We booked this hotel with trepidation after reading the other reviews on TripAdvisor but were plesently surprised once we arrived! The place is a 10 minute walk from the beach, and tucked away in the jungle. The rooms are simple, stand alone bamboo huts that are not flash, but clean and tidy. The hotel has a very cheap and tasty resturant with free breakfasts, and a pool and poolside bar. The rooms are a steep, yet quick, treck up a hillside into the jungle. Staff happily took our bags on arrivial and ran ahead with them.
What stood out for us the most were the friendly staff. The place is family owned and operated. One afternoon we were having a few drinks by the pool and got talking to the staff. After a few drinks with them, one of the younger staff members offered to take us out to some local clubs on the beach that night. We went out with him, and had a great time!
We planned to only stay 1 night at Banana Resort but ended up staying on for three and I cannot wait to return.
