The owner is very helpful and friendly. When some guests showed up without a booking, he helped them find other accomodation before booking them in the next day! He made sure everyone is well taken care of. Though my booking was screwed up, he apologized and went striaght to finding me another place to stay for 1 night at the same price as offered. The vibe at the resort is very nice, divers and travellers just hang out at the bar around to talk and mingle around. There is a dive school which is a little on the expensive side but the staff were very friendly too!
The backpackers' rooms come with shared bathroom but the room itself is pretty spacious and comfortable, towels and linen provided. Only bad thing is the cocks crowing every morning at 4am which makes for not a good night's sleep. But if you sleep like a log, highly recommend this place
Enjoyed my time staying there
