We got what we expected. Hot sun, good rum and black sand beach. What we did not expect was how loud it is everywhere. It didn't depend on the language or nationality, there wasn't a quiet spot. Even on the beach everyone had their own music on top of the hotels.
The other thing is that the ocean is brown. There's a river that empties on the side of the hotel, so when is rains the ocean side of the hotel is brown. If you are a bit adventurous, pack your beach bag, bring something to drink and go over the other side of the rocks. There the water is bluer and quiet, almost like a deserted beach.
