We did not stay in the hotel but went on half day snorkeling trip with them. It was the highlight of our holiday, went with just 5 other people on speedboat, seen 3 reefs, had lunch on sand bank and swam with dolphins! For 35$ is a must!

This guesthouse was excellent. It is one of only two hotels on the bikini beach which means you can walk straight from your room to the beach in your bikini without having to cover up. They give you beach chairs and beach towels too, as well as organizing all kinds of day trips for the guests. The room was clean... More

Didnt stay at the hotel but went for their Snorkeling trip and it was excellent. Professional divers accompany you into the sea and we had a great time on the speedboat sharing jokes! Prices are also very competitive so you do get a good deal.
