We found this very nice hotel by passing by on the street. The staff was kean to help us with everything. Our room was small, but tidy and rather cheap considering that AC was included. The drying rack hanging from the ceiling was a little funny, because we had to duck each time we went to the bathroom. Via the reception desk we booked a scuba diving tour at a good fare, which was a short but very good diving experience. You dont have to have dived before, they guide you under water, so that you only have to flow and enjoy the dreamlike experience. The hotel is very well located in the middle of the small town of Malvan. It is close to a booking agent for train tickets, the market (monday mornings), the beach and many restaurants. Since this is a small place, the life in the streets drastically diminishes during the weekend which should be taken into account. All in all, we can strongly recommend this place.
