We stayed 8 nights at one of the bungalows by the pool and had no trouble with any of the other guests staying in the bungalows. We ended up becoming quite good friends with them.
Yes there are roosters which may crow at odd hours, but there are roosters all over the island. After the first night, my partner slept right through the roosters and I just wore ear plugs.I hardly got bitten by mosquitoes but taking repellent is a good thing anywhere you go.
The size of the room great for the price you pay. All basic essentials provided as listed on their website. Location was fine for us. Guess it depends what you want to do on your holiday. We just hired a scooter and travelled into town and around the island. We navigated the island more because we didn't stay at a beach resort. We made more use of our days and had a couple of quiet dinners using the kitchenette in the room which saved on our budget for doing other activities on the island.
Security wise, we didn't have any issues and any valuables we were able to put in the safe at the office.
Definitely would consider staying again as we had an awesome time and staff were super friendly.
