Amazing, hidden little treasure on the island. It is very relaxing and serene. The beach and pool are great. The only admission is food and drink. The staff are very friendly.

We practically had the place to ourselves. You have to buy 100 pesos worth of drinks per person for the lounge chairs, but to have the place to ourselves, it was worth it! The owner had planned to have food back on the menu this...More

It's not quite finished yet, but if you want a cool place to hang out with almost no people around, this is the place to do it. Funky old bar, great beach, lovely chairs, hammocks, the whole deal. No food, though.

If you get something from the bar, either food or drink, there is no charge for the beach or museum. Food was good. We also took a snorkel tour out of there that we highly enjoyed!
