared for a visit.
