Unique & Beautiful Location But It Has Its Cons
We stayed in a bungalow (T2) on the stilts right on the edge of the ocean. The staff were pleasant and welcoming. The common services and restaurant were great. If you are prepared for a roughing it/camping experience with plenty of bugs this is the place for you. (I would prefer to actually stay in a tent on the beach next time.) Pros: Absolutely unique and beautiful location, waking with the sunrise and the sound of ocean waves with a balcony overlooking the ocean. Cons: -Public pathways under the bungalows. Was awoken almost every night multiple times between 12:00 AM and 4:00 AM with drunk people deciding to hike back to their resort or beach with music playing and in some cases sit right under our bungalow talking loudly and smoking. This island seems to be for backpacking and partying and not having any regard for other people on the island. -Mosquito net + liberal amounts of mosquito/bug spray did not prevent bug bites from occurring all night and every night. (Not sure what type of bites these were as they were not your standard mosquito bites that leave an itchy bump but rather clusters of hard red welts on various parts of the body when waking up.) -When we asked for a cabin clean (you have to ask), they made the bed, rinsed the bathroom down, but did not change the towels or linens. We just rolled with it rather then complain or try to rectify it. -Loud Music, not sure, but 2 of our nights the base from somewhere was a constant background to trying to sleep.
