Stayed here for 4 nights, paid 45 USD from booking.com due to high season. The hotel staff aren't smiling like the rest of the island, they are rude. they wanted all nights pay up front. We paid them 3 nights up front, they insisted we pay all nights Same day found places for 25$/ night but that was my fault for booking online to guarantee a room. The hotel never cleaned our room first 3 nights, but I saw them clean many others, the third day I told them please clean my room, I'm paying 45$ atleast do your job, they forgot and I got back to my room by nighttime to find it the same way. I went back to conplain, 1 hour later (10pm) they came to clean the room. Horrible service, especially during high season I suppose. This place is far from a "resort" . It's also a known hostel for north Asians and they were there in a group of 40 pple. Not a place for globetrotters. The rooms are old. something I usually paid 15$-20$ for during my 3 months stay in SOuth East Asia. The only good thing is that it's located in front of a ok beach, but you'd need a motorbike to see the nicer ones, they wanted to charge me 350B for a motorbike, I found one 15 minutes away for 200B, when I came back and told them they didn't care so I rented the one down the road. The third day I saw them bringing people from the pier, and I had seen they ha d a pickup to transport people, so I asked the owner if they could drop us at the pier (150B-200B by taxi) for free cause we were there for 4 nights, she had said yes.
As you can except the last day we packed our bags and had our included breakfast( which is 2 eggs and bread and jam, juice, was ok) and hopped in the truck, the owners son told us he couldn't go, he was busy, and said please take a taxi.... I told him the owner had agreed to take us, he didn't care walked away frustrated and told us to deal with it, I tried to explain but he had changed the rules and told us go by yourself, he had no care about us or our boat schedule, he said he was understaffed and he had no time. Fuming I left in search of the owner, found her in the kitchen and told her I just want to catch my boat...: you had agreed to bring us to the pier, so she called her son who finally put his pride aside and brought us. The whole experience was a disaster, it was the most expensive/worst accommodating hotel I had stayed in during my 4 month trip.
The rooms are in front of a pond that is dirty and full of garbage, the room looked to the ocean that was beautiful but the view is spoiled by 2 rotting golf carts in the field. There is a garbage bin ouside but they never empty it, it was overflowing with garbage. If I had paid 15$ a night I'd expect this kind of thing. Do yourself a favor, don't stay here, further down the road there are some bungalows for cheaper and with great bars by the ocean. I'd only suggest this hostel to my enemies....if I had one.
