If all you want is paradise by the beach, this is a great choice. It's very small, so totally relaxing, with great breakfasts, a beautiful pool, nice design, fun staff and an idyllic beach. The restaurant has a different chef in the evening, and it goes a bit posher, but does so successfully. But... it does feel like they get a steady stream of people and therefore haven't maybe thought as much about the details as they could. There's no printer to get your boarding card. They forgot a wake up call. The fridges make more noise than the local fauna. The owners are so laid back that they might as well be other guests. So, if what you want is privacy, a beautiful place, without paying the earth, this is great (and ask for one of the cabins nearer the beach). If you want someone to show you around, get you to do activities, etc, then maybe not.
