Our room was terrible, broken window with wood over it, broken door lock, mold and asbestos warning labels. This is a cheap back pack hotel and not a resort-look elsewhere in town.

Give it a miss
This is not a motel or resort. It’s a broken down backpackers. Window coverings do not cover windows even nearly. Dirty bathroom. Door lock barely hanging on so left valuables in the car which is parked in their camping ground area. All in all the worst place I’ve stayed in 40 years including Asia.

Overall it was a very lovely stay, the 6 mixt dorm room were big with airconditioning. Nice little resort, it's fairly big with campers area, tents and dorms. The biggest down point is the staff. They work badly and they are disappointingly rude. The way they clean the dorm is very incongruous as they over water the tiles which is not only hazardous but definitely unsanitary as puddles of water stay for hours on end before to dry. I put a sheet around the bottom bunk to get myself cozy, which wasn't disturbing anyone and the cleaning staff literally ripped it off and remove any form of configuration. First time a backpack does that, still wondering why. The kitchen is way too small for the number of people and the appliances are overly worn, particularly the pans which are in beyond bad condition. I would recommend to bring your cooking gears. If you don't take in consideration the very rude staff, it's a great place to say!

X Base Resort is primarily a cheap backpackers resort catering to young travellers who share rooms to keep costs down. Regular adult travellers or families booking rooms alone are not financially better off and the resort is highly geared for the teenage backpacker with an abundance of nightly noise.
