The Papillon was quite a pleasant resort. The room wasn't the newest but it was quite spacey. The bed was good not too soft and AC worked good. We asked for a blanket but they only had another sheet. Maybe because the owners weren't there at the time. The bed lamp was too low and I hit my head more than once. The restaurant was good (they even made my curry really spicy which is hardly ever the case even if I ask all the time) as was the breakfast. There is definitely space for improvement for the gardens, imho it needs a bit more (tropical) planting and some ground covers would make a difference. The pool is quite small but pleasant as long as not the kids take over. It was a couple of minutes walk to the beach, but the bars and restaurants there were closed (apart from the flash Layana) at this time of the year, you had to walk around ten minutes. Thanks to Caroline for helping us with the Taxi Mafia.
