Assuming you're the hearty tent camping type person, there is no reason you wouldn't love this place. The beach is freaking gorgeous, and for $20 a night you get to call it your home. The campsites are in from the sand under a shady area with trees and bushes and whatnot to protect you from the wind and shade you from the sun. The campground is quite large, stretching along the beach, and they reserve the last zone furthest from the camp entrance for quiet people, so I cant imagine it being full enough to be noisy all the way out there, but I suppose its possible if it got really busy. During my stay it was clean, quiet and seemed very safe. I never worried about my stuff getting messed with. There's plenty of services at the camp entrance, but about 6 or 7 in the evening they all shut down, so after that point you are on your own for food or beer or whatever. Town is about a 20 min walk (some steep hills and the road can be dark at night) or 3$ cab ride away, though.
My only gripe would be that the showers are not private, and could be easily made so with a plastic tarp or plywood or something, but as it is they are all open air and face the main path through the campground, so I showered with my swim trunks on. Could be more of an issue for the ladies. Otherwise the facilities are as good as you could ask for from a campground. Flush toilets, many picnic tables, bbq pits, etc. Basically you're spending 20$ a night to enjoy a beautiful Carribean island where the hotels start at 100$ a night, so what's not to like?
