눉The location is quite close to the airport which soon turns you into an expert of airplane types and schedules... inside the rooms it is perfectly insulated and you don't notice, outside it disturbs less than anticipated.
We really enjoyed our stay, so I'd rather suggest (than criticize) the hotel to make better use of the large patio and pavilion for the hotel guests. There are tables in one corner, but you need to carry them into the shade if you would like to sit and work/read/enjoy the place. A more comfortable sitting/sofa/deck-chair area in the shade of the pavilion would be really great. Also the balcony cannot be used in the afternoon because of the strong sun and no shade...
The nice breakfast could still benefit from more change (types of cheese, ham, strawberry jelly and bread)
The beach/sea is sooo close, but a swimming pool in the large patio under the palm trees would be really cool.
눇Small and calm hotel (only 6 rooms/suites). Nice construction with perfect view on palm trees and turquoise Caribbean waters and romantic sun-sets. The beach in front is not perfect, but also calm and mostly visited by local people. There is no large Casino-style hotel close where DJs are employed to play extremely loud music day and night at the pool side. There are 2 of the best restaurants close (The Pinchos is a romantic BBQ restaurant with delicious steaks and the fresh catch of the day) - directly in front of the Surfside Marina. The other one is the barefoot, with very good fish - directly at the beach, Dutch style.
For snorkeling from shore, the "house reef" is too far out. The beach is just behind the patio at 30 mts from your room and the water is just great.
The large cruise ships pass by in the evening in full light mode - impressive.
The free wifi is absolutely great which helps a lot if you have to follow your emails/work even during holidays. It works even on the balcony and in the patio. The staff is friendly and tries to accommodate your wishes. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need. The large fridge/freezer is comfortable and a coffee machine and a microwave help you with your snacks...
Lots of birds and lizards in the garden make you enjoy the nice breakfast on the balcony with the perfect sea-view even more.
