The grounds were great. The rooms were dated and the exterior, walls, stairs, hallway carpet were just gross and very dated.
Service, tasty drinks & friendly staff.
Loud music playing from the speaker system until midnight and then again early in the morning when there were no events on. Expensive to hire tennis court and equipment- should be free for guests or at least discounted rate
Amazing. Loved the place.
Location and view.
Out dated, expensive for an old stale smelling room. Outside/ from the balcony you can see the building cracking and falling apart. It’s time for a big remodel. This was our splurge hotel this trip. I can honestly say there were 3 other spots on the island we stayed that were 1/2 or less than 1/2 the price and were way more comfortable and enjoyable to stay at.
Mattress and pillows very comfortable. Good location.
They are working to spruce up section that seems to have had water damage. Placed in that section. Parking has a nightly fee.
