Our room here was for the most part quite nice. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the water pressure and heat were good, the location was great - just steps from the ocean. In fact, at night, when the tide was in, the waves crashed on the steps up to our bungalow, which was kind of neat. We did find a couple of large waterbugs / cockroaches in our room on a few occasions, and while that may be unavoidable in a location like this, it was kind of unpleasant. The power went out one night, leaving us without a fan and a sweltering hot room.
All of that is somewhat par for the course at this price range. What was not acceptable however, was the food. We ate at their restaurant the first night, and I think it was my worst meal in over a month in Southeast Asia. It was overpriced, which was the case for many of the restaurants right on the beach. But the serving sizes were tiny - seriously, the smallest serving of seafood I had in SEA, for the highest price, and it wasn't very good. And avoid the papaya salad - it tasted like a bowl of fish sauce with some vegetables in it. I can eat anything, and I wouldn't take more than a bite of this. My girlfriend somehow managed to put most of it down. I wish she hadn't; when I gave her a kiss good morning the next day, I thought she had been replaced in my bed overnight with a crab that had been dead and rotting on the beach for three days. It was one of those true tests of love. We made it through it though.
