We had an excellent stay at this remote and lovely spot. The ultimate getaway if you're looking for peace and quiet. The food was great, the service was excellent and the casitas were beautiful. The location is great on a nice bay (no beach), but the staff are happy to take you to a nearby pristine beach or out snorkeling or just touring in the boat.
There are a couple of cons worth mentioning so that you go in eyes open.
First, the casitas are up a long flight of stairs, so if you have mobility issues I would give this resort a pass.
Secondly, it's on an island, so there's no access to amenities and the staff can't fulfill all requests. I found the wine list lacking (there were only two choices, one white and one red) and the bar didn't have any champagne (haha, well, they found a bottle for me in a storage room, but it wasn't on the regular menu). This isn't a huge issue and can probably be easily solved by planning ahead a little. If you like a certain type of liquor, snack, or fancy cocktail, or have specific dietary restrictions it might be worth asking ahead of time (ask Andreas or Luis) so that they can stock up in anticipation of your needs.
Finally, there are only two casitas on the island, so it's very quiet. That said, it can be really weird when you're a couple there for a romantic getaway and a group of people shows up to occupy the other casita. Your rooms are totally private and you do have private terraces and a plunge pool, but if you want to be by the ocean that is totally common space. Obviously, at any other resort you have to share with lots of other people, but somehow it's weirder when it's just two distinct groups.
From interacting with the staff it's clear that they are committed to providing the best possible experience for their guests and are working hard to fix some of the smaller issue with the property. I thought it was an excellent place - a bit of a quirky paradise!
