My wife and I stayed here for one night, but had originally planned for 3. It wasn't that it was terrible, but I think we've just got a little older and want a little more comfort - it was pretty surprising to us!
A year or two ago it would have been perfect for us, but I admit that we wanted a little more comfort. The bungalow was very cute, the view from the balcony was out to the beach, and t had a really pretty bathroom, covered in shells. But the four walls and ceiling didn't meet, as is the case with a typical bungalow, so geckos and ants were in all their glory. Not so bad, but the gecko poo on the bed was a bit much. The bed also smelled of sweat - must have been pretty old. When we checked in the guy wasn't exactly the most friendly dude either, and the food in the restaurant wasn't all that, although that didn't seem to be a problem for the millions of flies that homed in when we tried to eat.
The same evening we checked in we walked down the beach and found somewhere else - more expensive, yes, but like I said, we were willing to pay for a bit more comfort. If you're looking for a cheap place, then this is fine. You get what you pay for.
The location is great. Bottle Beach is gorgeous, and very remote.
We ended up at Bottle Beach Resort 1, if you're interested.
