We stayed here for three nights, and had a lovely time. We’d been travelling a bit, and wanted a place a bit more secluded to catch our breath and wind down, and for that it was perfect. We received a warm welcome and a room with a gorgeous ocean view. The hotel has a nice pool, and a good beach. (We managed fine without bathing shoes or sandals, but there are a few stones etc., so you might want to bring some.) Rooms were clean and nice, we especially loved our hammock on our own terrace. The free WiFi also worked perfectly.
The hotel is a bit off from the main areas of activity on the island. If you want to do more than kick back and relax I recommend renting a golf cart. It’s fairly inexpensive, and Eric will arrange it for you, so you can have it delivered at the hotel and return it there. (Though the few times we wanted a taxi we had no issue just walking up to the road and within a few minutes catching one driving by.)
The restaurant is also good. But do note that it is run separately, and (at least when we visited in the off season) closed rather early. So you may want to do some shopping for extra drinks etc.
