This place is the most basic, I had a room on the second floor, it was about 38 degress at midnight and no air conditioning. So it was a hot night however, the location made up for it, right on the beach and to sleep hearing the waves crashing on the shore was really nice. The restaurant served food and...

We enjoyed it very much to stay in little pumpkin cabanas. The people that work there are so friendly and helpful. We loved the food there and it is a amazing spot next to the beach, even for those people who like it more relaxed. We would always come back.

+ Cabana was good, nice bed and clean. + Just in front of the beach + Very friendly and helpful owner + Quiet place to stay, nice location + Extremely delicious rice and curry Two points for improvement: better WiFi and the quality of the hammocks and beachbeds.. They are old and need a fix.

Me and my friend stayed there for two nights and we loved it. The beach is almost empty, although you couldnt swim because of the strong waves. Cabanas are clean and lovely, especially ones with sea view. Location is right next to the sea, breakfast is served on the terrace looking over the waves.
