B'first Chalets

Solid backpacker option

What we say: 4 stars

From the beach, this looks more like a restaurant and bar (yes, they have beer) than a guesthouse, but running back behind the restaurant building are a string of coloured bungalows that are fairly reasonable value for the locale. The owners are inititally businesslike, but soften over time and both fan-cooled and air-con options are available. There is just about no ocean views to be had from the rooms, but you're 30 seconds from the sand and the restaurant here is very good -- we easily had the best fish barbecue of our entire trip here -- ask the guy what is good on the day. If you're on a budget, the cheap rooms in the longhouse next door at Bayu are, in our opinion, better value, but as they are side by side, take a look for yourself and decide.
