The location is great, situated at the top of a hill where there is a cool breeze and hardly any mosquitos. You are also a close walk to the beach and a short drive from the main action and beaches. There are also very nice walks nearby including an amazing waterfall walk up the river.
The owners/management have obviously put a lot of effort in, the place looks beautiful and the rooms and even pool are very well kept. There's a good quality feel to the place, well built and everything works. The owners/management were very useful with advice and bookings and had thought of nearly everything, like bbq, snorkelling and dvds for a quiet night in. They were also very pleasant company for the occasional poolside cocktail. We felt very much at home here and it was a shame to leave.
One thing to note: I'd advise having a hire car here, which I would advise for the island in general.
