Very nice stuff, good breakfast (scrambled eggs, fruits, pancakes), nice to hang out at the bar in the evening to get to know other people. Rooms are big, with aircon and hammock where you can chill if you want some quiet time.

Hello Sofia, It's a shame to have to follow the hotel policy and booking.com policy but if not people like you would make all business even a harder work. Be ashamed of brazil " as you are a brazilian also " for how you treat and for how do you try to threaten people thinking you are a "DIGITAL NOMAD" with any a power to just cancel and get your money back. Ashamed on you virtual girl. As you know and realized i wasn't on the island at the moment of your check in and later when i have arrived i was at the bar waiting anxiously to finally meet you but it didn't happen unfortunately. I has ready to give your money back, really, because i don't accept in any circumstance a guest threatening on me or on my staff. I really would have loved to personally do your check out instantly and wish you all the best. You've arrived at the right moment of the full island power cut and all got delayed and i really apologize the 45 minutes "OMG" delayed for your check in time ( we would love to offer a 45 minutes free stay DEAL). What your digital world could confirm to you is that was a full island power cut " or to you really think people just cut their electricity to have a full guest satisfaction ???" and i am so glad that you had an COLD ICE CREAM to calm down. If you work with internet, on this situation just relax or try to find a coffee shop with internet as you did a local community research on the electrician conditions of the island and had time for an ice cream and another idea is to have a local sim-card and them you can use the technology on your behalf and use the mobile hotspot. Your choice was a room with open roof toilet and pachamama apologize for the " FOUR"flying cockroaches in your room, TWO spiders and obviously the mosquitoes also it's probably our fault. As your master degree in digital nomad research before book any hotel just check if they provide hot/WARM water, mosquitos, 45 minutes check out delay and power-cuts .... Keep working hard on your virtual life and making real live people life harder. Congrats Best of lucky Management
