Stayed here initially for 1 night and arrived late at night after a flight. The following night we camped on an island just off the coast but then came back to Casuarina. Staff were really accommodating when it came to us leaving bags, getting more rooms etc. We paid approx. $30 AUD per night booked through Agoda.
The hotel is really close to terminal 2 of the airport. It is still approx. 25RM in a taxi but you could actually walk if you didn’t have much luggage as it’s about a ten min walk. When we arrived the staff were friendly and helpful. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. There was no safe in the room however there was a safe we could use in reception and that was no problem. The rooms had comfortable, clean beds and there was air-con, tea/coffee facilities and a fridge. The bathroom was a good size and the shower was hot and powerful. On first impression it seemed like there wasn’t much around the hotel itself howevere we discovered we were right next to the beach which is mainly an area where locals hang out rather than lots of tourists. There are some beachside restaurants and also a night food market which had great cheap food. It’s a little drive out of town but the hotel has a useful shuttle bus which we used to get into town a couple of times. Breakfast was included and was fried eggs, toast and baked beans.
To add to comments previously written about the lift – yes it’s small but it works! If you don’t want to use it there are stairs instead.
I’d happily stay here again – great value for money.
