I only stayed at the hotel for two days but I wish I could have stayed longer. The room I had was the Beachfront Lower Suite 1b. The room was very nice and clean. The balcony was great for sitting outside and relaxing the only con is that I was too short to see over the wall when sitting. The room is long shaped so you walk into the living room then straight back you have the kitchen on the left side and the bathroom on the right side. Continue walking straight you have the bedroom. The bedroom is the only room that is air continued but the fan in the living room really helps to keep that area cool. The bathroom is the only room with no real ventilation and gets hot but I just moved the fan to the door of the bathroom when showering. The signs in the room warn about making sure that trash is thrown away immediately and this is for good reason. While I was sitting outside, I left a glass out for just 30 minutes and had a family of ants making their home. I didn't have any issues inside the room but made sure all my trash was thrown away or in a sealed container. If I was too lazy to go to the trash in the evening I put the trash in a plastic bag in the fridge and threw it out in the morning. The pier was located directly in front of the room with direct access to the water.
Juan and his wife were super nice and when you check in, he gives you a summary of the island, some places to eat, where the supermarket is located and times that they are open. The information he gave me on arrival helped me out the first night. Wifi worked with no issues.
The TV is mounted flush to the wall you would be unable to plug in a Firestick but I never turned on the TV (too beautiful to sit in front of a TV).
I will definitely be back.
