Things didn't get off to a great start when they didn't have a room for us despite an email from them confirming that we did - however they quickly organised a room next door in Miss Mary's for us for one night and we came back the next day. We had one night in a very average standard room (not a patch on Miss Mary's and was the same price) but then moved to a suite for our last four nights which was lovely. It had a sea view, large terrace, enormous bed and was surprisingly quiet. It also had a fridge - ideally they would fill it with a few bottles of water at least as in other hotels - instead you have to buy it elsewhere and carry it back.
At the time of our stay, they didn't do PayPal and the credit machine had been down for a while so we had to make a couple of trips to the north of the island to get enough cash out - they are frequently out of order so suggest you bring cash with you from the mainland (it's a really safe island so having a lot of cash with you shouldn't prove a problem).
The beach is wonderful and there are some lovely cafes for lunch - particularly il niño.
We got the impression that the wifi was turned off when the manager left in the evening and it was often very patchy but wifi is rare on the island anyway.
