We stayed in a 2 queen bed, top floor. Very large walk in closet. No tv. We walked barefoot past pool to beach each day. A mama sloth was on the grounds with baby, but they sleep 20 hours/day in the trees, coming down 1x/week...so don't expect a close encounter. Monkeys are in the area, but we only saw them at MA National Park...very close encounters. (Even the other hotel that advertises "more monkeys than people" did not have any around on the evening we visited).
Rooms were clean and decent. Not the most updated and luxury, but fine for our 3 nights. Kitchenette useful- microwave, small fridge, sink and dishes. The area has very steep mountain roads along shoreline (think San Francisco, USA steep). We left car at hotel and walked to MA.
Hotel Staff very helpful, arranged Park tour guide and allowed us to borrow boogie boards. On the beach, we rented a longboard to surf $10/hr. Parasailing and water activities available. Shops of souvenirs, restaurants and small grocery store in walking distance.
