    Comfortable enough

    I loved this place, I didn’t expect it to be amazing, and it wasn’t. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was terrible, they might need to review their options for this. The best on offer is omelette which is twice a week and fruits. The menu had a lot of options. I quite enjoyed everything I had off that menu. The WiFi is almost non existent. It rarely works, very frustrating but when it decides to work, it’s decent enough. The room was comfortable enough for what I paid. I booked the round hut which was small but was upgraded to a sea view room which was more spacious. Rooms are cleaned everyday though they are stingy with towels. There’s 2basic single beds in each room some drawers, storage space and a mosquito net. The bathroom again very basic, shower toilet sink. Hotel is next to the beach and there’s a nice deck outside the restaurant. It’s also on the main road for taxis to anywhere else. For the price I paid I had a pleasant stay.
