This is a family run hotel with a nice location right on the water in Bastimentos. You can even take a water taxi to and from a platform right off the dining area. Our comfortable room was on the top floor and there were several comfortable covered patios available including one off of our room, with a tranquil view out on the water. The kitchen is very clean and the simple breakfasts were nicely prepared. The kitchen staff is very personable and available all day to cook for you.
On the downside, our second night there was an unpleasant smell coming from the bathroom drain, although, water issues may be a reality of island life. The WiFi signal was very weak and I had to sit on the steps near the office in order to get a connection.
The owner, Lewis, is friendly and helpful. I would suggest that you visit the Up on the Hill shop and the Roots restaurant.
