We were lucky to get one of the bungalows at the front with a perfect view of the beach which is just a few steps away. You can rent snorkelling gear from reception for the day and the snorkelling there is amazing. The bungalows are simple with a private bathroom, mosquito net, fan and seating area outside were you sit...

Mokhtar's Place = conveniently located near a few places to eat & drink & the beach swimming area = about a 45 second walk down the path. The rooms are basic but the prizes are not that high as well and so u can't expect glitz & glamour. A positive REVIEW & A good place to stay during ur time...

The other popular backpackers&; beach around this side of the island, ABC is wonderful towards the end of the season somewhere around end October when some days there would be only a handful of visitors. ABC is a long beach area lined with basic and standard chalets all the way from the Southern end at ABC(air batang chalets) .

We came during low season and the monsoon rains were in full swing. Despite the shortage of bright sunny days and open businesses(the property's own kitchen and adventure services were not available) during this time, there was always a restaurant or convenience store open along Kampung ABC and the main town (Tekek) was just a 20-mins walk away. Because of...

I've read some other reviews about this place, and I thought they didnt do justice to how simple and laid back this place is supposed to feel like.
