My friend and I stayed at Freedomland for 4 nights in early April 2012.
The great: Rita and Peter; friendly, competent staff; wonderfully planned layout with bungalows surrounding the central office and kitchen; delicious options for breakfast and lunch; over the top wonderful dinners that you will want to photograph and savor; and opportunities to meet and get to know the other travelers.
The totally fine: the road to Freedomland can get muddy (it rained each night when we were there, which was wonderfully sleep inducing), but it is not bad and probably keeps some travelers away, which is fine by me; while not right on the beach, it is not far away (10 to 15 min walk) and I found it good to walk off a bit of the good and plentiful food I had been eating; the bungalows are not sealed off from the outside -- so we did share the room with a very large snail, fronts, geckos, a bat, biting ants (not bad -- just startling), and 1,000s of mosquitoes. Be sure to bring your bug spray if you want to avoid a lot of bites. Although the process of putting deet on top of suntan lotion and mixed into my perspiration became a bit tedious, I can appreciate that they do not spray their grounds with noxious chemicals.
Overall, our experience was great.
