The service was great from the start. I had rented a cabin with no AC and I was given the choice to upgrade to a regular room with AC at no extra charge. It is very close to the dive shops and across the street from the water. Although it's not a beach you can swim in because there is...

We stayed in one of the cabanas. No ac (which was expected), and no wifi in our room (which was not expected). It was a place to sleep and shower, but it was basic. Plenty of mosquito bites at night, which was fine if you slept under the sheets (which was unfavourable because of the no ac). It was a...

Stayed 2 nites here while we figured out our next move. $60 for a non ac room per night. Mosquitos and hot, did not make that mistake again. The place was very clean and the manager and staff were very nice and very helpful. The place is on the block so Capitol improvements might be off the table. 2.2$ million...

There's no frills here - the cabanas are small and basic, but this is not a complaint. It was exactly what we hoped for. Clean, friendly, far enough away to be peaceful but close enough for an easy stroll to everything convenient. We enjoyed affordable laundry service, free wifi, daily room service, prime beachfront location and Javier's local dining tips...

I just love this set up. I stayed in this hotel again and it was just as good as the last time. The rooms are spacious for the money, clean, the maid service cleaned the rooms everyday and refreshed the towels and wash cloths. I have left expensive equipment, money and valuables out in plain sight and nothing has ever...

We stayed in the Coco Cabana and it was lovely! The room is pretty basic, but it was clean and comfortable and exactly what we needed. We love the location! The view out our front door was spectacular and the hotel is located in a quieter part of the island. You are close to good restaurants and bars (We recommend...

We stayed on one of the cheaper runs towards the back, which are simple but clean and great if you are on a budget. The staff was very helpful with giving information and it has a lovely private dock in front of the hotel to chill out, although swimming isn't great as very shallow, but that is everywhere on that...

Very basic hotel in a good location. I stayed in the back in room three. It was as simple as you can get; bed, bathroom, refrig, and A/C. In general this is a place to stash your stuff while you experience the island and then come back to a comfortable bed. Not a hang out on site type of location....

We had a great stay here. The room was clean and there was a nice breeze coming off the ocean to make the room comfortable. You are off the main road so you won't have all the golf cart traffic. The staff will help you book activites and get you a cab if you need one to get the air...
