Budget beachfront

More on Lovina

If you’re on a budget and have your heart set on beachfront and a swimming pool, Mandhara Chico Bungalows have got you covered.

Travelfish says:

This simple family-run place is tucked away at the end of a laneway about 3.5 kilometres east of central Lovina.

A choice of fan-cooled or air-con basic rooms don’t offer much but are clean enough, and some have sea views from the balcony. Showers are warm, there’s free WiFi and did we mention the beach? To be honest, the beach isn’t that great and was strewn with rubbish when we visited — you probably wouldn’t want to swim here, but it’s pretty to look at (beyond the litter). The family who run the place, however, are charming and very accommodating and the swimming pool is rather nice, decorated with a small stone fountain (although there’s nowhere to sit and no shade). Unusually for this area, breakfast isn’t included in the rate, but can be taken at their small attached beachside restaurant.

Mandhara Chico Bungalows was under renovation when we visited in June 2016, which will mean an improvement in the rooms, but hopefully not too much of a price hike. For now it’s a good budget choice, you’ll not get closer to the sea in the Lovina area for a lower price tag.
