Dirty but good location
The place very dirty, there was hair in the shower drain when we got there and the floors were grimy. The pool was fine and the location was good.

Poor insulation walls
Rooms are good but they have paper thin walls and you can hear everything everyone says on either side of you.

It’ll Do for a Couple of Nights
The bungalow was good for a couple of nights. It was a little small for 4 people. The loft area is only good for younger people as you have to stoop to walk around. The stairs are a little scary and need a handrail. The little AC unit struggled to cool the bungalow and the loft are was too warm. There wasn’t much space to move around in the living area and kitchen. The queen bed was pretty comfortable.
