  • 4.0.Fair

    I wouldn’t stay here again.

    I don’t complain much so I won’t here but I assume the owner doesn’t show up much to ensure his/her staff care about doing their jobs. Misinformation, very late to get things done (way more than island time) generally could care less if guests were there. Maintenance staff were pleasant though.

    The property looked a little rundown. Most of the staff were nice/pleasant but far from welcoming. Was very average. It was a good cheap place to stay - think motel.

    This has the potential to be a very nice hotel but presently it is very poorly run. The staff at the front desk were very nice and the waitresses very friendly but we had many issues. To start we had no hot water in our room so we called the front desk, they said they would look after it. About 4 hours later we had hot water but only for one day then it was turned off again so we had to ask them again. Then the cleaning staff did our room about 3pm and left us 0 towels, not even a face cloth. I called the front desk twice before we finally received towels at 5 pm with 0 face cloths. The staff member wasn't to impressed when I pointed out that we required face cloths as well. Another guest told us they asked for beach towels at 10 am and were told they weren't available until 5 pm. The restaurant is overpriced for example 2 pieces of french toast is 1 piece of thin bread cut in half for full price. We sat in the restaurant for over an hour with dirty dishes on the tables next to us while staff repeatedly walked back and forth. This hotel is average at best and that is being generous, I think there problems are mainly poorly trained staff and bad management and we will not be staying there again

  • 2.0.Poor

    This hotel offers things that they do not have, for example a beach that does not exists. They also offer you some items as a Refrigerator and they never put it on your room. There are cockroa in the hallways, bugs everywhere and a lots of mosquitoes in the rooms. The kitchen manager lives upset all the time.

    The place was very tired, We used it as a quarantine hotel but there was no room service. Breakfast was included but menu limited (4 choices) and lunch was available --around 4 choices and had to be ordered at breakfast. One facecloth was so worn it had a hole in it. No fitted sheets and the bottom ones tended to come unstuck all the time because they were not very big--probably not the most sanitary. The telephone broke and it was our only communication since we were not allowed out of the room. We need it to order dinners and to check for our results. It was replaced fairly promptly once we made the problem known. The toilet broke and the part was completely rusted--the repair person had to go to the hardware store for a new part. The staff was friendly and helpful and it is possible some of my review is due to the frustration of being stuck there for 6 days because our test results took over 100 hours to come back. There was a small balcony where we were able to eat, which was good because there were no table, only a pretty narrow desk in the room and a couple of bedside end tables. We took a very small low coffee table type plastic table from the hall and moved it to the balcony to put food and drinks on when we were eating. The hotel could have made it nicer by putting larger tables on the balconies in quarantine rooms. At one point we were the only customers.and when we left there were no customers. Air conditioning worked. Hot water worked in the bath/shower.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    All the staff was pleasant and helpful, from the front-desk staff to the kitchen staff to the bell hop. They ensured that I was comfortable and checked in on me if I did not order food from the kitchen to ensure that I was taken care of in terms of meals. I did not particularly like the bathroom area. It was a bit rough/worn. The rest of the room was fine. The pool view was really calming and pleasant. Overall, yes, I would stay there again and I would recommend it to others as well.
