A great choice for both backpackers and flashpackers, Monkey Island offers over 50 different rooms with an “urban-meets-tropical” design.

The cheapest “Baboon” rooms are set towards the rear of the property, with roofs and sidewalls made entirely of thatch, contrasted by wood-walled fronts that open onto small porches with hammocks. These have fans and comfortable beds with mosquito nets, relying on some unusually slick shared cold-water bathrooms. A bit more cash gets you a small but attractive dark wood bungalow with large glass doors and private cold-water bathroom, while bigger bamboo-walled “Chimpanzee” and “Gorilla” rooms with air-con and hot water are also available. All rooms have unexpected touches like dark hardwood floors, tall windows, woven bamboo walls and colourful retro-chequer designs in the bathrooms. We dug the murals of Rasta chimps on some of the exterior surfaces. The staff is stylish and youthful, and the resort offers a plunge pool to go with the always-happening Monkey Shock restaurant. Though a bit further down the beach, the Monkey Bar pumps out beats and hosts jam sessions until around midnight, so you might look elsewhere if wanting to retire early. High season rates have fallen since our last visit. Negotiable in low season.
