Abdul's Chalets

Great beachside setting, good with kids

What we say: 4 stars

Abdul's used to be a budget hanger-on in this area, but their old fan-cooled rooms are now ancient history and it's firmly moved up into the mid-priced bracket. Of the offerings along this strip, this was our favourite -- rooms are spacious and air-con with good bathrooms, private balconies and, for the beachfront rooms, good beach frontage on a great stretch of beach. Bungalows are wooden with peaked green roofs and decent verandas with deck settings out front. They're largely glass fronted, though with curtains for privacy. The beach here is dotted with a mix of palm trees and deck chairs and there's a good little pontoon offshore for your frolicking needs. The crowd, at least when we passed through, was near uniformly European with quite a few families in the mix. Staff were a little offhand, but if you're travelling with kids and this fits your budget, you could do worse.
