Photo of Smile House
The rooms are spacious and bright with a king-sized bed, TV, minibar, free WiFi and some very cool lamps. All rooms have both air-con and a ceiling fan, and paying for a fan room means they’ll keep the remote that controls the air-con. The bathrooms are spotlessly clean with hot water showers and sliding glass doors open on to a big balcony with two wooden chairs. Smile House is popular with divers renting month to month so it’s not a bad idea to call in advance. Sometimes, a little old lady is manning the desk — really old. So do her a favour and call in advance to schedule a showing with someone who is more mobile. It will break your heart to see her go up and down the stairs. High-season rates include breakfast and rooms are made up each day.
