nly 2 islands are inhabited, West Island and Home Island. The tourist Island is West Island, which has the runway, administration and tourist accommodation facilities. Home Island is the home of most of the resident Malay population, and is serviced regularly by a ferry from West Island.
The Cocos Solutions page describes some of the accommodation options. It appears that the Cocos Cottages (pic) provide the best accommodation, however it is rumoured that they are hard to book. They are self contained cottages, and you do your own cooking etc. A description from the Cocos Island Tourism Commission can be found here.
We stayed at the West Island Lodge now called the Cocos Beach Motel, which consists of a series of blocks of rooms The rooms are serviced daily. The lodge also contains a restaurant and meals are served from the servery. The meals are generally buffet style, or you can ask for particular dishes to be made. The restaurant is open for breakfast lunch and dinner, and will also provide meat and salads if you want to go some where on the Island and use one of the frequent barbecues (pic)(pic).
I would suggest that the lodge is a good place to stay. The rooms are ok and the living is easy. This link shows some shots of the Lodge. A description from the Cocos Island Tourism Commission can be found here.
