The beach being so close to my room. No tv, the fan only circulating the hot air in the room and not cooling the room down

  • Liked: Cleanliness

Fine for a couple of nights.

This is nicely situated on the lagoon- but there are really no facilities other than a room and a bathroom. Fine for an overnight stay or two- and they organised an airport pick up at the ungodly hour the flight arrived.
