confusing experience but not without it's charms
Posted Feb 19, 2015
Simply put. This hotel which looks like it holds hundreds of people had between 8-15 guests the entire time we stayed -which was one week. This was during the busy season ( Feb, dry season ). Other hotels like nearby Sandals were teaming with tourists of all types. Now this was utterly weird to us, especially on our initial walk around the hotel and beach. There are 3 restaurants, but only 1 will be open a open once a day for a few hours so- if your hungry before 7pm but after 4pm- you're out of luck. Arranging for a taxi isn't as easy as you might think and they encourage you to book the driver in advance through the front desk. Not what I was expecting with a hotel of this size. The two biggest bummers where there were two menus at the restaurants and we got tired of the food, and the condition of the hotel is noticeably bad. Broken ice machines, bathroom door in our room didn't close or lock, wobbly railing on our ocean view room on the top floor (8th), outdated non HD tv with annoying lines across the screen, limited drink options. The whole place was operating on a shoe string budget. We popped for the ocean view room with a breakfast plan at around 300 US per night so overall not the fit and finish you'd expect for that cash. Redeeming qualities were the vacant beach, which is gorgeous! Felt nice to have it all to ourselves seemingly. If you plan on spending your entire trip at the hotel you might want to reconsider, the limited food options will bug you quickly.
