“Nice room with air conditioning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The was a nice room for the price is was off the beaten path. However the taxi is a dollar, so it is not a problem. If you are on a budget and want to spend more on excursions than this is the place to stay. Christine is very very helpful. She went out of her way to translate and make arrangements for our excursions, and even got us better rates than we could find ourselves. Also she guided us to the places the locals eat. They are much more reasonable and the food was very good. The room was very clean.There was a very good size shower and the room was also a good size. As an added note there are NO ATM's on this island or anyway to get cash. Many places, especially the local friendly eating places, do not take credit cards. So get your cash when you land and carry it here.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The place is nice and clean. It has a nice garden with fruit trees. The owner is very nice and helpful with her advices. The rooms also have air condition. However, we were told that the shower had warm water. For the 2 nights we stayed we took a shower with cold water. We told the owner about this problem and she did try to see what caused it but never explained us the problem and let us assume that the problem was fixed. The other problem was that we were told that the wi-fi worked in the office and the garden. It did not work at the garden at all. Their office did not have air condition and you felt like being in a sauna. So we could hardly use the wi-fi.
