6/10 Good

Stuff is very friendly and they have activities to do inside the resort. But room was too small and felt uncleaned although its just a condition of an old construction.

2/10 Poor

You will regret staying here. We checked out early
When checking in no one helped us with our bags. The lady working there didn’t seem to know anything or interested in helping. The room was really tiny, dirty, poorly lit, and mosquitos infested. No hot water. Tepid water pressure. The grounds are not maintained. So keep you expectations low and you will get through it. None of the guests seems happy. I noticed no one smiled. I checked out early and forfeited the money. The location is terrible also.

6/10 Good

Sharks Tail was on par with expectations with the affordable pricing. The room was clean and bare bones. I did not swim in the pool nor eat on-premise so can't speak to those amenities. My one complaint is the crazy amount of noise. There was the local disco happening nearby from midday until late-night so there was thumping music and karaoke. There were also several roosters nearby and a cat fight in the morning, so I'd recommend packing earplugs as the walls are woven and don't provide much of a sound barrier. It was close to the market and near the ferry port, so good location.

Basic but great staff
The staff were fantastic but the room was very basic which is to be expected for the price. Bed was really hard and lots of noise from the local sports pitch. I booked a transfer from the airport but no one picked me up. I waited an hour and kept emailing the hostel to no avail. Had to make my own way in the end but missed the last boat thanks to waiting around.

Good place
the room was surprisingly big. I'm not sure if we got upgraded or what because we booked only 1 double bed but ended up staying in a 2 double bed room. the room was so clean, especially the CR so I'm very satisfied. the towel was a bit rough! hehe Staff were friendly. Just that on our first day, it took the staff 24 hrs to keep the used plates we left at our porch. that said, i dont think they clean the room everyday as our bin got full until we reach the end of our stay. That's fine. it wasn't a 5-star hotel. Aircon was pretty strong! very good if you like to keep your room cold The only thing i wish to be really improved... they didn't offer toiletries. Just body wash. no toothpaste, no shampoo. The booking said there'd be toiletries. The hotel is a bit of a walk from bounty beach, and from the ticketing area. But that's fine. Note, not a beachfront hotel Pool wasn't worth it.
