The staff could not have been anymore helpful or friendly. Car rental help, directions were spot on. I was a little disappointed with the walk to the main strip and/or beach. You must rent a car, in my opinion, to fully explore the island.

The Lazy Hostel was a lovely, homey hostel by the beach with a quaint tropical vibe. The staff is very friendly, helpful and the bar area is very fun. There are a plethora of scenic and picturesque beaches with white sands and turquoise water within walking distance. Given the location, the prices are fabulous. Don't let it being a hostel throw you off, the rooms are very clean and have towels and nice blankets. The bar at lazy jacks is open until 12:30 and there are very interesting people to talk to. I met a couple from Germany that I conversed with until midnight. Overall it was a marvelous quaint tropical beach place.

Very friendly manager. Nice swimming pool that we often had to ourselves. There is a non-touristy convenience store around the corner. The Malecon is a couple minutes away on foot, with several cool restaurants. We booked a tour of the Bio-luminescent Bay at Abe's, and they will pick you up at their storefront the night of your tour.
The window AC unit struggled to keep up, even while sustained at its highest setting, but the two ceiling fans helped to mitigate. No TV in room. Wifi did not work in the room - we had to move outdoors into a 'public area' nearer the building office to catch the signal.
Lots of interesting animals abound. There are small lizards all over (outside), maybe 4" long. Feral horses once you get away from the busy streets. A giant iguana scrambled into the pool once. There are roosters, as mentioned in other reviews. They're definitely noisy but it's not that disruptive with the windows shut and AC on.
Overall a cool place to stay.

I really liked the contemporary/retro design. The room was very nice and spacious ( I stayed in one of the bigger rooms). And the staff was pleasant and helpful. On the negative side, I have to mention that you hear the noise from the street and the bar but luckily the bar didn't get too loud while I was there. Also there was some construction going on during the day. No TV's in the rooms (I didn't care but my mom did). We liked it though, and would stay there again.
