Jacqueline (owner) is very friendly and very dedicated to making your trip the best.
Sonrisa is more a pousada than a hotel in my mind, which is a big plus: you get a much more personalized service by an owner who enjoys her job; you feel a lot of taste and care is put in the design and maintenance of the place which is really clean.
The building, garden, patio are very nice. Check their website, their prices are quite lower that the 200$ currently quoted on Trip Advisor. I felt that it was a good value.
We stayed in a poolside hotel room on the ground floor. It was a standard size for a hotel room. We enjoyed the view on the pool which guests used very little. So we could enjoy it fully! Other reviews mention that the area is rather commercial / in development. On the ground floor, you are definitely isolated from the exterior thanks to the design of the place. Morning & evenings are very quiet. I can't say during the day as we were out enjoying the island but it did not seem to be noisy.
Jacqueline should pitch her breakfast a bit better than a "sandwich and a cafe" as it was really good.
It's definitely a great place for families and windsurfers. I will definitely recommend it to my friends.
