Days turn into weeks for unfussy backpackers of all ages at this picturesque miniresort. Quirks such as erratic hot water and occasional 6 am bird cacophonies are offset by a tranquil beach setting, good food, and self-catering facilities, and comraderie among guests and staff. A pretty, heart-shaped pool and comfy lounge bar—set remnants of a 2006 British reality show "Celebrity Love Island"—add a touch of class but clean, smart six-bed dorms and a free light breakfast are the main draws. There are also Garden Rooms with shared facilities as well as a camping option. Dinner menus include two to four hearty, well-priced options.
