Fantastic location "on the sea", with wonderful carribbean views. Room tip: The front rooms upstairs have the best views, two directions.
We liked this more "remote" and "less developped" island better than the town at the main island. The downsides are of course that you need a boat to go to the beach, and if you want to go to the main town for meals, restaurants and so on. Taxiboat ride is easily arranged, and is around 3 USD pp
The family running the hotel is nice and friendly. Really a good atmosphere, and also reasonable and tast food. However as groups sometimes stay at the hotel, it sometimes get a bit "too busy" for them, and there are waiting time/mistakes. So better to order before you feel really very, very hungry. Anyway; Don`t miss their strawberry/blueberry smoothie. Also other restaurants and the island, however we did not try them
For those who look for bars and nightlife, the main island will be a better choice, although there are some bars and party venues also here
