In the shadows of some noisy neighbours, Pen's has a bunch of typical thatched bungalows with new looking mattresses and views of the beach. There's a big, cozy, restaurant up front, with the rooms perched upstairs on the hillside. The 700B price tag might seem expensive to some, but it's really a bargain for this part of White Sands as it means you're right amongst the action, but can have a quiet night too, if you want one. They've now also converted a few rooms to have air-con. It must also be mentioned that the food at pens is top notch, with the majority of the guests from the surrounding guest houses converging on Pen's for dinner. Try the curries.
