First let me say that as you can see on the pictures the floor and most of the bathroom walls are raw concrete that has been coated. If this is not your taste, consider staying somewhere else. We liked it, but we thought that this should be pointed out. Also one should know that the hotel is situated in the middle of a fishing village. Life starts early here, so expect to hear according noise as the sun rises. But if you take the chance to get up early and go to the beach, you´ll find that a lot of people do their exercise there in the morning. We went to the beach early in the morning and late in the evening before sunset.
We had the room on the first floor of the Coco Villa. The room was clean, everything worked as expected. The bed had a soft top layer to make it more comfortable for European visitors. The AC worked silently, so one can sleep well. When we arrived, our fridge was stuffed with water and different drinks including beear, coke, 7up etc. There were snacks, coffee, fresh fruit. Some of these were free, other did cost a small amount of money. In addition to this, we had a brand new TV, a ceiling fan and a dimmable bedlight.
But the thing that made the week we stayed here so extraordinary was the service. Dung, who was introduced to us as receptionist, cared for us in a way noone had ever done before. She fed our child (3,5 years old), she went to the market with us to buy food which she and the ther ladies then prepared for us. She gave me motorbike ride to the ATM when I ran out of cash. She came early in the morning and left late in the evening. Together with the two other ladies she was the good soul of this place.
In the first evening we ate out in a reataurant clled "Soul Kitchen", some 800m away down the beach. The food was good, the view was perfect and they had live music. But the food we had there can not compare to what Dung and her Ladies prepared for us. I encourage everyone to ask Dung to arrange dinner.
We will definetely be coming back.
