This hotel was a nice change from the big chain hotels. The stairways to the rooms were surrounded by tropical plants. They have two very nice pools built to compliment the tropical environment. It was an easy walk to the main street in town where we found plenty of good restaurants.
The included breakfast was perfect for us. Lots of fresh fruit, rolls, breads that could be toasted, yogurt, cereals, coffee, tea, juices etc. We were always there early so we never had a problem with crowds as stated in other reviews. The room we had was very large, with a outdoor private balcony, a sitting room with the TV and kitchenette, the bedroom and the bath. The only problem we had was the air conditioner was in the bathroom in the back. Since the power was off when we were out of the room, It was warm when we returned from our daily adventures. The front room never really cooled off and when we took a shower in the bathroom, we froze.
The only other issue was that our room was on the 3rd floor, up a lot of stairs. We needed help getting our luggage up, but they did have a staff member do that for us. I assumed that for individuals who can not manage the stairs, they have 1st floor rooms available.
We found the management to be quite friendly. As we waited for our daily tours to pick us up, he came out and chatted with us. One day a woman came over from another hotel looking to buy a cup of coffee, and he gave her a pass so that she could get coffee free, even though she wasn't a guest. The lady in charge of the breakfast was so friendly that on the day we left, she kissed and hugged us!
