It looked rather new when we visited in mid-2017 and another rainy season’s growth will render the garden lusher while another high season’s business will give the restaurant and communal areas a more lived-in feel but the New Papa Pippo Resort already shows great promise.

It’s basically a rather mundane square plot of land featuring neither river nor lake views but the central swimming pool and garden have been well-laid out with a wide tiled section around the large pool providing an abundance of lounger space.

Comfortable single storey cottages have been placed around the garden’s edge and there’s a pleasant cafe and reception area by the main gate. A single-storey block with adjacent rooms but separate wooden balconies completes the layout.

Will keep the kids busy.

Chalets come with balconies looking onto the pool and garden and interiors are simple but clean and of a good size. Slightly smaller rooms with thatched roofs are also available at lower rates. There is a lack of decor or colour to break up the white walls and tiled floors yet the overall impression is airy and bright and all options are well-appointed with air-con, ensuite hot water bathrooms, fridge, safe and kettle. Not bad for an average low season tag of $20. High season hikes are very restrained as well.

Otres 2 beach is only a short walk away and New Papa Pippo Resort is an all-round solid flashpacker recommendation for any period of the year.
