This was a real find, the hotel is only accessible by water taxi, about 30 minutes from the mainland or 10 minutes from Boca. Owned by a lovely family who are delightful people. It's like a boat house or hotel on stilts. The rooms are beautifully wood lined with good beds, pillows and AC, you have your own balcony and there are hammocks at the top of the stairs. The sunrises and sunsets are magical, there is no traffic on the island, rush hour is just a few small boats going back and forth.
The food they offer is nothing fancy but freshly cooked and service by Louis is friendly and efficient, we had some fresh fish one evening, it was great. Red Frog Beach is a 10 minute boat rise away and worth a visit, it has good facilities. The main town is 10 minutes away, there are lots of bars and restaurants, quite a lively place. Stayed for 3 nights, could have stayed a week.
