Our bungalow was right on the beach so it was perfect view not only from our porch but also our room windows. The room was pretty small but the bed was big. There was nowhere for us to put our suitcases nor even a cupboard to hang clothes etc so we had to leave our bags on the ground & continually step over them. The bathroom was very basic too, I'm not a fan of when the shower is not seperated as all the water gets over the basin & toilet & the ground is constantly wet. We were told wifi was only available in public areas but it worked in our room & funnily enough had better reception than the restaurant. We stayed for 3 nights & on the last night got upgraded. This was because our porch light did not work, we had no hot water & our shower head broke so we had to shower by using it like a garden hose. I wasn't expecting an upgrade so I was pleasantly surprised. The room we were upgraded to next door was much more spacious as it had a couch, wardrobe, desk, vanity, & space for our bags. If you're staying for longer than 2 nights I recommend paying extra to get a bigger room as you'll be much more comfortable. The breakfast is good & the food is reasonably priced but if you venture outside of the hotel you can find better value. After reading other reviews I instantly knew the waiter that others had wrote about. He's not that bad, he just makes the same bad jokes every time you see him, but he means well. Reception are really helpful with booking tours & transport too. Finally, bring some insect repellant, when we had dinner we were getting bitten so much!
