YoHo is pretty far from the town of Kenting. It’s a decent place to stay as long as there are no annoying school trips happening there during your stay…I spent Thanksgiving weekend listening to screams, shouting, slamming doors, kicking walls, stomping, and the general cacophony you’d expect when 300 or so Taiwanese adolescents swarm a hotel with only a small handful of chaperones. I suspose that place is pretty popular for that since there is nothing around for them to get into aside from the resort facilities. Their breakfast buffet (overlooking the beach and early enough, the sunrise as well…) is pretty good. It’s the restaurant that is near the hot tubs. I took a really nice picture of a sunset from their beach there.
However, when I go to Kenting, I prefer staying in one of the little cheap hotels along the main strip. I have yet to pay more than $700/night. And Warung Didi’s is not to be missed. You have to try their cheesecake. I’m a little worried, though, because the people there know me…I have a usual table whenever I go and I don’t even live there!
