10/10 Exceptional

Rip Tide, the perfect place to stay in paradise.
Rip Tide was an awesome place to stay and the owner and staff really took care of us. We had an amazing, filling breakfast every morning and what was served would vary, which was nice to not be eating the same thing every morning. They also provided really good coffee throughout the day and were always willing to help us and recommend activities. They also provided free use of a kayak and paddle board which was quite nice and kept the activities cheap. The staff at a Rip Tide definitely will go out of their way to ensure you have a perfect stay with everything you need. I would definitely recommend staying here. I cannot wait to go back! *pictures attached are the view from the hotel!

Amazing Experience
Hi, i was here with my girlfriend and it was absolutly amazing. Local people are very peaceful and do everything what they see in your eyes. You can relax on local beach, you can travel around, you can see how local people live their lifes and what they usualy do - for example you can go fishing tunas with them, snorkeling with them has awesome atmosphere because they know best places for it. Ibu (owner of hotel) is really good man and you can discused with him everything what you want know about local traditionals, culture etc etc. I really recomanded this guest house for everyone who want see more then beach and ocean from deck chair:)
