Gorgeous place, good food and bar, excellent value. Nice staff and fun times around the campfire at night. Better for lounging (hammocks and lounge chairs everywhere!) than for swimming, as the water is only inviting at high tide. Location is remote, not a spot to use as a base for exploring the island, more somewhere to park yourself on the beach with a cocktail in your hand for a few days. My only complaint is they were difficult to reach by email to confirm/arrange pickup.


This place is amazing! The owner of the Lodge (I forgot his name, Cheby - I guess) is super nice, he makes you fell very comfortable. There is a restaurant in the place that serves delicious food (not so expensive) and the waiter was also a really nice person. Room was excellent and the beach in front is just marvelous. only problem was the dolphin trip (not organized by the lodge itself ). It was a very short time for the price we paid and not well organized.


Great place to stay if you want a chill, secluded spot on a beautiful beach. For the money, it's unreal. Private little beach with lounges, a bar, and restaurant attached. Great place to get away from everything. Ocean is just down the stairs from the beach and dolphin tours are the big attraction. Downsides: they weren't taking credit cards so you had to have cash on hand and it's really far/ expensive from the city and any ATM. if you want to get away from the crowds and just chill, its great.


Gorgeous location, rooms very dark and water very salty!
