10/10 Exceptional

Wonderful, memorable stay
As previous reviews stated perfectly, this is not a ritzy accommodation- but you will meet high class people and have a positive, memorable experience. I would stay again without hesitation. Best aspects: - Kem, the owner, as well as the other staff, are extremely kind, attentive and dedicated to making sure you have absolutely everything you need. - Goofy, the resident rescue beach dog, is a kind, gentle and social pup who will be a highlight of your stay. - The food and drinks are great and reasonably priced. - The bungalows are located just up from the social hub of the beach, allowing for both easy access to the hot spots or a quieter escape when you need it. - The view from the dining area is stunning! Photos don’t do it justice. - My single room was spacious and comfortable - Shelves and hangers for clothing storage are a plus - Mosquito net is provided - There is no AC, but the fan installed directly above the bed is more than enough to keep you comfortable. Things to be aware of: - The walls are super thin, the floors are creaky and the roosters are dedicated announcers of the sunrise; I suggest bringing ear plugs and/or downloading a “white noise” app on your phone. - You’ll be taking cold showers (a standard on the island) but the water pressure is good. - The walk up to the bungalow is a rocky, dirt path. It is certainly manageable, but something to be aware of if you are not wearing sturdy shoes and/or have a rolling suitcase.
