Comments Great hotel built over the water. Caters to divers with excellent service and their own dive operation. Clean large rooms with good AC and porch or deck. Room furnishings are simple but in good condition. All but one have water views. Good home style food. Free wifi with decent signal in most rooms and public areas. Located in town and easy walking distance to bars, restaurants, and mini grocery stores. Reasonable prices.

Has nice Club Lounge in waiting area open to the public which for $10 provides meal and an alcaholic or nonalcaholic drink, free wifi, lounge chairs.

Several ATMs at airport, but no bank.
Rooms: Only 8 rooms. All built over the water. Best rooms are close to dining room on 2nd floor.
Positives: Every room has comfortable queen bed plus twin with one small night stand and screened in deck overlooking water.Very clean.
