We stayed here for about a week in early June, and it was fantastic. After our free pickup from the port, we were brought to the hotel and given a wonderful introduction to the island, and shown to our room, complete with kitchenette, tv, air conditioning and daily cleaning, with bedding and towel changes. The staff were always extremely helpful with information, and the pool area was beautiful and well-maintained. On top of all that, they gave us a late checkout until 4pm on our last day so we could stay until our boat left.
If I had any complaints at all, it would with the wifi. There are wifi access points all over the hotel, probably about ten or more, however they are rather unreliable, and each access point seems to work for about ten minutes before you need to find a new access point, sometimes requiring you to walk around until you find one that works for another ten minutes, before that one too gives out. Also, the wifi didn't work at all in our room, a fact that seemed quite surprising to the girl at reception. Anyway, if you have a lot of work to do, it might be annoying, if not, it might not bother you at all.
Overall, I would guess this is probably the best value for your money on the island (although it appears as though rates have risen now for high season, I'd guess it's still as good as you'll find).
