Rambutan Hotel (formerly Golden Banana Hotel) used to be three adjacent hotels, however the Hotel and the Resort are no longer affiliated with the Guesthouse, which was the first to be built but is now under different ownership.
The hotel was built second, is a fine choice and is especially popular with families. It was completely re-furbished this year, and some of the split-level rooms are now single-floor. The bedrooms are immaculate and the balcony area for each one particularly bright and airy as they look out onto the pool and a resplendent bougainvillea. The decor is charming, though can be a little tired in the downstairs living area, and the tiling especially is exquisite. All the accommodation is centred round a deep and very enticing swimming pool — there are a few loungers, though they’re a bit of a tight squeeze and you'll wrestle for them in high season. Facilities include cable TV and DVD players, WiFi throughout and a small restaurant. If within your budget, this is excellent value. Recommended — reservations are essential in high season.
