Mona Lisa looks cute as you walk by on the beachfront, too bad the shacks are in terrible shape.

Photo of Mona Lisa
It’s comprised of a long row of Thai-style wooden and tile-roofed huts basking in the shade of a coconut grove. It sounds greats and looks great from a distance, but the cute coloured huts are really in terrible shape. The bathroom of the hut we were shown was simply vile -- absolutely filthy. Some huts feel like they’d barely last another windy season. Beds are simple foam jobs, with tatty mosquito nets and not much else to report on. They do have small balconies, where we imagine you could string a hammock up -- assuming you could find something strong enough to hold your weight. If you don’t mind the double-dose of grunge, Mona Lisa is both absolute beachfront and has the cheapest rooms we saw for two people. So it is true: You get what you pay for.
