Very good location just 5 minutes from beach or the National Park. It has a nice patio restaurant with good food, and some lush gardens. But it is way expensive for what it offers. Family-owned (with extended members "monopolizing" the area), the staff seemed uninterested, even unhelpful. Rooms have an odd layout: surrounded by verandas providing limited privacy, and a bathroom added to the inner corner of the room.
Despite pricey, you may feel nickle-and-dimed at every corner (e.g., no shampoo, extra towels charged) - much under the disguise of an "environmental" orientation. If you don't mind paying more this might be a good option, but you can get similar options at a better price nearby.
