My husband and I stayed in M2 in February. The accommodations were comfortable, clean, and had a clear view of the water. We found it very quiet and relaxing. You do have to share a patio with M1, but did not find it too invasive. My only complaint (besides having to leave) was that we did not have hot water in the kitchen to properly clean dishes, and had one night without hot water in the shower. We enjoyed walking the beach without anyone around and watching the kite and wind surfers. My husband tried snorkeling, but the current was just too strong. I've heard it's not as bad during the summer months. This place is great for relaxing or for easy access to the islands best wind and kite surfing.
