"Pros: very comfortable rooms, every lotion and potion you can think of provided.Friendly staff. Good supply of loungers under trees at the back of the beach. Food good, especially tapas in the bar upstairs. We ate there every night, airier and quieter than downstairs restaurant, just tying on after Happy Hour! Very reasonable prices for cocktails . . . Cons: troop of howler monkeys who woke us up with dawn chorus! Also balconies were small and looked over adjacent rooms. Recommend Ocean Suites, own daybeds and had ocean view "
