This place has such potential but sadly I cannot recommend it as the rooms were like a sauna. It was very difficult to sleep and I would say it was lucky to drop below 35c at night in the room and 45c during the day. They should charge an extra $5 a night and provide air con, then I would consider staying again. Apart from the fight to secure toilet paper, the cleanliness was debate able and the bathrooms were overheating with no ventilation. Small window in each was boarded up from the outside!
It's unfortunate because its in a great location in Muri Lagoon with amazing snorkeling at your doorstep, a well stocked shop next door and all that Muri has to offer within a 5min walk. The actual building is very nice with good facilities but very difficult to enjoy with the extreme heat inside. Nice garden too, well equipped kitchen although you were not able to change the gas jets on the stove so you had to watch over your cooking so it didn't burn. Mix up with my reservation which was unable to be fixed but people in the larger courtyard rooms also complained of extreme heat in their rooms.
Floor and bench spaces in common areas could do with a good clean, and add air con and ill consider staying again, otherwise better to go elsewhere.
