A group of us rented a townhome and single room for the week, over New Years. The staff were great, the pool was beautiful, and the rooms were really nice. It's a short walk down the beach to restaurants and bars. Jonas helped us coordinate some motorbikes to explore the island, and we had a blast.
A few things: if you rent a townhome or condo, they only clean once every few days, so you have to be pretty tidy. Also, there's not a lot of seating around the pool so you'll have to get there early.
