I was very excited for my stay at De Real Macaw - the owner was very easy to work with as I was setting up my trip and was very friendly all throughout my stay. The room I was staying in, the "Courtyard View Cabana" was extremely small. To make everything fit the toilet is literally inches from the bed, and right next to the toilet is the shower, with the only barriers between them being shower curtains. I did not go in the other rooms, but I suspect they are much nicer.
The hotel is in a loud and busy location. One night the restaurant across the street blasted music until 10pm. The restaurant next to the hotel (a different one) is very popular and hopping until about 10 or 11 at night. When you leave the hotel to go explore/enjoy the island you will almost assuredly be accosted by people urging you to view their art and buy their products.
If you're looking for a calm, quiet hotel, this is not the one for you. If you're looking for a hotel in the heart of the action and you like (or at least don't mind) the commotion, then you'll love De Real Macaw.
The owner is a great guy and helpful.
