If you enjoy snorkeling, then I recommend staying here. There's a small area to lay in the sun but there is no sandy beach, only fossilized coral. From your porch, it's a short walk to the stairs down to a short pier, where you can snorkel and see the reef without having to drive and without a lot of tourists. The accommodations are rustic, so if your standards are the Marriott or Hilton, this probably won't be what you're looking for. The cabins have clean sheets, A/C and bathrooms. There's no TV or wi-fi within the rooms, which is great for disconnecting from society and enjoy the view. Occasionally, it was hard to get warm water in the shower, which we soon learned, is pretty much an issue in most of central America. Besides, super hot showers are overrated when your skin has been baked by the sun. The staff was super friendly and helped arrange tours and fishing trips. The resort also has a full service kitchen, which was pretty good food. And, it's within walking distance to town to sample other cuisine and do some shopping. On cruise boat days, there sometimes are tour groups that swing into the resort. It's only for a few hours and it never interrupted our day or our swimming. Overall, thumbs up for location, price and friendliness of the staff.
