"I was leery because my room was the second from the restaurant, but it turned out to be very quiet there."
"Rooms closest to restaurant have better wifi, if you need to work, otherwise all are good."
"rooms furthest from the bar area would be the quietest"
"All rooms are very quiet, except for maybe the howler monkeys at night!"
"All the rooms we seen were to perfection all the way down to the Mattress as I am very picky when it comes down to sleep time.."
