If the title hasn't sold you on this place, let me continue. I wasn't sure where to stay on the island and originally only booked for 2 nights. After checking out the whole island on a dirt bike, not kidding a figure 8 around the two volcanos (I don't recommend this :), I realized I had chosen the best place and stayed my whole time here.
You are within walking distance of the main town of Moyogalpa but far enough outside that sleeping is quiet and comfortable. There is great internet access, it is really clean, beautiful garden and hammock area, and there are several choices for rooms depending on your budget but it is not crowded. There is a kitchen to use and the private rooms come with a good breakfast.
There are other places to stay but you are either in town more and it's loud or you are way far out in no man's land. I even checked out playa Santo Domingo and it so small and out there, I wouldn't want to stay there. You can easily access everything by moped or dirt bike. Both can be arranged by the awesome manager Javier, who was indispensable for information and entertainment!
If you are coming to the Island I recommend staying here and seeing for yourself.
