Wonderful Stay
Hotel is a family run hotel with huge rooms and a fantastic bathroom. It is only a few months old and everything was super clean. We really enjoyed the rain head shower as well as the king bed. The hotel is a short 300 rupee ride into the main town so you are out of the noisy downtown area. The owner is so kind and assisted us with a ride as well as providing an umbrella. Highly recommend this place. Thank you for taking such good care of us! Scott and Mary Lou

Fantastic guest house!
We had a fantastic stay at Sam’s guest house. The family who owns the house were brilliant hosts. They checked with us in the mornings if we needed anything, offered advice about the area & helped arrange transportation. The wifi is very quick, the room is spacious & the beach is a stones throw away. It is in the main road, so it can be a little noisey during the day but that wasn’t an issue at night. Highly recommend!

Excellent little property with amazing family
Beautiful family, very attentive to all requests and super friendly. We decided to extend our stay for two extra nights here due to location to lovely beach and the area. We felt very secure and comfortable. We had laundry done here at a very reasonable price. The breakfast was amazing for the little price paid, especially the fresh bread. Nice cold water (bottles) available for purchase at a excellent price. Shared refrigerator outside the rooms was nice to keep fruit, snacks and waters cold. Wish we had more time to stay here.
