We stayed in cabin # 5. It is the furthest one out on the water so you only have one neighbor. The inside of the cabin was tastefully decorated which made the place homey but not cluttered. It was light and airy with a modern flair. There are windows letting light in every direction lending to a bright yet cozy during the day. The air conditioning and ceiling fan worked really well too keep us cool. Beach towels were provided for use - just don't lose them! The bathroom was small but clean with a corner shower with hot water and a glass pedestal sink. The deck had two lounge chairs and the water just outside is clear enough to watch various fish. One evening we saw a sting ray swim by! And one very early (6am) morning, looking out on the dock in the distance we saw dolphins jumping in the water. We only had one breakfast at the restaurant but it was good and the woman attending us was incredibly warm. We ordered drinks and she brought them to our room so we could enjoy them while sitting out on the deck.
The only con is - yeah it's noisy from the water taxis. I can't fault the hotel for that. I did read the reviews before I decided to book the place so was prepared for this. If your ill prepared it can certainly be a negative surprise. Definitely bring earplugs if you go to bed early. Maybe it was louder since #5 was further out on the water? I don't know, but I appreciated just having one neighbor so I would stay in that cabin again. Adriano was helpful setting up a tour for us to Isla Zapatillas. He speaks fluent German for those that find that helpful.
Tip - bring a flashlight with you if you venture out in the evening or night. There are crabs all over the place on the island generally.
