We stayed there in mid Occt, 2012. It took 1 1/2 hrs to get there from the airport. Thirty minutes to the ferry, thirty minutes of waiting (well over an hour on the return-total of two hours to the airport) then thirty minutes to the hotel. after asking around, we found a sign for the hotel, then drove down a road so rough that we could not go much faster than idle speed. The room was mediocre, and the a/c unit poured water onto us when we entered and left the room, as well as making us walk through water. There were only two other couples staying there. The curry was good, but the food was otherwise lackluster. The internet was spotty, and the credit card machine did not work. There was no place to shop, buy souvenirs, or sightsee. The a/c was barely adequate.
If you want to sit on the beach and drink, this place is ok. Apparently, the locals pay a fee to walk through and use the beach, on the weekends, at which time it is packed.
