Brilliant escape

The quaint and comfortable cottages, the breakfast - great selection and delicious (especially the pancakes) and the staff were friendly!
Daniel C. Couples Germany, May 12, 2015
Great place

Quiet, friendly staff, nice cottage
We arrived very late at night but the security guy was informed about us and immediately arrange our check-in, was a big relieve :) The cottage is simple but very clean and nice. It's located 15' walking from the town, so it's quiet and really pleasant walk. Totally recommended.

Good Place

A little out of town, beach view close to the room, nice Garden area
Nice stay, but the bungalow nead renovation for the price. Verry helpful stuff to make Island hopping. Walking from the city is about 5 Min, no Problem at Night with some light. Breakfast could be a little bit more choice. All a realy nice stay.
Hung N. Couples Australia, April 6, 2015
Mixed reviews

Amazing views and nice garden
Room types vary from a backpacker standard with no AC and sound proofing to a 3 star standard guest room with amazing views and a bit of privacy. We did not agree with a 3 star rated due to the lack of hotel facilities and services. Good breakfast. Friendly and helpful staffs. Walking is the only form of transportation to and from town. Could be quite uncomfortable under the heat and dust.
Sarah P. Couples United Kingdom, March 25, 2015
Meets the criteria

Private room with own balcony, gorgeous views, away from the hussle & bustle of town
We only stayed two nights & arrived at about 11pm on the first night. It was a little tricky to find but locals were very helpful when we asked. Someone came out to great us straight away & took us up to our room. We booked the sea view suite which was large and had its own private balcony with hammock & gorgeous views. The bathroom was ok but no toiletries provided. Maybe because we got there late, breakfast proceedings were not explained to us. A flask & order form was left outside our door but we thought it easier to go down to breakfast. The food took 45 minutes to arrive but it was good. The next morning they brought breakfast to our room which was thoroughly enjoyed from our balcony. There was construction work going on on the building behind which woke us up early. Also, the (presumably) owner did not come across as very friendly but it didn't affect our stay. It is about a 20 minute walk into town but we preferred to be away from the hussle & bustle so it suited us fine.

Great spot

The cottages themselves and adorable and well shaded from the hot sun. The staff was also great and very sweet.
Overall great! The huts were exactly as described online. The breakfast is bomb and the best we had while traveling all over the islands. The staff was beyond friendly. The only negative is that the owner Rose was pretty rude. She is sort of grouchy and nothing like she seems over email. Funny thing was a couple we met said the exact same thing about her. Her personality kind of sucks but the rest of her staff makes up for it.
Aurelie B. Couples Canada, March 14, 2015
Dont go there!!! Good food, but bad location!

food, service
Dont let them trick you!!! The cottages and the place looks good. But the location is horrible, far from everything and you CAN NOT swim in the sea infront of the hotel and there is NO BEACH!!! Its a huge lie. No taxis or transport at the hotel, you have to walk 15 min to reach anything!!! The food is excellent, the service is good, the staff is really friendly but they charge everything, you have to pay extra for the beach towels every day in use. The sell you a snorkeling trip, but the mask is not even included!!! The owner Rose is just terrible and unfriendly, she dont care about the guest, thats exactly what she told me, when I asked her: " I have enough customers, I dont need you".

Value for money, availability, standard

Lydia S. Couples Ireland, February 12, 2015
Great cottages, lovely staff

V comfortable, staff were sweet and very helpful, nice location
Great, loved cottage no 3, only problem is lots of construction in surrounding area
Giedre S. Groups Lithuania, January 26, 2015
Standart rooms do not have aircondition

Further from the town noise and polution from the trycicles
for a sea view cottage is overprice. But all hotels are overpriced comparing to e.g. europian or americanstandarts.
