With so many hotels to choose from, did not like the staff and would not recommend staying here. So many more resorts with better accommodations and friendlier staff. Small little property on the main street with minimal beach and small pool.

Firstly the staff here are amazing; Anderson, Shane and Michelle on the bar are just the best. Fabulous cocktails, friendly and accommodating. Only thing to note here is the bar states it is open until 11pm but the nights we were there it seemed everything closed down before then, sometimes by quite a lot. I’m not sure if this because the hotel was quiet. Also Michelle in the restaurant was so lovely! As were the others but unfortunately I didn’t get their names! Food was great, good choice of options and the menus changed regularly - they were even happy to accommodate if you wanted something off menu. Much better than a buffet option. Rooms were nice, all have a beautiful view over the ocean. We were room 305 which is central and the views of the ocean were uninterrupted. Everything was clean. My only recommendation here is that the bathrooms were pretty basic and do need updating, and if you have long hair washing it is an arduous task with the trickle that comes out of the shower head! You can also here the road noise quite clearly so maybe some new front doors? Other than that we were happy - we didn’t spend too much time in the rooms! Beach and the pool were lovely and quiet, always space for beds and nobody seems to reserve them and disappear off - which is refreshing! You can walk for miles along the beach too which is perfect for a morning walk as the sun is rising. On one occasion unfortunately late in the evening we did see a rat run across by the pool. We were under the understanding this is because of the close proximity to the boardwalk - however this is something that might put people off so would be good to have it sorted. It wasn’t anywhere inside the hotel though. Also please start putting water bottles in the room. We had to ask for water at the bar every day and sometimes there was limited supply. Overall, a fabulous trip in a beautiful small boutique hotel, we made some great friends too. Thank you to everyone for looking after us! Read less

Judith G reviewed this establishment in Oct 21. She said it all apart from the rats running about of an evening in the the pool area. The service at best was fair waiting up to 45 min for a basic meal far from amazing. Yes the location is good apart from the busy noisy road.

Find somewhere else to stay this place represents poor value for money and is overpriced. As for the island enjoyed our stay. We took a spin to the west and north coast very scenic. Read less
