Liked: Friendly owner, quiet location, only 5 mins from the beach, close to shops, good kitchen and ok shared area with books to read, good fridge in room, good desk and chair, no ants or mosquitos in room, good directions emailed to us before arrival.

Disliked: Room was not very clean, lots of hairballs from previous guests, bed a bit short, locked gate has to be negotiated on arrival so not very welcoming, "security" cupboard could be opened with a strong pull, aircon only just cool enough during the day, not clear how to contact owner initially.

Liked: It's near the main road and close to the beach. The owner sent the driving directions in advance right after the booking. The atmosphere is relaxed, as it is a small guesthouse with owners living in one of the rooms. It was a good choice for a one-night stay. There is Wi-Fi, cooking facilities with instructions how NOT to use them and some tourist information on the transfers, trains and sightseeings.

Disliked: Obviously, having hot water and air-conditioning would be nice, but you get exactly what is advertised. The room we stayed at had on small garden view window, so it's not for claustrophobic ones.
