Set way down towards the southern end of the beach, and slightly set back from the road, Sun Beach Guesthouse is a good hideaway from the rest of town for those looking for creature comforts without staying in a big hotel.
Unexpectedly empty given its location, spick-and-span appearance and great value prices, it looks slightly like something from a Spanish resort -- in a charming way. Staff are friendly, and the pool, while not huge, is inviting. Rooms come with a fridge and a large balcony affording great sea views -- and while they all come with air-con, the place is very airy and catches enough of a breeze that you probably won't need to turn it on. WiFi is available as is motorbike hire.
