Melina and her staff are extremely welcoming. Her placed is a 30 second walk to the beach and tucked away so it's much quieter. Great for those who are looking to unwind and relax. Very cozy, ample space, we loved the traditional hut style. Melinda looked after our valuables so we never felt unsafe and could head to the beach without worrying about carrying items around with us. Because her accommodations are in the middle of greenery, it's a good idea to pack bug repellent. Great stay!!


Lovely to stay in a bamboo cabin. I adored the necklace they give you with your key on! Melinda's garden is tucked away so you can't hear any of the music from the bars/hotels which is great. The free wifi reaches all the cabins and the hammocks are a great bonus. The double bed was HUGE and comfortable and the mosquito net was a godsend. We didn't have any hot water in our cabin but our neighbours next door did. Occasional cockroaches in the bathroom but not a problem.


Me and my daughter had a nice stay at Merlinda's garden. The cottages, with a big balcony, were perfect for our needs. They r located only 150 m from the beach at station 3. The woman who runs the place was very friendly and helpfull.
