It's not a bad resort but for a little more, you could do a lot better. I lucked out and got a room in the newer building and it was fairly nice and well air conditioned with a bolted down floor safe and fairly nice bathroom. The resort itself is towards the south side of the island and is about a 20 minute walk to the main parts of town. This is not far but when you are fighting mosquitos, drunkeness, or oppressive humidity, it can be far longer than you'd like. The resort does have it's own little agency, "Monkey Business Tours", that will book trips, dives, tours, and excursions for you on and off the island. They are pretty cool about taking care of you and even refunded us money for when a particular operator they used tried to rip us off. The restaurant is actually very good and I would recommend it no matter where on the island you stay.
For a little more money though, you could look around and probably stay at nicer resorts that are closer to town or really nice resorts far outside of town. This is a decent place to stay, but I would look elsewhere depending on budget.Recommended for:Business Travelers
