As far as small Caribbean hotels go; there are much worst out there.
The good: excellent staff especially our maid service both my wife and I encountered her on separate occasions and she asked if we needed anything and if there were any special services that would make our stay better. Always friendly through out my stay. Front desk, bar and towels were also very friendly. Beach is beautiful. Water was not as clear and sandy bottomed as I would like. But it is peaceful with only a handful of guests. Surrounded by one other medium sized hotel and private beach front homes; the volume of people at the beach is minimal. Bar drinks were good but on the weak side for my Taste. Piña Colada was great. Mojitos we good. The food was good as well with the highlight being the pizza and the Mofongo. The pool bar had seats poolside which I thought it was heat until some kids started dropping their food in the pool. The rooms were averaged size with flat screen nice decor and a comfy but albeit moist bedding. My family always felt safe here.
The Bad: the rooms were constantly humid. No matter what we did. AC; no AC. Open the sliding doors; closed them. Due to this, the floor was constantly moist along with the bedding and furnishing. The lampshades were stained due to rust from the wire frame. Not only mine but three of the other rooms my family rented were overly humid as well. We all had to sleep with towels at our bedside to wipe off the moist sandy crud that formed on the floor. Besides that the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The pool was falling apart with tile and concrete missing along the edge. But honestly, this did not take away from the usage of the pool. In weekend they had live entertainment (night and day; but only until 10 pm).
Recommendations: if you stay here there is a restaurant across the street call Rincon tropical. Mofongo and seafood. Also I ate breakfast at the bakery a mile or two from the hotel (turn right as you leave the hotel.) Cheaper and you get some local color.
I would give it four stars if they would fix the stained lampshades and the humidity problem that causes it!!
