i recently stayed in the Colinda Cabanas, and had a great stay. Due to availablity, I split my stay between a small, ocean-view cabana for the first few days, and a beachfront suite for the last few days.
The Cabanas are in a great location on the airport side of the island, which is quiet, and doesn't get much random foot traffic through it, so it is very safe. A bicycle is provided for riding around the island, which is all you really need to see the whole island. Golf cart taxis are also available, but the center of town is only a short walk away.
I stayed in a back cabana for the first part of the stay, which was about 300 sq ft, with a double and a twin bed, bathroom with shower and compact refrigerator. There was an inside table and chair, and on the porch, an outside table and hanging hammock.(very comfortable !)
The beachfront suite was about 700 sq ft, with marble floors, full kitchen with full size refrigerator, full bath, separate bedroom with a queen bed, air-conditioning and cable tv. There was a dining table with chairs, and in the front area, a double sized futon and table with a chair.
Colin and Linda are very nice, and gave great recommendations for activities and restaurants. They are very gracious hosts, and very helpful and friendly. Rooms have daily cleaning service.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Cabanas, and can highly recommend them for both those traveling on a budget or those looking for nicer accommodations.
