The brochure makes this place look like a nice beach front resort with quiet little bungalows.
The reality is somewhat different. I booked 5 days in a room with a fan. I don't mind not having air-conditioning. What I do mind is having a filthy room that smells like something crawled into it and died. I checked out the bathroom to find ants all over the place. The bathroom sink was absolutely filthy and only had a trickle of water that was on constantly. The lime scale encrusted shower head produced no water when you turned it on. When I complained the staff offered to spray some bug spray in the bathroom and then went to turn the water on. He did nothing about the sink and never came back with the bug spray after he turned the water on.
The communal area is definitely the same room as in the photo on the brochure but the photo must have been taken years ago. All the seating cushions were filthy and worn out and most of the communal area was covered in the toys from the owner's children and the owner's mother was asleep in the middle of the floor. The place was not anywhere that you wanted to spend any amount of time.
I only just got here and I can tell you that I will be spending the afternoon looking for somewhere else to stay for the next 5 days. Whether I can get my money back or not, which I doubt I will, I'm not staying in this ant infested flea pit.
