Super yummy food, friendly people and cheap prices! Went for dinner in the evening and had a delicious selection of curries with beer, mostly veggie options with some meat, very good value for money along with great service.

We brought our laundry to this place because it was way cheaper than in our own guest house. But there was a reason it was so cheap. Some of our clothes came back with pink stains. The family made promises to fix it all. After 4 tries and the same amount of promises being broken we ended up with stained clothes and not even a return of the money we payed for the laundry. A price that was way less than the costs of the clothes that have to be rebought. Horrible experience, the family is not as friendly as they pretend to be!

My friend and I stayed for 4 nights. The room is basic but clean with a private bathroom. During the 3 first nights, everything was ok. We didn't chat a lot with the family but our relationship was normal. There is a restaurant is the hotel. Everything is overpriced and usual prices are not respected. In addition, You will be charged 10% for service, even if you buy a bottle of water. It's the only restaurant around that do such thing. For our fourth night, we had to change room because ours was booked. We had another one, with shared bathroom. At night, there was a general electricity shut down in the village. When we came back to our room, there were the hotel generator just next to our window. It was very noisy and smelly. We couldn't breathe fresh air. Only diesel. We asked them to change room because it wouldn't be possible to sleep. They answered that they had no room available (I have serious doubt about it) so we decided to pack and leave. At the beginning, they asked us 5 nights instead of 3. We payed 3 but we didn't want to pay for the last. The started to threaten us. They circled our vehicle and yelled at us. All the family was there. They were 5 or 6 people yelling at us. We asked to call the police but the woman of the guesthouse is policewoman so it's useless. This situation lasts more than 1 hour. We were stucked in our vehicle and we couldn't do anything. They wanted us to pay for the night we didn't spend! They were extremely agressive. They insulted us many times. We had no choice to give them money. No one in the area helped us at this time.

1500rps for a nice clean room, double bed, ceiling fan, mosquito net, 5 min walk from beach (cut through Fernando's) AND breakfast. Can't go wrong. I've stayed in more expensive absolute hovels. The family were very friendly and welcoming, the son Archie speaks perfect English.
