My boyfriend and I stayed because it is close (by car) to Juana Dias where we were planning to attend the 3 Kings Festival. The property has character, with mangroves at your steps and lovely views of the coast. The staff is helpful and there are good restaurants in the local area!
I would recommend arriving during the day because it is a little hard to find. I could not find a map that accurately locates the hotel: maps on TripAdvisor and Booking.com show a different part of town, and GPS shows that the hotel is in the water... it's all part of the adventure!
The hotel restaurant was only opened part of the week (Thurs-Sun). The ceiling paint in our room was peeling and the A/C did not work (room 20). Other rooms may be different, so check out your room thoroughly before you unpack. Also, plastic coverings over our room window hindered the view of the mangroves and coast. However, you can enjoy the view from the dock, a restaurant patio, or an upstairs hotel patio area.
