I did not enjoy my stay at Diamond Guest House and advise you not to stay there.
Firstly, the location is not practical unless you have a car. It's a good 30 minute walk to the beach area (where the restaurants and shops are). Walking back would take even longer as it's all uphill. There is a local bus, but you have to get a prepaid ticket and they are not frequent.
We booked a "Junior Suite with Garden View". It was not a suite and we did not have a garden view. Our room was on the lower floor, which felt like a cave, and the view was of bush land scrub. The décor in the room was extremely dated, the room was dusty, and there were power sockets hanging out of the walls.
There was no air-conditioning, and we had to sleep with the windows closed as we were on the ground floor and it didn't feel secure.
The bathroom was full of mould, and the tiles on the floor were so slippery that I fell over a few times. There was no bath - only a shower, with some of the parts missing off the fittings.
The breakfast was average.
