Pros: Spent the weekend kiting there and everything accommodation related was great. Clean, spacious, well set up little cottage.
Cons: The bad.
Went to dinner one night, buffet was all that was offered which is a shame - usually the restaurant is excellent and actually worth the price. Not this time. The food was mediocre cafeteria quality at best, and the price was outrageous. 130 USD for two plates of rice, beans, and some chicken wings. No alcoholic drinks, no service, just the most expensive rice plate on the island.
Is what it is. But I felt that the price of dinner buffet should have been mentioned before the meal and not been a surprise after.
