There's nothing quite like Gilligan's: a loud, proud, party-hardy flashpacker resort, where all rooms have bathrooms and most have balconies. Higher-priced rooms come with fridges and TVs. Guests get $4 dinners. The mammoth bar and adjacent lagoon pool is the place to be seen, and there's more nightly entertainment than you can poke a stick at. Pick-up central.
