My boyfriend and I stayed at the cabanas for a week in April. Everything was perfect for us, location, size, pool, bar and the reviews made the decision simple. We stayed in 2 different rooms as the rooftop cabanas was only available for half our stay. Checking in was a breeze, taxi was sent to wait for us at the air strip and it was minutes until we were sitting by the pool with a cocktail. I found the front desk ladies to be more than friendly and helpful, they booked our flights and helped us pick a snorkelling tour. Room #11 , second floor, was big, bright and nice, right at the end so there is more room to sit and have a beverage without being "in the way" when people are walking by to get to their room. It was clean, quiet and the ac worked fine, only trick to it, the smaller remote by the tv is not for the dvd player, its the way to get the room at a comfy temperature. The ac unit leaks a bit so don't leave anything you don't want wet directly underneath. There is a small fridge which is extremely convenient to fill with beers! Beers are about $1,50 at the market and $2.50 from the pool bar. There was a safe in #11, but we didn't have one in cabana#3 which I found weird.
Breakfast at the bar can go quick, so if you had a late night, don't be surprised if the fruit salad/coffee are gone. We really enjoyed this, fruits were so delicious, good coffee and pastries. The conch ceviche was one of the best we had on the island, a must try! Wish they had a few more items to snack on at the bar. I had read before that bikes were free to takeout for the day, but that must have been an older review because we now have to pay a fee for rental, still quite cheap for a full day, if I remember correctly $8. They give you a lock and key with the bikes, just in case.
Cabana#3 was simply perfect. Loved the privacy, hot tub was definitely too hot for day use but fine in evening. Although there is a rule where no kids under 10 are allowed, one family had a special pass and it was good to be able to leave the pool area where the kids ran free and spat on each other in the pool and splashed other guests electronics and retreat on our deck quietly. Not too private as people can easily see you, but still a fantastic room. We hung out in the hammock/shaded area and relaxed with the sound of the sea nearby, dreamy! The grounds are cleaned daily as is the pool. Beautiful plants and flowers surround you by the pool. Towels are given to you upon check in and they wish that you exchange them every other day or more, if possible. there is a book exchange shelf at the front desk, loads of options. I still dream of this place and will be back some time. I hope that you enjoy as much as we did.
