This was a quick business trip for me, only had to stay one night. Honestly it isnt a place i would chose for myself, but i wound up having a good time. It gave me the feel of Cheers... where everybody knows your name. The staff was very friendly. The rooms are not state of the art, they still have the old style flowery bedspreads (not a fan), the bathrooms are also pretty old (but clean). The rooms have screens in the bathroom and the front door so that you can let the natural air in. ( i am not a fan of geckos, iguanas etc which are all over, so i didnt use this feature.) My room also had a pretty huge balcony (also did not use). I may actually be giving an unfair rating based on my own fears of the bugs and wild life. All of the room doors are facing the outside... ( i prefer indoor hotels vs the motel set up). The pool is near the restaurant on site (dinner and breakfast were pretty tasty here). Wear pants though.... the mosquitos will devour your ankles (learned that the hard way). We played Trivial pursuit with the locals during dinner on tuesday... had lots of fun! The beach is very rocky... but according to the beach keeper, it has some of the best corals ever. They also allow for sunbathing however you like it. eh? there is nothing in walking distance from the hotel... and the cab to the airport was $30.
