Bring your towels, bare minimum
We stayed there for 2 nights. We were able to do the check in later which was great. The main doors do not close and stay open all day and night long. NO TOWELS, YOU HAVE TO PAY. The room was relatively small but ok... the arr on the wall was questionable. The showers were dirty, hair on the drain from 10 years ago. The kitchen was dirty, no soap, half appliances, but it was big. The living room was nice, more questionable decoration in there. No radiators in the room, no place to dry your staff, limited appliances. Felt alward withe the bathroom/ shower situation... You can not adjust the temp of water in the cubicles, some locks in the showers dont work, cant leave your staff there.

Beautiful, just don’t forget a towel
We stayed in one of the cabins. The location is beautiful, peaceful and perfect to explore around diamond beach. It was difficult to catch the staff because of their hours of operation not matching with our schedule, but they left the keys and info for us at the lobby. Our main complaint was that there were no towels and the shared showers were pretty dirty. Overall though, I would still recommend it. If you go, just make sure to pack some towels and some flip flops for the shower.
