Amazing. Quiet beach with lovely people and food. Rooms are spacious, clean and are equipped with mosquito nets. The place is new, and plumbing isn't finished yet so we had bucket showers. Day excursions are available and the tree climb was spectacular! It's possible to spot manatees and dolphins here. We were able to drive here with a fully loaded heavy bike and two people.
