Liked: nice pool area, seating outside kitchen, good kitchen etcnice staff, close to town

Disliked: Very costly for single room, $60 with not even a towel provided, let alone fridge, TV, fan or aircon. Communal bathroom/toilet facilities. This is pretty pricey for a basic single bed in a basic room.
