Ideal for Backpackers, but frankly couples and families were equally at home. Great range of room types, obviously not the Sheraton, but you'll be pleasantly surprised i.e. at each room level/type the offering is better than you'd expect at that pricepoint. Loved my stay, completely relaxed, be as involved or as on your own as you like. Will definitely go back
The location is perfect. White Beach,Palm Trees, Hammocks and all. Spend 2 nights with the Gf and her and i enjoyed it very much.We stayed in the Frangipani Rooms and had no complains about the room. Their were no towels but the ladies were quick to get us some. The only issue we had was that the food were quite expensive and you really don't get what you paid for. For $24.95 you get a steak burger where it looks like the cheese was just taken out of the packet and put in. I suggest you buy snacks from town. Lady in Reception was friendly and was kind enough to keep our bags in the back on our last day.
But for a budget location, it's perfect. Would definitely return with friends.
Booked a Double Room Frangipani for a single night, i was previously in a beautiful island for a couple of days.
Oh well, arrived there was already 6pm, so quite dark, it is beachfront and a beautiful place. The double room looks ok, open shower, all beautiful. But my nightmare started once i decided to go to sleep, when i realised it was full of bugs (on top of the bed), went to reception and asked to change my room, the lady very helpful gave me the key to a room in front of the one i was. And it looked the same, bugs all over the bed. Ok thinking i was being to picky I just got a bug spray and sprayed around the bed before I sleep. For my surprise when I woke up my legs were alll 'bed ‘bugs bitten', seriously, after a week in an island paradise I ended up in this place, i couldn’t believe. Ladies in the reception told me it was 'only ants bites', well not really, and i got a terrible allergy after that. Manager was kind and fare enough to return my money and i left the hotel in the morning heading somewhere else cleaner.
There is a compulsory meal plan (bfast and dinner). But breakfast is really poor, not even fruits... and for dinner, get there early otherwise you might have to stick with what is left without a choice.
We loved our stay at Beachouse. It has a really welcoming family vibe and it's clear that everyone gets on. It's in a beautiful little cove with hammocks/chars to sit in overlooking the ocean.
They arrange daily excursions to islands/inland to villages and waterfalls which are all reasonably priced.
There is volleyball daily which is a highlight!
The food and drinks were really good and again reasonably priced.
Our room had a lot of ants in when we first got there but the staff sorted it immediately and we didn't have any trouble with the room from then on.
Wi-Fi is free and available in the communal areas.
Would definitely recommend.
Good venue and nice location but very overpriced food and drink and such rude staff. Not welcoming at all. Luckily the fellow travellers I met were friendly enough but we all agreed that the staff should really learn how to smile and not just throw your change at you. Will never stay here again. Very uncomfortable beds too and extremely loud, people screaming at midnight then again at 6am outside the room. Broken fan and people having sex in the room that weren't even guests here. Such a shame as it is a good venue but fails on everything else. Not recommended to anyone
