My husband and I stayed here and got a last minute price and was very pleased. Room was on 3rd floor and view was to town which we loved very much. Sun was very hot on water side. Staff are absolutely lovely. Carnival was going on for 3 days of our stay. Very cute. Flying pirates quad rentals are a most. Island was very fun to ride around and see. Starfish beach is a must spend the better part of a day. Take water taxi to Bastimentos really cute and a fun little restaurant for beers and burgers. Take the water taxi's to Isla carenaro too and have lunch at pickled parrot and at lulus also.This area will not be a secret hang out long. It has so much to do and you will not be disappointed with this hotel. Carolyn does the best job along with her staff. This is to me the best place to stay. A tip do not get drunk and eat burger off stand at 2:00 am no matter how hungry or good they smell. I was ill for days and had to antibiotic. Remember this was still our best in the 6 week vacation in central amercia.
