I decided to stay here only because of the view overlooking the ocean from the 2nd floor of one of the houses and only after haggling a considerable discount from the initial price.
The room is ok at best. Clean and large enough with a double bed, but that's it. No wardrobe or clothes hook of any kind. I had to use my backpack for that purpose. Doors squeak like hell, every time I went out or to the bathroom, I let all the neighbourhood know that. The water usually runs about a couple of minutes and then stops, if you are unlucky to be in the middle of having a shower, you're screwed.
Breakfast is average, you get a pancake and a cup of tea/coffee (Flashback: In Ubud for 10$/night I was having a sandwich/pancake, a fruit plate and unlimited tea/coffee as on my table on the terrace there was a thermos with hot water and tea/coffee/sugar all the time!).
WiFi exist in the form of a ghost, you can find it only sometimes (not every day), only near the breakfast/tables area and only until 10 am, then it stops working.
Sleeping here is problematic due to roosters just under the fence, who tend to shout all the day (and night, yes) and also someone sawing and chopping wood in the morning. I literally could not sleep and had to use earplugs every day. Bed is soft though and has a mosquito net.
The beach is 20 meters away but rocky and hardly usable as a normal beach for swimming/beach activities.
Service is ok, staff can help you with most of your necessities and are generally friendly. They change sheets and towels every two days. And they don't force you to pay by day. However be careful. At first the elderly lady tried to charge me for 8 night (as days), though I was staying 7. And then she decided to keep silent about 10% extra charge (for tax or whatever), that I only learned about when I had to actually pay. The only time during my journey that I saw this.
Giving 3 stars for the money I paid (remember, I haggled hard). But for the price on booking sites you'd be better off in many other places.
