Mushroom Point has an eclectic collection of offerings including a pleasant beachside bar and restaurant, several rundown mushroom shaped beach huts, much nicer and seriously quirky chalets across the road along with dorms, a second cafe and an upstairs chill-out area.

The quirky chalets are set across the road, arranged randomly around a very cute garden. The tiny round bungalows with conical straw roofs struck us as being just perfect if a coach load of hobbits arrived for a beach break in Otres. (Perhaps the manager would care to grow a long white beard?) Paths weave across the sand between outcrops of vegetation and even the communal toilets and bathrooms were again, cute. Decorative, oversized mushrooms sprout randomly here and there around the garden—mostly gold tops and psilocybin to our untrained eye—and it’d be a shoe-in for any mushroom themed attraction at Disneyland with or without the hobbits.

Interiors are compact.

Some larger chalets are available with ensuite bathrooms though the standard ones wouldn’t even have space for an ensuite wash basin. There’s a bed—round ones to fit the rooms—mosquito nets and a safe with a small stool functioning as bedside table. Each does come with a small balcony and chairs though and the resort has several agreeable seating and relaxing areas anyway. Floors around the centrally placed bamboo bed bases are terracotta tiles and interior walls are varnished wicker. All very clean and shipshape. They also offer dorms on the across the road site which were spacious, clean and come with large, two person mattresses for a change.

The beach cafe has plenty of cane chairs on the sand and a covered bar area for intemperate days while there’s a small cafe and reception area in front of the mushroom garden. Up a winding staircase is a reading, movie-watching and chill-out area. Their kitchen used to have a very good reputation though new management will need to settle in before we see how it pans out.

Relax by the sea.

The dorms are good and the quirky chalets interesting and inexpensive and there’s a good vibe to the place so, for now, it stays on our recommended list.
