We stayed for two weeks in mid- to late-January, and although we were a little apprehensive about the rain, it only hammered down for about ten minutes every day or two, and was otherwise extremely hot and sunny. We liked the style of the beaches, the quieter atmosphere and the breeze which kept us cool and the mosquitoes away. So many other 'swankier' hotels looked more impersonal, and it seemed you might have to walk miles just to 'nip back to your room' to get something, but not here. Other places didn't have as good sand or beach area, or snorkelling, so we definitely felt we had best value for money.
The hotel itself was small (70 rooms) and intimate - we really felt as if we got to know the other guests by sight or by chatting, and the staff were very courteous, helpful, very friendly and even fun! Facilities on the beach were superb, although of course it suffers from the same blight as other beach resorts in that you should get down there early to get your towel out (simply because everyone else does). A simple notice saying this is not allowed would solve this! We snorkelled for hours, and there were free daily trips out to the best place near the reef. I was taught to sail, went windsurfing, and took out pedaloes and canoes - all for free.
The food was buffet-style, and plentiful and tasty, with a good variety of cooked and salad. Breakfast was also as large as you want it, with a promptly-cooked style of eggs.
We can't believe we're not there any more! :-(
