Seeking feedback on Snapstone floating tile

I'm considering tiling the floor of a small cottage bathroom during its renovation. Time on-site is tight since I can only get up there about 1-2 weekends per month and I don't want to drag the bath renovation out. Snap-together tile costs more but I'm looking at it to save the prep time (thinset-cement board-thinset). Existing floor is 2 1-inch layers of pine t&g laid at right angles.
Is the material & the recommended grout any good?

Yep, it works well. Downside is not a lot of selection and, as you noted, the cost.

...or maybe vinyl?

This is for my cottage and I'm concerned that ceramic tile will be very cold underfoot in the cold months of the year. The crawlspace is untreated and when we come in for the weekend I turn up the heat (from 50F). It takes about an hour for the thermostat to be satisfied but the floors stay cold for ~24 hours.
Maybe I'd be better off with a vinyl plank floor? Some of the ones I've seen in offices & stores look really nice.

Judgment call. Typically, I would rather have cold ceramic than vinyl but this isn't my house.
