We stumbled across the hotel having survived the heat to reach the island. The only room free was a non-ac bungalow with a sea view...the only problem was that the bungalow was basically up a hill, a very very steep hill. yes there were steps but for the unfit like me I did slightly struggle (altough the man who ran up it with my suitcase on his head didn't!). We paid £25 a night during high season, and I felt this was a little high for a basic bungalow with no ac. The view though was...absolutely breathtaking, there's no words to describe it!!!!!!!!! The bungalow was cleaned daily and the mini- bar restocked, there was also cable tv and free flipflops(!!). The pool was GREAT very clean and lovely and cool. Even though there weren't many chairs it never got too crowded.
My main reservations:
1) It was soooooooooooo hot without no ac at night, we hardly slept and this was the main reason we moved out.
2) Either there were mice in the room which pooed everywhere including in my suitcase (ok we were in the middle of the jungle on a mountain!!!!) or when the birds pooed on the roof, it came through the ceiling?! Not sure which but we kept a night on at night to look out for mice/ bird poo.
All in all perfect for "flashy" backpackers. There was a huge range of accomodation at the resort and i've no idea what the rest was like although ours was most rustic.
