I went there in march 2014. We were supposed to spent 5 nights and finally we spent only 23 hours!!!! I'm a backpakers, but I need a little bit of comfort. The place is nice, I was happy when I saw the place, but when I saw my room, it was horrible. It was a hard-packed surface, all in wood, no window. The shower is outside fixed with a rope in a tree. The toilett is outside too, the toilet paper humid. We did a small grocery in the day. We put our bread on the top of the cupboard, but during the night we heard something, it was a rat eating our bread.
Never again. Horrible!
Finally, the place, ce went there to dive, the dive shop was close at 2 pm, nobody can tell us if it's nice to dive there. The beack is not so nice, the wves are very hard, like dangerous (even if i'm a very good swimmer)
