Its a rough ride on the boat to the island, and you have to walk for 15 minutes across the island to reach the hotel, but its worth it. Its in a beautiful setting among palm trees, right by the beach, and the only sound is the roar of the waves Unfortunately, in February the sea is rough for swimming and snorkeling on this side of the island
The cabanas are very simple, with plenty of windows for fresh air and a constant breeze when we were there. The problems with electric power cuts and water shortages mean that you have to be prepared to accept that you are not staying in a developed island.
The restaurant serves excellent meals, but we found the quantities large and we often shared a meal, but this was not a problem. The menus are American based and we found some meals to comprise a strange mixture of foods and flavours. The staff are brilliant, always quick to serve, very happy and friendly. They keep the rooms, restaurant and grounds immaculate.
The restaurant was open to the public and we found that a number of backpackers who were staying in the area came during the daytime. In itself, this was not an issue, but we found they spent long periods using the facilities, to the detriment of residents. This was encouraged by having access to the internet. Although guests are told not to give out the password to visitors, the staff did and
the management seemd to turn a blind eye.
