    Jollyboys has a great, relaxed atmosphere with a pool, chill reading area, internet cafe, bar, self-serve kitchen as well as small restaurant. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The entire establishment is clean, there are great showers, quite is enforced after 10:30pm and the beds are comfortable with 2 pillows (oh how girls love their pillows!)
