We have a soft spot for guesthouses with names that sound like Flintstones characters, but the Zam Zam fully deserves a positive review based on the accommodation and service alone.
It has only a handful of simple but spacious and immaculate rooms in a two-floor concrete building just off the main road and a three-minute walk to the beach. With powder-blue walls, shiny tile floors, screened windows and great private balconies, the rooms more than make up for their lack of style with comfort and functionality. Each comes with wall-mounted fan, soft queen-size bed, TV, fridge, wardrobe, small table and hot-water bathroom with modern appliances. The owners are very friendly and can help with renting a scooter or booking onward transport, and several quality restaurants are found nearby. Expect rates to go up slightly during peak season.
