We had an awesome stay here at Charlie's! I came here with my friends who are first timers in Elyu, and this place made their experience more memorable. The room is perfect! It has well planned beds, cabinets and strong air-conditioning. The shared bathroom is clean and spacious with enough showers, bidet and urinal sections. The reception crew is very reliable and friendly, and the beach front is amazing!
