We found this very like the food we remembered in the old rest houses when we visited in 1980. There was a good variety of vegetable curries at a very reasonable price, with as much as you wanted to eat. The adjoining old rest house where you had to go if you wanted to use the toilet was very much...

I was there in 2004 not 2015. Definitely not clean. What the terrible reviews state is basically true. What I loved is the location, the hotel architecture, and its far away from other tourists. Hotel serves an excellent whiskey sour. Most people would also be put off by the smell of drying fish. Its right on the beach so you...

Musty, dirty, dark, mosquito-ridden...these only begin to describe this place. Why it makes it into Rough Guide is beyond me. Our room was dirty and disgusting (the bathroom more so), the sheets didn't seem clean, and the mosquito net was dusty and full of holes. The bathroom was out right disgusting, moldy, full of mosquitoes and cobwebs, cold water ran...
