These range from single bed private rooms with share bathroom to big wooden bungalows fit for a king. The best value, however, are the basic rooms where you can live extremely cheaply. The rooms are very clean, the beds have lumpy foam mattresses with spotless sheets and the shared bathrooms with hot water shower and Western toilet are a real bonus in this price range. While on the topic of bonuses, there is also a swimming pool to splash about in when the ocean just doesn’t cut it anymore. The attached restaurant is a good one and worth visiting even if you’re staying elsewhere. At the lower prices, this place can’t be beaten — at the higher prices, it’s not a bad deal.
