I stayed by myself for 3 nights and am very happy I chose Papillon Bungalows. It was lovely to have your own little bungalow with hammock and access to dvds, and the food was excellent too. Breakfast was on til 11 which was nice, for those who like to lie in! From my arrival to departure I felt very welcome and Jens and Caroline are very friendly and always available if you need help or advice. It was only a 5 minute walk down to the beach and I also loved the food at Lymm's Rice Bowl. Would love to return!

We only stayed 4 nights and wished we had booked for longer. The individual rustic bungalows are fairly small but then you soon get used to that. It is a quiet area and so near to the most fabulous beach. The breakfast is good and the host, hostess and staff are very friendly and very helpful. You can borrow DVDs for free to play in the bungalow; there is free WiFi available in the public area and poolside. The gardens are lovely. TukTuk's pass the resort all the time if you want to get into Saladin and restaurants are within a 5 - 10 walk. There is also a fabulous beach restaurant where you can eat on the beach called Lym's Rice Bowl.

We stayed here for 6 days with 3 small kids and had a great stay! The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed and personal. Even though the standard in bungalows is average we rather stay in small places like Papillon that is run by heart than in more upmarket and impersonal resorts. Bungalows are clean with a nice terrace with your own hammock! Very childfriendly pool and restaurantarea with hammocks, toys and dvd-library. Delicious food and very good breakfast. The beach is a 100 m walk but is very beautiful and secluded with lots of treeshadow and a very friendly familyrun restaurant. We really appreciated this place a lot and do recomend it.

We stayed at Papillon for a month in January 2013, such a cosy little resort with excellent staff that made you feel like one in the family. Nice clean bungalows, close to the ocean and lovely food in the resturant. The owners are very much willing to help out with travelling arrangements and ideas for day trips.

Strong recomendations for this lovely resort!

Stayed for one week with two kids in Dec '12. very nice resort in - for our needs - perfect location. Small and tiny bungalows in a very nice garden with great pool also. 5 min from the best beach of the Island. small middle sized resort so you won't be stuck together to your neighbors!
rooms are not huge if you stay in 4 like we did...But indeed very clean and functional..

We stayed for 6 nights at the beginning of our 3 week Xmas vacation and really enjoyed our time here. The location is ideal, close to a great spot on the beach and some good restraunts nearby.
The only con was I thought it was a bit overpriced compared to other places on long beach.
Apart from that I would recommend this place to all,especially those with young children.
