For budget travellers who don't like the size and noise of a typical all-inclusive, this place is a bit of a find. The grounds surrounding the lovely pool are gorgeous, and the nearby shaded hammocks are a total bliss-out. You're never more than a hop and skip from your room, so it's more like staying at a friend's country retreat than some sort of Club Med. No blaring music, no hyper staff. An intimate place, with friendly staff, and guests who quickly get to know one another over a week or two. If you booked it with a block of friends, you'd have an amazing time. The food is serviceable, but not great. Plan to eat a few nights out in the town, where fresh fish abounds. Our room was clean, with great air conditioning, which was all we needed. Request a ground-floor room or villa, so that you get an outdoor table.
