Due to some itinerary changes, we arrived here very early in the morning. No one expected the rooms to be ready so it was a pleasant surprise that they were. I was with a group. The room I was in was very basic but others were much nicer. The bathroom was small and difficult to move around in and the air conditioner didn't cool very well. Once I explored the island and saw how primitive it is, I decided that even the basic rooms were quite nice.
Marita is a wonderful hostess. She and the staff made us feel very comfortable. We had a nice breakfast each morning and there were always fresh snacks on the counter in the afternoon.
This hotel is within walking distance to the village (restaurants and shops), the pier (snorkeling and swimming), the beach and the bars. If you go out the back on to the beach, there is a small cove and at certain times we were able to get in the water as the marine iguanas swam across from one group of rocks to another.
Keep an eye out for another hidden treat. There are bananas hanging in the courtyard. This is Marita's equivalent to a fruit bowl for guests. Adds to the charm!
