ON the negative side -rooms are certainly basic - the air conditioner is barely adequate. Bathroom smells. There are no activities so if it rains be prepared to read. Unless you are in top physical condition, jungle trekking is out since the trail is steep and difficult. There is also no walking on the beach because it is too small. Certainly the place is no frills.
On the positive side - food was excellent and the snorkeling right off the beach was awesome. Another positive is the remoteness of the place. You won't be snorkeling with 50 other people.
Be sure and bring everything you need because you can't even buy sunscreen at the hotel. We thought the staff could have been more helpful but they certainly provide the basics. So ti just depends on what kind of place you want. I would recommend because of the snorkeling.
