“Overpriced, difficult reach”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights. The bungalow is relatively far from the main street. The entrance is some 50 meters away from the road and there is some construction going on which makes walking up to the place difficult even in the day. Even if you hire a horsecart you will have to carry your luggage on a narrow path with many obstacles. And the staff did not bother to offer to carry even one of our bags. Beach in front of this place is not swimable. Breakfast was very average. They gave us bicycles with no air in the tires and they had no replacement.

We had to ask for the rooms to be cleaned. A white scorpion somehow got inside one of our bags and my wife was stung by it. Scorpions can sneak into any of the places in this island so be very careful and don't leave your bags open. Though they are not venomous my wife suffered a lot for pain for almost a day.

Room Tip: Ask them to clean the rooms everyday.

It started with one of the staff members that is hanging around all day in the facilities and that was spiting on the terras floor just in front of us...

The bungalow we got is totally outdated (nr 12): everything is outdated, you need to ask for cleaning. There are newer bungalows, most likely for the same price we paid - which is a completely policy as what we got was a real shame.

The cusions at the swimming pool are filthy and totally worn out.

There were ashes in our asht-ray on arrival - they didn't clean - and we don't smoke.

The breakfast is at backpacker facility level - nothing wrong with backpacker hostels, but when paying 4 to 4 times the price, we expected a better breakfast.

For the amount we paid (50Euro a night) this is a schame. I have done already 3 months + of traveling in Indonesia and this was for sure the worst value for money. The price should be 15 Euro a night, not 50.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere.

Very cheap bungalows situated on the beatiful north coast of GT. We were somewhat surprised to se that the photos on the website didn't match reality. But given the really good price, you get what you pay for: A place to stay with nice clean sheets and towels and tropical beach 30 m from the bungalow. That being said the bungalows are quite dirty, the bathrooms disgustingly filthy with plumbing in toilet and sink not working (no water to flush, water splashing all over your feet when using the sink )the pool is much smaller than it seems on the photos, but clean and nice. The staff is friendly.

Room Tip: make sure the plumbing is working - otherwise insist on a different room
