Teenage staff, they spend their days tunning the engine of their sport cars in front of the rooms, until late at night, football games in the playground behind until 2 a.m. with croud shouting at every action, room full of mosquitos and antz, broken shower with very low water pressure, antique aircon that almost don't refresh the room, and make far too much noise as well, i'll never go back there...

Not my favorite hotel...
We stayed for just one night and it wasn't exactly comfortable. The hotel is a bit run down, bathroom was falling apart, and nothing nearby besides construction and homes. Had to take a taxi to town for anything, but they had a great taxi driver who would take you there for cheap! Wifi was slow, but AC worked great. For a one night stop, it's just what you pay for.

3/5 Okay

Nothing exciting, but does the job
We stayed here on our way to our dive location. It is slightly too far to just quickly walk to the center however for 5MR they will organize a small mini-bus to bring you into town and return same thing which is very handy. It is very simple accommodation and before we entered our room one of the ladies very nicely sprayed with bugspray, however as the quality of the building isn't what we europeans are used to there was definitely a big potential for bugs to come through the splits in the door or the open window in the bathroom. Overall it was fine for what it was and the price we paid, but again really only because it was our pitstop before moving to our awesome diving location.
