The hotel itself is ok, the room is adequet with airconditioning and hotwater. The problem for us was the location. While the hotel is clean, you can not say the same for the rest of the island with rubbish everywhere including the water. There is nothing to do on the island except take a 20-30 min walk over the hills to the beach which always has a dangerous rip running and is not safe for swimming. The food served at the hotel is ok, but expect to wait a long time (over an hour) if there is a group of people there. if you want to go to the main island then it will cost you $3 for each person each way to get there. This can get a bit expensive if you are a family. Also expect loud music from the neighbours every day, at least it doesn't go too late.
