We booked through Booking.com and unfortunately when we arrived, they didn't have vacancy for the type of room we booked. We paid extra for a room with AC and there was only a room with a fan available.
I would highly recommend contacting the hotel directly to make sure your booking is confirmed and to arrange a pick up from the harbour. The map on Booking.com was way off, so we ended up walking around for a long time in the heat asking locals for help. No one had heard of the hotel (including the horse carriages), so we ended up going back to the harbour and having the boat company call them.
We found that a number of hotels were not even close to where the booking websites have them listed on their maps.
The Manager who met us at the Harbour was extremely nice and helped us find another room for the same price. Too bad the place he found us was a dump....
I would highly recommend that you find one nights accommodation and get a feel for where you want to be on the island.
We found a much better place to stay with better amenities for $5USD more than we paid to stay here. Prices seem to be cheaper in person because you can haggle.
