What we say: 3.5 stars

Hidden away in the trees at the western end of the beach, Australian/German-run Cloud 9 is still one of the better value spots on Serendipity, although not as much as it once was. Their time at the top of the charts has taken its toll, with prices going up while friendliness has gone down. Despite the attitude at the front desk though, it's still good value and the wooden and thatch bungalows show an attention to detail you rarely see in backpacker-targeted accommodation, such as checkerboard-tiled bathrooms and colourful hammocks. The bungalows — some with amazing ocean views — are well maintained and the bathrooms spotless, but the rooms billed as twins contain one full size double bed and a not-quite-a-twin that is little more than a sturdy cot without bedding. The downstairs area has a pleasant restaurant and bar area plus private sun-loungers. Those travelling with laptops can enjoy the free WiFi. The beachfront is rocky, but it is just a short walk to a decent stretch of sand and this location is able to offer some peace and quiet amid the gorgeous views — something lost elsewhere on Serendipity. If you're visiting over a weekend get there early to be in with a chance of a room, as Cloud 9 does not always take reservations, although some report being able to make them via email.
